With nearly 18 million Twitter followers — one million for every year he's been alive — Justin Bieber can't slip peacefully into adulthood the way most of us do. From the moment the clock struck midnight on March 1, 2012, fangirls of all ages were ready to welcome the Biebs to a new and even bigger stage in his already enormous career, one beyond the protective walls of upper lip peach fuzz and statuatory rape laws. Bieber, they collectively said, you's a man now.

But not everyone found cause to celebrate. Some were puzzled, some angry, and some — a little antsy about apocalopytic prophecies — curled themselves into a fetal position and hummed "baby, baby, oh baby," now an Old World anthem.
