Say buh-bye to Justin Bieber’s squeaky clean image.
The heartthrob has embarked on a New Year’s resolution to “be better” after sources told TMZ that Bieber smoked a joint with Young Money rapper Lil Twist in a Los Angeles hotel room last week. Photos uploaded to the celebrity gossip site seem to back up the report.
The photos were taken Wednesday, one day after a paparazzo was hit and killed while trying to take photos of Bieber’s Ferrari on a busy L.A. highway. Lil Twist was driving, but Bieber was not in the car at the time of the incident.
Bieber can be seen sitting on a couch and interacting with a group of people in a hotel room while holding what appears to be marijuana.
Justin hasn’t commented on the pot claims, but he took to his Twitter page on Saturday to share his 2013 resolutions with his fans.
“Everyday growing and learning. Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up. I see all of u. I hear all of u. I never want to let any of you down. I love u. I’m ready. We are ready. See u all tomorrow and everyday after that. Back on tour tomorrow. Ready to see u all smile. Time to do what I’m supposed to be doing. Performing (sic).”
We’re barely a week into the new year, but Justin is already the second celeb in just days to find himself at the center of a controversy over the green stuff. Rihanna attracted the ire of fans when she posted snaps of weed on her Instagram account.
