Justin Bieber has gone a long way from baby-faced crooner to his new incarnation — that of accused drunk driver/drag racer. Part of the Bieb’s cleaner, less controversial past included hanging with the Obama family. The singer was a guest performer at the White House Easter egg roll in 2010, and sang for the First Family at a 2011 Christmas concert in Washington. Once upon a time, even the president was a Belieber: During a 2011 visit to a Virginia school, a girl asked him if he knew the pop star. “He’s a very nice young man,” he told the apparent fan, according to the AP.  That’s a sentiment he later repeated to Australian students during a 2011 visit down under.  “He is a very nice young man, and I’ll tell him you said ‘hi,'” Obama said.
