Beliebe it or not — how refreshing to see the spot light off of Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan for a change, while firmly lighting the smiling, drunken face of Justin Bieber.
The naughty 19-year-old was arrested in Florida for drag racing, resisting arrest, and driving under the influence all on the same night, according to a reports.
What an achievement.
Just hours before being arrested, the Biebs had a “heart to heart” with a model in a club, lamenting how hard it is to be in the limelight.
This begs two questions:
• How does a 19 year old get into a strip club where alcohol is served in the first place?
• How hard is it to be in the limelight?
Carmen Ortega, the model in question says, “He’s just doing what any teenager would do if they were a star with lots of money.”
Okay. Here are two more questions:
• Why, oh, why is his behavior acceptable? Because he is a star and has lots of money?
• Why is it okay for someone with lots of money to act like an a-- and get away with it?
Is this model a child psychologist licensed to give out advice?
Page Six in the Post had photos of Beiber, just hours after his DUI arrest, bar-hopping with dad. Okay, your son just got arrested for a drinking and driving, and you reward him by taking him into a bar. Wow, I wish that my dad would have been that understanding — don’t you?
Wait, here are some more questions:
• What’s wrong with the father?
• Why would a bar serve the underage kid again?
As a parent, it would seem that the senior Bieber would want to get his son out of that environment and get some help. Instead, he takes him to a bar so they can discuss the problem over a few beers.
Still more questions:
• What is it going to take for daddy dear to stop his teen son from this self-destructive path?
• What would the dad have done if little Bieber crashed his rented Lamborghini and ended his own life, or taken an innocent person’s life? Shed a tear and toast it with a brew?
Let’s face it, we all have feet of clay and we all make mistakes, but the type of mistakes these teen train wrecks make are life-threatening. Adding salt to the open gaping wound is the fact that the parents are just as dysfunctional and irresponsible, unable to lead their children in the right direction.
Not for Nuthin™, but studios should make it mandatory for all parents of up-and-coming teen idols to take a “good parenting skills,” just so that they can be a functioning parent when the camera is turned off and the teen-train-wreck is unleashed on the public.
