If you could choose, who would YOU be like?
Great news! You can choose.
Both Bieber and Cash went through some tough times in their lives. And it was all very public.
Johnny Cash started off singing Gospel music and served in the U.S. military.
Justin Bieber is… Canadian who has praised Canada as the greatest country in the world because of their socialized healthcare system. Which was knocked out in the first round when comparing comparable systems around the world.
Speaking of Canada, the pair have a weird connection to one city in Canuckistan — London, Ontario. Bieber was born there, and a mere 26 years earlier, in 1968, at a live performance in that same southern Ontario city, Johnny Cash proposed to second wife, June Carter.
Johnny and June were married for 35 years, continuing to make music together and touring until June’s death in 2003. June stayed with Johnny despite his battle with addiction, and trips to rehab.
Contrast with on-again, off-again, on-again(?) Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez relationship.
Johnny Cash has that ultra-cool baritone voice.
Bieber… well, not so much.
Then there’s this new study on psychopaths and their musical preferences.
Wallisch and Leal looked for correlations between preferences for certain songs and the students’ scores on the psychopathy scale. They identified about 20 songs that seemed to be particularly popular or unpopular depending on the listener’s level of psychopathy…
…Among the songs with the highest correlation were Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” the Academy and Grammy award-winning rap song popularized in the 2002 movie “8 Mile,” and Blackstreet’s “No Diggity,” which ousted “Macarena” for Billboard’s top spot in 1996. Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean” was also popular with those students who scored high on the psychopathy scale. On the low end were Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing,” the much-covered country tune “Wayward Wind” and The Knack’s 1979 pop-rock hit, “My Sharona.”

The study hasn’t been peer-reviewed, but hey, that’s good enough for me.
Johnny Cash had his own unique sound. There is no one that sounded like he did.
Besides, who wouldn’t want to be like the ‘Man In Black’?
And who wouldn’t want their guy to be like Johnny Cash?
This shirt is for the bro who’s not buying this hipster, boy-band, man-bun, skinny jeans wearing bullshit and prefers to kick it old school like Johnny Cash. Subtly tell the snowflakes around you, via the medium of this shirt, to quit being a foppish puss and grow a pair.
Johnny Cash was a badass.
We need more badasses.
And not the namby-pamby badass wannabes like ‘The Biebs’.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
