Every day seems to be another step into the deep wacky for Justin Bieber. Today, the buzz in BieberWorld is a sophomoric picture of the Biebs groping a fan's breast during a meet-and-greet in Miami over the weekend.
Is it real or is it doctored? Who is the Belieber and did she consent? And, Earth-to-Justin, why? Is this considered good PR for your new acoustic album released today?
Possibly not, if it's true that the picture was initially posted on an official Bieber fan site, Bieberfever.com, and then removed.
Never mind, the picture was quickly snapped up by celeb sites, including E! Online, where you can see it even without the fan's face blurred. And by the way, she's grinning.
But E! was less than certain the picture reflected an unappetizing reality. Did the 18-year-old popstar really "get so grabby" or was it just a trick of the lens or a bad camera angle?
Meanwhile, someone on Twitter tweeting under the handle JocelynnBieber has claimed to be the fan in the picture and warned against interpreting it the wrong way with a lot of "HaHaHas." She said she snuck into the meeting with Bieber, has done it before and claimed to be thrilled, but not so much with the "rude" comments on Twitter about her pas de deux with Bieber.
"People can think what they want but I know what really happened & Justin does too so everyone else's opinions don't matter to me," she tweeted Sunday.
Bieber's latest, Believe Acoustic, is released today. Does he care to clarify what happened in Miami? Don't hold your breath; his rep is not returning calls.
