Justin Bieber apologizes to Bill Clinton, thank goodness

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

Justin Bieber in a Wednesday night tweet directed at Bill Clinton, apparently settling whatever beef lay behind a mysterious TMZ-leaked video that showed the teen idol peeing into a janitor’s bucket at a restaurant and then spritzing a portrait of the 42nd president with cleaning fluid while shouting “[Expletive] Bill Clinton!” (Sources close to the 19-year-old star are telling celebrity outlets this conversation actually happened and that Clinton was totally magnanimous about the whole thing, which had no doubt been eating at him too. Update: Clinton’s office confirms that this happened, but no more details.) Unclear whether protocol allows one to advertise one’s private hatchet-burying conversation with an ex-president over social media; thus far, no Twitter response from Clinton.
