    A Mom Gives Her Honest Review of Justin Bieber’s New Emoji App

    Let Debbie decide if it's worth $2.99!

    In case you aren't a Belieber, Justin Bieber just released an emoji app! Mainly of different squinty-eyed faces he has made over the years.

    BUT THE EMOJIS AREN'T FREE — they'll cost you $2.99 in the app store!

    To see if the emoji app is right for you BEFORE you drop all those coins, I thought I'd download it and get an honest review of the emojis from the one and only celebrity expert in Texas — my 50-years-young mother!**

    First off, this review is completely UNBIASED. My mom Debbie, of course, knows who Justin Bieber is...... thanks to Ellen:

    ...BUT SHE WOULDN'T CONSIDER HERSELF A "BELIEBER!"

    Debbie was not aware she was about to be reviewing Justin Bieber's emojis — I just randomly shot her a text with one of the customizable emojis the app has to offer:

    I decided to ask her opinions about a couple emojis at first to warm up the convo. Debbie liked one of the emoji's "lipstick" choice:

    ...BUT she was NOT A FAN of this shirtless emoji:

    I thought it would be best to find out when she'd actually send some of these emojis, so I started to ask her the situations when she'd text someone an emoji:

    She found very functional uses for most:

    Like when she makes an "oops":

    Or when she needs to congratulate someone on a good haircut:

    Or when you laugh at a good Facebook post:

    Or when that time of the day rolls around again when you have to ask someone if they're stalking you:

    And she even managed to find an emoji that she'd lead conversations with:

    But SHE WAS NOT a fan of the suggestive emojis:

    THEY'RE TOO EVIL!

    While Debbie understands why a Belieber would send the brief emoji, SHE WOULD NEVER!

    And don't go sending Debbie the shirtless selfie emoji — SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND YOUR BULLSHIT!

    Despite being an occasional gif sender, she wouldn't be sending the gifs the app has to offer:

    But Debs also admitted to being not much of a "gif girl":

    I decided to wrap things up because I knew Ellen would be on soon, so I asked if she'd purchase Justin's emoji app for $2.99. She didn't hold back:

    Although Debbie wouldn't spend 299 pennies on it, she understands who the app is meant for — the Beliebers.

    So go forth Beliebers, and enjoy sending Bieber emojis for the rest of your existence.
