Justin Bieber grins proudly for mug shot, says his mom gave him drugs

Justin Bieber

Isn’t this the most adorable mugshot you’ve ever seen? Yesterday, Kaiser covered the big story about the little baby known as Justin Bieber. To briefly recap: Biebs was finally cuffed for the first time, which will surely not be his last run-in with the law. He was arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami Beach. The bratty one resisted arrest. He also cussed at the cops and didn’t know why he was pulled over because he thinks he’s king of the world.

(Quick question: Do you think Bieber pulled this stunt on purpose to look like a badass? Now that he has a DUI, he’s even swaggier than usual. Street cred, yo.)

Bieber was in custody for most of Thursday morning and afternoon. He wore a fetching orange jumpsuit, and I hope they made him squat and cough. Let’s do bulletpoints to catch up on all the new details. If more stuff happens, I’ll update this post:

* TMZ reports that Bieber showed off his tattoos and (baby) guns during his court appearance. Bail was set at $2500, and he smugly waved to the crowd as he left the courthouse.

* Bieber was grinning like an absolute fool in his mugshot, but his demeanor while in custody is up for debate. Radar Online says Bieber “appeared to still be under the influence” and was “giggling like a teenage girl.” What an insult to teenage girls everywhere. People says Bieber was “stolid” in court and then “crying his eyes out” after bail was set.

* Bieber’s lady friend, Chantel Jeffries (who was in the car when Bieber was arrested), has been revealed to have quite the arrest record herself. She’s been arrested five times, including once for speeding and once for misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. During the last incident, she stabbed another woman in the arm during a fight. Nice manners, babe.

* Pattie Mallette is very worried about her toddler son. The Mail says Justin has been ignoring his mommy for weeks. Bieber’s daddy, Jeremy, is part of his posse, but Patti wants to set herself apart as “genuinely very concerned about her son.

* Bieber has turned on his mommy. According to TMZ, when cops asked Bieber what substances he took before his arrest, baby Biebs admitted to alcohol and weed. He also said he was on prescription drugs, but he didn’t know what kind “because he just takes whatever his mom Pattie gives him.

* After his arrest, Bieber was spotted popping bottles with his daddy. Good god.

* All of this is everyone else’s fault except Bieber’s of course. A source close to Bieber (i.e., Scooter Braun) says Bieber’s friends are to blame: “Everyone around him is urging him to seek help. There is massive concern right now. The concern is, We have to figure this out. We have to fix this and do whatever it takes. They think the problem is the people he is hanging out with. He has some issues to work on. Lil Za, Milk and Lil Twist are particularly bad influences on him.” You know what might actually help Bieber in the long run? If Scooter stood up to Bieber and told him he was acting like an egotistical brat. That will never happen. Scooter likes to get paid.

Here’s Bieber outside the courthouse. He’s loving this sh-t.

    This little douche canoe needs to be exported back to Canada stat!

  2. harpreet says:

    Rob Ford, Bieber, Tori’s husband……Canada has also produced Gosling, Donald Sutherland and Christopher Plummer. Sigh, I tend to focus on the latter.

  3. Helvetica says:

    I am sure he’s been on the bad sh!t for awhile, using, abusing and everything. It would be very interesting to do a case study on him, a child pop star, what that must be like. Fame has got to be WEIRD. He should probably get to rehab but I doubt he will unless he fcks up again. Which I think he will.

    • Jarredsgirl says:

      Totally agree. I do think that fame f-cks with your head and that’s why celebs are all on drugs. I can’t see things ending well for justin at all…

      • JessMa says:

        Mara Wilson the actress the did a ton of movies in the 90′s wrote an excellent article on cracked.com about being a child actor. She does a great job of explaining how it really can mess kids up.

  4. Pri says:

    His dad’s a part of his posse, doing all the drinks,drugs and gals and he has turned on his mom saying she supplies him with drugs…I see something here….sad. Though I wonder if she still is going to keep lying and supporting him….She obviously knew of everything that is going on.

    • Kim1 says:

      I believe him he probably complained about being depressed.She probably was using Xanax for her issues and said take these one a day.Ive seen it happen in my family.

    • OhDear says:

      The situation seems Lohan-esque. Not saying he or L. Lohan shouldn’t take responsibility for his actions, but it’s sad.

  5. Anna says:

    Canada doesn’t want him either. Ya’ll messed him up so you can have him. It’s your punishment

    • itstrue says:

      Uh, his parents took care of the messing up, and I believe they are from your neck of the woods (of course I’m kidding–his condition is not based on location, it’s just a question of where we send him now–an island or something??)

    • jaye says:

      Let’s send him to Great Britain. I think their snot-nosed asshat percentage may be low enough that they could absorb sh*t for brains and be no worse for wear.

