Justin Bieber gets March trial date in Miami DUI case

A trial date has been set for Justin Bieber in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and driving with an invalid license.

A Miami-Dade County judge set a trial for the three misdemeanors for March 3. Bieber’s attorneys have already filed a written plea of not guilty. Initial trial dates are often delayed.

The 19-year-old pop star was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two exotic sports cars driven by Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Sharieff was also arrested on a DUI charge.

Breath tests showed Bieber’s blood alcohol content below the .02 threshold for underage drivers. But police say a toxicology test detected the presence of marijuana and Xanax in his system.

Report: Justin Bieber had pot, Xanax in system at arrest

A preliminary toxicology report shows that Justin Bieber tested positive for marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax after his arrest last week in South Florida.

The report released Thursday also shows no presence of other illicit drugs in Bieber’s system, such as cocaine or oxycodone. The 19-year-old pop star was arrested last week on Miami Beach on charges of DUI, resisting arrest, and having an expired driver’s license.

Bieber has pleaded not guilty but told police after his arrest last week that he had been smoking marijuana and took a prescription drug.

A previous police report found that breath tests placed Bieber’s blood-alcohol content below the .02 level considered intoxicated for under-21 drivers. Bieber was stopped after police suspected he and another driver were drag racing exotic sports cars.

Bieber’s legal troubles don’t stop there: He was charged with assault in Toronto on Wednesday for allegedly playing a part in the attack of a limo driver.

Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper drop 'Confident' video

There’s nothing a woman walking around alone at night likes more than being followed intently by a strange man — Justin Bieber knows that much.

So in the new video for his Chance the Rapper collaboration “Confidence,” the not-yet-deported pop singer does just that to his video vixen, creeping up behind her as she strolls around in the darkness.

But don’t worry, they eventually make it to some weird underground Fast and Furious party and end up sharing a kiss, so it worked! Watch the new “Confidence” video below:


Justin Bieber pleads not guilty in DUI arrest

UPDATE: Justin Bieber legal issues continue in Toronto; singer turns himself in on assault charge later in the day on January 29, 2014.

ORIGINAL POST: Justin Bieber has pleaded not guilty to charges of DUI, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license in Florida.

Court records show that Bieber’s attorney filed the written plea Wednesday in Miami-Dade County. Bieber already has an arraignment set for Feb. 14, but Florida law doesn’t require the 19-year-old pop star to be present.

Defense attorney Mark Shapiro says a decision on whether Bieber will attend has not been made.

Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested last week in Miami Beach during what police described as an illegal street drag race between a Lamborghini and a Ferrari. Neither has been charged with drag racing.

Police say Bieber cursed at an officer and admitted to smoking marijuana, drinking, and taking a prescription medication.

'Deport Justin Bieber' petition reaches 100,000+ signatures, will merit White House response

Do you belieb that one of Canada’s biggest exports could be deported as a result of his recent Miami arrest?

The possibility is slim. Nevertheless, less than a week after it was first posted to the government’s “We the People” platform, over 100,000 Americans have signed a petition asking the Obama administration to revoke Bieber’s green card. (Why? Because “he is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth.”) And according to the site’s terms of participation, this means that the White House must now respond to the petition “in a timely fashion.”

Just don’t expect that response to come soon — or to affirm that Bieber really will be kicked off our amber waves of grain.


Justin Bieber exits jail after DUI arrest

A sober-looking Justin Bieber was released from jail Thursday following his arrest on charges of driving under the influence, driving with an expired license, and resisting arrest. Police say they stopped the 19-year-old pop star while he was drag-racing down a Miami Beach street before dawn.

Bieber was arrested after police said they saw him heading down a residential street in Miami Beach in a yellow Lamborghini at twice the speed limit. Officers say he had an expired license, was initially not cooperative when he was pulled over, and smelled of alcohol.

Police say Bieber later admitted that he had been drinking, smoking marijuana, and taking prescription medication. R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff was arrested in the same incident. He is charged with driving under the influence. Police said Khalil was driving a Ferrari.

Bieber and Khalil, wearing bright red jail fatigues, made their initial court appearance via a video link from jail. They remained silent while defense attorney Roy Black negotiated bond. Bieber’s bond was set at $2,500. Khalil’s bond was set at $1,000.

