Justin Bieber was arrested for driving under the influence, drag racing, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license early Thursday morning (January 23) in Miami, FL.
According to the police report, the Biebs was pulled over in his rented yellow Lamborghini after officers noticed two cars racing. Bieber’s pal, Khail, who was driving a red Lamborghini was also arrested for racing.
The Miami Beach police confirmed that Bieber failed a sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a Breathalyzer.
The police report also notes that Bieber was uncooperative with the police and when they told him they would have to conduct a “cursory pat down, Bieber allegedly said, “I ain’t got no f*cking weapons. Why do you have to search me? What the fuck is this about?”
It looks like Taylor Swift wasn’t feeling the love for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as the on-again-off-again couple shared a small kiss backstage at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 19) held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
During a backstage camera feed, the 23-year-old country superstar who dominated the award show earlier earning eight trophies stuck out her tongue in disapproval as she glanced at the couple.
During the show Swift and Gomez sat together and even gave Bieber a standing ovation after he received the Milestone Award.
Justin Bieber is not taking his “bad reputation” lightly!
The 19-year-old singer who has been getting scrutinized recently by the media has taken to his Instagram on Thursday (March 14) to clear some things up.
“Everyone in my team has been telling me ‘keep the press happy,’ but I’m tired of all the countless lies in the press right now,” the pop superstar wrote. “Saying I’m going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud, and nothing’s been said by them. My grandparents wouldn’t know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab c’mon. If anyone believes I need rehab that’s their own stupidity LOL.”
“I’m 19 with 5 number one albums. 19 and I’ve seen the whole world. 19 and I’ve accomplished more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. I’m 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning,” he continued. “I know my talent level and I know I got my head on straight. I know who I am and I know who I’m not. My message is to to believe. My albums could be about anything, but my messages have been to never say never and believe. Not to believe in me, but to believe in yourself. I honestly don’t care if you don’t believe in me because I believe in me, and look where that’s gotten me so far.”
“I’m writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart,” he continued. “Letting you know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I’m a good person with a big heart. And don’t think I deserve all of this negative press. I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here.”
“All this isn’t easy,” he explained. “I get angry sometimes. I’m human. I’m gonna make mistakes. I’m gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love you. Thanks.”
Jada Pinkett Smith is asking the hard questions and is defending Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Rihanna andOscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis against media bullying and scrutiny.
The 41-year-old actress took to her Facebook page over the weekend to call out the media for bullying young artists, “Are we bullying our young artists?,” Smith starts off. “How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them?”
“This last week, I had to really evaluate the communication in regard to our young artists in the media. I was trying to differentiate cyber-bullying from how we attack and ridicule our young stars through media and social networks. It is as if we have forgotten what it means to be young or even how to behave like good ol’ grown folk. Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous?” she continues to write.
“Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19 year old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well? Does that render being called a cunt by an adult male photographer as you try to return to your hotel after leaving the the hospital? Or what about our nine year old beautiful Oscar nominee who was referred to as a cunt as well? Or what about being a young woman in her early twenties, exploring the intracacies of love and power on the world stage? And should we shame a young woman for displaying a sense of innocence as she navigates through the murky waters of love, heartbreak, and fame?”
Are these young people not allowed to be young, make mistakes, grow, and eventually transform a million times before our eyes? Are we asking them to defy the laws of nature because of who they are? Why can’t we congratulate them for the capacity to work through their challenges on a world stage and still deliver products that keep them on top. We all know how hard it is to keep our head above water, even in the privacy of our own homes let alone on the world stage.”
“Imagine yourself, at their age, with the spotlights, challenges and responsibilities. Most of us would have fallen to the waste side before we could even get to a crashed Ferrari, a controversial romance, several heart breaks, or an Oscar nomination at NINE. We WISH we could have had the capacity to accomplish HALF of what they have accomplished along with ALL these challenges they face. But…maybe THAT’S the problem…we WISH we could have or even…we WISH we could.”
So what do YOU think, are we bullying young celebrities?
