Justin Bieber Compares Himself to Michael Jackson After Arrest

Justin Bieber has broken his silence following his arrest on Thursday by comparing himself to the Late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

The teenage singer was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida in the early hours of thursday morning after police allegedly spotted him taking part in a drag race on a residential street. He was later charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest without violence and driving without a valid licence, and was freed on bail.

Bieber has now commented on his legal troubles in a series of posts on his Instagram.com page, uploading a photomontage of himself and late superstar Jackson.

The black and white shot shows Bieber sitting on his car and holding his hand up to fans following his release from jail on Thursday. The snap is superimposed next to a picture of Jackson in 2005 standing on top of a vehicle in a similar pose after he was found not guilty of child molestation charges.

Bieber captioned the montage, “What more can they say” and added a picture of a crown.

A subsequent image shows the 19 year old sitting on a sofa and leaning into the camera, with the caption “Thank u lord”, while a post on the star’s Twitter.com page reads, “You are all worthy no matter what anyone says… Be strong God is with us all… My Beliebers changed my life… I will forever be grateful.”

Justin Bieber Smoked Marijuana, Drank Booze Before Arrest

WENN—Pop star Justin Bieber told police he had been smoking marijuana and drinking booze in the hours leading up to his arrest on Thursday.

The teenager was detained by cops after he was spotted allegedly taking part in a drag race in Miami Beach, Florida in the early hours of the morning, and he subsequently failed a field sobriety test at the scene.

He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) and resisting arrest without violence, and it has now emerged Bieber admitted to police officers that he had been smoking weed and drinking beer during the evening.

He had also been taking an unnamed prescription medication, and was driving on a ‘non-valid’ license, according to local cops.

A police spokesman says, “I don’t have the levels. It’s a combination, when you have narcotics – marijuana and alcohol – it’s the impairment – being impaired while you’re driving.”

The spokesman adds, “At first he was a little belligerent, questioning, using some choice words… He did acknowledge that he did take a prescription medication and that he had been smoking marijuana and that he had consumed a beer.”

The police report filed after the star’s arrest reveals Bieber had allegedly been racing his rented Lamborghini sports car at more than double the speed limit in a residential street, while the officer who detained him claimed the star stunk of booze and had bloodshot eyes.

The report also states Bieber swore at the officers and demanded to know why he had been stopped, raging at the cops, “Why are you doing this?… What did I do? Why did you stop me?”

The report goes on to reveal Bieber told the police he had been on his way home from a recording session at a studio when his car was stopped.

Bieber, who published pictures of himself driving around in the Lamborghini with a female friend prior to his arrest, was taken to a local police station before being transferred Miami-Dade County jail later on Thursday. He was still in custody as WENN went to press, but it is believed bail has been set at $2,500.

Bieber’s arrest sheet, which revealed he has been given the jail number 140003991, showed he was officially charged with DUI, resisting arrest, and driving on an invalid licence.

The driver of the other car which allegedly took part in the drag race has been named as R&B singer Khalil. The 19 year old, full name Khalil Sharief, also remains in police custody.

Justin Bieber Already Back At Work After Christmas Eve Retirement Tweet

Justin Bieber has further proved pre-Christmas retirement talk was nothing more than a joke by returning to the studio.

The pop superstar left fans concerned by tweeting his thoughts about retirement last month. He quickly revealed he was just joking and now it seems he spent the holidays recording new music in Toronto, Canada.

Producer Douglas Romanow tweeted a photo of himself and Bieber working in Romanow’s Noble Street Studios on New Year’s Day, adding “Justin Bieber’s retirement rumors are greatly exaggerated. I’ve been recording him in Toronto.”

On Christmas Eve, it didn’t appear Bieber was joking when he wrote, “My beloved beliebers (fans) I’m officially retiring,” but he later added, “IM HERE FOREVER.”

The tweets ended a troubled year for the teenage star, who hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons in 2013 following a series of odd stunts, including illegal graffiti daubing and urinating in a restaurant mop bucket.

Justin Bieber Declares Retirement Plans Again on Twitter

Pop superstar Justin Bieber gave fans a shock on Christmas Eve by taking to Twitter.com to declare his plans for retirement once again.

The Baby hitmaker first sent fans into a spin last week after telling a Los Angeles DJ he was ready to hang up his microphone for good at the age of 19.

His manager, Scooter Braun, subsequently played down rumours the teen was done with pop, insisting he was simply planning to take some time out in 2014, but Bieber reiterated his intentions to quit the music industry once more on Tuesday, telling his more than 47 million Twitter followers, “My beloved beliebers (fans) I’m officially retiring.”

The message caused frenzied fans to take to the Internet to express their heartbreak, but Bieber then appeared to dismiss his own claim with a series of follow-up posts.

He went on to add, “The media talks a lot about me. They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I’m never leaving you, being a belieber (fan) is a lifestyle.

“Be kind loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ Merry Christmas IM (sic) FOREVER.”

Bieber’s confusing posts appeared online hours before the release of his new concert documentary, Justin Bieber’s Believe, hit cinemas in North America, and it seems he hasn’t given up singing at all – he shared a number of videos on Instagram.com on Christmas Day featuring snippets of him singing acoustic versions of his tracks U Smile, Confident and Swap It Out.

Hotel Guest Lodges Complaint Over Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has hit headlines in Australia again after a guest at a hotel in Perth lodged a complaint over the star’s behaviour.

