How did Justin Bieber transform from a nonthreatening Canadian faun-boy into the sort of recording artist who's got the legitimacy to cover a Drake jam (admittedly, with the cuss words snipped neatly out)? Credit Ryan Good, a former assistant to Usher who was hired a while back by Bieber's manager Scooter Braun to act as a "swagger coach" to the teen dream. "[He] helps me and teaches me different swaggerific things to do," Bieber explained last year. "He has helped me with my style and just putting different pieces together and being able to layer and stuff like that." (Perhaps we can credit Good with Bieber's swagtastic Stewie necklaces and nascent, perhaps unintentional AIDS activism?) Alas, a boy and his swagger coach are soon parted, and now Good has moved on. "[R]yan is going to pursue some of his dreams...we encourage him 2 go after his," Braun tweeted. "[H]e will always b a part of this family. always." Though it's surely a crushing blow to the Biebz, we hope he'll take the news in the manner that Good has taught him: with an "Oh, for real bro?" and a handshake turned hug containing no more than two back slaps.
