Justin Bieber was the Chambelan de Honor for this Quinceañera

One lucky Justin Bieber fan just had the quinceañera of her dreams. Ashley, a young Latina from Los Angeles, was diagnosed with meningitis last year forcing her to give up the quinceañera she had been planning for years. Bieber, with the help of the TV show Knock Knock Live, surprised Ashley with the quince she thought she’d never have.

First, Justin Bieber surprised Ashley at her home. *Knock, knock*

Ashley couldn’t BELIEB it.

If the pop star thing doesn’t work out, he just might have a future in quinceañera planning. Hey Justin, pro tip: next time, wear a white tux if you’re gonna be the chambelan de honor.

After leading Ashley to her throne and giving her a crown…

Quinceañera’s Are Getting A Makeover In The Time Of Coronavirus And One Teen Is Celebrating The Change

Quinceañera’s Are Getting A Makeover In The Time Of Coronavirus And One Teen Is Celebrating The Change

Jimmy Rodriguez

Coronavirus has put the breaks on pretty much everyone’s plans.

I mean, Coachella was postponed. Even the 2020 Olympics, which were supposed to take place in Tokyo this summer, have been postponed. Major family plans like quinceañeras have largely been put on hold as well – for obvious reasons. A quinceañera is usually a large family affair. They’re usually packed with family and friends, sometimes even the whole neighborhood, a church service, and a photoshoot.

So it makes sense for families to have postponed these very special events, since social distancing is proving to be the only truly effective method at combating the spread of the virus. However, one family got creative and celebrated their daughter’s big day.

This San Antonio teen was able to celebrate her big day with friends and family in a safe and fun way.

Like so many teens, Xóchitl had spent months planning her quince with her mom, Kristie. It’s one of the biggest days in many Latina’s young lives.

“Every little Hispanic girl dreams about her quinceañera and her wedding. Those are your two big days in your life,” Rodriguez, 45, from San Antonio, told NBC News.

“Usually, there is a Mass where the priest blesses you as you get ready for your transition, from being a young girl to becoming a woman, which of course we couldn’t do,” Rodriguez said, emotionally, over the phone.

Xóchitl and her mom had already spent hours shopping for the perfect gown and hours more planning her quinceañera before stay-at-home orders hit her hometown of San Antonio. In fact, her family had already organized both a mass and a fun-filled reception.

Then the Coronavirus hit and the family had to get creative.

San Antonio, like the rest of the country, had to implement strict stay-at-home orders in order to combat the pandemic. This left the Rodriguez family struggling to figure out how to celebrate their daughter’s big day and continuing with the tradition – despite a global health crisis.

It took some creativity and work, but Rodriguez and her husband, Jimmy, surprised Xóchitl on April 21 with a low-key but unforgettable version of her big day: a drive-by quinceañera. Xochitl was able to share it with her closest family and friends – at a safe distance.

Still, there are aspects of the tradition that families miss.

“It was very different, because our culture is very much about physical affection — you know, the hugging, the kissing, the touching — and it was really hard to see them and not be able to touch them,” Rodriguez said, speaking of the relatives and friends who came to cheer Xóchitl on.

They managed to keep the idea from Xochitl until the big moment came.

“We had blown up the balloons the night before and had kept them in the garage and then kind of made the mad dash to decorate the yard when it was time for her to go outside,” Kristie said.

Then, the family went outside and greeted her socially-distanced guests in her dress and her tiara. Instead of damas and chambelanes, the family pulled out some of Rodriguez’s old dolls and teddy bears and used them for a makeshift honor court – while friends and family sang “Las Mañanitas” from their cars and from the sidewalk.

She says she was completely thrilled to see all of the people she loved making an effort, despite difficulties, to make her feel special.

“I kind of lost hope of having anyone over or having a normal birthday where I can see my family,” she told NBC Latino. “I feel like my mom and my dad really made it special, trying to get the people that were closest to me.”

Canadian Coffee Chain Tim Horton’s Updated Their Lids And Justin Bieber Is Not Having It, “It’s A D*** Outrage And Needs To Be Changed Back”

Have you ever wondered, ’How does Justin Bieber take his coffee?’ Well, the answer is, seriously, very seriously. The pop super-star took to Instagram just a few days ago, to slam the Canadian coffee chain, Tim Horton’s, because they had the audacity to change their coffee cup lids! Needless to say, The Biebs was not happy about the change. here’s what went down.

Justin Bieber is not impressed with Tim Hortons coffee cup lids.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2_h6cagTff/ The Canadian fast food chain, Tim Hortons, has received criticism over their leaky lids in the past, so they completely revamped them this year —but Bieber was not having it. The Canadian singer posted a poll on Instagram asking his followers: “Who’s Canadian and misses these lids at Tim Hortons like I do?”

After posting a poll about the lids on his Instagram story, Bieber posted the results.

Bieber posted the poll results on his Instagram page, showing 70 per cent of the people who voted miss the lids and 30 per cent did not. “@timhortons I know they could leak but it was easier to drink out of.. the coffee would come out better.. these new lids are uncomfortable on the mouth, and you get very little liquid each drink,” Bieber captioned the poll results.

Bieber was also upset that the lids were made out of plastic.

“It’s a damn outrage and needs to be changed back. Tbh [to be honest] it shouldn’t be plastic find a way to be recyclable let’s change the world 1 lid at a time,” Bieber added.

Bieber posted a response from Tim Hortons on Instagram.

The ‘Love Yourself’ singer then took to Instagram to post the response he received from the coffee house ‘“We’re making a a change one lid at a time. Thanks @timhortons,” the singer captioned it . The Canadian chain wrote: “Hey @justinbieber thanks for your feedback. Sorry you aren’t loving our new lids, but the good news is that they’re made with 100 per cent recyclable plastic. We’d love to have you join our team that’s working to make them even better! DM us.”

Bieber posted a photo of the old lids on Instagram, writing: “This is where it’s at @timhortons.”

The saga didn’t stop there. On Sunday, Bieber posted another photo of his Tim Hortons coffee with the old lid design. He captioned the post, “This is where it’s at @timhortons.”

But wait! There’s more..

While at a sporting event with his wife, Hailey Bieber, the chain gifted him with an entire bag of the old beverage covers, and of course he had to update us all on the status of the coffee lid debacle. “We lost but I got a bunch of lids so there’s a win out of the night somewhere :(“ he boasted on his Instagram Stories as he showed off his unusual gift.

And there’s even more tea (or should we say coffee?)

Justin responded to a random girl’s comment on the original lid outrage post, and we just thought it was pretty funny. So here you have it, because sharing is caring, here’s the shade thrown by Bieber to a random fan: “What would you do if I was in a hotel room alone?” read the fan’s comment. “Leave you there,” was Bieber’s shady response. 

The Canadian chain redesigned the lies to avoid spillage.

Starting in the summer of 2018, Tim Hortons gradually replaced Justin’s preferred lids in restaurants across Canada. The new lids, which he obviously dislikes, are taller, with a raised dome and tabbed closure, and are embossed with a maple leaf. According to Huffington Post Canada, they’re made of polypropylene — a recyclable plastic.

It’s not the first time the Biebs has taken to social media to complain about a product.

While Justin eventually did get dozens of his beloved old lids at the hockey game on Saturday, the singer has a previous history of making requests for brands to improve their stuff on social media. In May, he tweeted about the “need” for Popsicle’s Double Stick Popsicles to find their way back on to supermarket shelves. Though the brand teased a possible return for the large frozen treat in July, it has yet to make a permanent comeback, he did get his own custom made batch of popsicles.
