Uh-oh. Justin Bieber is getting into trouble again.
He had been on the road to reputation recovery, staging an epic comeback that would be solidified upon the release of his new album Nov. 13, but it looks like the Biebs is succumbing to old pressures again.
Justin was performing with Rae Sremmurd in New Zealand Thursday when an audience member recorded footage of him smoking weed and chugging from a bottle of Hennessey while onstage. The "What Do You Mean?" singer acknowledged his drunken antics on Instagram, where he shared a video of the wild performance and captioned it, "I ain't got no type #drunkjustin." He didn't acknowledge the joint he smoked.
This isn't Justin's first rodeo with marijuana. He has been spotted smoking the drug on multiple occasions before, and when he was arrested for DUI in Miami in 2014 he told police he had been using the drug and subsequently tested positive for it. Looking back, Justin recently revealed her would "stay away from Miami" because of the trouble he got into, but based on his New Zealand antics it seems not much has truly changed.
The 21-year-old pop star hasn't made a secret of his drinking. He posted a video of himself shotgunning a beer in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and claimed he lost the contest because he "didn't go to college." His attitude about alcohol has clearly changed since he was 18, when he told GQ that he never wanted to get wild.
"For me, it's just like, I like to be in control of myself," he told the magazine in 2012. "I mean, I've had a beer, like, before...But I never get out of control."
The interviewer later shared Justin's comment with his manager, Scooter Braun, who added, "He knows that I hold him to a high standard...He doesn't want to blow it."
While promoting his forthcoming album, Justin has talked nonstop about how far he's come and how he doesn't want to make any more mistakes. His hardcore partying ways are behind him, he told Elvis Duran at the end of August.
"I just want to be around people who I feel are supporting me, uplifting me, and making sure I'm the best version of myself because there are so many people in this industry who just want to keep seeing me fall," he explained.
Actions speak louder than words, Justin.
