Published Mar 12, 2013Lead Mountain Goat John Darnielle definitely isn't the first person to record a song about Justin Bieber with his webcam, but he might be the one with the most indie cred. He has unveiled a brief ditty called "Short Song for Justin Bieber and His Paparazzi."
This self-explanatory number was filmed with a crooked and uncomfortably close-up webcam. The bespectacled singer strums his way through a short acoustic tune about the Bieb's recent clash with the paparazzi. While he notes that the singer "chose this life," he adds, "You don't have to leave Justin alone / But don't be an asshole."
We're not entirely sure this one will increase Darnielle's chances of becoming the U.S. Poet Laureate. It's streaming below.
