Since Justin Bieber’s first arrest of the season, I have come across many, many people who are simply outraged. Justin Bieber has allegedly been drag racing, peeing in buckets, watching as his friends (or possibly being involved) in the beating up of his limo driver, egging someone’s home for $20,000 of damages, and using a combination of drugs.
When I look at Justin Bieber, I see an extremely arrogant boy. He hasn’t matured at all. With that, neither have his fans….
While on the computer today, I found this:
“And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.”

Like this story, there are so many more. So many innocent people that have died at the hands of drunk driving; fathers, daughters, mothers, brothers, sons, sisters, people who didn’t do anything to deserve it. His fans can testify to how his Breathylzer level was only 0.011 and 0.014. Florida’s legal limit is .02. However, Justin had major difficulties with other tests. While at the station, he failed a number of sobriety tests like the “horizontal gaze” and “one-leg stand.” Not only that, but it took several attempts for him to breathe in and out for the test. “His speech was mumbled, his pupils dilated, his face flushed and his eyes bloodshot,” CNN reads. What exactly can the group of 16 year old girls say about that?
The limo driver issue occurred in Toronto, Canada. The singer was driving with many friends to a hotel and a fight broke out between the driver and one of the passengers. While the facts haven’t all been stated, the leads point to Bieber.
Earlier this month, Bieber egged his neighbors house. Bieber lives in an expensive neighborhood and has been a fairly disruptive neighbor with late night parties and racing. The neighbor took a voice recording of the incident in which you can hear his daughter screaming; not for Bieber, but for the awful noises to stop.The damage is resulting in replacing the Venetian styled house, a cost of nearly $20,000. After this, a dozen officers raided his home. Then, they found what they believed to be cocaine in plain view! It was later confirmed to be ecstasy.
Lastly, Bieber is allegedly using Xanax and marijuana. What I think is the cherry on top of the pie, his plea as not guilty. I don’t think a judge in the USA or Canada, no matter how much their daughter loves Mr. Bieber, can deny the facts.
The sad thing is; this is mostly true. And who is at fault? Bieber, his parents, society?
Society made him. We crafted a teenage boy who we figured was decent looking. We made his voice sound moderately okay. We disguised his pimples and bad times with more makeup than some girls wear. We fed his ego with being fanatics. When you give someone almost as much power as the President, they can grow insane; they abuse their authority. It happens time and time again. Think of someone like Napoleon. He abused his authority, because we gave it to him. Yes, I think Justin’s actions are absolutely disgusting. No, I do not condone his acts nor do I think I would have done them if I was a rich teen with the world at my fingertips. However, I was raised with two strict parents and he had one teenage mother. It’s proven that kids from slightly dysfunctional families have a harder time. Justin should absolutely be arrested and imprisoned for his heinous acts, if the facts add up. But, we need to learn from this experience and stop people like Usher from crafting little porcelain dolls that break at some point. Bieber may be an “icon” or “hero” to kids, but I’d prefer not to have an army of teenage girls visiting the local prison for concerts.Though, his expensive lawyer and who knows what will probably keep him out of prison for the time being.
The reason I posted this wasn’t to give my two cents, but to prove that sometimes it isn’t just one celebrity’s fault.