  6. ToodySezHey says:

    ….can we deport this herpderp already???

    • jaye says:

      “Herpderp”…LOL! That’s going to be my go to insult from now until the end of creation.

      • Beliber says:

        You are mean little asses! That’s a fact help justin out for a once I mean common!!!!!! I am pretty sure if you were that famous you wouldn’t like the comments very much HUGH! Give the boy a break PLEASE! If you were as famous as he is you would do bad ass things too

  7. Neffie says:

    Oh my Gosh look at him on that SUV does he think he is Michael Jackson?

    • Ellie66 says:

      I thought the same thing! :) Michael did the same thing jump up on the roof of a limo and waved smilies all around, he was in court for child-molesting at the time. What a world!! Lol!

  8. BRE says:

    When I saw him in the courtroom video I swear he looked like a young Corey Haim

  9. akua says:

    Douche-bag Under the Influence (DUI)…

  10. blue marie says:

    Nah, I bet those pills are from his dad. His dad who would rather be a pal and leech off his son than be a parent and give his kid a swift kick in the a-s. I think this is what happens when you try to be your kids best friend instead of parent, it almost always bites the parent in the butt.

    And no I don’t believe he did this for street cred because from past experience I’m sure he tried to blame it on someone else. the d-bag’s smiling in the mugshot because he’s high as a kite, you can tell by the glassy eyes.

    • FLORC says:

      I thought his eyes were glassy because he was crying. The tears are still there and his pupils aren’t terrible. Often the room is already well lit for the mug shot so I doubt they used a huge flash.
      It’s pure schaudenfreude, but I don’t care. I’m looking forward to the day where all his friends leave him and his money dries up. He seems to only lower the quality of life of those around him.

      • blue marie says:

        You are so right about lowering the quality of life, his friends end up with nothing but rap sheets.

      • Jarredsgirl says:

        That’s a terrible thing to wish on someone. I know he is a brat and egotistical but put it in perspective.. he hasn’t stabbed anyone. And how can u say that he lower the quality of life for everyone around him? He was at the top, now he is spiralling. Those friends of his were never at the top. More likely they are bringing him down. He seemed so sweet when he first hit the scene.

  11. kgg says:

    Oh my goodness, he’s Hilary Swank from Boys Don’t Cry.

  12. Kiddo says:

    “Quick question: Do you think Bieber pulled this stunt on purpose to look like a badass? Now that he has a DUI, he’s even swaggier than usual. Street cred, yo.”

    How much street cred can you have when your suburban Daddy helps you set up barriers on a street? Did he also put training wheels on the cars? I read somewhere that Biebs balled his eyes out in the cell. Yeah. He’s one tough Mofo. And his parents seem to be morons. How else to explain it?

  13. tifzlan says:

    Can we talk about how insulting it is that his Beliebers have been trending #FreeBieber on twitter and defending his actions, i.e driving DRUNK?

    • eliza says:

      There is NO defense for driving drunk when you are an average Joe but even less when you are a mega rich celebrity who can afford to be driven around.

      His fans are children who have zero knowledge of life and how easily people can be killed because of foolish decisions.

      • Sophie says:

        I totally agree.
        I wish they would put people like him in a room full of people who have lost someone to DUI for an hour. I think he’d lose that smug smile soon enough.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      Sorry but someone who likes Bieber and defends him (this doesn’t include who only likes his music, although… I might have something to add in that regard too!), can he/she be considered sane? Bieber’s supporters appear to be no less stupid than him, honestly!

    • Mika says:

      A belieber on Tumblr placed these gems on JB’s smiling mugshot pic : “I’m smiling because I don’t want my Beliebers to be sad and depressed, I love them all too much to hurt them”
      I don’t know whether to cry or to laugh.

      • eliza says:

        Cry. This is the sad state of our youth today.

      • jaye says:

        Cheezus! I honestly can’t remember being that dopey over a celebrity when I was young. I probably was…I just don’t remember it.

      • msw says:

        I know this area is not the forte of young people, but he doesn’t give a crap about his fans. He only cares about how they make them feel about himself. I’ve never seen him do anything nice for a fan, besides giving away his pet hamster, which is nucer than flushing it down the toilet, I guess.

      • Tippy says:

        I’ve seen him do some really nice things for his fans in the past so he can’t be all bad.

        Best Valentine ever? Six-year-old girl with cancer gets date with Justin Bieber

        Scott Stump TODAY contributor

        Feb. 14, 2012 at 9:01 AM ET

        Battling a rare form of cancer, Avalanna Routh scored the most coveted Valentine’s Day date in the world this year.

