This goes for anybody that is a celebrity, singer, actor whatever if you are wanting to be famous step up for all it offers good and/or bad.
But what's he doing that is SO horrible or outrageous? He may be famous but he's a human being like everyone else, he's not perfect. People need to stop being so hypocritical and condemn celebrities for things that everyone else does. Who here can say they've never been rude to anyone, never got into an altercation, never received a ticket for speeding, never got drunk or smoked a cigarette or pot, never were a brat in their teenage years, etc.? Just imagine what impression you would leave on other people if everything you ever did was reported on, exaggerated or simply made up. If I were in that situation, I would hope people were more understanding too which is why I try to do the same.

I understand what you are saying but my take is if you are going to be at a higher level of whatever; celebrity, politician, preacher, school teacher, ceo etc. you have to set examples of good conduct, morals, principles and beliefs. If you aren't willing to be held to a higher caliber of living then don't step up in those positions no matter what your age is.

Does that mean nobody can hold those types of positions if they have made mistakes, sinned or broke the law? No it just means they need to declare/confess/speak about them then set about showing they learned from their mistakes.

At all times we are responsible for our own behavior so if Justin wants to cuss, spit, be confrontational, show 6" of his underwear, speed those are his choices. Then he has to deal with the response of those behaviors/choices good or bad.

God he's so douchey now. I think he's more like a follower. Like he thinks smoking weed is cool so he'll do anything to try to fit in with those dorky unknown rappers he hangs out with.

But remember, JB is hopeful that Anne Frank would have been a "belieber".

Please. When was the last time we deported law-breaking immigrants.

while that is a nice thing to do, I don't agree that rock stars, singers, people like Rihanna, Beyonce, Chris Brown, Bieber, etc...they are doing a job of entertaining us, they are NOT supposed to be role models, kids are NOT supposed to look up to them, they are NOT supposed to have whatever morals or beliefs we think are correct. In truth, other than entertaining us, their jobs are not impressive at all, nor important.

How can you compare Justin Bieber to a surgeon, a school teacher, a lab anaylsist.....these are important people, not some dumb kid singing....

I totally agree with the above highlighted but the truth is now days these kids do look up to these entertainers. Look how much money their parents spend from when they were little buying Hannah Montanna stuff or Justin Bieber stuff it almost imprints them to a degree. So if they grow up having all these clothes, posters, purses, bed clothes around them they don't know they really aren't role models.

Parents fail to teach kids now days about morals etc. or what a real hero needs to be doing to be considered one. I was raised service men, fire fighters, police, doctors etc were heros for putting others before themselves. Kids today aren't sadly for the most part.

For goodness sake we just had some girl last week kill I think 5 people because they defriended her on facebook! That is scary knowing there are others out there who put that much importance of their daily lives to social media.
