As TMZ points out about the above photo of Justin Bieber they just obtained, there are a lot of questions to be asked about this situation. Where was this photo taken? Was it in the U.S., where the Beebs is too young to drink beer? Or was it in Canada, where the drinking age is 18? When was it taken? One source told the gossip site that it was last June in Alabama, so illegal all around. But wait. Is Justin even playing beer pong here? Or is he merely coaching his friend on the proper trajectory in which to throw the ball into his opponent’s Solo cup? We know his mad basketball skills would come in handy for such a game. Is that even beer in those cups? It could totally be apple cider, you know.
We have one more question — is it such a big deal? We’re frankly kind of relieved to see any moments in which Justin is relaxing and hanging out like a regular kid. We know his mom and Scooter Braun are keeping a super close eye on him to make sure he doesn’t run into the dangers of being a child star. But frankly we worry that if they kept such a close eye on him that he didn’t get to do some totally immature things like play beer pong with a bunch of friends in someone’s crappy basement, he’d one day break away from their control and do something worse. So just relax, world. This is still a kid who gets sick onstage from having spaghetti and milk, not a drug binge.