        Affectionately known as “Mrs. Bieber’’ by her famous “husband,’’ the 6-year-old Boston girl got to spend the day in New York with Justin Bieber on Monday after an online campaign and a report by NBC Boston affiliate WHDH caught the eye of the pop star. He flew Routh and her family to Manhattan for a special date. During their meeting, the two played board games, signed autographs for each other, and Routh even was able to lay her hands on the famous Bieber hairdo and style it her own way. “That was one of the best things I have ever done,’’ Bieber later tweeted. “She was AWESOME. Feeling really inspired right now.’’

        Another tweet read, “Best part of my day.’’

    • Dani says:

      They also think that DUI means Drinking Under the Influence so you can’t expect much else from a bunch of prepubescent kids.

    • Izzy says:

      Not to make it worse, but I live in Miami, and there were dozens (if not hundreds) of tweeny, idiot girls WITH THEIR PARENTS – girls who should have been in school! – waiting outside the jail and screaming “we love you” to this Lord of the Douchflies as he walked out.

      Seriously, they SKIPPED SCHOOL with their parents’ permission (and accompaniment) to rally for him.

      My first thought when I saw this on the news: I am NEVER having kids.

  14. Murphy says:

    I thought he banished his mom for suggesting he go to rehab a long time ago…

  15. eliza says:

    Is he wearing a garbage bag as pants or are those *gag* leather culottes (sp?)?

    Here is the thing. His mother and father are enablers and trash. They dare not deny the kid anything because if they dared to actually parent, they might have their gravy train cut off. Just because someone is no longer a child does not mean a parent cannot be a PARENT. Example, Jaime Spears, who stepped in and saved his daughter’s life and got the trash away from her.

    Unless someone reigns this little wanna-be thug brat in, this is just going to be the first in a looooong series of incidents until he kills himself or someone else with his wreckless behavior.

  16. Mia4S says:

    Wow, ummm depending on the circumstances his mother could go to jail if what he said was proven true (and maybe she should!). That’s cold Lil’ Maple Leaf, damn cold.

    Oh by the way: Dear United States, No returns, refunds or exchanges. Love, Canada

    • Shannon1972 says:

      Dear Canada,

      Your return policy would have to be clear before the transaction took place in order for it to be enforced. Sorry, but you have to take him back. But as a consolation, we will keep Keanu Reeves. It’s a sacrifice, but we do this for our friends.

      Love, The United States

    • swack says:

      But what if we have the receipt?

    • bluesmurfette says:

      To be fair to Canada, they did tell us not to feed him after midnight and not to get him wet. Some of this is on us.

  17. Kali says:

    He’s smiling to try and make himself look young and innocent again rather than the petulant brat he’s been acting like for the last few years. While I don’t doubt that getting high is not helping him, I think it’s more of a case of a 19 year old not having any real parents in his life and consequently turning into a bit of a douchebag rather than a tragic downward spiral from a raging drug addiction.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      I think this all started happening when he moved out on his own from his mothers view. It’s clear his dad is an enabler. It’s not cute. It’s dangerous.

      On a very greedy side note— i cannot wait for Kate McKinnon to kill it as the Biebs on SNL this weekend. I love her version of him on the SNL Piers Morgan skit. Hubby and I wear crying. http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/piers-morgan-cold-open/n45295/

    • No, Kali, I disagree says:

      I don’t think Bieber was smiling in his mug shot to make himself appear young and sweet to convince his fans he’s innocent. I think Bieber was smiling because he’s arrogant and belligerent, and Bieber thinks he’s a badass for being arrested.

  18. Duchess of Corolla says:

    “Pattie Mallette is very worried about her toddler son.”

    Bwahahahah! I love that description!

    He is such an idiot.

  19. silvia says:

    two words – failed parenting.. his parents seem to be content with his self-destructive behavior as long as he keeps stuffing their pockets with his money…even though he’s to blame for DUI etc.; they’re equally responsible for the mess he’s become. But now it’s too late for them to play parents , he’s too much of a big shot even for his home boy wannabee daddy and absent mother…truly sad.

  20. aquarius64 says:

    What a mess. Bieber throws his mom under the bus with the cops, although I am not feeling TOTALLY sorry for her. (She hitched herself on that gravy train.) Dad blocks off the streets to help his brat drag race (and hangs out with his money-making fruit of his loins at some party after the arrest. Black “friends” STILL used as scapegoats for the brat’s OWN choices. Scooter is putting out tweets to inoculate himself from any perceptions of responsibility in his client’s future bad behavior (trust me, more is coming), In the center of all is Bieber, oblivious to it all. Sadly it’s going to have to be a heinous crime resulting in death by his hand for this to sink in. Then he will see the consequences, loss of freedom, loss of fortune, loss of career.

