Justin — what are you thinking? Yes, we know that you’re a 19-year-old guy who wants to have fun, but isn’t it time to start acting like a role model again? You have millions of fans!
Justin Bieber — do you really want the world to remember your South American “Believe” tour, mostly for your trip to a brothel and a video of you sleeping? You’ve worked so hard for the past several years to be recognized as a huge talent, to sell millions of albums, and to become adored by a gazillion fans.
Justin Bieber In Bed After Brazilian Brothel Visit — Not A Good Idea
You’ve earned the love and respect of both celebrities and “real” people alike. You’ve given millions of dollars to charity, especially charities helping children, and you’ve visited countless sick kids and had a special, loving relationship with Avalanna “Mrs. Bieber” Routh, who sadly passed away from brain cancer.
After all of your accomplishments and responsible behavior, do you really want/need to party this hard?
There are lots of hot, fun clubs to go to in Rio de Janeiro — did you really need to visit an infamous brothel, Centaurus? I’m not sure that too many people are buying the supposed explanation that you thought it was a private club. After all, you reportedly spent three hours there. Hmm!
Then there’s the video that hit the web today, Nov. 7, of you sleeping peacefully on a pull-out couch while a pretty girl giggles and blows kisses at you.
She’s one of about fifty people who went back to your private villa to party after your concert in Rio de Janeiro, a source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. You fell asleep on a couch while you were on your phone, the insider tells us. The young woman, who is allegedly a Brazilian model named Tati Neves, filmed the video while you slept.
Yes, it was definitely an invasion of your privacy. “It’s sick and twisted that someone would violate his privacy like this,” our source says. And we agree — it was not a cool thing to do.
But Justin, you have to know by now that you are a humongous star that people want to be close to — especially young girls and women.
If the reported young woman, Tati, had a chance to take a video of you to “brag” that she was close to you, then why wouldn’t she? The temptation was just too great.
Justin Bieber: Be Smarter About Your Partying
That’s why you have to be smarter about not putting yourself in compromising situations, like partying and falling asleep with strangers in your house or hotel room. Or like going to a brothel, where you are of course, going to be recognized.
“He definitely should be a little cautious as to who his friends are. He needs to be cautious,” the insider says.
And the insider is totally right, Justin — you need to be more careful about what you do, who you hang around with, and where you go. You are a public figure who earns millions of dollars a year because you are beloved by your fans. If you don’t uphold your reputation as a role model, you may test the loyalty of some of your fans, who don’t like bad boy behavior.
Even though you’ve done nothing seriously naughty here — lots of young men party with girls and satisfy their curiosity about local “hot spots” — you can’t do everything a regular guy can.
There are trade-offs to being a wealthy, successful celebrity. One of those trade-offs is to be responsible for yourself and to your fans, which means NOT putting yourself in potentially compromising situations.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t date or party with lots of different girls. Just make sure they don’t have cell phones available, to sell you out if you innocently fall asleep because you’re just plain exhausted.
Justin — be as smart about your personal life as you have been about your career. Don’t you agree, HollywoodLifers? Should Justin stop with all the brothel visits and falling asleep in front of strangers with cell phones? Let me know.
