Justin Bieber, Defensive Much?

Justin Bieber was a little upset and wanted all the “haters” to know that he really did write his rap in “Won’t Stop.” The Bieber opus is off Sean Kingston’s mixtape King of Kingz and also features B.O.B., Soulja Boy Tell’em, Flo Rida and Akon.

According to MTV’s poll results, Justin could stand to work on his rap skillz some.

But anyhow, since he brought up the word “haters,” it’s as good a time as any to take a look at the evolution of that particular word. It really used to be a good word, ya know, to describe people who were always critical, who love to spit out poison and always have something nasty and mean to say. It was a great one-word way that summed up these types precisely.

Nowadays if you genuinely disagree, dislike or even question anything — you’re a hater. How we hated to see the word “hater” go the way of overuse and misapplication that befalls many a useful word. Everyone who doesn’t think you are the greatest thing since sliced bread isn’t a “hater.’ People can question without being haters. Many skeptics have become believers, if not Beliebers.
