Justin Bieber’s new CD, Believe, dropped Tuesday and critical consensus is that it doesn’t stink. The word is still out on “Girlfriend,” Bieber’s second perfume, which also was launched this week and may or may not contain the singer’s sweat. (It doesn’t: Bieber was joking about this “secret ingredient” in an MTV appearance.)
Let’s all hope this fragrance is subtle, because apparently the average application is somewhere between one bottle and a bathtub’s worth:
"The Girlfriend Perfume is made of Bieber Sweat" okay i'm going to pour the whole bottle on me. BIEBER ON MY BODY BABY 😉

The Girlfriend Perfume is made of Bieber Sweat" Okay, but that won't stop me from buying it and take a bath in it. Maybe I'll even eat it

Of course, the musical sophisticates among us with more mature tastes know that if you are going to commingle bodily fluids and music and be taken seriously, you’ve got to use blood. Critically acclaimed band The Flaming Lips recently released an LP containing actual blood samples of the band and its collaborators.
Blood Sweat & Tears could not be reached for comment.
