Justin Bieber is apologizing for a Lindsay Lohan diss.
The Biebs has been having a difficult time in the press lately, having the "worst birthday ever," fainting during a concert in London, cancelling a concert in Portugal, and nearly attacking a photographer. He's also had to deal with rumors that he was going to rehab and that his family was "disappointed in him."
In an Instagram rant, Justin talked about his own success at such a young age, "being 19 with 5 number one albums." He then went on to talk about what a good person he was, and how he didn't deserve all the negative press.
Justin then asked the press to stop comparing him to troubled former child star, Lindsay Lohan. "And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;)" (He, of course, was referring to the fact that he was more successful and made way more money than LiLo last year.)
A few minutes later, he removed the bit about Lindsay. As he told omg!, "My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say. I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."
LiLo is not the only celeb that the Biebs has dissed. Who else has been on the receiving end of a dig from Justin?
It appears that the Biebs has become a persona non grata in the Philippines after dissing the famed boxer.
In December 2012, Justin photoshopped some Instagram pictures of the boxer from his fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. In one picture, the late Michael Jackson (dressed in his "Smooth Criminal" costume) is hovering over an unconscious Manny in the boxing ring, asking "Manny are you ok, are you ok Manny?"
In another photo, "The Lion King's" Simba is hovering over a passed out Manny, with the caption "Dad, wake up."
Politicians in the Philippines were none too pleased with what they deemed as "distasteful comments." In a statement from several congressmen, "Mr. Bieber should have known that the Hon. Pacquiao has reached his stature as such as a result of sheer hard work, determination and firm belief in God, and despite such stature best exemplifies humility and grace even in defeat,"
Last summer, in an interview with UK's Rollercoaster magazine, the Biebs took a dig at the prince's thinning hairline. "I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?"
In a February 2011 interview with Chelsea Handler, Justin commented on the meat dress that Gaga wore to the VMAs and the egg she arrived in at the Grammy Awards.
Regarding the meat dress, Justin commented, "She went for a hug, and I was like, 'Ooohhh, let's just hold up on that, you have meat on you."
Asked if he liked the meat dress or the egg better,he replied, "I thought both were weird. People say it's artistic and stuff. I'm just like, 'You're an egg.'"
Back in 2010, when asked about the possibility of working with Mariah, he answered, "I don't love her new music, it's not the same [as her old stuff]. It's like Michael Jordan coming back out to play in the NBA. She is past her best." Ouch!
