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.

    The Brits are right: he's a little moron. Too much too soon. The news of his fatal overdose won't surprise anyone.

    Really? How the heck did JB get PRESIDENT CLINTON'S phone number? Why does bad music (yes I am talking to you Kanye, JayZ, Justin Timberlake, etc.....) equate to stardom and the access to important leaders and people in our country??

    At least he had enough sense to eat his words. Maybe his mommy finally bent him over her knee.

    File this under who cares. But I do find it funny that a kid who calls himself an artist his fan base is an average of 12 years old. Seniors in high school are so over him. In my day we had Donnie Osmand, The DeFranco Family, and...AND! Michael Jackson. So MJ is an exception.

    The worst thing that Justin Bieber has ever done is inhale and then exhale....and yet he keeps doing it, over and over again.

    The death toll in Quebec has now risen to 24. Not a peep on CNN. But whatever Justin Beiber does is front page news. You make me sick CNN.

    I thought urinating in public places is an offense and can put you in jail. He is not even going to get fined?

    Why should someone have to wash away his urine and spread whatever's left on the floor of that restaurant?

    What a looser!!!

    Some young people become famous, mature and become adults whom we can admire. This kid is a punk, plain and simple. Wish he'd just go away.

    THe best part about his impending doom is that in a few years, no one will remember or care about him.
