Stewie Griffin, status symbol.

Justin Bieber wears a $25k "Family Guy" necklace

Every frat boy's dream come true, the pop star bejewels Stewie like a big boy

Remember when everyone got upset because Justin Bieber went to Rolling Stone and said he supported universal healthcare but was pro-life? It was like we were treating the 17-year-old like an adult with opinions that deserve debating! So silly!

Because just for reference, Justin Bieber wears a necklace of Stewie Griffin from "Family Guy" around town, and that necklace costs $25,000. I would not take his opinion on the best part of Epcot Center seriously, let alone his views on abortion.

To be fair, a lot of rappers wear ridiculous bling. Flava Flav has that clock necklace,  and Lil Wayne has a giant piece of gold that spells out "Crunk Ain't Dead" in what has to be the heaviest piece of sloganeering ever.  Then again, I wouldn't really let these people influence my opinions on today's "hot topics" either.

And at least they aren't literally wearing a giant, talking baby around, the symbolism of which is not lost on anyone.
