What do you do when you are a teen sensation so early on in life, and you have to grow up with all that media attention? Well, if you happen to be Justin Bieber, you get away with a lot of lurid stuff. Life at some point appears to revolve around you. Heck, we bet Bieber could wish the sun away and the sun would oblige!
When Bieber shows up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and makes an apology for all the crazy stuff that he has been doing, you begin to wonder who he’s apologizing to. Just because you are on a celebrity talk show and obnoxious girls and women are screaming their lungs out with respect to your mere presence, we are pretty sure even the apologies made were not really recognized. As a matter of fact, it’s just one of those moments when a celebrity shows up on screen, and like a seasoned politician, takes advantage of the opportunity accorded to them.
Conceited, arrogant, self-centered, are just some of the few words that have been used to describe his antics, but who are we to judge? The fans love him, and they forgave him!
10. DUI, Drag Racing in Miami
At times it is hard to understand what fans love in Bieber. One day he’s belting out one really amazing track, the next day he’s giving the world a bitter pill to swallow. Take this case for example. We do understand that he is a celebrity, but that does not put him above the law. Even Malia Obama is not above the law. Justin was not only cited for drag racing, but he was also on the wrong side of the law for driving under the influence, driving with an expired license, and – wait for it – resisting arrest. Who does he think he is?
9. Pastor For 2 Weeks
How often do you come close to your worst and imagine that perhaps it is time you went back to God, confessed and got absolution for your sins, and started a new chapter altogether? This is a rollercoaster that the good Lord probably has gotten used to. However, when Bieber does it, in celebrity fashion, he takes ludicrous to a whole new level. He apparently decided to become a pastor, an experience that lasted only two weeks. To make matters worse, he chose to get baptized in a NYC bathtub. Blasphemy has never been so obnoxious!
8. Attempted robbery, California
If there is one thing that we know about many a celebrity, it has to be the fact that they barely ever know how to lose. Quite a number are sore losers who never take a loss lightly, and such is the character that we can associate with Bieber. Once, while in a batting cage, an altercation ensued between his group and another, and a woman who caught the entire episode on camera had a sordid story to tell. To get her to delete the photos, Bieber committed several offences, in the process being charged with robbery. Notwithstanding, the lady’s small daughter witnessed it all.
7. Crash ATV in Ontario; Assault
Love does make people do stupid things. When you are in love, it feels like nothing else matters other than that moment and that person that you want to share it with. So was the case with the on and off Justin–Selena relationship. In fact, what were those two kids doing together in the first place? Driving an ATV in Ontario, Justin crashed their preferred mode of transport into a minivan, and ignoring the fact that he was in the wrong, proceeded to engage in a physical altercation with the minivan owner. Of course he had to face assault charges, the law knows no celebrity status.
6. The Orlando Bloom Bust-Up
Fans might love him to the point of allowing Bieber to get away with a lot of crap, but one Orlando Bloom just wasn’t going to sit down and let a poorly behaved child get away with it. Once, while Bloom was hanging out with his close pal Leonardo DiCaprio, Bieber entered the joint where the big screen hotshots were having fun. For some reason, Bloom refused to shake the kid’s hand, and an irked Bieber couldn’t take it. In retaliation he said something rude about Bloom’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, and what ensued was perhaps a good warning to Bieber that he should know his place.
5. Uses a Wheelchair to Skip Lines in Disney
When you go to Disneyland, it’s only fair for you to wait in line like all the other people. Everyone is always excited about going to Disneyland, until a spoiled brat with the name of a celebrity shows up. First of all, with the celebrity tag, you get exemptions from things like standing in line (automatically, sic!). As it turns out, that wasn’t enough for Justin. Instead, he pretended to be injured, and had to be carted all around the park in a wheelchair.
4. High as a Kite
The sins of the fathers…so the saying goes. Some kids are always destined to turn out to be the spitting image of their parents, and such is the fate that befalls Bieber. Who smokes weed on a flight?? You are not even supposed to be smoking on a plane in the first place. Once while on a flight with his dad, big Bieber and small Bieber decided to bond in a special way, smoking weed and filling up the plane with smoke. Such was the mess that the pilots had to put on oxygen masks in order to steer the plane to safety.
3. Celebrity Urine
At times when you see some of the things that celebrities do, it might leave you utterly surprised. Some of their behaviors leave nothing to your imagination, with some coming close to stuff you would only expect to see animals do. Bieber once decided the best way to mark his territory was to pee in the snow, and use his celebrity urine to mark out his territory. After that, he further proceeded to pull over in a high end neighborhood and spelled out his initials once again in the snow, in his urine. Even Midas wouldn’t have the guts to do this!
2. Bad Neighbor
We all have that neighbor that drives us nuts, that neighbor that gives us a really difficult time for one reason or another. If the novelty of their new stereo system hasn’t worn off yet, then perhaps it is the new turbo they just installed on their new car, or the pool party that lasted till 5am. Well, Bieber is that kind of neighbor. For some reason, the idiot in him found it rather necessary to pelt the neighbor’s house with eggs, in the process incurring more than $80,000 in damages. It’s no wonder not so many of his neighbors like him.
1. Too tired for the Great Wall of China
If you are ever tired, you should be honest about it. Bieber on the other hand likes to take advantage of people. Once when visiting the Great Wall of China, he simply felt tired. This is a trip that you are supposed to take when you are fit and ready for the challenge that lies ahead. Instead, he feigned fatigue, and instead of resting like any other person, made his bodyguards carry him shoulder high to the end of the trip. At the end of it all, he miraculously got his energy back, and could be seen taking photos for his Instagram profile, all smiles.
