Justin Bieber’s New Emojis Continue To Show He Can Laugh At Himself, Brilliantly

Move over Kim Kardashian. Justin Bieber’s new emoji app was released on Friday morning. Naturally, #Justmoji trended on Twitter shortly after the app appeared in the iTunes App store.

The good news? For just $2.99 USD (£2.29 for UK users) purchasers of the official Justin Bieber keyboard app get to romp through some of the most iconic, not to mention infamous, moments in the superstar’s life by downloading the “hundreds of exclusive high-quality, premium stickers, gifs and expressions” of Bieber or are inspired by him.

The Biebs’ emojis feature a cartoon version of the Canadian singer displaying and showcasing various aspects of his personality and image, in a variety of clothes, styles, and at different stages in his career. Once you’re Justmoji-enabled, you can put your Biebs-related images into tweets and texts. There’s also a meme maker. As of yet, the Justmoji app is only iPhone and iPad compatible, but Android users can get their hands on it in Google Play next week.

So, what do the Justmojis look like? Well, there’s a gif of a pensive Biebs sitting on a swing. Another of the singer traveling on a private plane. There’s a topical emoji of the star cowering behind a sign which reads “No Photos,” which references Bieber’s recent “No Photos” policy following encounters with over-demanding fans.

The 22-year-old is seen chowing down on a chicken drumstick, breathing fire, crying, and the famed Bieber tattoos are in there, too. And, the singer’s favorite things get a shout-out: Calvin Klein boxers, a luxury car, Purpose World Tour merch, a Bible, the Canadian flag, a guitar, Esther the puppy, an abs emoji, messages including “Good Luck,” “LOL,” “Wait!””Nah,” a plaid-wearing Biebs holding a sign with customizable text, song titles, and tons more.

There is also a fantastic streak of self-deprecating humor running through the Justmojis, referencing the Justin Bieber scandals of yesteryear. Namely, one emoji of the heartthrob covered with egg yolk, which harks back to the time he egged a former neighbor’s house, the mop bucket peeing episode, and other teen-like snafus.

And that’s all kinds of brilliant. Just as the Biebs’ showed in his Comedy Central Roast last year, an ability to laugh at his most embarrassing moments — after expressing remorse — is a great quality to have. It allows others to laugh with him instead of at him, and reframes past face palm moments.

Earlier this week, the Biebs teased the upcoming release of his app. Based on reactions to the Justmojis, they’re going to be all over Twitter timelines from this point on.

The superstar is just the latest celebrity to jump on the emoji app train. The likes of Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, Fetty Wap, Future, and Blac Chyna have gone before the Biebs. But, it has to be said, Bieber’s app delivers a terrific collection of fun, iconic mix of images and messages.

Take a look at some of our favorite Justmojis below.

The Biebs has been open about the fact he is very emotional. Notably, he burst into tears after performing his comeback single “What Do You Mean?” at the MTV Video Music Awards. Since then, there have been more public tears from the singer.

Who could forget the TMZ-obtained video of a tipsy Justin peeing in a janitor’s mop bucket and spraying a picture of Bill Clinton with cleaning fluid, while saying, “F**k Bill Clinton?”

Then, there was the time Justin egged his neighbors’ house in Calabasas and, well, you all know the rest. This time, the egg is on him.

Back in January 2014, Bieber was arrested and charged on suspicion of a DUI and resisting arrest without violence in Miami. 2015 marked a maturer perspective and behavior from the singer.

“Heartbreaker” anyone? Not only the first single from Justin Bieber’s 2013 Journals project, but also a major part of the superstar’s crooner image. In short: Justmojis are on brand and here to stay.
