Justin Bieber is joining Cody Simpson in the studio for a “Special Project”, which the Australian pop star announced on Ustream on Monday night (July 21). “We have some magic music coming for you,” Cody said. “I’m pretty excited to show you what’s going on.” Watch a replay of the Ustream chat and performances below.
Floyd Mayweather has come to the support of his famous friend Justin Bieber, stating he supports the Canadian pop singer in wake of footage showing a 15-year-old Bieber saying the N-word while telling a racist joke. Floyd writes:
Justin has been nothing but kind to me, my daughters and sons over the years. We all make mistakes when we are young, it’s part of growing up. I am proud of what he’s doing as a 20 year old musician and business man. #TMT
In wake of The Sun releasing a video of Justin Bieber making a racist joke years ago, reportedly filmed during the 20-year-old pop star’s “Never Say Never” documentary years ago, Bieber has issued an apology. The clip features a smirking Bieber asking: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?” before issuing the insensitive punch line: “Run n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–,” as if imitating the sound of a chainsaw.
Bieber’s apology states:
As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance.
Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all those I have offended.
I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again.
Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what’s right.
Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I’m grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again….I’m sorry.
TMZ is suggesting that Selena Gomez’s decision to appear out in public the other night at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood with her good friend and former ‘Barney’ co-star Demi Lovato the same day Justin Bieber was released from jail was to send a message to her ex-boyfriend. Selena ignored questions about Bieber from the paparazzi while signing autographs for fans instead of staying in hiding, which Harvey Levin and crew suggested was to put it out there that she’s sober and not a jailed druggie like Bieber or his new squeeze Chantel Jeffries, and that she’s not particularly broken up about Justin’s legal dilemma.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking, weighed in on news that Justin Bieber had been arrested for drunk driving early Thursday in Miami Beach, urging the Canadian pop singer to be given a tough sentence if found guilty of his DUI charge. They write:
Today, we heard about another celebrity being arrested for DUI, and this time it’s a celebrity that isn’t even of legal drinking age—19-year-old Justin Bieber. Underage drinking is dangerous, not to mention illegal, and it is unacceptable for anyone to make the choice to drive drunk, especially a celebrity, who may been seen as a role model.
Drunk driving is a choice, and it is 100-percent preventable.
As with any drunk driving arrest, MADD believes everyone has the right to a fair trial, and if found guilty, should be convicted and sentenced to the full extent of the law. We encourage judges to use the full power provided by law in each state to determine appropriate sanctions for anyone convicted of drunk driving.
Our hope that a high-profile DUI arrest such as this one will serve as a reminder to adults 21 and over, both celebrities and fans alike, to plan ahead for a safe way home if their plans include alcohol, as well as reminds those under 21 that drinking alcohol is illegal.
Midnight Red checked in with their Twitter followers (@ItsMidnightRed) earlier today, weighing in on news that pop peer Justin Bieber had been arrested for DUI, drag racing and resisting arrest in Miami Beach early this morning. The boy band write:
@justinbieber needs people’s support not criticism & sarcasm. Never look down on people unless you’re helping them up.
Selena Gomez is reacting to the video of ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s alleged one night stand with Tati Neves, where the busty Brazilian videotaped evidence of her conquest of the pop star asleep in bed before blabbing details of their encounter with The Sun.
“Selena pretty much knew that Justin and Tati hooked up just by looking at the video of him sleeping in bed,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com. “What Tati said hurts because Selena still has feelings for Justin and doesn’t need or want to know what he’s doing behind closed doors.”
And no, Gomez isn’t buying the story that Bieber was creeped out by a fan sneaking into his room to record the footage.
Tati Neves spoke with British newspaper The Sun after making headlines around the world for posting a video of Justin Bieber sleeping while on tour in Brazil. The 27-year-old claims to have slept with the pop star, insisting that Bieber is “well-endowed – and very good in bed.”
Describing their encounter, Neves said, “Justin looked at me and called me over. It was one of the best moments in my life … It was marvelous and unforgettable. He has quite a fit body and he looked great naked.”
As for the creepy video being posted for the world to see, Neves claimed that she sent the video to a female friend to prove where she was, and it was the friend that leaked it online. “The video was just for her eyes only. I am really, really angry with her,” Neves explained.
Justin Bieber checked in with his Twitter followers (@justinbieber) on Wednesday night, apologizing to the people of Argentina after an Associated Press report by Michael Warren said the Canadian pop star treated Argentine flags tossed on stage “like dirty rags, using his shoes and then a microphone stand to sweep them off the stage.” But the 19-year-old painted a different picture, writing:
Heard about what is going on with me down in Argentina and I’m shocked. I love Argentina and have had some of the best shows of my tour there
people throw stuff on my stage all show and I get it to the stage hands to get off so no one got hurt. That video I saw a bra and thought…
…it was a shirt. I’m being told by my team it was a shirt but even if it was a flag I would never do anything to disrespect Argentina…
…or the people of Argentina or the fans. I’m so sorry for anyone who took my actions the wrong way and I hope you can forgive this mistake
so once again to the people of Argentina. I’m sorry if that was taken the wrong way and I’m sorry for my mistake. I hope you can accept this..
..and I loved my time there performing for you and look forward to coming back. I gave my all and I know the fans did there too. te amo
I would never do anything to disrespect my fans. I don’t like having to defend myself but this time it was needed as I mean no disrespect
so it is all love all around the world. thanks
and to all the Beliebers ALL AROUND THE WORLD. I love you and thank you for always standing by me. Much Love to Everyone. thanks
