Just the day after a paparazzo was run over photographing Bieber’s friend Lil Twist in Justin’s Ferrari, the two are relaxed and easy and smoking it up. It seems the photographers have the last laugh, for whoever photographed him smoking a blunt, amidst a party of revelers doing likewise, leaked it to the media. Just the day before Justin had said:
“Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to pretext the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves.”
It seems he himself didn’t experience it as a tragedy, but perhaps as an opportunity. TMZ, who is the source of this photo, says that it is ironic that sources close to Bieber so strongly insisted the paparazzo lied when he claimed Justin and Lil Twist were smoking weed before the accident.
TMZ also mentioned something about a girl — not Selena — crashing in his hotel room, so clearly the world is not yet clear for celebrity nonchalance. “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
The series of photos of Justin smoking blunts on January 2nd seem to be the result of lax vigilance, perhaps even not caring at all.
