Surprisingly, Justin feels victimized. Just a day after the singer was charged with a DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest, he took to Instagram to post quite the controversial pic on Jan. 24.
Justin Bieber was arrested at four in the morning on Jan. 23 for drag racing while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and after getting out on a $2,500 bail, the singer surprisingly sounded like he had no regrets when he posted a photo comparing himself to Michael Jackson.
Justin Bieber’s First Tweet After DUI Arrest
After Justin’s court appearance, the 19-year-old hopped onto the top of an SUV outside the courthouse to wave to fans. It definitely came off as ignorant — and if it didn’t then, it definitely does now.
On Jan. 24, he posted the photo of himself waving, placed next to a pic of Michael Jackson, The King of Pop, waving to fans on top of his SUV. You may remember Jan. 16, 2004 , Michael did this outside the Santa Maria Courthouse, after he plead not guilty to child molestation charges. For the caption, Justin wrote “What more can they say” with a crown. “What More Can I Say” is also a Jay Z song! Is he comparing him to two of the best artists?
Michael felt like a victim in court during the case, so Justin’s comparison shows that he also feels like a victim. Comparing himself to MJ isn’t exactly the right way to go to stay out of the media.
Justin Bieber Arrested In Miami
This whole debacle began early in the morning on Jan. 23, when Justin was caught going twice the speed limit while racing rapper Khalil down a residential street in Miami. After being pulled over, police suspected that Justin was inebriated, a suspicion he confirmed, admitting that he had taken prescription drugs, smoked weed, and drank a beer.
He was arrested for DUI, drag racing, resisting arrest (he refused to take his hands out of his pockets), and driving with an expired license.
Showing either ambivalence or more likely, pure fear, Justin’s subsequent mugshot showed him oddly smiling, and when he was finally read his charges in court later in the day, he appeared to be sad. However, he didn’t look too upset outside the courthouse waving.
But this pic clues us into his psyche at least a little more. What do you think about what Justin had to say, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
