Justin Bieber has been acting out a lot lately. Whether because of the seemingly ever-changing status of his relationship with Selena Gomez or just the everyday stress of being the most famous pop star on earth, last week was a rough one for the Teen Dream. And this one doesn't look like it will be any better. It definitely started off on the wrong foot on November 19 when JB actually caused a Los Angeles traffic jam. And alas, it wasn't because the street was crowded with hordes of screaming beliebers. No, the Biebs stopped traffic because he got into an altercation with his nemeses, the paparazzi. Perhaps even worse, the whole thing was caught on video.
As you can see on the video below, Justin got tired of being stalked by the paps so he decided to stop and confront them. On the tape, the paps' cars are clearly visible on both sides of Biebs' vehicle, and he's clearly upset. At one point, one of the paparazzi criticizes his driving and begs him to slow down.
"You're driving pretty crazy, bro...,' says the paparazzo. "I think you should slow down a little, don't you think?"
"I think you guys should probably stop following me," Justin replies.
Actually, the pap offered Justin very good advice. Justin has been cited and ticketed for speeding many times. And rumor had it that one of the problems between JB and Selena Gomez was his reckless driving.
Anyhow, Biebs and the pap exchange words for a while. At one point, Justin asks the man what his parents think of his occupation. The pap replies that his parents are very proud of him.
"Oh, they're very proud?" counters Justin. "They're proud you stop people for a living? You stop people for a living."
At one point, Justin tells the pap, point-blank, to his face: "I don't like you."
After a few minutes of this childish banter, horns begin to honk as cars line up behind the three stopped vehicles. A woman behind them yells that they need to move. Other motorists join in, and finally Justin speeds off.
Oh well, you can watch the mini-drama on the video below. Was Justin Bieber right to confront the paparazzi? Or should he have immediately gone on his way?
