Look, I don’t entirely understand how Fashion Week works. But if it can get one of the world’s reigning pop stars into a room with half of the great alt-rock musicians of the early ’90s, it can’t be all bad, right? Somehow, last night’s Saint Laurent show involved Justin Bieber meeting and exchanging pleasantries with people like Courtney Love, Krist Novoselic, Beck, and Kim Gordon, as well as foundation influence Joan Jett. And there is Instagram evidence! So if Bieber gets Butch Vig to produce his next album, we will know that last night had something to do with it.

Look how close Love is to Gordon. Awkward.
Last fall Bieber was criticized for wearing a custom $1500 Nirvana t-shirt to the AMAs, but he got Love’s seal of approval.
What was Krist Novoselic doing at a fashion show, anyway? Since when has that guy put 45 seconds of thought into what he’s wearing on any given day?
