Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber

Look, I’m going to level with you here: The world is still freaking out that the spoiled, entitled little popstar did something that a spoiled, entitled little popstar absolutely would do. This means that we’re going to be wading through a lot of stories about how everyone around Justin Bieber is trying to shift the blame, or people are lashing out at him, or yadda yadda yadda. My point is, I’m going to try and stagger them as much as we possibly can, but we make no promises. Anyway, let’s start off today’s barrage of Bieber posts with piece on how Bieber’s team is trying to spin it so that Selena Gomez was a bad influence on him this whole time. RadarOnline reports …

“Justin also does really stupid stuff to try and impress Selena. Frustratingly for his advisors, he gets so much negative press, but Selena never does. If Justin were to cut off all communication with Selena, he would be in a much better place.” Said another insider, “Most of Justin’s team think she has generally positive influence on him because she has her act together… (but) he does act out a lot more often than (not) when he deals with her.”

So basically, this was all Selena’s fault for making Justin love her so much. Really? That’s how you want to spin this? Not that you guys let your ward off the leash and instilled in him the idea that he can do whatever he wants because you’ll pay the bill? No, let’s just blame the woman who has never found herself in seriously legal trouble in her entire life, I’m sure she’s a real troublemaker.
