Celebrity fashion doesn’t always make sense to regular people, but there are times when A-listers take their unique looks one step too far and cause an uproar. That happened at the 2022 Grammy Awards Sunday night when recording artist Justin Bieber showed up in a comically oversized Balenciaga suit so extreme that his hands weren’t visible in the massive sleeves. He also wore platform Balenciaga crocs and a pink beanie hat.
Social media reactions to the statement-making outfit were swift and brutal.
“How do you look in the mirror and be like yeah im [sic] going with this,” one person wondered.
“Justin Bieber said give me the biggest suit you can find. Please & thank you,” another said.
“If you’re looking for Justin Bieber on the red carpet just look for the giant walking suit #GRAMMYs,” a fan tweeted.
Another wrote, “Bro wtf is Justin Bieber wearing. He looks like he got into his daddy’s closet and stole one of his suits.”
“Shout out to Balenciaga for designing a #GRAMMYs suit for Justin Bieber using @SHAQ’s measurements,” a Twitter user quipped.
Bieber was nominated for eight awards at this year’s event including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year for “Peaches.” The singer already had two Grammy Awards to his name and this was his first Grammys appearance since 2016.
The 28-year-old star removed his big jacket at the event and just wore a white tank top, but then caused further controversy later when he performed the Grammy-nominated single “Peaches” while wearing shiny black leather pants. This inspired many comparisons to Ross Geller from “Friends.”
Ultimately, Bieber did not win any Grammys and still has two wins out of 22 nominations, which fans consider an unfair snub.
Viewers also noticed Bieber and his wife Hailey being extremely affectionate on the red carpet while arriving at the event. This comes weeks after Hailey suffered “stroke-like symptoms” while having breakfast one morning and had to be rushed to the hospital.
“They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which causes a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours,” the model shared to social media, The Daily Wire originally reported.
Multiple outlets reported that Bieber never left her side throughout the ordeal.
A source told People that the “Love Yourself” singer was “probably more traumatized than even she is” from the medical emergency.
“When it happened, there was a lot of panic. Justin texted everyone he knew and asked everyone to pray for her, and he never left her side,” the source explained.
“He was saying that he can’t lose her, that whatever it takes, he wanted the best medical treatment available,” they continued.
The pair has been married for three years.
