Justin Bieber's camp has weathered its share of PR issues since the pop star arrived in Brazil last week, including photos of him leaving what was reportedly a brothel in Rio de Janeiro. Now a Brazilian woman's video of the 19-year-old sleeping in bed has surfaced online.

The 15-second clip shows Bieber fast asleep before the woman turns the camera on herself, then blows a kiss in his direction. Nothing scandalous happens in the video, but that hasn't stopped the clip from already garnering over 4.8 million views online.

The video follows graffiti charges leveled at Bieber by Brazil's civil police force after he was caught spray-painting the wall of the abandoned Hotel Nacional. Bieber was given permission by the city to tag a nearby sports facility but, according to members of his entourage, the pop star changed the location in order to avoid his fans. However, local police stated that initial authorization did not mean Bieber could paint anywhere he wanted.

Along with the graffiti charge and the new video, Bieber's stay in Brazil has been marred by accusations of swearing at photographers and getting booted from one of Rio's best hotels. Such behavior isn't anything new, though: Bieber was recently sued by a photographer he allegedly assaulted, and he got into a shouting match with a cameraman during a stay in London and reportedly threatened a neighbor who complained about noise during a party.

Amid the tumult, Bieber's retained a sense of humor about his tabloid exploits: he poked fun at allegations that he was smoking pot while hosting Saturday Night Live and, more recently, received a good ol' fashioned spanking from Zach Galifianakis on an episode of Between Two Ferns.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
