Buckhead does not want Justin Bieber as a neighbor.
A new “Protest Justin Bieber Moving to Buckhead” Facebook page has been started by the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition.
“As a community here in Buckhead, we have worked hard to achieve our goals and get to where we are,” its mission statement says. “Justin Bieber’s relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community. Some can’t even let their children play in the driveway without fear; he has raced vehicles under the influence before. What’s to say he won’t do it again? As a homeowner down the street from this residence, one can assume many people will be contacting real estate agents soon enough. Please do not allow a child to ruin what we have worked so hard to obtain. Thanks for the support!”
The freedom fighters evidently plan to picket outside the Blackland Road mansion Biebs reportedly has been eyeing.
Bieber hasn’t specifically addressed this anti-Belieber movement but he appears to know what’s up.
“I guess I’m an easy target for some,” he said in a recent Twitter post. “I’m still human. I will continue to meet hate with love. It’s all about the music. Much love.”
He followed that up with “Thanks to all those Beliebers out there inspiring me everyday” and “Keeping it positive always.”
Buckhead resident Ron Sands would like Bieber to be on his way.
“The part of the road that I travel on everyday is loaded with spectators,” he said. “It’s a well established neighborhood that we like to keep quiet, private, and safe.”
Resident Vicki Palefsky responded with her customary grace.
“Frankly, my dear, I think he is a gnat on the windshield of life and what he does is of zero importance to me, unless he impinges on the rights of others while doing so,” said Palefsky. “Thank God I am not his mother or this would be a different story entirely however.”
Bieber – sorry, make that “Bizzle” – has been back in Atlanta for several weeks now working on a new recording project. He has been spotted at an east Cobb County ice rink, an area Zaxby’s, the Phipps Plaza movie theater and partying with other artists including Jermaine Dupri, Diddy and Rick Ross.
“Back in my second home,” he tweeted not long after getting to town. “Good to be back. Focused on building up positive energy.”
He followed that one up with a post showing himself and artist T.I. in the studio.
Things haven’t been so great in Bieber’s legal life lately. He got back into town after getting arrested in Miami and turning himself in to authorities in Toronto to respond to a charge that he attacked a limo driver.
He’s renting producer Dallas Austin’s uniquely designed home at the moment and reportedly wishes to plant permanent roots here. Not in Buckhead, if the protestors prevail.
