Bieber calls Clinton after using the F-word

(CNN) – Justin Bieber called and apologized to former President Bill Clinton after a recently-emerged video showed the artist spraying cleaner fluid on a photo of the former president and saying "F*** Bill Clinton."

An aide to Clinton confirmed the apology, and Bieber tweeted about the conversation Wednesday night.


The video, posted online by TMZ, showed Bieber urinating in a janatorial mop bucket as he and his entourage exited a nightclub through a restauraunt kitchen.

The poorly-shot video then shows Bieber using what looks like cleaning liquid to spray a poster of Clinton as the performer shouts the expletive about the former president. The incident reportedly happened in New York City earlier this year.

E! Online reported that Bieber told Clinton he would love to help the Clinton Global Initiative, a public health and humanitarian organization run by the former president and his family.

Clinton reportedly told Bieber, "If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well."

– CNN's Paul Steinhauser and Ashley Killough contributed to this report.

    I've seen this twit, doing his show/song on several talk shows. He is nothing but a crotch grabber. What's up with grabbing your crotch every 15 seconds? No talent and you need to distract people? Parents: why do you let your kids listen/watch this guy? He is a terrible role model, in every way. A very troubled young man who is gradually losing it, in front of everyone. He is not a very educated person but does not KNOW that he is ignorant. I wish he would just go away – for good.

    It's like Peewee Herman trying to become Mick Jagger. Maybe if if he was photographed stretched-out across Billy Ray Cyrus's lap like Miley, people would notice his TRANSformation.

    What an arrogant little moron to think that Clinton cares what he says or thinks.

    Good thing he made that call. I have feeling that Bill probably knows a lot of folks who could make the Beebs disappear.

    How does this kid have access to converse with Bill Clinton??? this goes beyond my comprehension that a kiddie pop star can just call up a former President of the United States .

    I have to take a leak!
    Quick!! Is there a "Bieby" poster around somewhere?!?!

    He is just a no talent flavor of the time managing to stretch his 15 minutes out.
    Sonner or later he will crash, hard and the public will be one with him.

    F-BOMB Bieber!!

    Back in medieval times, when knights were horsing around and nobody bathed much, actors and musicians traveled between the towns entertaining the locals. These little troupes offered music (the lute was popular then), perhaps a puppet show for the kids, and the news of the kingdom spoken or sung poetically. Poetry was the vehicle because the rhyming made it easier to remember the facts. If their performances were acceptable, they were sent on their way with a few coins and maybe a sack of food. If they weren’t up to snuff (although snuff hadn’t been invented yet), they were thrashed soundly and run out of town. Times sure have changed.

    What about apologizing to the janitor who had to clean up the kid's urine?

  23. really?

    @justinbeiber – A LOT is 2 words – just for future reference. @billclinton – you took a phone call from Justin Beiber? Hope this makes the news this evening and I am sure it will. Look out Selena – you are now on Bill's radar!

    Justin Bieber has made an awful lot of bad choices lately. And every time he does these things he apologizes. At what point does the public say enough is enough! I say that after you tick people off day after day, and your publicist then recognizes your insensitive behavior and you post the apology online, your apology should carry no weight. I am sure that everyone screws up now and again, but when you do it continuously then you know it is probably just a publicity stunt.
    Justin your not sorry, just admit it already!

    I think Justin Bieber is an amazing national icon in Canada. Everyone makes mistakes, that's why pencils have erasers, and Justin was big enough to apologize to the president over the incident. What's more, he even offered to help Clinton's charity after the minor incident, helping those in need.

    Justin Bieber is a great role model, you guys are just jealous of his talent and wish the US produced someone as great as him. Thanks, Justin.