  21. Sisi says:

    Misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon? How is that even a possible combination of words?

  22. Tippy says:

    The teen sensation greeted his adoring fans as if he were Rocky Balboa.

  23. TheCountess says:

    What a punchable, zit-covered little face he has.

  24. Lucy says:

    I keep reading tweets from his fans, all of which are basically “he’s a human who makes mistakes!!!” And you know what? They’re right. He’s a human, not God’s gift to humanity as he seems to belie(b)e. As every other human, he can fk up, and yesterday he did it, big time. And as every other human who’s name is NOT Justin Bieber, he shall be held responsible for his bull.

    • Beliber says:

      I agree with you together use beliebers can (and will) save justin come on we can do this we just gotta belive. Justin needs his beliebers more then ever right now so come on and let’s BELIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Samtha says:

    I think he’s full of crap in blaming his mom, honestly. She wasn’t even in Miami, was she? How would she have given him any pills?

    It’s another example of this kid trying to blame everyone else for his bad behavior.

  26. Tx says:

    The Lil’s are the least of his problems! As we learned yesterday, his father is sitting by and actively helping his son spiral. His problem is the same as Michael Jackson’s. He’s surrounded by Yes Men who will never tell him no or try and help for fear of losing access to Biebs $$ and power. So, so sad. When child stars support their loser parents, this is always the outcome because they have no boundaries.

  27. ali says:

    Not a fan. But. At least he wasnt totally drunk and had the sense to block roads.

    • Kim1 says:

      It wasn’t his idea it was his dad’s idea to block streets

    • Izzy says:

      THERE WERE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS LIVING ON THAT ROAD WHO COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED BY THEIR DRIVING. How in the hell is that good sense?

      THINK before you write. Good grief.

    • littlestar says:

      What gives him the right to block a public street though, as if it’s his own personal playground?

    • jaye says:

      Yes, let’s give this diaper baby a pass because he wasn’t totally drunk. He was just high on weed and whatever else he was on.

    • some bitch says:

      He blocked a RESIDENTIAL road to use as a drag racing strip. What if he or the other driver had lost control of their vehicle?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      1. A person does not need to be “drunk” to be under the “influence”. “Influence” can be alcohol, drugs, prescription meds. Considering he told police he was under the influence of THREE different substances, I think he most certainly was impaired and should not have been driving. The state doesn’t have to prove he was drunk, just impaired.

      2. He was in a RESIDENTIAL AREA. The reason doing 50-60 miles an hour was so bad, was that the speed limit was only 30 mph there. Why only a 30 mph speed limit? Because it was near homes, pedestrians, families and children. Cars blocking off the road does NOT block off pedestrians!

      3. He has been completely dangerous with cars sooooooooo many times before. He doesn’t seem to think that vehicular manslaughter can happen to him. He has swerved in and out of lanes going 100 mph on the 101. Has driven into on coming traffic on residential streets in Calabasas to pass people going absurd rates of speed around blind corners. He drag races in residetial neighborhoods, both in Florida and California.

      Cars can kill people. Period. Driving irresponsibily (both reckless speed and under the influence) are SERIOUS crimes.

      • Maureen says:

        4: And blocking off a PUBLIC road to use as one’s own playground in the first place. God. How entitled and narcissistic can a boy and his handlers be to have the utter gall to do that? Do you know how much EGO it takes to pull off something like blocking a public residential street for your own use and with no prior permission from the local authorities and the community?

  28. Jaana says:

    He did this for attention. The little boy is pushing barriers just to see how far he can go.

  29. Whitney says:

    What a tooly little turd-nugget he is.

  30. BeckyR says:

    Naturally he would blame someone else. Did you expect anything else?

  31. Hiddles forever says:

    Woah Macaulay Culkin 2.0….

  32. Little M says:

    So, the USA might not want him and Canada does not want him back.

    Please, bring him to Spain. We are in a horrible economic crisis right now and I know a therapist who would be perfect for this little brat.

    Bring him here, we can fix him and have fun during the process.

    Plus, drinking in Spain is legal for 19 year olds and we have lot of beautiful churches for Pattie.

  33. Megs283 says:

    On the radio this morning they were asking callers, “which celebrity do you hate as much as Beiber?” I thought it was hilarious and awesome that the question assumes that you dislike Justin Bieber…

    • Tippy says:

      The reason that he’s so despised is that he deceived everyone into believing in his wholesome image.

  34. original kay says:

    LOVE the 16 Candles reference!

  35. Migdalia says:

    I’m not a Beiber apologist in the slightest and think he deserves to have the book thrown at him. Call it what you want, but for a moment I could actually see how sad this kid probably is. Look at his eyes in that profile shot, and then a couple of moments atop that SUV and when he’s climbing back down to get inside. He’s just sad and I can only feel sorry for him.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I feel sorry for him when I remember he is a really, really young man who is incapacitated with drugs and surrounded by predators.

