Justin Bieber Admits: ‘ I Was Getting Cockier And Cockier’

 

Justin Bieber is owning up to his bad behaviour after admitting that his bad behaviour was getting out of control. But fans have had a hard time believing whether the singer has been genuine with his apologies.

Back in January, the pop star released a video telling fans: “I’m not who I was pretending to be.”

He was then seen to make an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show in February and said he had done “a lot of things over the past few years that I’m not proud of.”

Some examples of his behaviour include abandoning his pet monkey in Germany, throwing eggs at his neighbours, drag racing a Lamborghini while under the influence in Miami which he was arrested for (the charges were later dropped) and urinating in a bucket while swearing at a picture of former President Clinton in New York.

The Boyfriend hitmaker admitted to his behaviour in an interview with Seventeen Magazine a month after he was ripped apart by comedians in a Comedy Central Roast over his mischievous behaviour.

“I was rebelling a little bit,” he explained. “I was getting cockier and cockier. I didn’t have people to check me. I looked back and I was disappointed in myself.”

He told Seventeen: “You have to own up to the mistakes. You have to say, ‘I’m sorry if I’ve let you down’. I always want to be honest, and let people know that those mistakes aren’t who I am. Who I am is someone who really cares about people.”

Bieber also confessed to letting social media reactions affect his self esteem.

“For a while, I was busy looking at my Instagram likes, and if a post didn’t get a certain amount, I was like, ‘Aw, they didn’t like the photo,’” said Bieber.

He added:“But there’s always a choice. You can let Instagram or stuff on the internet affect your day, or you can choose to not be bothered by it.”

Now these days, he says he chooses “not to be bothered’ by social media.

Justin Bieber Settles Lawsuit With Miami Photographer

A lawsuit against Justin Bieber over an incident involving a photographer in Miami has been settled, according to attorneys.

The lawsuit, filed in Miami-Dade County circuit court, dates back to a 2013 run – in with photographer Jeffrey Binion outside a South Florida recording studio. Binion claimed he was attacked by Bieber’s bodyguards after taking a picture of the pop star, stating that Bieber ordered his bodyguards to ‘rough him up’ and steal his memory card.

Binion filed the lawsuit seeking unspecified damages. After months of mediation between both sides, Binion’s attorney, Mark DiCowden confirmed the settlement on Friday (April 24).

DiCowden declined to comment on the terms of agreement or if it involved a financial settlement.

Binion filed the lawsuit in 2013 seeking unspecified damages. After months of lengthy mediation between both sides, Binion’s attorney, Mark DiCowden, confirmed the settlement on Friday (April 24), saying the terms of the agreement are confidential.

The All That Matters hitmaker, is also being sued by another Florida photographer, Manuel Muñoz, who had snapped a picture of him leaving a South Beach nightclub in January 2014.

Muñoz claimed in a May 2014 lawsuit, Bieber’s bodyguards chased him down a busy tourist street and into a shop where he was locked inside, beaten up and his camera smashed.

Muñoz is seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages.

Bieber’s lawyer, Jeremiah Reynolds declined to comment on Muñoz’s lawsuit.

The alleged incident happened on the same day Bieber was arrested for drag racing a Lamborghini by Miami Beach police.

Bieber struck a negotiation last August with prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to careless driving and resisting an officer without violence. He made a $50,000 donation to a children’s charity and agreed to attend a 12-hour anger management course.

Lil Wayne Squashes Feud With Justin Bieber’s Manager Scooter Braun

Lil Wayne has squashed his feud with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, according to TMZ. After a video was released of Lil Wayne threatening Scooter, it appears the rapper has forgiven and moved on.

TMZ reports, Weezy and Scooter have resolved their feud with other. After hearing that Scooter called fellow Young Money rapper Lil Twist a ‘bad influence’ on Justin, Lil Wayne vented over the situation.

The video in which Lil Wayne appears in can be seen saying: “I heard this b**cha** n***a Scooter talkin’ s**t about my little brother.”

However it seems that the two have put their differences aside and are moving forward.

Phew. The beef couldn’t have been too serious since Lil Wayne and Young Money Entertainment recently forgave Justin for his N-word scandal.

When two videos of a young Justin making racist jokes and saying the N-word appeared questions were raised whether his pal Lil Twist at Young Money Entertainment would stand by him.

Regardless the controversy, Lil Wayne and Young Money forgave Justin. TMZ reported: “Everyone on the label has interacted with Bieber extensively and there has not been a hint of racism on Justin’s part.”

