Tbh, I'm kind of conflicted with this whole thing. And the weird part of it is that the whole going to a strip club part never bothered me. I almost felt like it was cool that he was doing things that guys his age seem to enjoy doing.I feel like these ppl (young celebrities) can really miss out on a lot bc of the career they chose to pursue. (By no means do I feel sorry for them, though.)But, his strip club explanation was so clearly thought out and seemed kinda douchey, tbh. It was funny, but so contradictory to the way he regularly handles himself. Unless the whole 'I want to be known for how I act onscreen, not off," "I want to stay out of page six," "we're so boring," "we're home bodies," and everything else he has always said has been complete bs I can't really buy the strip club thing after all. Which is disappointing, and I really don't understand the thought process.

Frankly, had everything about this whole thing been legit, I think his response on JK would be much more of , it happened and it wasn't a big deal. Instead of his lil rapper monologue.

i think though that he probably did think out his answer possibly just because he knew jimmy would talk about it and it was awkward. not necessarily that it was a planted story. i still don't know how i feel about that part of it or whether that is true because i just don't know, something isn't adding up.

but i do think the contradicting his constant like 'oh i just think harder about these things and their consequences' and/or 'i just am not in that scene/i'm boring' proclamations is veering dangerously close to the tipping point on hypocrisy and extreme douchiness. i don't think he means to be but you can't play the game two ways and come out unscathed.

he just needs to drop some of the pretentious righteousness. we aren't like some selena stans (oh snap, sry if it offends anyone), we don't like expect him to be perfect or make every decision for the fans. i do expect him to be fairly smart and even if he makes a bad decision or two, expect him not to think he's above the consequences and to not be a moron and toot his own horn about his perfection when he knows full well he's not. good example coachella. but w/e. it's early i'm probably rambling too much for my own good.

Nah, you're not rambling too much.

And, I think you hit the nail on the head, my problem is not the strip club (or even really the planted story possibilities), it's just the contradictory/hypocritcal-ness of it all.

He's 22, and he can do whatever he pleases, but, it's like he behaved completely differently last night than he has this entire promo. And every other promo for that matter. IDK, it's like be who you are, we know he's not a saint. I just am not crazy about how he plays the 100% good guy card and then plays up the strip club visit. IDK.

I think that I just didn't make any sense, but basically I get what you're saying and I agree.
