Justin Bieber's Tour Bus Raided In Sweden, Weed Found On Floor
Justin Bieberís bad press tour picked up some more momentum yesterday after Swedish police raided the singerís tour bus and found a baggie of weed on board. Details are still extremely fuzzy at this point, but apparently, the Biebs and his entourage were inside the Globe Arena in Stockholm when officers descended on the tour bus in the parking garage. They allegedly found a small amount of weed, as well as a taser, but because they were just in the communal space, itís unclear who they actually belonged to.
According to TMZ, Swedish authorities have decided not to charge anyone nor impound the tour bus. Thatís obviously great news for everyone involved here. Unfortunately for the Biebs, the lack of formal charges certainly hasnít translated to a lack of headlines. This bust has been front page news around the world, and itíll no doubt lead many to once again ask if the pop star should find new people to hang out with.
Bieber is far from the first musician to have his or her tour bus full of banned substances, but the problem for him is that people hold him to a different standard. Believe it or not, his target demographic isnít the same as Kid Rockís or Motley Crueís or even Fiona Appleís. A good percentage of his wheelhouse overlaps with middle school and early high school, and those kids (and perhaps more importantly their parents) arenít exactly stoked about pot busts.
Fortunately for Bieberís monkey, he was abandoned prior to the search, and therefore, he didnít have to go through the shame and embarrassment of it.
