Whether you’re aware of it or not, we are in the midst of an epic war.
It's a battle featuring two of this planet’s most mighty forces mustering all the power they have to assert dominance over their rival.
In one corner, we have an entity with loyal followers and a renegade attitude toward how it is perceived by the world.
In the other, we have a formerly unstoppable titan at the end of one of this world’s most dominant global takeovers.
I’m talking, of course, about One Direction and Justin Bieber.
Both Biebs and 1D released their albums on Friday after leaking them earlier this month, and though Bieber’s album is technically selling better, to say the Internet is torn right down the middle between the two records is an understatement.
This is flat out war.
In the one corner, you have loyal Bieberests who Beliebe Purpose should be added to the New Testament as it is surely word of God handed down to man and autotuned through this Canadian singer.
Then, there are fans who INSIST Billboard’s charts should only point to One Direction and, that’s right, Made in The A.M.
Then, there are those who just want everyone to get along.
Years from now, we will look back at this time and not know it not by the date but rather by “The Bieber/One Direction War of 2015.”
Whose side are you on?