Mack Maine, President of Young Money Entertainment, told the website: “the majority of Justin’s crew is black, and, ‘Bieber does not have a slave mentality. He treats his people with respect.’”

Chris Brown and Justin Bieber Collaborate on New Song

Justin Bieber and Chris Brown confirmed that they were working together on a new single dedicated to their fans when Bieber posted a picture from the studio captioning it: “Studio, me and CB did 1 for the fans.”

The troubled singers who have been caught up in their own share of controversy previously collaborated on Next 2 You for Chris’ 2011 album F.A.M.E.

According to HollywoodLife.com, a source tells the website it was the first time the pair have been reunited since Chris’ release from jail.

The source says: “They talked about how they admire and respect one another and how they are going to put all of their time and energy into this music. They’re both sick of being distracted by the outside world and are both getting back to the basics.”

In the meantime, it appears Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and Lil Wayne have put their differences to a side. Last month, Wayne was seen insulting Scooter in defence of his protégé Lil Twist.

According to TMZ, they have put it behind them, drawing it up to a “huge misunderstanding.”

Justin Bieber ‘Reaches Plea Bargain Settlement’ Over Miami Arrest

Justin Bieber is to settle his Miami arrest with a plea bargain deal that will allegedly see several of the charges against him to be dropped.

According to TMZ, the singer will reportedly plead guilty to the reckless driving charge made during his arrest in January whilst the rest of the charges will be dismissed.

The troubled star was initially charged with resisting arrest, driving under the influence, reckless driving and driving without a valid license when police officers claimed to have caught Bieber and friend Khalil drag racing in the early hours of the morning.

Since it has been reported that the singer was not drag racing or drunk on the night, he tested positive for marijuana.

TMZ reports the reason the plea deal has taken so long is due to the judge’s decision who allegedly wanted Bieber to pay for an anti – drug PSA but backed down upon resistance from both lawyers and prosecution.

Although prosecutors did, however, seem to want the singer to attend a drug and alcohol education course, but the defense argued that he does not have a substance abuse problem. And therefore taking on the course would appear to be admission that Bieber did.

A source told the website: “Bieber will plead guilty to reckless driving and the other charges will be dismissed.  He’ll pay a fine and attend anger management classes.  He will NOT be placed on probation.”

In the meantime, his rapper friend Khalil will also use the same plea and will not have to attend any classes.

Once Bieber and Khalil have completed the requirements of the settlement, the reckless driving conviction will be wiped from their records.

The deal is expected to be entered in court in coming weeks.

Justin Bieber’s Party Pal Lil Za Charged With Three Felonies

Lil Za And Justin Bieber

According to a report by E! News, Lil Za has been officially charged with three counts of felonies following a police search which took place on January 14 at Justin Bieber’s Calabasas mansion, whom he resides with.

The report states that the first two felony counts are drug related as Ecstasy and Xanax were found. The third charge comes from an incident which occurred in jail when the rapper reportedly pulled a phone out of a wall causing damage of $950. His bail has been set at $50, 000.

The charges were made after police had initially been called to Justin’s house following an egg attack on his neighbour.

If convicted of all three charges, Lil Za could face a maximum of nine years in jail. His court hearing has currently been set for February 4 2014 in Van Nuys California.

Justin is currently facing charges from a separate incident. He was arrested on January 23 and faces charges of DUI, resisting arrest non – violently, and driving on an expired license. He also faces charges for an incident that occurred in Toronto.

 

Kylie Jenner Defends Justin Bieber Amidst Egging Drama

During an interview with E! News’ Ken Baker, along with her sister Kendall Jenner, Kylie was asked about friend and pop star Justin Bieber’s recent ‘run – in’ with the law after egging his neighbour’s home. The 16 – year – old did not hold her tongue as she expressed her opinion, saying:

“I feel strongly. Just because I know when we’re in positions like that. And I just feel like people feel like they have the opportunity to, like, kind of mess with you just because of your status. So, I don’t know, I feel strongly.”

She continued. “What are you raiding his house for, to find eggs?” She also went onto say, “I feel like people kind of attack him”.

The singer’s Calabasas mansion was raided by L.A. County sheriffs in search for evidence that would tie him to the incident of egging his neighbour’s home, causing thousands worth of damage.

Authorities were unable to find any linking for further crimes, but an arrest was made on his friend Lil Za for drug charges. Whilst police believe their raid was reasonable, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star thinks it was unnecessary.

The reality star retweeted Maejor Ali’s tweets on the matter:

“Thousands of tax payers dollars were just WASTED by sending 12 ARMED officers with GUNS DRAWN in Justin Bieber’s home to search for Eggs.

