Music veteran Akon recently gave his take on pop star Justin Bieber getting busted for allegedly kicking back a few totes of marijuana and said he will handle the situation himself.
Although ‘Kon did not get too specific, he did vow to reach out to the Biebs.
Akon doesn’t drink … Akon doesn’t smoke … but Akon was pretty damn surprised when he found out his pal Justin Bieber might be doin’ both. Akon was leaving The Ivy yesterday when we asked him about the fan reaction to the photos of Bieber puffin’ away on a joint, while surrounded by Coronas, at a recent hotel party. “I gotta talk to Justin,” Akon said … “I didn’t know he was smoking. That’s my little man … hopefully, I’ll make an impact.” Akon’s confident he can reach his 18-year-old friend … telling us, “He’s a responsible kid.” (TMZ)
West Coast rapper Game recently shared some similar sentiments and defended JB’s polished image.
Game — a self-proclaimed weed enthusiast — was getting his hike on in L.A. today when we asked about the Bieber pics, and Game replied, “Let’s keep it real. There’s a lot of people in high positions … who smoke a little weed sometimes.” Game added, “I’m not saying it’s okay … but [Bieber] made a mistake. Forgive him. Let him go through the growing pains of his life.” And if Bieber REALLY needs to smoke out — Game says it might be worth looking into getting a prescription … for his glaucoma … or insomnia … or whatever else he can pull out of his ass on the fly.

Photos of Biebs allegedly indulging himself with marijuana have circulated online over the past week.
Bieber was photographed last Wednesday at a hotel-room party in Newport Beach holding what appears to be a marijuana cigarette while sitting with fellow partyers and a couple of empty beer bottles. The photos, taken in the presence of security and obtained by TMZ over the weekend, show the Biebs laughing and chatting with the lighted blunt between his fingers. Sources at the party told the website that rapper Lil Twist and his brother were rolling the blunts. The day before the pics were taken, Twist was pulled over while driving Bieber’s Ferrari, and freelance photographer Chris Guerra, who was trying to snap pics of the traffic stop, was killed while crossing Sepulveda Boulevard.

The controversial photos even started a “#CutForBieber” harmful trend.
Justin Bieber fans are known for their extreme dedication to the pop icon, but a disturbing Twitter trend that emerged on Monday made it seem that they had take their obsession to a frightening level. The term #CutForBieber started trending, initially as a joke started by the prankster website 4Chan. The trend comes days after photos surfaced of the “Baby” singer allegedly smoking marijuana. “Let’s start a cut yourself for Bieber campaign,” an anonymous user wrote on a 4Chan message board, according to Billboard. “Tweet a bunch of pics of people cutting themselves and claim we did it because Bieber was smoking weed. See if we can get some little girls to cut themselves.” (Fox News)
