Justin Bieber appears to be regrouping amid new, alleged drug claims and celebrity support.
Following a busy few days during which the teen star taped an interview for his upcoming movie-docu Believe (“3 hours of everything”), “broke down” in a church service, turned heads at New York Fashion Week, partied with Sean Kingston, and returned to Canada before his father underwent surgery, the 19-year-old hit Twitter with some pace yesterday.
After talking up a Thursday midnight video drop for “Melodies” from his artist Madison Beer, and a forthcoming video alert for “Lolly” — his collaboration with singer-producer Maejor Ali and the rapper Juicy J — Bieber posted messages affirming his commitment to music and empire-building.
“I’m not a businessman I’m a business, man,” the Stratford, Ontario native declared.
Justin also teased previous reveals he will be releasing new, solo music from October, adding the months ahead will also see the debut of his Believe documentary which recently screened at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, more Believe tour dates, and unspecified goodies.
“And October thru New Years is gonna get interesting. #newmusic #believemovie #believetour #more,” the pop prince wrote.
Next, came a phrase often seen on his manager Scooter Braun’s Twitter timeline.
Stay on that grind

Bieber’s Twitter surge comes amid fresh claims of alleged drug-taking.
TMZ quotes a pilot who alleges the pop singer and a group of unnamed male friends arrived at an airport ahead of a private jet flight, in an SUV filled with alleged marijuana smoke and appeared to be high.
“I almost had to put on an oxygen mask,” the pilot told the website, then quipped,”It was like Cheech and Chong ‘Up In Smoke’.”
The unidentified pilot said Justin didn’t smoke anything once aboard. However, it’s claimed the singer’s pals smoked blunt cigars during the alleged coast to coast transit, which is apparently legal on private flights.
The pilot claims Justin was befuddled during the journey and when authorizing a credit card bill.
“‘Huh, what? Who am I signing this for?'” the pilot claims he recalls the singer asking.
Elsewhere, the “Beauty and a Beat” star has been defended by The Wanted’s Tom Parker.
Notwithstanding the teen idol’s eventful 2013, Parker — who shares manager Braun with Bieber — insists the Canadian is just being a typical teenager.
“Anything he does away from his squeaky clean image is seen as him being a bad lad, but he’s just doing things that a normal 19-year-old would do,” he told The Huffington Post UK. “I’ve done a lot worse, but because I’m a lot older and wasn’t in the public eye at that age, no-one knows or cares.”
Parker noted Bieber is growing into a “handsome young chap,” before adding: “He’s just maturing and I kind of like how he’s not that kid that sang ‘Baby’ anymore.”
It would seem Justin agrees with that last observation.
“I’m not a businessman I’m a business, man.”