“Meanwhile people in Urban communities have a hard time getting ONE officer to come out for DANGEROUS crimes ..So many unsolved murders/rapes.”

Another tweet read: “Shame on you LA County sheriff office and shame on the judge who signed a search warrant for investigating egg- throwing in Calabasas.”

Justin Bieber ‘Won’t Give Up Bad Boy Friend Lil Twist Following DUI’

Justin Bieber And Lil Twist

According to a report by TMZ, Justin Bieber’s camp have been pleading with him to throw out his two BFF’s Lil Twist and Lil Za who live at his Calabasas mansion and drive his several cars.

The 20 – year – old, real name Christopher Lyn Moore was pulled over at 3.30am on Thursday morning for speeding. After being questioned, the rapper was taken to a station by officers and booked for a DUI. Sources told the gossip website that the youngster had lit a blunt in the car when he was pulled over as well having more marijuana being found in the vehicle; a chrome Fisker Karma belonging to Justin.

According to sources, the arrest is reportedly the final straw for Bieber’s camp, who are said to be concerned about the 19 year-old’s behaviour around his new friends and have insisted that Lil Twist and Lil Za are bad influences.

But the insider claims Justin, who recently got into hot water for saying “f*** Bill Clinton,” on camera, his unhygienic restaurant antics and getting kicked out a Chicago nightclub for underage drinking, is standing by his friends and is refusing to throw them out of his home.

Since being in the music industry since the age of 14, a source close to the singer claims that he has mostly been surrounded by adults and isn’t keen on shelving the two rappers, who he considers to be his true friends.

Justin Bieber’s Mum Pattie Mallette Believes Rebellious Behaviour Is Just A Phase: ‘He Will Come Out On Top’

Justin Bieber’s rebellious behaviour has continuously been making the headlines and mother Pattie Mallette defended her son’s latest bad behaviour, including urinating in a bucket of a New York restaurant. Pattie believes that he will eventually ‘come out on top’ and is convinced that the singer will earn from his mistakes and come out for the better.

She told E! News: “My son is not a public figure to me, he is my son. I can’t predict what’s going to be in the headlines,”

“Justin has always been someone who has to do things his way. And I have to be able to believe he will do the right thing and he will come out on top.”

And as it seems that Bieber’s mother is the only one to have faith in the Boyfriend hit maker than most, as he came under fire for his unhygienic restaurant antics as well as getting booted out of Chicago nightclub Bodi for underage drinking.

A representative for the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection told TMZ: “The ticket was issued by the police to Bodi Nightclub for admitting and knowingly having underage persons in the establishment.”

In another interview, Pattie admitted that she doesn’t always agree with her son’s choices but is tremendously proud of him nevertheless.

She told The View ladies: “I think all parents worry about their kids. … I don’t necessarily agree with everything that he does, but we talk about things. I can’t really tell you all the things we talk about, but I’m super proud of him [for] a lot of things he does that don’t make the headlines everyday.”

Justin Bieber Hopes To End Public ‘Witch Hunt’ Against Him With New Single ‘Heartbreaker’

9068634_wenn20157488

Justin Bieber seems to have a positive expectation that his forthcoming single Heartbreaker will break his bad image that has been built over time through his on going antics.

His manager Scooter Braun also has high hopes that it will stop the ‘witch hunt’ against the singer.

It has not been kept hidden of Bieber’s antics especially on his present tour Believe; he has become one of the most bad – mouthed celebrities of the present. So it seems that it is hardly shocking that Bieber wants a clean slate with his new single to prove his critics wrong.

Whilst the 19 – year – old has been teasing his fans with the artwork for Heartbreaker on his Instagram account, and is yet to announce a premiere date for his new single, it is also clear that the teen star is hoping that it will take his music in a different direction.

Braun told MTV News: “So we’re hoping the witch hunt [is] gonna end when he really just speaks for himself in the music.”

He added: “And we’re gonna do it in a way that’s very, very unique, so when you see ‘Heartbreaker,’ know it’s coming directly from him and don’t think [of] the normal ‘Oh this is my single and this is going to be on the album’ [rollout], realise there’s gonna be a very unique way of how this music is going to be released unlike we’ve seen before from him.”

Braun also spoke about Bieber’s new album, the follow-up to 2012’s Believe album, saying: “I’ll just tell you that we’re gonna release music it in a very, very different way with him.

He concluded: “And people and fans should be very excited for the end of this year because he’s just written so many songs on the road. And we decided there needs to be a way to release these songs in a different way than the normal album and be able to allow him to express himself in music while dealing with so many different bulls**t stories every single day.”
