Justin Bieber's stylist has come to his defence after being criticised by Nirvana fans for wearing one of the band's T-shirts at a recent awards ceremony.
Bieber's stylist Karla Welch spoke to Esquire
Stating that 'It’s 2015. Wearing a Nirvana shirt is like wearing a Beatles shirt: no one should take it as a personal affront. Everyone knows a Nirvana song, no one is special or alternative or whatever for liking a band that was literally the biggest in the world in the early ’90s. Sorry!'
Anyway, now Justin Bieber’s stylist has given an interview to Esquire about her client’s look, and she did, in fact, respond to “controversy” surrounding whether or not Bieber actually likes Nirvana:And there have been a couple of band tees, like the Metallica shirt recently and the Nirvana tee he wore for the AMA red carpet. Where did those come from?'Actually, it’s not the first time he’s worn a Nirvana tee. We just have a nice collection of vintage tees, and then the tee he wore yesterday was actually Jerry Lorenzo's from Fear Of God. Jerry takes vintage tees and re-cuts them. But yeah, of course he’s a fan of Nirvana. I think it’s so funny that all these people are up in arms. I’m sure Kurt Cobain would be like—I mean I can’t speak for him, obviously—but I don’t think he was so snotty or that he would diss anyone who appreciated his music. I think he understood that that is like the antithesis of music appreciation. It’s so funny. But you know, fans are fans!'
But the real question the Nirvana fans want to ask is Hey Justin, do you actually listen to nirvana or is Kurt Cobain’s life just a fashion statement to you?
