Well, crap. Just a few days ago, I covered the above “Heartbreaker” photo of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez from his Instagram account and hoped against all hope that the picture was an old one that Bieber had just posted to make us think that Selena had taken him back yet again. Sadly, it turns out that Selena has gone there for real, and Hollywood Life says that creepy Scooter Braun (Bieb’s manager) talked her into it. TMZ adds to the story with details that Selena told Bieber he needed to straighten up, and on July 4, Bieber “won her back by promising to change his douche ways.” Don’t worry, it won’t last.
Indeed, Bieber just got busted on Tuesday evening for underage drinking in a Chicago club. He got kicked out of the joint, and the club was fined $1000. Now for a followup to that gross story about how Bieber peed in a restaurant cleaning bucket while (oddly) exclaiming, “F— Bill Clinton.” Apparently, Bill thought it was funny, and he and Bieber have made nice:
Justin Bieber could teach a master class in damage control.
After getting caught on video urinating in a mop bucket and spraying cleaning fluid onto a picture of Bill Clinton while saying “F— Bill Clinton,” the 19-year-old actually spoke to the former U.S. president today and apologized for his actions, a source close to the situation confirms to E! News.
And it sounds as if Clinton was really cool about it!
The insider tells us that the erstwhile commander in chief took Bieber’s slam in jest, saying something along the lines of, “If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well.”
And that had to have felt good to hear, considering the rough time Bieber has been having staying out of headline-making situations lately.
“@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr. President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy,” he tweeted earlier today after their talk.
We’re also told that Bieber told the statesman and activist that if there was anything he could do for the Clinton Global Initiative, he would love to help.
Clinton, in turn, told the pop singer to focus on the good that he can do for the world–and to keep an eye on his friends (one of whom purportedly leaked the video in question).
They say you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, and at least the Biebs was left with an omelet today.

Man, I can’t believe Bill Clinton actually responded to Bieber’s pee-in-a-bucket diss. He should have just ignored Bieber’s arrogant ass, but I would have been pretty pleased if Bill would have made a video much like the one where Obama called Kanye West a jackass.
Since this is a catch-all Bieber post, there’s also a new article up at People that rounds up some recent quotes from Bieb-mom Pattie Mallette. She tries to emphasize that Bieber is a good kid because he sometimes meets with sick kids in hospitals, and she ambiguously states, “He knows what I disagree with and he knows all the things that I’m really proud of him for, too.” Further, she likens Bieber’s world tour to him going off to college and learning life lessons in the process. Discuss.
