Justin Bieber has one; I kid you not! Meet Ryan Good, a Florida native who was hired by R&B singer/producer Usher to tag along with teen sensation Justin Bieber and help him develop his—you guessed it—swagger.
–verb (used without object)
1. to walk or strut with a defiant or insolent air.
2. to boast or brag noisily.
–verb (used with object)
3. to bring, drive, force, etc., by blustering.
4. swaggering manner, conduct, or walk; ostentatious display of arrogance and conceit.
According to MTV, Justin was quoted saying, “I have a swagger coach that helps me and teaches me different swaggerific things to do.” I’ll bet Ryan’s job description isn’t limited to picking Justin’s clothes and matching his sneakers. This dude may be responsible for Justin’s killer tween smile, signature hair swoosh, and pickup lines.
E! Online claims that they haven’t heard of any other young stars employing a swagger coach, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this starts a new trend in the industry.
