Justin Bieber

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about celebrities, it’s that the vast majority of them tend to develop an all-encompassing fear of phones. Or at least the dumb, sh!tty ones do anyway. So yeah, if you want to be famous, don’t get too attached to your Android or whatever. Anyway, Justin Bieber‘s phone fear kicked into overdrive the other day, as he allegedly tried stole a woman’s phone and then proceeded to yell at her and her daughter. Why? Because he thought she was talking pictures of him, and he’s a hardcore gangsta. Stratford represent! TMZ reports …

The woman says Justin and his crew got into an altercation with some guys at the batting cage when J.B. noticed she was going for her cellphone to take pictures. She says Justin demanded to see her phone so he could erase any photos. She says she refused to fork over the phone so he then went into her purse and grabbed it. The woman says she began wrestling with Bieber, trying to get her phone back. She says he ripped it out of her hands but couldn’t accomplish his mission because the phone was locked. We reached out to Bieber’s camp before posting this story … so far, no word back. She says Justin gave her the phone back and demanded that she unlock it to see if she took photos. She obliged and showed Justin she had taken none. She says she told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi, and Justin screamed, “You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here.” Her daughter started crying.

What’s hysterical about Justin’s little image revamp is that, no matter how hard he tries, he’ll never be able to go from squeaky-clean teen idol to legitimate bad boy. No one is ever going to take him seriously as some sort of street certified gangsta, and the only people who still buy his music are the legion of teenage girls who don’t know any better. He’s stuck in bubble gum pop purgatory, and no amount of fake skateboard tricks or phone stealing is going to pull him out.
