Justin Bieber Mocks Prince William's Thinning Hair
"I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia," the popstar said of the royal's thinning hair.
Pop prince Justin Bieber demonstrated some rather unroyal behavior when he took Prince William to task over—of all things—his hairline.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Rollercoaster magazine, Bieber asked why William hasn’t pursued treatments to combat his thinning hair.
“I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia,” Bieber said. “I don’t know why he doesn’t just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?”
Not everyone agrees with Bieber's prescription, as health experts point out William would have to take Propecia for the rest of his life, and even then it wouldn't help him sprout new hair. It’s also known for sexual side effects, such as a lowered libido.
Those in Britain didn’t take kindly to Bieber’s comments, and unleashed a flurry of tweets shoring up William against the Canadian singer's attack.
Justin "Leif Garrett" Bieber is of no consequence. Wills is going to be King, the fifth William to be crowned since WtC in 1066. Beat that.— MandysRoyalty (@mandysroyalty) August 6, 2012

The British aren't the only ones Bieber has angered as of late. He attracted the ire of his own countrymen by claiming his aboriginal heritage entitled him to free gas in Canada.
"I'm actually part Indian," Bieber said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. "I think Inuit or something? I'm enough percent that in Canada I can get free gas."
Canada’s Congress of Aboriginal Peoples said the claim was untrue, and typified the misconception that aboriginal people received a free ride.
