Yes, you read it correctly. No autocorrect mistakes here. The 14-year-old boy we met on YouTube singing With You who is now the pop megastar Justin Bieber has been captured smoking marijuana in his hotel room just weeks away from his 19th birthday.
This will come as a shock to some people, as the Beauty and a Beat singer has made the effort to speak out against underage drinking, the use of drugs and the distraction of both in the business. However, ‘weed’ is unfortunately becoming increasingly common nowadays with many of our beloved famous faces openly smoking the drug, and it seems the Biebs was curious to try it out whilst cameras caught him in the action.
The pictures, courtesy of TMZ.com, show the former-YouTube sensation giggling holding a joint. It’s quite sad, really. I’m not condoning Bieber’s behaviour or the drug, but at the end of the day he is an 18-year-old who will undoubtedly experiment with (light) drugs and alcohol as many 18-year-olds do around the world. Unfortunately, Justin has to experiment and learn from his mistakes in the public eye with sneaky ‘friends’ selling pictures of him doing so.
Just like Miley Cyrus experienced with the same situation, some ‘close friends’ betray very quickly in the public eye when the opportunity arises. I hope Justin doesn’t receive too much backlash for this as it’s normal for someone his age to try out new things, the only danger is that he could go too far with his wealth and the vast amount of drugs he could easily maintain due to his status and power.
Hopefully it was just the ‘weed’ and beer at this private party.
Justin is currently in the midst of his worldwide Believe Tour – he’s performing a show in Salt Lake City tonight – which hits the UK next month kicking off in Ireland on February 17.
