Justin Bieber is sorry for flipping off the paparazzi. He tweeted about the event as well as the fact that both he and his fans reached his birthday charity goals. The teen heartthrob is apparently overwhelmed by the media frenzy surrounding his relationship with Selena Gomez.
Birthday boy Justin Bieber and Gomez were celebrating his 17th birthday with a romantic dinner at MaggianoÂ’s on Wednesday evening when they were swarmed by the paparazzi. This made the newly minted 17-year-old angry. He expressed his displeasure by flipping the bird to all the photogs.
This is very un-Justin Bieber-like behavior especially considering he had involved fans so heavily in his birthday by urging them to donate to the Water Foundation in honor of his birthday. The good boy normally does not go around flipping off the paparazzi. Perhaps the recent haircut has changed more than just his look?
Later, the singer realized his bad behavior and took to Twitter to rectify his mistake. He tweeted, "Had a great bday and at the end of the night we got surrounded by paps and i reacted in a way i know better. im sorry."Â He alsoÂ tweeted, "It's not always easy but i know better than to react in anger. Life has it's ups and downs but u guys r always there 4 me. i will make my mistakes but i promise 2 continue 2 grow with u and try 2 do." At least he's not being like @charliesheen.
Bieber also tweeted the good news about he and fans surpassing his birthday goal for the Water Foundation, which provides clean water to those in need. He wrote, "On a better note i need to say THANK U to my fans. we raised over 40k for @charitywater for my bday. we together #madeachange."
That is good news for the charity and fans. Bieber's birthday goal was $17,000, and so far fans have donated $44,000 and counting.
Happy birthday to Justin Bieber. It is sad that he can't have a regular relationship with Selena Gomez without such a hubbub surrounding him. Hopefully flipping off the paparazzi isn't the beginning of worse behavior from the normally nice teen. It is amazing that he and his fans were able to put his birthday to good use with the Water Foundation.
