I saw Justin Bieber on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and thought, ok…the kid looks not so much like a baby anymore and hmmm, I am interested to see what kind of interview they were able to get since the Biebs seems to be plenty busy with things other than music. Sizzurp, anyone?
Well, to celebrate his 20th birthday, he landed the cover and according to their website, Rolling Stone is instead focusing on the hard fall of Justin Bieber. Seems legit because yes, it IS happening and maybe this article will snap the Biebs right back into reality? Or not…but, hey you never know!
Via Rolling Stone:
One of Justin’s wildest nights went down at a Miami strip club called King of Diamonds Gentlemen’s Club.
Bieber puffed a G Pen weed vaporizer and blew through the $75,000 in small bills his bodyguards brought for him in the VIP room, accepting lap dance after lap dance. The occasion? The January birthday of Bieber’s pal, rapper Lil Scrappy. Two days later, Justin was arrested for drag racing in a rented Lamborghini.
Insiders blame Bieber’s dad for encouraging Justin’s bad behavior.
Bieber’s 38-year-old pop Jeremy split with Justin’s mom when he was a toddler, but has reappeared in a big way. “His father’s not a great influence,” says a source. “They’re almost not like father and son — it’s more like two best friends.” Jeremy was in the strip club with Justin, enjoying the overflow of his son’s parade of strippers, and was also present when Bieber was busted for drag racing (he was accused of helping block off traffic).
As early as 2010, Bieber began to show signs of stress.
Justin broke down in tears backstage one day, bemoaning his lack of privacy. “If you want the Michael Jackson career, you have to grasp that you are never going to be normal again,” his manager Scooter Braun told him.
Justin Bieber’s wild decline: a timeline of the Canadian idol’s spiral
Three authority figures confronted Justin after his night in jail – but that didn’t slow his wild behavior.
After his night in jail, Bieber left Miami for Panama, with his gal pal Chantel Jeffries. Usher, Bieber’s mother and Braun flew to Panama to have a serious talk about his the singer’s behavior, shipping Jeffries back to Miami. A source close to the Bieber camp said the trip wasn’t an intervention, but “a conversation, reminding him of the people who care about him, and to consider things to do about it.”
After the non-intervention, Bieber and his dad took off on an even more out-of-control trip.
Justin and Jeremy rented a private plane to take them from Toronto to Teterboro Airport outside New York for the Super Bowl. According to a leaked incident report, the pair were so verbally abusive to a flight attendant, she hid in the cockpit with the pilots. The pilots were so overcome by the weed smoke, they had to wear oxygen masks to fly the plane.
In other words, his dad is enjoying the life his son is living too and he certainly hasn’t grown up himself. But oxygen masks to fly a plane because the air is hazy? Now that is just damn scary. They are just lucky they got from point A to point B that day.
So what happens from here on out? We sit and watch ever so patiently with popcorn in hand.