      I mean, he’s an utter jackhole–let’s be blunt about that–but he’s also not in his right mind, not hearing the truth from anyone, and not really mature enough to navigate what’s happening to him.

      I hope he survives long enough to regret all of this and to go on to have a healthy life.

    • Monksolo says:

      What I think is going on is that he provides a face and voice to literally hundreds of people who write his shows and make his music and he wants to stop it and get off, but they won’t let him. Nor will all the leeches he lives with. He’s probably under contract too.

  36. Nicolette says:

    It’s really sad when this is what young people have to look up to. Never taking responsibility for his actions, blatant disregard for the law, for other people’s property, for other people in general, and a self-entitled attitude. A mug shot should be something to be ashamed of, not something to smile and glorify himself with. I saw a pic of him on Dlisted after he was released, riding in a convertible and waving to the crowd like it was a parade. I must be getting old because I just don’t get the world and the way it works anymore. The worse the behavior of today’s young celebs, the more rewards they reap. It’s sending a very bad message. What will happen when he kills someone with his stupidity? Because that day is coming.

  37. jess says:

    Did anyone else read that letter to Justin from Hollywood life? Bonnie is telling Justin that he doesnt want to end up like Paul Walker. I couldnt believe they would post an article like that.

    • jaye says:

      What the ENTIRE f*ck?? Paul Walker wasn’t driving under the influence. He wasn’t even DRIVING! People are just so insensitive.

    • msw says:

      Bieber will be lucky if he is ever a quarter of the generous person Paul Walker seemed to be.

  38. Micah says:

    That is a SMUG SHOT….not a mug shot.

  39. Jem says:

    Methinks maybe this arrest only provided him with the validation he was seeking anyway: He’s such a REBEL now! So GANGSTA!

    GAG.

  40. bettyrose says:

    He really is a pretty little thing though.

  41. Oh sure, Scooter, blame the black kids.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I was just about to comment on that!

      “Lil Za, Milk and Lil Twist are particularly bad influences on him.”

      Um….maybe it could be said that Bieber is the bad influence on them.

      • magpie says:

        Yup. Sorry, but you are the company you keep. Birds of a feather…if he wasn’t such a dope he wouldn’t hang out with these jerks in the first place.

  42. Elodie says:

    It’s actually pretty sad to witness what’s happening with him. Not saying that he’s not to blame for his situation because he completely is but the background is sad : he grew up with a single mom in a small town in Canada and all of a sudden he’s a famous millionaire living in Hollywood. His dad MIA most of his life and since he got famous magically comes back, his mom seemed to let him do whatever he wanted and spoil him. He has no parental guidance to help him deal with the overwhelming fame and wealth. Honestly, parenting and family is actually so important in developing a child’s personality and life decisions. I don’t think he would be so out of control if his mom put some restrictions on him when he became big, because not every single young person finding fame is has a downfall. Obviously you can’t blame the parents all the way round for someone’s poor decisions but sometimes it *is* a contributing factor. I think most people would end up like him if they became millionaires at 15 and had no positive role models or parental guidance. It’s so easy to get caught in that lifestyle. Once again, not excusing his behaviour but one can see how it happened. He has no perception of reality. He’s basically been living in a fantasy world where everyone he meets worships him. IMO, child stars need a strong support system and parents/family that are strict, sharp and have the child’s best interests at heart, otherwise they’re screwed, though of course not everyone has one’s best interest at hear. Oh well, good luck dude.

    • Cassie Bee says:

      I so agree with you.

      I like to see celebrities who don’t commit crimes and do not cause serious trouble who also show decent behaviour almost all the time. When you research a little bit of their backgrounds sometimes you can find good work done by the parents or other responsible and well adjusted people. There are very few celebrities who fit in.

      One celebrity as an example is Gisele Bundchen. Despite some stupid harmless opinions and few stupid harmless actions she has so far being a really good person publicly. And she has amazing parents, they raised well SIX daughters who do not cause trouble and behave well socially.

  43. Natalie says:

    The best part about these pictures is the guy with the blanket. Biebs has a blankie-carrier! OMG he’s so gangsta! I wonder how much his blankie-carrier gets paid? I wonder if he has to carry the teddy and the passie and the bottle, too, or if those are separate jobs? So many questions…

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Yes, hahahaha – not to be insensitive but why would any black dude with integrity and street cred want to be associated with this baby dipshit?

  44. Stephanie says:

    I honestly cannot beliebe he still has fans at this point.

