Dear Justin Bieber

Dearest Justin,

We don’t really know each other, since a) no young girls live in my home, and b) my car radio rarely leaves NPR. I know the girls (and probably some boys) think you’re hot/cute/totally awesome, but I have to tell you that people here in Hartford aren’t too happy with you right now.

When your target audience is an 11-year-old girl, you really can’t start your concert an hour-and-a-half late. Yes, it’s summer, but some kids had camp the next morning, and many parents (who obviously need to drive a large percentage of concert-goers home) had work the next day.

I’m sure you hate it when people compare you with other artists but just to let you know … I went to a 7:30 p.m. Jackson Browne concert last week and guess what time he started. That’s right, he started at 7:30 p.m. See that? Totally respectful of people and their time.

Go ahead, play that game where you pretend you’re all done and then you come back onstage for an encore. Fans are used to that sort of thing. But regardless of your talent or popularity, don’t make people wait for no good reason.

If you were my boyfriend, I’d be wicked mad right now.
