Justin Bieber wants to clear the air . . . sort of.

Hours after TMZ released photos of the Canadian singer smoking what appears to be a blunt, Bieber took to Twitter to post several messages possibly in response to the allegations.

“everyday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up,” he wrote, later adding that he was excited to be back on his “Believe” tour the next day.

“i see all of you. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and..thank u #beliebers.”

On Friday, TMZ posted snaps of the 18-year-old from a gathering in Newport Beach on Jan. 2, one day after a photographer was killedwhile following Bieber’s white Ferarri. Bieber was not in the car at the time of the accident.

According to TMZ sources, Bieber’s pal Lil Twist -- who was behind the wheel during the paparazzo incident -- and his brother were rolling joints at the Newport party.

“While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim,” Bieber said in a statement following the New Year’s Day shocker.

“Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent bystanders, and the photographers themselves.”

Bieber is scheduled to play in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday night, followed by shows in Denver, Tulsa and North Little Rock later in the week.

    I find zero satisfaction on anothers demise. If you do you have your own problems. Remember the glass house before you speak, he lives in one. MediaBS is what it is. I suggest we all simply revisit the news on entertainers quartely for a more balanced view of their lives.

    Here follows an extract from "Notes on Democracy" by Henry Louis Mencken, written in 1926, during alcohol prohibition (1919-1933): The Prohibitionists, when they foisted their brummagem cure-all upon the country under cover of the war hysteria, gave out that their advocacy of it was based upon a Christian yearning to abate drunkenness, and so abolish crime, poverty and disease. They preached a [crime, poverty and disease free] millennium, and no doubt convinced hundreds of thousands of naive and sentimental persons, not themselves Puritans, nor even democrats. That millennium, as everyone knows, has failed to come in. Not only are crime, poverty and disease undiminished, but drunkenness itself, if the police statistics are to be believed, has greatly increased. The land rocks with the scandal. Prohibition has made the use of alcohol devilish and even fashionable, and so vastly augmented the number of users. The young of both sexes, mainly innocent of the cup under license, now take to it almost unanimously. In brief, Prohibition has not only failed to work the benefits that its proponents promised in 1917; it has brought in so many new evils that even the mob has turned against it. But do the Prohibitionists admit the fact frankly, and repudiate their original nonsense? They do not. On the contrary, they keep on demanding more and worse enforcement statutes — that is to say, more and worse devices for harassing and persecuting their opponents. The more obvious the failure becomes, the more shamelessly they exhibit their genuine motives. In plain words, what moves them is the psychological aberration called sadism. They lust to inflict inconvenience, discomfort, and, whenever possible, disgrace upon the persons they hate — which is to say, upon everyone who is free from their barbarous theological superstitions, and is having a better time in the world than they are. They cannot stop the use of alcohol, nor even appreciably diminish it, but they can badger and annoy everyone who seeks to use it decently, and they can fill the jails with men taken for purely artificial offences, and they can get satisfaction thereby for the Puritan yearning to browbeat and injure, to torture and terrorize, to punish and humiliate all who show any sign of being happy. And all this they can do with a safe line of policemen and judges in front of them; always they can do it without personal risk.

    Oh for the love of god this is so not shocking at all. Just another celebrity that smokes weed. Who the fuck cares. Miley Cyrus does it Paris Hilton does it Lady Gaga Katy perry Rihanna John F Kennedy Marilyn Monroe Jennifer Aniston Drew Barrymore all do it. I could go on with more celebrities but it's too long. For god sakes weed isn't even bad at all. It's amazing. Just let the dude do it. He doesn't even need to apologize. Justin Bieber if you like weed then continue smoking it dude.

    i agree who cares if an 18 year old boy is smoking pot people need to see the real bad in this country why not go down to skid row where there is children who are homeless and see what we can do to help them... its a effin plant who cares who smokes it.

  • soshaljustic

    lol Over 4 bln people in the world-many without homes and food in their stomachs and we are worried about some guy sticking a dandelion in a piece of paper and smoking it? Gimmie a break! Media need to get a life and work around changing humanity for the better bottom ladder of society rather than hounding people smoking weeds!
