Remember when security guards for Prince Harry let random people snap photographs of the Royal while he was engaging in some naked shenanigans in Las Vegas? Well, the dudes who work for Justin Bieber just lost their ability to take the high ground. Photographs have emerged from a recent hotel party the Biebs attended, and they seem to show the pop star holding a big fat joint.

The pictures were obtained by TMZ yesterday, and they were reportedly taken on January 2nd, just one day after a photographer died while chasing down the singer’s car after he supposedly spotted Bieber smoking pot. In response to the publication, the eighteen-year-old took to Twitter last night to vaguely address the situation. Here’s a portion of what he had to say
”i see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and..thank u. #beliebers”

Here’s the thing. An overwhelming majority of teenagers try marijuana at least once. Most of them don’t become potheads or encounter any major difficulties. So, in that sense, there’s really no reason for everyone to reassess what type of teenager Bieber is. If anything, this makes him more of a normal, relatable guy. But given all the lucrative endorsements and his appeal to kids who are a whole lot younger, it’s easy to see why some do feel a little let down.

Here’s to hoping Bieber is a little more careful next time. If he wants to smoke pot now and again behind closed doors when he’s not performing, that’s his business, but doing so in front of a slew of random people with cameras is just bad business.
