Justin Bieber is a great singer, but there’s one thing he’s definitely not good at: shotgunning a beer. As Gossip Cop reports, Bieber tested his beer drinking skills in Las Vegas this weekend against his friend, Sam Shahidi, the co-founder of the photo-sharing service, Shots. Bieber failed miserably as this video he posted on Instagram clearly shows.
“I didn’t go to college,” he said in the Instagram caption.
Shahidi finishes his beer in seconds while Justin struggles with his and he eventually gives up. Like a true champ, Beiber raises his hands in celebration because sometimes you have to be your own cheerleader.
Justin Bieber rose to fame at the tender age of fifteen when he released his debut EP, My World, in November, 2009. That meteoric rise to superstardom meant that Bieber had no time for college keg stands and other typical rites of passage involving beer.
Bieber did go through his rebellious phase, though. It was more of a criminal phase, to be honest, and he’s lucky he didn’t kill someone. In January, 2014, Justin was arrested for drunk driving and resisting arrest in Miami. According to the Daily Mail, Bieber was driving his yellow Lamborghini at 60mph, which is double the speed limit for the area he was in. He was allegedly racing another musician, Def Jam rapper Khalil Sharief, who was driving a Ferrari. Justin Bieber told officers that day that he had been smoking weed and taking anti-depressants with beer.
This wasn’t Bieber’s first run-in with the law, either. According to a timeline on Yahoo News, Justin Bieber has been getting into trouble with the police from as early as November, 2013. While he was in Rio de Janeiro, Bieber was charged with vandalism after he was found spray painting graffiti. Beiber was forced to pay a fine, but wasn’t arrested.
In January, 2014, his mansion was raided after reports that he and his crew were egging his neighbors’ houses. Beiber’s neighbors claimed that he and his friends threw 24 eggs at his neighbor’s home, causing $2,000 in damage. The “Where Are You Now” singer was fined $81,000 and sentenced to two years probation, community service for five days, and twelve weeks of anger management classes.
It seemed that the public had seen the end of the Justin Bieber music industry machine after his arrest for driving under the influence and resisting arrest. But he’s been staging a convincing redemption tour this year.
His new song, “What Do You Mean,” recently peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, a first for Justin Bieber that proves he’s still one of the most popular pop stars on the planet.
