Justin Bieber, James Dean

Umm…rebel without a cause?

Justin Bieber gave his best James Dean impression on Instagram Saturday, posting a black and white shot of himself in a white t-shirt with a cigarette dangling from his mouth and a gold watch on his wrist.

"This is James Dean inspired. Don't ask me if I smoke ciggys cuz I don't," he captioned the snap.

The snap mimics one of the late movie star's iconic photos, in which Dean poses in a white T-shirt as well, with his hair similar to that of Bieber's Instagram snap, with a cigarette hanging from his lips in the 1955 film Rebel Without a Cause.

While you can see several of the Biebs' tattoos in the Dean-inspired snap, an Instagram page devoted to street artist Banksy recently showed off the pop star's latest ink, which looks similar to the artist's famed "Ballon Girl" piece.

"Controversial @justinbieber #banksy," the Instagram shot was captioned.

The tattoo itself actually stirred up a bit of controversy, considering some Banksy fans didn't like the portrayal of the piece on Bieber's arm. So far though, the UK-based painter has yet to give his take on the body art.
