It’s a hot Internet rumor: Justin Bieber arrested! Apparently web searchers are trying to find out the truth: Was Bieber really arrested? As it turns out, one report about Bieber being arrested stated that the rumor was apparently started by a series of tweets on Twitter, the massive social networking site which offers Cliff Notes versions of breaking news and events. Chase Crawford, star of Gossip Girl, really was arrested for possession of marijuana and it is possible that somehow the two got conjoined in a weird, Internet symbiotic relationship thing. Some of the information in several reports show a conglomeration of the Chase Crawford arrest swirling around with news of Justin Bieber to apparently produce the gem: Justin Bieber arrested! Gotta love the Internet and all of its accuracy.
The rumor was that Justin Bieber was arrested in Dallas for breaking curfew. One report stated that Bieber might have snuck out of his parent’s house to roam around with friends on his bicycle (ooohhhh – save us from the Bieber Bikers!). Another report stated that Bieber was arrested after being told by police to leave the parking lot of a local pub and Justin dropped the F-bomb on the cops – showing his hostility. The seemingly clean cut teenaged Bieber seems to be part of just one of those online rumors that catches fire and burns through Google, but is rumor of his arrest likely to make fans turn away or pique their interest?
Ladies, we all know the truth, we can’t help it. We all love a little bit of bad boy in a guy, and is it possible that the Donny Osmond-like Justin Bieber is trying to garner a little bit of a harder edge to grab some more attention? Perhaps he watched Rebel Without a Cause, took one look at James Dean’s character and said “Yeah, I could do that.” After all, the ladies seem to be drawn to a bad boy like flies to fruitcake, or maybe possum to roadkill? Either way, we can’t help it – a sneer and a flipping the bird at society seems to intrigue the female and perhaps Justin Bieber’s arrest rumors could help him seem less. . .harmless.
When I was a teenager, the bad boys were Kiefer Sutherland and Johnny Depp and of course they were adored. I still love those guys – but guess what, now that I’m in my thirties, Kiefer’s bad boy incidents of getting arrested aren’t as attractive. Johnny’s adoration of his family is much more attractive now. Perhaps Justin Bieber needs to understand that being arrested – whether it was just an Internet rumor or it really happened – doesn’t make you more attractive. Take my advice: Listen to your parents, obey your curfew, don’t get arrested. You want fans to love you for who you really are – don’t be a foul-mouthed idiot who causes trouble everywhere. Instead, young Bieber – I hope you’ll be a respectful young man who doesn’t act like an idiot and actually shows self-control. Yeah, I know that’s a lot to ask, but you can do it. Well, you should be able to do it – self-control really isn’t all that hard.
