Now, we know that Justin Bieber didn’t invent the term “swag” but when he called himself a “swaggy adult” in a recent GQ profile we couldn’t get the word out of our heads. Justin’s big on lyrical themes of love and affection, but in his latest album Believe, he also proves that he’s got style and wealth, which we think perfectly defines “swag”. These are his 10 swaggiest lyrics…
“Swag swag swag, on you / Chillin by the fire while we eatin’ fondue”
“I could be your Buzz Lightyear fly across the globe / I don’t never wanna fight yeah, you already know / Imma make you shine bright like you’re laying in the snow”
Fondue by fireside and diamonds? He knows how to treat a lady.
“As long as you love me / I’ll be your platinum, I’ll be your silver, I’ll be your gold”
Justin will also probably buy you platinum, silver, and gold so there’s that…
“No cause I just wanna love you / I would never ever put nobody up above you”
Whoever he’s talking about (Selena, we presume) is a very lucky gal.
“Well did you know you’re an angel? who forgot how to fly / Did you know that it breaks my heart everytime to see you cry”
Being swaggy means that you don’t get self conscious about sharing sappy feelings every now and then.
“I fell victim to your style / It’s so amazing, girl you’re in your own league”
We all know that having swag means having style, so it looks like JB’s gal is just as swagged up as he is!
“We gonna party like it’s 3012 tonight / I want to show you all the finer things in life”
Um, is there anything more SWAG that partying in the FUTURE? We think not…
“It didn’t matter how many times I got knocked on the floor / But you knew one day I would be standing tall / Just look at us now”
You don’t just need to be cool to have swag: you need to be able to roll with the punches and deal with whatever life throws at you.
“If you feeling me, let me know, we gon’ ride the flow-ow-ow-ow / I could be your passport, tell me where you wanna go-o-o-o”
Justin is so swaggy he can take you anywhere you wanna go. He’s serious.
“She was dying for my affection / And she keep making up and give it to ‘em / I’m talking to you / Maria”
Oh please, Maria. That was pretty un-swaggy of you to claim that your baby was fathered by Justin Bieber! Don’t you know swagsters don’t play him like that?
What do you think is Justin’s swaggiest lyric? Are you sick of the word “swag” yet? (The clinical term is swag-fatigue…)
