“You look so old,” I say to Justin Bieber.
He has lines around his eyes, his skin is sallow, and his hand is shaking as he reaches for his phone that is facedown on the table between us.
A lot of this might be explained by us being at my children’s daycare center, where Justin is about to give an exclusive performance before the holidays. I have two toddlers and baby quadruplets there. Justin is only doing this while he waits for a deal with a Chinese smartphone company to go through.
“You look even older,” he says to me.