  45. Grant says:

    We’ll see how much he loves it when people stop buying his records.

  46. Anna says:

    You guys, I have an idea! One word: RUSSIA. It’s like 98% frozen emptiness and 2% people who are way harder than Bieber will ever be. Come on, how fun would it be to get his ass whooped by any number of people his first day there? Alternate idea: he thinks he’s so tough? Drop him off in Compton for a week.

  47. Kcaia says:

    I pride myself on my sense of humor, and I tend to laugh most at what others find offensive, as long as it’s in the name of funny, but I just think it’s incredibly cruel the way people turn this young boy’s life into some kind of a punch line…he is a human being and his life and feelings are just as valuable as any of yours, if anything more so in the eyes of the almighty dollar…idk, it just bothers me that it’s found acceptable to speak of ANYONE that way…and before the excuses start rolling in, let us not forget the jokes started YEARS BEFORE Justin’s troubles, before puberty even set in for the kid, and I don’t find it surprising at all that he’s becoming what the world WANTS him to be, because doesn’t it always happen that way (99.99998% of the time at least, particularly for youth)? I know he’s rich, young, good looking, talented even, and adored by many, but to me that doesn’t make one’s life easier or better than anothers’. I just think the bullying mentality needs to go ASAP, whether it’s Justin Bieber, Jodi Arias, or a lonely teenage girl, doesn’t matter. In the eyes of God, the ones rooting for the guillotine are just as guilty as the executioner, just as cruel and heartless as the one who ordered it’s fate. If JB is so beneath all these commenters on here, on twitter and facebook, then why do we read and know everything about his life, yet not the other way around? I just think it would be really f-ing sad if this was an obit pic instead of a mugshot. As a MOTHER, I don’t understand how anyone can feel such hate and anger towards a struggling young soul, no matter how “lucky” and “ungrateful” or “undeserving” he or she is. His heart loves and hurts just like yours does….and that is all from me on the subject.

      I don’t think people are “rooting for the guillotine” so much as they are rooting for him to stay sober when he is driving, to stop swerving into on coming traffic, to not speed in residential areas, to stop endangering the public.

      I have friends and family that live in the areas that JB recklessly drives in. You are thinking about JB as if he was your son…think about it if his neighbors were your children? How would you see the situation?

      • Kcaia says:

        Ok if it’s all about the dangerous driving, why was he treated the same before he even had a license? Why isn’t there a public outrage over movies like the fast and furious franchise being marketed to our youth? What about all the work Justin has done for charities? There are two sides to every coin, even if one refuses to flip it over to see the other side. Where is the line drawn between compassion and condemning…because I can’t speak for every commenter on every site, but I can guarantee the issue has more to do with people being way too comfortable hating others than over a famous teenage boys reckless driving and foolish behaviors….so unforgivable! I do and shall only pray that my children never become a scapegoat for a persons or peoples wrath, because we all know nobody is perfect, whether in character or actions, and I just think if people focused on their own faults and mistakes even HALF as much as they do pointing out others, the world would be a much kinder and happier place to be for all. Justin Bieber, Lindsay Lohan, etc., are not the causes of an angry, unforgiving world, imo. They are just some of the many victims. Just like Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston were also. Some people have a hard time finding love for themselves when so many constantly tell them they’re worthless.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        What do you mean, treated the same? There was NEVER this amount of disgust with him before he started being dangerous in public.

        IMO, you can’t equate a movie, which shows LEGAL stunts filmed on a set, to a person actually committing actual crimes. It doesn’t matter if there are two sides to his coin if he kills an innocent person. Everyone has a good side to them, are we not allowed to point out when a person endangers the public just because they might have done something nice at one point? You say that you think the public outrage is because people like to hate and not because of his reckless behavior, but I disagree. For me, I am most concerned about him endangering the public. I think people in general are outraged because they repeatedly see a double standard for justice when it comes to illegal behavior by famous people and non-famous. He has shown little regard for other people in society, why should he or you be shocked that people are showing little regard for him?

      No. I have a lot of compassion for people who are struggling. I believe in forgiving mistakes, and I believe everyone can turn their life around and make bettr choices. But Bieber has shown a special brand of carelessness for everyone around him–pinning his bad behaviors on his friends, peeing in mop buckets, spitting on fans, calling girls “fat” at the pool, abandoning two pets he didn’t want to be bothered with, and turning all his mistakes onto others while turning positive things into his own success. This particular incident is one of the worst. He was going 60 in a residential neighborhood. He was driving under the influence of three substances. He resisted arrest as if he didn’t deserve to be caught or punished. This is not nearly the first time he has done extremely dangerous things in a car where others could be hurt or killed, but he hasn’t learned a damn thing and nothing has happened to him until yesterday. This attitude that he can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants, is not normal or understandable, even for a rich idolized kid surrounded by enablers. I take it personally when he drives in a way which can kill people, just like I take it personally when jerks drive my street going 60 or race on crowded highways going 110. Cars are not toys. He can go rent a speed track. Bieber needs to be held responsible for the horrible things he is doing. I don’t want his head in a guillotine. I want him to stop being reckless with other people’s safety.

