Justin’s security crew was reportedly with him at the party, but presumably the contact high from the marijuana smoke obscured their judgment because the photos are quite clear. That sure is Justin and that sure is a blunt in his adorable little hand. (I’m guessing those particular security handlers are looking for new jobs now.)
After the photos were made public by TMZ, Justin posted a message on Twitter … painfully devoid of any capital letters … that could be interpreted as a general apology to his fans.
“i see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and..thank u”
Meanwhile, little girls everywhere are tweeting wildly about their devastation over his behavior, and many seem desperate to blame his friend Lil’ Twist for being a bad influence on him. And maybe he is. But it’s important to remember that even though Justin famously looks like a 15-year old lesbian, he’s legally a grown-ass man and therefore 100% culpable for his own decisions.
In a possible effort to mitigate the photos’ damage, Justin took a break from his busy pot-smoking schedule to visit a young girl fighting leukemia while on a concert stop in Utah. While that was a genuinely nice gesture (and, to be fair, he does visit sick children quite often), it begs the question of what Justin’s going to do to ease the heartbreaks suffered by the throngs of disillusioned 12-year olds after learning that he may not be as squeaky clean as their parents thought.
Justin himself will likely be unscathed by the unfortunate death of the paparazzo who was killed last week while trying to get a photo of him, but the existence of TMZ’s photos does shed a new light on the claim made by that paparazzo that Justin had been in possession of marijuana prior to the accident.
On January 5th, Justin tweeted an inspirational message that will hopefully reinvigorate his fans and remind them that even though he’s a naughty pot-smoker, he’s still sweet kid. And, Justin, we understand that you’re going through a rough patch, what with the Selena break-up, but please try to be more discreet. Or at least go to Colorado.
“like i said…2013…new challenges. new doubters…Im ready. We are ready. see u all tomorrow and everyday after that”
