JJ Redick Explains Why He Attended a Justin Bieber Concert

by January 28, 2013

Orlando Magic sharpshooter JJ Redick was cornered by the media and asked to explain why he experienced Bieber-mania on Friday night. Well, it turns out that Redick’s wife made him go to the concert, or so he claims. Per the Orlando Sentinel: “Redick spent a precious Orlando Magic off-night at the Bieber concert, but there were mitigating circumstances. Redick’s wife, Chelsea, wanted to go. ‘A happy wife is a happy life,’ J.J. said. ‘I have a general rule that if I have an off-day during the season that I owe it to her to do what she wants unless it’s harmful to my well-being. Her and her friends wanted to go.’ Redick has known Scott ‘Scooter’ Braun, who is Bieber’s manager, for about eight years, and Braun provided Redick’s group with some nice seats. Redick said he’s not a Bieber fan. In fact, Redick prefers indie rock. But Redick was asked today what he’d choose if he had to listen to either Bieber’s music or the music of Cody Simpson, who attended the Magic’s game Thursday night and served as Bieber’s opening act. ‘I don’t know who Cody Simpson is,’ Redick said. ‘We got there as he was kind of finishing up his last song. I just know he had a great head of hair and was wearing a wifebeater, and the teenage girls seemed to really love him.'”
