Justin Beiber Apologizes for Pot Use on SNL
"People make mistakes," said the pop star during the live show this weekend.
On this weekend's Saturday Night Live, pop star Justin Bieber apologized for last month's marijuana debacle...in third person. The 18-year-old singer, who hosted SNL for the first time, indirectly addressed the controversy while playing the president of The Miley Cyrus Fan Club in a reoccurring sketch called The Miley Cyrus Show. While in character, he first refers to Justin Bieber as "a douche." “I also heard he got busted for smoking weed," he says. "And he’s really sorry about it, and people make mistakes, and he’s never going to do it again.” Cyrus (played by Vanessa Bayer) replies, “Yeah. Me too.” Pictures of Bieber smoking weed at a party in Newport Beach, California, surfaced on the web early in the new year. The singer first addressed the incident on Twitter, writing: “Everyday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up. back on tour tomorrow. ready to see u all smile. time to do what im supposed to be doing. performing.” Pop singer Miley Cyrus has also stirred up controversy with her use of herbal remedies; in 2010, she was caught on camera smoking legal herb "salvia" from a bong.
