Justin Beiber flashing a heavy metal sign

Youtube success story and teen girl heartthrob, Justin Bieber, will be performing at the New Orleans Arena on 1/15. The little "uber-kid: has been involved in a fair amount of non-music drama, since his discovery in 2007, to rival even the most jaded of hard-partying rock musicians. One has to ask, will his visit to the "Big Easy" add yet another headline to his already impressive resume of antics?
Let's take a look at some of the mayhem the "Bieb" has been involved in:: a paparazzi photographer killed while pursuing Bieber’s white Ferrari (Bieber was not in it); caught on video throwing up onstage.
He was hit with a paternity suit, which was dropped and was sued for claims that he’s liable for hearing loss a fan incurred at one of his concerts. Plus the most recent scandal, photos of young Justin allegedly smoking marijuana.. My word, a teenaged pop idol in the practice of smoking cannabis? Shocker!!! What ever will his fans think of this behaviour???
Actually, who cares what he does? He's 18, is a "star" for the most part and if he pushes the envelope too much, we can always deport him!! (Oh yeah, about that - -he's Canadian. In case you didn't know.)
Bieber’s adulthood was announced in July 2012, via his second Rolling Stone cover (emblazoned with the text “Hot, Ready, Legal") He’ll also be releasing his album “Believe” this year. Early reviews of it have critics seeming to agree that the young star is transitioning nicely into musical adulthood - exploring R&B leanings with a hint of grown-up sauciness on songs like the lead single “Boyfriend.” (Check it out below)
