Justin Bieber and “Belieber” Rep. Tom Price

Clinton and the Biebs bonded after video emerged of the teenage star urinating into a cleaning bucket at a New York restaurant, then angrily spraying cleaning fluid on a photo of Clinton and shouting, “[Expletive] Bill Clinton!”

Then the Canadian Scourge — as he’s been called — phoned and apologized to the former president and promptly told us about it on Twitter:

“@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr. President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy.”

Now, thanks to Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), you’ve got a chance to snag some tickets and “come watch Justin Bieber perform” at a “family-friendly concert!” at the Verizon Center on Saturday, Aug. 3, our invitation says. (“Family-friendly” apparently would indicate no bucket antics.)

“We have a few tickets left,” for the naturally sold-out concert, the invite cautions, which you can get for $1,500 for one or $2,500 for two, “or if you have more kids who want to join, let us know and we’ll accommodate the family!”

Proceeds go to “Voice for Freedom,” Price’s leadership political action committee. So Bieber’s reaching across party lines?
