Top Five Celebrity Comebacks (In Honor of Justin Bieber)

Screen-Shot-2015-11-02-at-1.17.40-AM.png This is the year our generation has been waiting for… what a time to be alive. Justin Bieber has released new music.

Finally, a new anthem for all the parties you'll be attending, because nothing says “I love this song” more than drunk girls screaming it at the top of their lungs while fucking up the songs lyrics.

Do you hear that? It is the faint sound of prepubescent girls around the world screaming. Why are they screaming? Because Justin Bieber is back and is hotter than ever before.

Looking back, we never thought this glorious day would ever come. There was a (dark) time when the Biebs was no more than just a fuckboy. All he did was party, spend a shit ton of money on dumb shit, and get into legal trouble (he did look flawless in his mug shot though). After a while, we stopped expecting much from him. We were all like, “Oh, there goes Justin again, pissing in buckets and cursing out Bill Clinton. Classic Bieber.” But Justin has officially turned himself around– pissing in buckets and talking shit about Bill Clinton in the privacy of his own home.

He is on top of the world right now and he is about to release a new album. The 21-year-old superstar went from one of the most laughable celebrities to one of the most demanded artists in the music industry in what felt like a millisecond.

Justin isn’t the only person who was able to ask, "is it too late now to say sorry” to his fans and prove that he is not a joke. These are the top 5 celebrity comebacks:

Nicole Richie

Richie started her career on The Simple Life, a TV show in which she became popular for doing dumb shit and sounding like an idiot. After the show ended, she was partying (a lot) and allegedly using drugs. She was arrested for failing a field sobriety test and spent a few days in jail. After that, Richie turned her life around by marrying Joel Madden (the love of my life during my angsty teen years) and starting her own clothing line, House of Harlow. She now has two kids with Joel, is still running House of Harlow, and has a hilariously funny TV show on Vh1 called Candidly Nicole.

Britney Spears

Everyone knows this story. Mega pop star who shaved her head and then attacked a car with an umbrella. Yeah, that seems like enough to end a career, but as her hair began to grow back... so did her rep. Britney has released albums, started a clothing line, and has a renewed her three-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas that is reportedly worth $30 million.

Matthew Perry

Aka Chandler on Friends– or as I like to call him, “the worst character on the show”. Sorry not sorry, it’s the truth. During his time on Friends, Perry struggled with an alcohol and drug problem. He ended up in rehab, but is now the star of the show The Odd Couple.

Betty White

PSA: Betty White is not dead (it is the most frequently asked question about her on Google). She is actually still killing the game more than ever. Betty is most known for her role on Golden Girls, which ran for basically 100 years in TV time. The show ended in 2000, but not because Betty thought she was hot shit and turned into a diva and then had a public meltdown. After a few years of just chillin’, Betty started killing it again even though she is basically 100 years old (she is currently 93 years young). She began starring in new movies and even started her own show, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers. Not every comeback has to be dramatic, but they're certainly more entertaining when they are.

Robert Downey Jr.

You may ask, “Why is Ironman on this list?” Well, long before he was making millions by being the face of the Ironman franchise (and long before most of us were born), he was arrested multiple times for drug possession and even spent close to a year behind bars. At the time, no one wanted to work with him, until he got his shit together and turned himself around. Now, he is one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood.

Moral of the story: even the saddest, most lost celebrities can find their way out of a shit hole with the right kind of luck… and for Britney Spears, with a full head of hair.
