Justin Bieber's DUI: Frankly, I Don't Care
Oops. He did it again. Justin Bieber was just busted for drunk driving and drag racing at 4 a.m. after leaving a Miami Beach strip club (where he allegedly spent tens of thousands of dollars!). He didn't take it well. Resisting attempts to pat him down, he shouted, "I ain't got no f---ing weapons. Why do you have to search me? What the f--- is this about?" and "What the f--- are you doing?"
All of it, of course, captured on cell phones and posted online—from videos of his arrest to his mug shot (he's smiling!). It's just the latest instance of the once-sweet teenybopper breaking bad (sneaking out of a Brazilian brothel, illegally spray painting a hotel wall, urinating into a mop bucket while yelling "F--- Bill Clinton" and desecrating a photo of the former president). Age-old tragedy of a child star growing up and going off the rails? Or, as cynics say, an orchestrated train wreck to turn him into a sexy, dangerous but very adult superstar? It makes for great headlines, snares lots of eyeballs, but frankly, I don't care. My 12-year-old daughter could care less. Do you? Does anyone?
How would you handle this behavior if it was your teen?