      Well, you’re presuming the mocking is rooting in hate. Anger, oh, yes, for many, many many reasons. Also frustration. Frustration over watching him behave in ways that we knew were coming. And our comments didn’t make him behave this way.
      And none of us know whether or not he really is a ‘struggling young soul’ whose ‘heart loves and hurts’. This could be the case. It could also be the case that he’s a narcissist, in which case probably not.
      I don’t feel hate for him. Nor do I have pity for him, not any more. Does this mean I wish him to die, no. I wish for him to grow the fuck up and stop endangering people, including himself.

      • Kcaia says:

        Just to clarify, I’m not trying to say here that everyone that talks crap about JB is a bad person or anything, any more than I’m saying JB is one for his behaviors. I feel bad for him, that’s all. The world must seem like a really cruel and angry place to someone like him…and nobody deserves that. There is a way to express dislike for someones actions without being harsh or uncaring, but I rarely see that with him, but let it be Reese Witherspoon and it’s totally ok, even gives her more likeability to most because it shows she is human too. It just disgusts me the pack mentality when it comes to disliking another…it seems like the few that do care to empathize and stick up for one like JB, either give up or join in with the haters because they get criticized to the ground for giving a f. I know you all are good people, so why can’t you all see that good exists too in one like JB?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “The world must seem like a really cruel and angry place to someone like him…and nobody deserves that.”

        I strongly disagree. He can’t think the world is too harsh on him when he gets police escorts to go from strip club to strip club. When he gets served alcohol in clubs and allowed in, even though he is underage. I know first hand that a celeb of his status does NOT interact with anyone without some sort of barrier or sorting process protecting him first. Even his grandparents can’t contact him without his prior consent. His view of the world has to be limited, and I think that is part of the problem. I think he has been given too many excuses, and therefore, he is unable to see any boundaries at all.

        I do think he can change for the better, but I think he needs to stop being coddled in order for that to happen.

      • cr says:

        @Kcaia: “The world must seem like a really cruel and angry place to someone like him”
        You have no idea if that’s how it appears to him, considering he’s surrounded by sycophants.

        Do I feel bad that he’s surrounded by users, yes, I do. And yes, 19 year olds are often much more idiotic than they think themselves at the time.

        But there are also an awful lot of 19 year olds, both from excellent upbringings and those from horrid ones, who behave much better than this, who do take responsibility for their own behavior, who do learn from their mistakes.

        And I think that’s where a lot of this reaction comes from, as does the reaction to LiLo’s, or even Paris Hilton’s years ago: given plenty of learning opportunities from their stupid behavior, and yet refuse to learn.

        As for Reese, I don’t recall a lot of love or feeling her behavior last May was OK.

        If the reaction to her isn’t as sustained it’s because she hasn’t kept repeating that behavior.

        You see our behavior as herd mentality meanness.
        I see your posts on this as coming from a place of almost too much empathy, where it ends up looking like you’re excusing his behavior because people are mean to him on social media.

        I agree with Tiffany, I think, providing he’s really just screwed up and truly narcissistic, that he can change for the better. But no more coddling or making excuses for him. And that includes people who feel sorry for him.

    • jaye says:

      I’m sorry…this kid has been a danger to the people of the community he lives in w/his reckless driving, he’s driven under the influence and is lucky he didn’t kill someone, he SPIT in someone’s face and damaged his neighbor’s property. He’s an arrogant little jerk who takes advantage of the fact that he’s rich and famous. I MIGHT feel some empathy if he’d be the least bit contrite, but he seems to be taking a page out of Chris Brown’s notebook by NOT taking ANY responsibility for his own stupidity. I know he’s human and he’s young and he’s got a lot to learn and blah blah blah, but I can’t muster any compassion for someone who seems to be giving everyone his ass to kiss.

    I actually feel sorry for him, this guy has lohan parents from the sound of it. I think he is heading for a meth addiction. He looks drugged.

    • Penguin says:

      Me too. Cnt stand the little turd but it’s obvious he’s on the verge of some sort of breakdown. Sounds like even his own parents are a couple of enablers. If I was behaving this way @ his age my parents wld have given me a good talking 2 & locked me in the house for 3 months. It sounds like he has no 1 in his life who gives a crap about him. Sad.

    The US made him famous, they can keep him.

