In the space of his short 18 years, Justin Bieber has reached the pique of his fame, had a fall from grace and is now, apparently, a reformed sinner?

We’re not sure how that works, but after the “weed photo incident” in which pictures of Justin, holding what looks suspiciously like a joint, were leaked by TMZ, the star had this to say via Twitter: “everyday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up.” Eat your heart out, T. S. Elliot, that there is true poetry.

The 18-year-old singer really does need the fresh start though, as he’s been making gossip headlines quite a lot recently – firstly with his most recent breakup with fellow teen pop sensation Selena Gomez, then with an accident, involving his Ferarri, in which a paparazzo was killed (JB wasn’t behind the wheel at the time) and now, with this latest “scandal”. Overall, Justin has been making quite the splash recently, but not in the music department. Well, the 18-year-old singer is working on his career – this month is set to see the Utah stop of his Believe tour and the release of his acoustic EP, entitled (can you guess?) Believe Accoustic.
