Justin Bieber apologizes to Bill Clinton for diss after urinating in restaurant kitchen, report says
Is former president Bill Clinton a Belieber?
It may be highly likely, even after Justin Bieber dissed him during a wild night out with friends in Manhattan earlier this year. The 19-year-old singer spoke to Clinton on Wednesday after video surfaced of Bieber urinating into a mop bucket in a restaurant kitchen, then exclaiming, "[expletive] Bill Clinton!" on his way out of the kitchen while spraying a photo of the former commander in chief with cleaning solution, E! News reports.
Clinton responded to Bieber's apology by saying something along the lines of, "If that's the worst you've ever done, all is well," according to E!'s source.
"@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr. President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy," Bieber tweeted following their talk.
The pop star reportedly also volunteered to help with the Clinton Global Initiative, to which Clinton said Bieber should focus on doing good in the world and keep an eye on his friends. (The restaurant video appears to have been shot by a member of the singer's posse.)
That advice seems to have hit home with Bieber, who also tweeted Wednesday, "In life u will make mistakes and people will try and tear u down... but u gotta stay positive. Stay strong. and learn to be better. and... always live to serve others and The Lord. #growingeveryday."
The singer hasn't addressed criticism he received from Chicago Blackhawks fans the same day, for standing on the team's logo and cozying up to the Stanley Cup while posing for photos in the hockey team's locker room. The Blackhawks, however, released a statement saying the NHL championship winners have no beef with the Biebs.
"As frequently happens with guests into our room, Justin inadvertently stepped on the team logo on the floor but moved off quickly once immediately reminded," Blackhawks' media director Brandon Faber said. "He was apologetic and understanding of the tradition... He was extremely genuine and kind with his time."
What do you think? Is Justin Bieber behaving like any young teenager, or are his recent actions inexcusable?
