What we were expecting:
When Justin Bieber first announced that his laptop had been stolen earlier this year, I was quick to feel bad for the 18-year-old pop star. After all, that's a violation of privacy and anyone who's ever had anything stolen from them knows what an awful experience it is. But when a suspicious person came forward on Twitter who claimed to be the thief and then threatened to expose some terrible awful videos that Bieber had hidden away on his hard drive, and then Bieber responded to them, things started getting a bit weird.
What we got instead:
It all ended up being an elaborate publicity stunt that ended in the release of the "Beauty and the Beat" music video, but it was such a let down that I doubt I'll ever be able to hear that song again without being annoyed.
