Justin Bieber is making headlines as of late and it's not all thanks to his "Believe: Acoustic" album. Rumor has it that the 18-year old singer is experimenting with a few things here and there. The newest controversy that Bieber is involved in is getting copped with codeine. What is it and are the talks even true?
It was late last month when a photo of Bieber smoking a joint had emerged. TMZ had exclusively released the said photograph of which Chris Guerra, the paparazzi who had died, had so wanted to take a snapshot of. While Bieber and his representatives have not spoken directly about the matters, things continue on as if the "weed" incident had not occurred. The Canadian crooner had instead taken to Twitter to speak up on the issues.
"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," stated Justin which was followed up by, "like i said...2013...new challenges. new doubters...Im ready. We are ready. see u all tomorrow and everyday after that. #BELIEVEtour"
Now, it's another controversy that once again involves Bieber and some other kind of drug. Bieber had allegedly engaged in some risky behavior with friend, Lil' Twist and a bottle of "Sizzurp." For those who don't know, "sizzurp" or commonly called "purple drink" is simply a mixture of Codeine and Sprite. The effects are said to cause the same as smoking pot.
How did TMZ manage to get this one out again? All thanks to an old photograph of Bieber hanging out with his friends and smoking weed, it's clear on the photo what the "kids" were down to. On the table in the photo, "double cups" were present. In Codeine mixing, "double cupping" is a method to make a single cup "sweat" which would of course double the effect.
Once again, Bieber and his representatives are shooting down all the rumors. The 18-year old again took to Twitter to address the issues.
"Some of these rumors about me are getting a little out of control now. Don't believe the [bulls**t]. Gonna focus on the positive. I understand that rumors come with the territory, but I'm gonna stay me. Focus on the music. U wanna know what im about...it is all right there," stated Bieber.
Codeine or not, Bieber has been experimenting with a lot of things and hanging out with the wrong group of friends as of late.
