Now that Justin Bieber has a new haircut and looks 100% better according to just about everyone we asked, he has decided to name himself "Pretty Boy" after the infamous gangster Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd.
"I'm looking pretty good these days," said Bieber in a news conference where he was asked what was in store for 2011. "I think the haircut has a lot to do with me getting one of the hottest girls around to even notice me," he said referring, of course to female teen heart throb, Selena Gomez. [Rumors have it that Selena made it known to Bieber that if he got rid of the ridiculous haircut and started looking more like a "gangsta," she might just consider a bit of canoodling with him, whereupon that very day he was sitting with a stylist and discussing his new look.]
Bieber chose Pretty Boy Floyd for a couple of reasons. "First of all, the guy was born in Georgia and Georgia is where I got my big break. Second of all, the guy is a gangster and white, so it makes sense to me since my roots are in urban music and lots of urban artists are gangsters or gangstas as we like to call ourselves, except they are black. By the way, have I mentioned lately that I'm nuts?"
Bieber claims that he came this close to choosing Baby Face Nelson instead of Pretty Boy Floyd for his gangsta name but said "can you imagine me getting a chance with a hot dame like Selena with the name 'Baby Face?'
