It's not uncommon for pop stars to pivot and use their fame to make money in other ways. Clothing lines seem to be a popular choice. So it's not surprising that Justin Bieber has started his own, under the name The House of Drew. What is surprising is his most popular item is hotel slippers.

Bieber has been seen wearing apparel emblazoned with his clothing line's logo, a smiley face with the word "Drew", his middle name, in place of the mouth. However, it was earlier this week when he and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, posted photos to their Instagram accounts showing off the footwear.

Bieber's post included a link to his store.

Hailey offered her support for her husband's new line.

The fabulous footwear was then available on his site for only $4.99. Due to the singer's popularity and the low price, the slippers sold out almost immediately.

It was impressive to say the least.

The House of Drew website only shows the sold out slippers and no other articles of clothing. It's unknown if and when more might be coming. Bieber has been seen wearing other clothes, such as a black hoodie with his line's logo. And it's easy to see how this image easily transfers to all kinds of comfort wear.

Well it better come soon. Maybe just restock the slippers.

I mean, it's either that or find other ways to make your fans happy. Maybe put out some new music?

Bieber and Hailey got engaged earlier this year and married soon after. While there was no official confirmation at the time, Thanksgiving saw Bieber announce his first time celebrating the holiday as a husband. The pair had dated in 2016 before splitting but got back together earlier this year.

Hailey changed her last name on social media to "Bieber" and also trademarked "Hailey Bieber" for her own commercial purposes. Combined with House of Drew, maybe we'll see a his/her line of inexpensive comfort clothes?

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
