Justin Biebers handlers fear the pop star is spiralling out of control.
RadarOnline.com reports that Scooter Braun, the 19-year-old Canadian heartthrobs manager, is mulling sent Bieber to rehab for a short, sharp visit. The gossip website says Braun is concerned by the Baby singers accelerated use of alcohol and marijuana.
A source told Radar: Justin is hanging out with the wrong people. Its been one incident after another with him ... Scooter wants him to go to rehab to get his act together.
Biebers past three months have featured one faux pas after another, not least showing up late for his own concerts. In Holland, he suggested Holocaust heroine Anne Frank would have been a Belieber and was widely mocked for it. Last week Kid Rock predicted the troubled singer would end up like one-hit wonder Vanilla Ice.
Meanwhile, X-Factor crator Simon Cowell addressed the Bieber rehab rumours. Cowell said more than anything, Bieber needs a break.
If I ever thought one of our artists was being overworked or over-promoted, you just have to say to them, You made enough money, just take a year off. You have to be sensible about it, Cowell told Fox News.
Is that drug/alcohol/sex/eating disorder rehab or career rehab?
“Biebers past three months have featured one faux pas after another”
Nothing better for slipping popularity numbers than to go into “rehab”. It’s just another career move for these people.
..never to return?
PLEASE say it’s “never to return”...
The entertainment industry would just manufacture another teen heartthrob, just like they do with boy bands. They’re like bad weather, it comes and goes but is always with us.
this kids a spoiled little brat and will end up dead long before old age kicks in,Oh well.
what a putz. He’s starting to look like vanilla ice in his heyday.So this is all about “cred” right? With all the stuff to report on I am surprised how often I see his name.
Anyone he hangs around with are the wrong people.
HE is one of the wrong people.
Throw in gnawing dissatisfaction with the pay and disgust with management hostility and abuse... VOILA... the guy will GROW UP!!
How on earth is this girly boy a heartthrob? He looks like a dyke and dresses like a douchebag slob.
He’ll return when he comes out of the closet and will be an even bigger hit amongst our homophile society.
...the 19-year-old Canadian heartthrob...
There, fixed that for all of the queers that oggle his feminine demeanor.
This is to be expected when you give a 17 year old $100 million dollars.
I kind of like Vanilla Ice now. And that means I will be deep into my eighties before I have to consider liking Bieber.
That tendency goes way back. Elvis was a rare exception. In general, tween girls are not ready for a "bad boy" or a manly man. They want to chase a boy, but they want the boy to be "safe". Leif Garrett, David Cassidy, Andy Gibb, Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber -- girls were not afraid that these fellows would take unfair advantage of them.
And, yeah, as someone already pointed out, the queers REALLY like these teen idols just the way they are.
ping to your interests...
...and don’t forget Bobby Sherman!
I almost mentioned him!! Didn’t want to date myself too much.
He played himself in a recent Adam Sandler film. He was actually really funny! He had the best lines in the movie.
Rehab at 19? Doesn’t look good for the over/under on my “Gone Before 30” death pool.
Course I was wrong about Brittney Spears.
Fame kills the stupid.
Isn’t it illegal to possess alcohol if your under 21?
Isn’t it illegal to smoke/possess pot?
If he played his cards right, he'd never have to work another day in his life. Or he can surround himself with a bunch of jobless thugs helping him burn through his fortune on mansions and Ferraris, designer clothes and jewelry and he most certainly will have to find work again.
The transition from teen heartthrob to adult stardom is a difficult one. For every Justin Timberlake there's a hundred others who's fame has faded away and who's money vanished. The entertainment industry chews these kids up and spits 'em out. In a few years, Bieber will be "long in the tooth" at 22-23 years old and there will be some other fresh-faced teen waiting in the wings to take his place.
Isnt it illegal to smoke/possess pot?
You think this has ever stopped teens from drinking and smoking weed? It doesn't today and it didn't 30 years ago when me and my friends were doing the same thing (albeit with far less money than Beiber has).
If you wake up in the morning and the first person you run into is an asshole and every other person you meet is an asshole....you're the asshole!!!!! - Raylan Givens-
Best line of the day!!! Awesome!!!
Now this is nothing new. Back when I was growing up, the girls were screaming their lungs out for girly boys like Leif Garrett. Who ironically had his own issues and today looks like he was dragged across 30 miles of bad road on his face. (Google up his picture and see for yourself.)
Now many here seem to take a delight in the troubles of this Justin Beieber. Remember though that he is just a boy who has been spoiled rotten. If I was a teen star at 16 and had the entire female world throwing themselves at me, the success would go to my head as well and I'd get to thinking I was somebody quite special and that the rest of the world existed to serve my every want and desire.
Why would our society put such young vulnerable people in such a position? This kid should be in a regular school living a regular life. OK, maybe he's 19 now and legally an adult. But this teen celebrity nonsense started several years ago when he was but a child, did it not?
With so much material to choose from, he should be able to find the mirror that shows him and his future.
True, but Bieber makes Leif Garrett, Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy, even Donny Osmond look like the Marlboro Men in comparison.
and he still sucks.
“Justin Biebers handlers fear the pop star is spiralling out of control. “
We won’t know it’s really bad until he starts doing covers of Amy Winehouse tunes.
Not the only thing I like but it does ROCK!!!
