Justin Bieber Apologizes After Getting Caught Smoking Weed: “I’m Trying To Be Better”
Justin Bieber‘s squeaky clean image has officially gone up in smoke.
The 18-year-old Canadian pop star was photographed puff, puff, passing what appears to be marijuana inside a hotel room in Newport Beach, Calif. recently. Surrounded by a slew of teens and bottles of Corona, the singer was allegedly accompanied by his BFF, rapper Lil Twist. The images were obtained and published by gossip site TMZ, causing the “Beauty and the Beat” singer to address the controversial photos via Twitter.
“Everyday growing and learning,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up. I see all of u. I hear all of u. I never want to let any of you down. I love u. And… thank u. Like I said… 2013… new challenges…. new doubters. I’m ready. We are ready. See u all tomorrow and everyday after that. Back on tour tomorrow. Ready to see u all smile. Time to do what I’m supposed to be doing. Performing.”
Meanwhile, Bieber’s team, including manager Scooter Braun, are rumored to be fuming as they try to figure out how the photos could have been leaked to the press. “His team isn’t happy about those photos,” a source told Us Weekly. “They are grilling security about who could have taken them.”
