The Tarnished Idol
His name is Justin Bieber. His initials are J. B. He is 19-years-old. He is from Canada and is well known there, throughout America, and many other parts of the world. He is the modern day heart-throb of so many young girls. When he entertains on stage, they lose control of their emotions. The young have made him an unbelievable millionaire at age 19. On 1-2: -14 he became a very rich and well known tarnished and fallen idol. His legacy has changed forever.
It all changed on 1-23-14 on a street in Florida, and it has nothing to do with his music. It is a sad story, but it has to be told. It severely damages his character and causes young girls to cry uncontrollably.
At 4 a. m. after partying and drinking Bieber decided to do some drag racing on residential street in a rented Lamborghini in Miami Beach Fla. Before long the police arrived and he was facing arrest. Bieber refused to cooperate and was handcuffed. Soon, he was inside the police station before the police chief, and the whole sordid story of these alleged misbehavior events unfolded.
It all began with the mug shot when he shocked everyone as he smiled broadly as the photo was taken. However, there was no nonsense before the police chief. He was cited for numerous infractions that included the followings: resisting arrest, DUI, no valid driver’s license, drag racing, screaming and using the F word at the police officer, and smoking marijuana. After the citations were read to him, he was assigned a jail cell.
Bieber’s descent into bad behavior started several months before the Miami Beach episode. He was photo’d smoking pot at a Newport Beach hotel. He threatened to beat up a London journalist. He spit in his neighbor’s face. He faced accusations of reckless driving in his gated community. He got caught on camera urinating in a restaurant mop bucket. According to the Miami Beach police report, he swore repeatedly at the officer who stopped him. He refused to cooperate with a pat-down. He later admitted he smoked marijuana and drank a couple of beers. After deputies searched his mansion for felony vandalism investigation, Bieber was allegedly accused of egging his neighbor’s house to the tune of $20,000 in damages. All of this reveals that the 19-years-old pop star is a badly tarnished idol.
Justin Bieber has brought all of his grief on himself. Fame and fortune were not kind to him. Fame and fortune at the age of 19 became a curse. He just could not handle them. How he is going to repair his life anyone’s guess. He must start by bringing God into his life and realize the Christian way of living is the only and the best way, and the sooner he does that, the better it will be for him.
