Are you kidding me right now?! The world is mourning the death of Prince who is one of the greatest musicians and entertainers of our generation. No one will EVER compare to Prince. His talent in my opinion as a musician, singer/songwriter, and performer, is unmatched in today’s music.

A guitarist by the name of Andrew Watt shared his thoughts on the death of Prince referring to him as, “the last of the greatest living performers.”

Justin Bieber apparently knows this guy and commented on his post and THAT set the internet on fire. Bieber left the comment:

Well not the last greatest living performer.

This past Tuesday night before my show I was picking out an outfit…I was so tired from the past week of endless traveling and gigging that I grabbed my Prince shirt and said fuck it I'm gonna channel the purple one tonight…I didn't shower after the gig out of pure exhaustion…I went to sleep in that shirt and then I wore it again all day yesterday…today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself…devastated…the last of the greatest living performers…my guitar idol…his connection to ALL his instruments yielded a sexual transcending aura and the world is just less fucking cool without him walking on it… "Electric word life It means forever and that's a mighty long time But I'm here to tell you There's something else… The after world" #RIPPRINCE

A post shared by WATT (@thisiswatt) on

I’m a Justin Bieber fan so lets put that out there, but I’m a bigger Prince fan. What a rude comment to make on a day where every other artist is paying their respects. I’m sorry but this wasn’t the right time for Bieber to give himself a shameless plug. Artist like Justin Timberlake and Beyonce are way before you kid on the list of greatest living performers. What do you think of that comment? Sound off below.
