Justin Bieber turned up with Rae Sremmurd at their New Zealand show on Wednesday night. TMZ asserts that the Biebs, who recently spoke to Complex about wanting people to see that he’s “being a man,” drank Hennessy out the bottle and smoked weed during the concert.
Rae Sremmurd tweeted at the Biebs earlier in the day before their performance, inviting him to “pipe up” with them.
@justinbieber lets pipe up in New Zealand

Justin supposedly drank the Hennessy on stage as a dare, and he later Instagrammed the incident, captioning it, “I ain’t got no type #drunkjustin.”
Before we all get carried away and start thinking that Justin has once again gone off the rails, let’s just keep in mind that he’s been drinking and smoking for years. Justin, 21, has made a conscious and very public effort to clean up his act, and as far as we know, he didn’t harm himself Wednesday night at the show.
Biebs has seen a lot of success from his comeback single “What Do You Mean?”, which became his first number one hit on the Billboard charts. That’s reason enough for a little celebration, but seeing as how marijuana is illegal in New Zealand, lighting up during the show probably wasn’t the smartest choice. Oof, J.
