Justin Bieber has apologized to Bill Clinton after footage surfaced showing the pop star spraying a liquid at a photo of the former president, shouting, “Fuck Bill Clinton.” After speaking with him over the phone, Bieber thanked Clinton on Twitter for taking the time time to talk to him, adding, “Your words meant alot. #greatguy.”
The Clinton diss, however, closed out a 45-second clip obtained by TMZ that caught Bieber urinating into a mop bucket in the kitchen of a nightclub. The video was reportedly shot in New York City earlier this year, and you can hear members of Bieber’s entourage laughing in the background and referring to themselves as “the wild kidz.”
Bieber ostensibly addressed that incident as well in two apologetic tweets, writing, “In life u will make mistakes and people will try and tear u down . . . but u gotta stay positive. Stay strong . . . and learn to be better . . . and . . . always live to serve others and The Lord. #growingeveryday.”
The 19-year-old pop star is still in the middle of the American leg of his Believe world tour, which has been a rather bizarre trek: Over the past few months, Bieber has gotten in fights with paparazzi, had his pet monkey quarantined in Germany, posited that Anne Frank would’ve been a Belieber and was reportedly caught by Swedish police with drugs and a stun gun on his tour bus. Bieber is expected to release new music by the end of this year.
