The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle Wrote A ‘Short Song For Justin Bieber’s Paparazzi’

By 03.11.13

So, remember when the Internet cause of the day was trying to nominate John Darnielle as the next U.S. Poet Laureate? Yeah, let’s get back on that because the Mountain Goats frontman wrote a 90-second song that actually makes you feel for Justin Bieber. It’s called “Short Song for Justin Bieber’s Paparazzi,” and it’s about how Swaggy Bro is a celebrity, so he signed up for the constant media pressure, but c’mon, guys, don’t be an asshole about it.

“You don’t have to leave Justin alone/But don’t be an asshole.” Pinsky never wrote anything that good.