Black, a high-profile lawyer whose clients have included Rush Limbaugh and William Kennedy Smith, said he thought the case would proceed “hopefully as any other case would” in light of Bieber’s celebrity status.

Why we need Justin Bieber: A critic's opinion

How does the existence of Justin Bieber—who was just arrested for drag racing under the influence on a blocked-off street in Miami—benefit the world? We all know why Beyoncé matters: She wakes up embodying female “perfection,” then subversively toys with that very notion. (Also, she made “***Flawless.”) It’s obvious what we need for Bruno Mars for: He’s music’s utility player, a sensualist built for the Superbowl halftime. (And he made “Gorilla.”)

But for some time now, Bieber has hardly even fulfilled the pop purpose that so many dismissed him for in the first place: Giving shape to teen girl fantasies. (And making songs like “Favorite Girl.”) Instead, he’s been ordering up $75,000 in ones at Miami nudie bars, pissing his name into the snow in Colorado, and finally getting arrested for the first time this morning. And that’s not even getting into last year’s “scandals,” or the recent egging-related police raid on his house.

Of course, you have to wonder whether a society that gets feverish over a roadside leak and hates what teen girls love should be determining anyone’s worth. JB has obviously been downgraded: His movie Justin Bieber’s Believe bombed over Christmas, and Journals, the December compilation of all his Music Mondays singles, sank with even less notice. Beyoncé did surprise-release her album a week before, but as much oxygen as she sucked up, Bieber’s brand was already wheezing. Rather than making the leap to a Justin Timber-like adulthood, with a 20/20 Experience-style ascension to gilded detachment glimmering in the distance, the little man seemed to have curdled into King Joffrey with drop-crotch pants and a shadow of a mustache.

Bon Jovi has year's top-grossing global tour

Bon Jovi not only has the year’s top tour, but the rock band has achieved a career high.

The New Jersey-based act’s worldwide tour grossed $259.5 million this year, topping Pollstar’s annual top 20 list and setting a record for the band itself.

Beyoncé is second with $188.6 million. She ended her tour last week in Brooklyn. Pink, Justin Bieber, and Bruce Springsteen round out the top five.

The global concert business scored a record year with the top 20 tours, earning $2.43 billion in primary ticket sales. It generated $1.96 billion last year.

The top 20 list also included Taylor Swift, Elton John, Rihanna, Depeche Mode and One Direction. The Rolling Stones’ comeback tour ranked twelfth, a notch under Paul McCartney.

Justin Bieber tells radio station 'I'm retiring;' Should we beliebe it?

But who’s going to care for his pet monkey, leave a path of destruction in South American territories, and single-handedly fuel the easily-rippable t-shirt economy?

Justin Beiber told a Los Angeles radio station that he’s quitting the music business on Wednesday.

“I’m actually, uh, retiring, man,” the 19-year-old pop singer told Power 106 FM’s radio show “Big Boy’s Neighborhood.”I think I’m probably gonna quit music,” he added in a suspiciously raspy voice with conveniently sunglass-shieded eyes.

But don’t let Bieber’s announcement fool you too fast. We know he has somewhat of a sense of humor when he allowed Zack Galifianakis to lampoon his childish ways on Between Two Ferns in September. And let’s not forgot how he Instagrammed a fake Batman Vs. Superman script in the same month.

TMZ, and the New York Daily News are reporting that his statements are untrue.

What do you guys think? Genuine admission or a timely ruse before his Dec. 23 album release of Complete My Journals? Sound off in the comments.

Watch a clip of Bieber on Power 106 FM below:

Justin Bieber announces compilation album, drops Chance the Rapper collab

So this is what everything was leading up to: Justin Bieber has announced that he’ll be releasing a new compilation album that’ll include all the releases from his weekly #MusicMondays series, as well as five brand new tracks.

Titled Journals, the collection will be released Dec. 16 and available only temporarily on iTunes, Billboard reports. The digital package will also include some music videos and a trailer for his upcoming Believe movie, which is the main big thing he’s been promoting.

But Journals will only be on sale until Jan. 2 — after that, Christmas will be long gone and you’ll have to collect all the individual songs yourself.

Take a look below to see the tracklist — which includes new songs that feature Big Sean, Diplo, Lil Wayne, and more  — and, since it’s Monday, scroll to the bottom for Bieber’s latest #MusicMonday release, “Confident” feat. Chance the Rapper.
