During a performance in Tacoma, Washington, Justin Bieber's most prized possession was stolen. No, not his hair gel. No, not his collection of Jesus necklaces.
No, not the Real Doll he passes off as Selena Gomez.
It was his laptop. The answer was laptop. And once he reaslized it was stolen, Bieber did what anyone born after 1993 would do in a time of crisis - write about it on Twitter. "yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other's property."
You know, I hadn't thought about it like that, but Justin Bieber is RIGHT. Thank God he went to Twitter to remind us that it isn't right to steal other people's things. Justin Bieber is really making a difference. I'm excited to see what complicated, divisive issue he takes on next.
"i just think its whack when you steal candy from a baby #niceness #compassion #invitro"
But can we talk for a minute about the number of favorites and retweets this guy gets? Over 18,000 people thought this was amongst their FAVORITE tweets.
Over 45,000 people HAD TO LET THEIR FOLLOWERS KNOW that
Justin Bieber is SAD someone STOLE HIS LAPTOP.
Bieber also spoke of some "personal footage" on the laptop, and since it was stolen, a picture allegedly of Bieber has begun circulating the internet. Apparently, it features a naked guy with the same bird hip tattoo Bieber sports, but the face has been cropped out of the photo.
it's impossible to tell who's in a photo when the head is cropped out.
I tried to find the picture to see for myself if it was Bieber or not, but most websites reporting on the stolen laptop incident have taken the "out of respect we won't be posting the picture" position. And while that's a fair stance to take, it makes finding the picture itself REALLY hard. I felt like, for the sake of this story and my journalistic integrity, I had to find the picture and determine its veracity. But then I realized just how many times I was Googling "justin bieber nude pics" and decided that Jesus Christ it's time to evaluate how much of myself I'm REALLY willing to give to this job.
