In addition to sharing the throwback photo of the 44-year-old "Lose Yourself" rapper, Bieber changed up his style earlier this year in a look that seemed to emulate Eminem. Back in March, the Biebs stepped out with a peroxide blond buzzcut and clear glasses that was reminiscent of the "Real Slim Shady" hitmaker. Also like Eminem, Bieber has adorned his body with tattoos.
In concert, Justin has shown an affinity for Eminem's tunes. He covered "Lose Yourself" and "Cleaning Out My Closet" at a London nightclub back in 2015. Two years prior, Justin rapped to Eminem at the lyricist's hometown of Detroit.
When Justin was going through a rough patch in his life when he had several run-ins with the law, Eminem actually invited Bieber to stay at his house over the holidays.
"He's really hoping he can sort Justin out. The way he's going he's worried he's going to end up in bad trouble," a source told The Sun at the time. "He wants to talk him into going to therapy and counseling to deal with the stress of fame in a positive way."
Currently, Justin Bieber is staying busy with his Purpose world tour. His next scheduled performance is in Cardiff, Wales. The European leg of the tour comes to a close on Sunday and will be followed by a number of North American concerts and will end this coming fall in Asia.
As for Eminem, he has caused a stir on social media revealing a brand new look. Check out the photo here.
