Bieber gets off, Meyers leaves SNL and an actor dies

What is going on with the Biebs?
O….M…G it has defi nitely been the week of Justin Bieber, after getting busted for a DUI on Jan. 23 by being pulled over for drag racing, this week’s reports proves neither of the above were true. According to, his drug alcohol level was actually way below the legal level and read a .04. Only a few days later on the Jan. 29, he was charged with assault for his alleged attack on a limo driver in Toronto last December. The next day he was charged $5,000 for leaving the fi ve-bedroom house he rented smelling like nothing but pot. To top it all off after arriving in New Jersey for the Super Bowl in his private jet, he was immediately held by cops for questioning because they smelled marijuana. He was questioned for fi ve hours by customs because of his two current charges before being released. Oh boy. Poor Bieber defi nitely went through a lot this week. Hope it gets better next week.
