Relax everyone, Justin Bieber isn’t going to rehab

Justin Bieber

Recently, Justin Bieber has been acting especially diva-ish, which I blame entirely on the fact that he was plucked from obscurity at a young age and given enough money and yes-men to ensure he would never have to be held accountable for anything he does. Also the fact that he had a swag coach, which is just the douchiest thing I have ever heard. Anyway, there was a rumor going around that Justin’s alleged newfound appreciation for weed and sizzurp was getting out of control and his team was considering sending him to rehab, but according to Gossip Cop, it’s not going to happen.

“On the heels of his heartbreaking Grammy snub and breakup from Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber’s reckless partying has his loved ones scared to death and begging him to enter rehab!” begins a breathless piece from Star. According to the mag, Bieber has been “frequently smoking marijuana, drinking the street cocktail ‘sizzurp,’ driving recklessly and partying to all hours of the night.” If this story sounds a bit familiar, that’s because the tab’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, ran virtually the same report last month. It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now.

To everyone who think that Justin is out of control: Relax, that’s just what teenagers do. The honest truth is that teenagers are basically self-involved, egotistical little a-holes. Believe me, I lived with three of them, and I can say with total clarity that weed and douchiness are as much a part of being a teenager as acne and impotent, petulant rage.
