On Jan. 5, Justin made his first public appearance at a Utah concert since photos emerged of him allegedly smoking what appears to be marijuana.
Justin Bieber took off his shirt in an attempt to thank his fans for their undying support at a Salt Lake City, Utah concert on Jan. 5. This sign of appreciation comes a day after photos were released of Justin allegedly smoking what appears to be marijuana at a hotel party on Jan. 2.
After thanking his fans for their continued support, Justin, 18, took off his shirt and exposed his chiseled torso to the sold out venue. Justin was left in a pair of black pants and white underwear that crept over his pant line.
A day after the photos surfaced, Justin used Twitter to address the controversy and to thank his fans.
Justin tweeted on Jan. 5, “I see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and..thank u. like i said…2013…new challenges. new doubters…Im ready. We are ready. see u all tomorrow and everyday after that. goodnight ladies.”
In the pictures, originally posted by TMZ, Justin is seen holding what appears to be a “roll-up” as he hangs out with friends inside a hotel room in Newport Beach, California.
This isn’t the only controversy that currently surrounds Justin. He and Selena Gomez have broken up — again.
An insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Justin has been upset about it. The splitting up and getting back together has been hard on both of them.”
The biggest issue that the young couple is facing now is “timing,” says the source. “He’s got so much touring coming up. I don’t know how they’re going to see each other.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Justin going shirtless to distract his fans from what’s really happening?
