Justin Bieber is pledging to raise the bar as new photos alleging marijuana use have hit the Web.
In pictures posted by TMZ on January 4, the 18-year-old is seen holding what the site claims is marijuana while hanging out with other young adults in what appears to be a hotel room.
Bieber's reps have not commented on the photos or allegations of marijuana use, which have circulated since a paparazzo died in a traffic accident last week after taking pictures of Bieber's parked white Ferrari.
TMZ reported that the photographer said he saw Bieber driving and smoking what he believed was marijuana from a pipe hours before the accident occurred.
At the time, the teen's representation told CNN, "It’s really sad that people are trying to push a story without the facts so soon after this tragic accident. Justin was not present or involved in this incident and the focus should remain on honoring the memory of the victim."
Bieber himself has not commented on the images, but he did take to Twitter not long after they were posted to tell fans he's making an effort toward improvement.
"[E]veryday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up," Bieber tweeted after midnight January 5. "[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...Im ready. We are ready. see u all tomorrow and everyday after that."
Later that day, Bieber arrived in Utah for a performance and, as he has in the past, made time for a fan in need of an uplift.
According to Salt Lake City's KSTU, the singer visited a 7-year-old fan named Millie Flamm who's battling leukemia. Flamm had tickets to Bieber's concert that Saturday but couldn't attend after a relapse sent her back to the hospital.
Flamm's father told the CNN affiliate that she has been fighting leukemia for a little more than three years. KSTU reports that a group of moms urged Bieber via Facebook and Twitter to pay Flamm a visit when he came in town, but no one knew if he'd make it.
That night he did, much to Flamm's surprise - she had no idea others were petitioning for his visit on her behalf.
There are actually loads of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice level to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up where the most important factor will probably be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the impression of just a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
The Biebs can only sing a within a narrow range; maybe he is talented and musical and plays guitar but he cant sing.
Oh, the horror! An 18-year-old man smoking a joint in private with his friends.
I wish him the best. However if his life is run by a bunch of sycophants he needs to quit and consider going to college. Perhaps he will make a great physician, lawyer or civil engineer some day, get married and be a great husband and great dad.
He looks 12 years old.
u here...i have a short dinner tommorrow then....back on the "balcony" 10pm–bb
Marijuana? Shoot. I thought they may have had the goods on him, with another man besides Selena.
we don't care about weed..we care about the state of california and how lovely it is this time of year
OMG, WEED! Yawwwwn, who cares, it's en-route to be legal nation-wide. If anyone needs something to reduce stress and relax, a high-profile person would certainly top that list. Also, this is 'Murica, he has the free-will and obligation to rebel against unjust laws, just like EVERY ONE OF YOU DO IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER! Never thought I'd say this, but leave the Biebs alone and go back to complaining about how everyone is out to get you ;)
what a customer drawer...
THAT PICTURE WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF POOP WAS COMING OUT HIS BUTT.
he's in hong kong.
GOOD ASSOCIATION HELPS.....DON'T THINK BECAUSE YOU ARE RICH AND FAMOUS YOU ARE ABOVE THE
LAW.......YOU DO SOMETHING ILLEGAL YOU WILL GET CAUGHT...TODAY YOU JUST CAN'T HIDE WHAT YOU
ARE DOING WITH OUR ADVANCE AGE OF NEW TECHNOLOGY-THE POLICE KNOW EVERY TIME SOMEONE
BUYS AND SELL IT JUST A MATTER OF WHEN THEY WILL ARREST YOU!
We actually don't know each time someone makes a sale, considering it is happening constantly.
He's a drug addict? Now there's a nice image to have.
Just because he smoked weed doesn't make him a drug addict. Marijuana is healthier than how much sugar a person consumes, FACT. If anything, this is going to help his career. Everyones bashing him because he smoked weed. BIG DEAL. Look at Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Drake, Eminem, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Tyga, etc. Bieber has been doing songs with YMCMB, so if you didn't see this coming, you're an idiot.
i'm having my period today...thats why i'm so broken out as you can see.
I heard she posted on Twits tha tshe is having her first period
nice kid...everyone likes him and he will be the business for awhile
Not a fan of his music, but i do give due respect to anyone that goes out of their way to make sick people feel a little less so.
Oh blah blah to the 1st part of this, but, going to visit 7 yr old Millie...that was cool of him.
put your hands in the air...woooohoooooooo
wow and then u wonder y celebreties get away with anything .
is not going to worry about a pack of photos...he's a powerful kid he can snap the issue right up today if he wanted to.
ignore it Justin.
He's so cute...i hope he gets back with selena...they were such a cute couple
he is soooooooo yyoung he'll be fine...he has so much ahead of him...
Yeah just think he hasn't even been arrested for cocaine posession and soliciting a call girl for the first time yet! I know I'm looking forward to hearing about him hitting that milestone!
he will be fine...its part of growing up nd realizing you cannot trusty anyone..he will learn. he's rich he can hire someone to watch who's doing what with his photos...its very simple.
His mother is a self made millionaire and powerful–they will over come
is his mother and example or is she not an example.
publicty stunt for tour..that's all it is.
Leave the poor boy alone...
who's your daddy Justin
Is this really important news?
Who gives and F... Not I.
i love this kid–he will be fine.
He's a sweet kid. he will survive this one also.
justin is young and will always have his fans.
before you make fun of others.
He's a 19 year old millionaire that works 300+ days a year and you expect him to have better judgment than a 50 year old in the same position
Young girls love him. Justin will be a smash hit for a long time!
I have doubts he will last. His fans are basically young girls, but as they age, more than likely they will leave him behind. His music is targeted for that audience. I suspect five years from now, he will be back in Canada, counting his money and scratching his balls.
he reminds me of one of the cosby kids.
I'm very disappointed in him. Now young girls will think this sort of behavior is ok.
Justin is a rare talent.
A mediocre at best performer that sings most of the songs that were written for him with a lot of help from auto-tuning. Yep that is indeed a "rare talent". *rolls eyes*
They are probably going to say he has cancer if it is confirmed..
look how cute he looks with his little guitar in his hands...awwwwwww
peder a zz
