Have you seen the photo of Justin Bieber drinking a beer? The 19-year-old pop star is on tour in South Africa and posted a pic of himself, tongue out, hat backwards, enjoying a cold one while on safari with a buddy. Although the little guy isn't yet 21, he's clearly got a taste for the fizzy adult beverage.
And since the legal drinking age is 18 in South Africa, Bieber's well within his right to toss back a brewski or dozen while visiting Johannesburg. It looks like he was having a good time, too -- Justin also shared photos of elephants with hashtags "in the wild" and "God is good." Glad to see the pop star's at least soaking in some culture as he soaks in the booze.
This isn't the first time Bieber's imbibed. I'd wager my house that he was drinking alcohol out of that red Solo cup in the "Call Me Maybe" lip sync video. (House party of teens + Solo cups = drinky drinky.) Plus, he's admitted before that he's had a drink in the past, but has maintained he's never gotten "out of control."
Just a few weeks ago, it seemed like J.B. was unravelling. From the gas-masked outing in London to his Anne Frank message to the allegations of pot use, there wasn't a moment he wasn't accidentally or intentionally stirring controversy. Now, he's (somewhat) at it again with this beer selfie.
Even though he's not breaking any laws, he might be breaking some young fans' hearts. Is the role model they once loved turning into the dreaded teenager everyone hates?
Cheers, Justin. Cheers.