  50. Size Does Matter says:

    I’m pretty sure the people who dispense street cred don’t give it for blowing a .04. Or for blaming mommy for the pills. Next he will claim it was only a contact high, and maybe someone spiked his juice box!

    DUI destroys lives and leaves a devastating effect on the families whose loved ones are tragically killed as a result of a drunk idiot.

    Y’all will not believe what happened to me on Twitter last night. Donnie Wahlberg was a huge a*shole to me on Twitter cos of my reply not to excuse DUI irrespective of fame/not and that he could have killed someone to his Bieber related status. Didn’t expect to get a response from him. Then I get 30 tweets from ‘Blockheads’, it was crazy. I did reply back to him, to clarify what he was saying and said Biebz camp will be making excuses for him. Then he replied saying oh you want to discuss him your just proving what I was saying, good day. What a di*k. I did reply to him saying you twisted what I was saying, told what I meant. Kept my tweets restrained to him and his ‘BH’ didnt want to fall to his level. Immature twat.

    I can see that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He gets his self-entitled a*shole BS attitude from his dad. Threw Selena, his mother under the bus, what a class act. NOT.

  52. jwoolman says:

    He was twice the legal limit for drivers under 21 in Florida. The DMV points out that a single drink is enough to get them busted with an automatic six month suspension of driver’s license. It sounds as though he will be a passenger for half a year no matter what. Doubt he will get jail time, maybe community service?

    His dad might have given him the prescription drugs, but since he was right there I can understand if Justin didn’t want to reveal that. But he really could have gotten them from anyone. Very peculiar that he fingered mom, but she wasn’t there and maybe it’s all the little fellow could think of at the time… He really started acting bizarre once he turned 18 and had full access to his money and no longer had to follow mom’s orders, so I don’t think we can automatically blame her. He seemed hard working and polite in interviews before that, unless someone can remember otherwise. Dad is obviously a problem, though. But otherwise, it seems like the usual turned-18 syndrome. Even Lindsay Lohan seemed ok in her working life until she turned 18, even though she was drinking and drugging before the .

    • Tippy says:

      Biebs only blew a .104 on the Breathalyzer. Cops reported a “strong odor of alcohol” on Bieber’s breath, which would indicate that police lied. If it can be shown that cops lied about certain facts in a case then their credibility needs to be called into question.

      Even Harvey Levin thinks that the entire Miami case against Bieber is a house of cards which is about to come crashing down.

      • cr says:

        Having the ‘final’ results differ from what was initially measured isn’t unusual, and not indication that the cops lied:

        “Breath Tests
        An analysis of breath gas, using a “breathalyzer” (which the police can do immediately, on the road) gives only an indirectly determined value for blood alcohol level (BAC). It’s based on how much alcohol is in some portion of exhaled air, not how much alcohol is in the blood…
        Finally, because breath gas analysis (the breathalyzer test) is often inaccurate, the driver may be asked to take the tests two, or even three, times to produce a consistent result. Failure to give the police all the breath samples they want will result in the driver’s license being suspended.”

      • Tippy says:

        @ CR, .104 is the result that the DA submitted as evidence, so I’m not sure what point it is that you’re trying to make.

        The fact of the matter is that cops often falsify reports and perjure themselves in court in order to successfully prosecute. Police in Florida are particularly corrupt and are notorious for preying on tourists.

        If I were on the jury I’d need to see audio/visual and physical evidence in order to convict.

  53. drea says:

    What’s interesting is that he blew a .014 and according to news reports AND the GPS tracking device that was on the vehicles that he and his buddy were driving at the time of the incident prove that he wasn’t drag racing. I get the zero tolerance aspect of the alcohol but the police said he was wasted and reeked of booze. Clearly he wasn’t drunk. He wasn’t drag racing. What else have the police fudged to make a point. The whole situation reeks of bullshit on the police officers part. I’m certainly not a fan and I’m not condoning his entitled, immature behavior but they went out of their way to make shit up and then try to prosecute. This whole thing is going to get tossed out and he will walk away from it scott free. The police look like the crooks here.

    • aquarius64 says:

      And sadly he’s going to do this again because he, his team and his lawyers will argue all law enforcement agencies are out to get him, and some will buy it. LEOs from here on out will have to exercise due diligence to build solid cases against this twerp, especially if a tragedy occurs.

    • cr says:

      The police report doesn’t say that he was wasted and reeked of booze, that’s TMZ’s wording. And the gps info was also from TMZ and their ‘sources’. Sources who would have presumably also handed that info over the police if they hadn’t asked for it already.

      @aquarius64: even if everything was as initially reported he still wasn’t going to do any time. So now he’ll probably claim that the police are just out to get him and he’ll keep doing what he’s doing.
