Biebs Takes It Off
The newly-single star is becoming a bit of a show-off. Read More »

Given Justin Bieber‘s recent love of tweeting out shirtless photos of himself, perhaps we should be glad he was wearing anything at all. But still, you might expect him to dress it up at least a little when meeting the leader of his native country, Stephan Harper — Prime Minister of Canada. Then again, when you give a medal to an eighteen-year-old pop star, you kind of get what you paid for.

Fortunately both the Biebs and the PM made jokes about the situation. See another photo and their tweets after the jump.

“I met the Prime Minister in overalls lol,” Justin tweeted in typical teenage fashion, with the below photo.

The Prime Minister made a funnier crack about the situation on his own Twitter:

“In fairness to @justinbieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls too.”

Is it okay for the Biebs to wear overalls to meet the Prime Minister, or should he have put a little more polish into his outfit? What say you?

    The biebs should show a little respect for our country and leader. Young people r bowing down before him n paving his way in gold. Is it not worth the trouble to put on a pair of pants? Do we need to reinforce the idea that we r ‘hicks’ around the world

  2. I just don’t understand why he received the Queen of Canada’s Diamond Jubilee Medal but if the Prime Minister of Canada is going to present it to you – Umm, ya get a little “Dapper Dan” in appearance .

    What can you expect from a slimy little twerp like him. He obviously has no respect for anyone. Life is all about him and screw the rest of the world

    What the hell is he getting a medal for?

    He looks so stupid… He obviously seems to think too much of himself to do that. I could see him wearing something that’s not a suit but something decent looking at least jeez. He needs a reality check.

    To be recognized by our Prime Minister is a honour. We should be much more selective as to who we might honour, and look at sacrifice to country, innovation that makes a difference to our health and welfare, and efforts above and beyiond the call of duty.
    Justin has a chance to be a tremendous role model for young people and should take this opportunity very seriously. In today’s world where respect and honour seem to be lost, we need to work hard to develop good citizens who are considerate, kind and respectful. Let’s try to make a difference in this world.

    I can imagine that this must be a red flag to the somewhat older and often medal-less ex 1980′s and 90′s service types. Some, I have noted, had been campaigning for inclusion in the recent Diaomond Jubilees medal criteria……. or for a National or Defence service medal to reflect their years of service….. neither succesfully… too many deaf ears I think!

    I understand that the usual responce from the powers that be is that they will not be lowering the standard of medal awards to include those that ‘only’ served in the past……

    My gut feelin on this award to Master Bieber?…. it does seem inappropriate….. and in denying old soldiers, sailors and airman access to that gong, and then inviting Master Beiber to recieve it…… well the decision makers have gazzumped themselves.

    Everyones wants an award system that is respected. This doesn’t help!
