Justin Bieber’s pivot from bad boy to outspoken Hillsong nut is one of the most upsetting career trajectory’s I’ve witnessed. I don’t have a problem with Bieber’s embrace of evangelical Christianity, it’s just that it lacks an element of chicness. It’s the kind of religious practice that reminds me of people I went to high school with that share Collective Shout petitions on Facebook campaigning to stop Honey Birdette from using “porn-style” advertising in family-friendly shopping centres.
Hopefully, Bieber is in the midst of a religious rebrand. On Sunday, Justin Bieber made an appearance at Kanye West’s Sunday Service in Los Angeles, where he performed a sumptuous cover of Marvin Sapp’s ‘Never Would Have Made It’. It’s impossibly voguish, check out a clip of the performance below.

Bieber released his latest album, Changes, on February 14th. The record topped the Billboard 200 chart — marking it Bieber’s seventh #1. This milestone achievement makes Bieber the youngest solo musician to achieve seven #1 albums, overtaking Elvis Presley.
