Justin Bieber Loses His Swagger Coach
To paraphrase rapper M.I.A., no one on the corner has swagger like Justin Bieber, right? Well, The Biebs is losing his swagger … coach, that is! Wait, what?
The Biebs has split with his “swagger” coach, who goes by the name Ryan Good. The Biebs’ manager Scooter Braun tweeted yesterday about the dissolution of the relationship, posting: “All u asking..ryan is going to pursue some of his dreams…we encourage him 2 go after his. he will always b a part of this family. always,”
The Huffington Post reports that Good was officially labeled “road manager” and he was once an assistant to Usher, who is The Biebs’ mentor and collaborator on his holiday album. In his role as “swagger coach,” Good was asked to help shore up the teen’s image. The Biebs did not hide the fact that he actually had a swagger coach, saying that “he teaches me different swaggerific things to do. He has helped me with my style and just putting different pieces together and being able to layer and stuff like that.”
Judging from that statement, a swagger coach is sort of like a personal stylist? How does one teach the art of the swagger? Is it not innate? Does it need fostering? So many questions, so few answers.