The Baby singer concluded the Down Under leg of his Believe world tour in Perth on Sunday, and he spent the hours leading up to the show relaxing by a swimming pool at the Hyatt Regency hotel.
However, a fellow guest at the hotel lodged a complaint against the star over allegations she heard him shout nasty comments at a group of young girls who were sunbathing in bikinis.

Helen Robinett, from Melbourne, tells The West Australian publication, “There were four young girls in bikinis. One girl who was gorgeous looking, with long dark hair and would have been about a size 14. Justin looked over at her and said ‘What are you, Hawaiian or something?’ She said ‘No, I’m not’. Then he said ‘You look like a beached whale’… The girl said ‘Are you serious’ and he said ‘You should go on (weight loss TV show) The Biggest Loser’… The whole pool deck heard him call this beautiful young girl a beached whale. Everyone heard. And there was silence. It was almost like his security were used to it.”

Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks Offer to Mentor Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun has been inundated with offers from the likes of Eminem, Oprah Winfrey and Tom Hanks to mentor the teen superstar.

The Baby hitmaker’s ill-advised antics on tour and at home in California, which have included brushes with the law and headline-grabbing incidents, have prompted big names to offer up their help and advice.

Bieber’s bad behavior has included nightclub altercations, arguments with his neighbours, disappointing fans by rushing through meet and greet sessions and public urinating  claims.

The incidents have prompted a slew of concerned celebrities to reach out to Braun to see if there is anything they can do to help the youngster avoid destroying his career, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In a candid new interview with Braun and Bieber, the singer’s manager reveals he has fielded calls and emails from Winfrey, singer Adam Levine, rapper Drake and Mark Wahlberg, while Hanks’ wife Rita Wilson offered up her husband’s counselling skills to help the 19 year old avoid the pitfalls of fame.

And Braun claims Eminem’s manager, Paul Rosenberg, told him, “If you ever want Eminem to talk to him (Bieber), he would do it in a second. He cares about that kid.”

Braun has yet to take up the stars’ offers to advise Bieber during times of trouble as there is already one big name who is trying to keep the teen in check – Will Smith.

Braun claims Smith, whose son Jaden is good friends with the singer, once paid Bieber a much-needed visit and pulled him out of bed for a three-hour chat.

The manager recalls, “He (Bieber) said, ‘Man, that makes me feel so loved. I woke up, and there’s Will Smith, one of, if not the, biggest movie stars on the planet. He took time out of his day for me.'”

Smith has continued to make himself available to Bieber for weekly phone conferences, but the Independence Day actor has warned Braun the youngster will have to live and learn from his own mistakes: “He’s telling me: ‘Justin’s got to go through it. You can’t stop him from going through it. That’s youth in itself. He’s a young man who’s growing up, and that’s what makes him interesting and relatable. Otherwise, he’d be some kind of weird robot.'”

During the interview, Bieber expressed his carefree attitude towards his critics, saying, “I don’t (care) what they say… I know who I am and what I’m doing in my life and what I’ve accomplished and continue to accomplish as a performer, as a writer, as an artist, as a person, as a human being. I’m happy with the man I’m becoming.”

Katy Perry Knocks Justin Bieber Down a Notch in Social Media Ratings

Recently, Katy Perry has surpassed Justin Bieber as the top icon on social media, now owning the most followers. Although Perry may have a better public image than Bieber, especially after complaints of his borderline-illegal behavior, both have shown the power of social media and what it can do for a career. They are two of the biggest music artists around today with multiple awards and platinum records apiece, but what they truly have is a marketable brand. Perry and Bieber know what demographics to target and are very successful at doing so.

For the longest time, businesses have ignored social media and in some cases are still neglecting or mismanaging their usage of the platform. But, during this past decade,more and more brands have discovered the benefits of a solid presence on social media. There are many companies who find maintaining a proper social mediaoutlet to be a challenge; however, the rewards carry the power to maximize the most out of public outreach. The best way to achieve that outreach is to attract a large following.

Justin Bieber Parties in Strip Club

Justin Bieber reportedly partied in a strip club in Houston, Texas, on Friday night (18.10.13).
The ‘Heartbreaker’ hitmaker, who split from Selena Gomez earlier this year, allegedly left one of the professional dancers in the club, VLive, in ”shock” after grabbing her butt.
Known as DiamondsR4Ever, she tweeted on Saturday (19.10.13): ”@justinbieber went The Fuk In Tonight!!
”He Touched My Ass I Almost Fainted!
”He Was Like Its Real!! (sic)”
She added: ”I’ve Danced For A lot Of Celebrities And They Normally Don’t Phase Me But Justin just Had Me In Shock!
”I am now a @justinbieber Fan”
The dancer also claimed that Justin was partying at the club with boxer Floyd Mayweather, 36, and hinted the duo were extremely generous.
She wrote: ”S/O (Shout out) to @FloydMayweather Too!! MoneyTeam went In!!”
The Canadian singer, 19, has sparked controversy for partying in over-21s nightclubs in recent months.
The ‘Beauty And A Beat’ singer’s mother Pattie Mallette recently admitted she finds it ”difficult” to let him make his own mistakes.
She said: ”When your kids hit a certain age your parenting style changes and it is hard letting go.
”His life was my life and now I’ve had to let him go a little bit and let him be independent. It is hard to not be able to control everything that your adult child does.”
