Dear Justin Bieber

Are celebrities like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga responsible for the behaviour of their fans?

Some music fans, Gaga’s Little Monsters for instance or Bieber’s Beliebers, are notorious for their extreme behaviour when it comes to defending their idol. Should the celebrities they so ardently worship correct them when they go too far?

It was considered so sexist that it was actually banned from Edinburgh University as well as from quite a few other universities in Britain and the US.

Gun control?

In December a deranged youth shot twenty primary school children. Isn’t it about time the Americans introduced a form of gun control?

In the wake of the Newtown school shooting the debate on gun control flared up again. But this didn’t stop people from giving their loved ones what they really wanted for Christmas: guns. Among the most popular models was the Bushmaster AR-15, the gun Adam Lanza used to kill 28 people in Newtown earlier in the same month …
