Recent removals

Shane Cyrus removed some pieces, and Cornerstonepicker and I took issue with some of the removals. Although I reverted all of Shane Cyrus's removals (and the intermediate edits by others), my main issues with Shane Cyrus's changes are the following: I don't like the "Life and career" setup when a Personal life section exists; this is because "personal life" is also the subject's life. The "Bieber's early fanbase developed on YouTube and predated the release of his first album" and "Belieber" material is not, as Shane Cyrus asserted, WP:INDISCRIMINATE. Bieber is famous largely because of YouTube, and his fanbase is notable enough that it is specifically talked about in WP:Reliable sources. And that includes his fanbase being called "Beliebers." These are things that should be mentioned in the article. Bieber's involvement with Selena Gomez is not trivial. She is a long-term romantic partner and should be mentioned in his Personal life section. So should something about Bieber's current relationship with his father; it doesn't need to be the exact quote I restored, but I don't think a person's relationship with their parent is really a trivial matter.

With this edit, I re-removed some of what Shane Cyrus removed. With this edit, I tweaked the YouTube/Belieber content. And with this edit, I tweaked the dating content. Apparently, they didn't confirm their relationship until 2011, so maybe "2010" should be changed to "2011." Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 02:07, 3 March 2017‎ (UTC)
