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.

    bieber is a creation by adults who want to make money off the tween girl frenzy market. its been done for decades and they are just better at marketing, advertising, taking advantage of hormone crazed young girls and the parents who are too stupid to explain to them that they are being manipulated. you put ANY BOY into that situation and they would behave similar if not worse... not that its an excuse but just how the typical boy would act

    The chef at the kitchen should have popped him one in the head, what an insult to all the minimum wage kitchen staff, make him empty the bucket, and replace it and the mop. And then call the cops anyway. You can't behave like this when you are famous. Too mentally dull to use a regular toilet?

    There is something really off-putting about this kid. I have yet to see any redeeming qualities. Such a shame to be given so much and use it for so little.

    You appoligise for things you do unintentionaly, when you didn't meant to cause harm or offence. Beiber meant every act he pulled out that night; this jerk needs a serious beat down. To my wonderful neighbours in the south, sorry for unleashing this little ahole on you all. No give backs though...we don't want him here.

    The only way to hear good Justin Bieber music is to listen to Dirty Loops version of it. Ditto Britney, ditto Rihanna, ...

    I'm sorry, but to all who think he's just acting his age, there are young men his age in this country who have died to protect his right to act like a self-centered, the world spins around me, the girls all want me, I'm the greatest, idiot. His actions are not that of a 19 year old; they are the actions of a 14 year old and an immature one at that. I saw his mother in an interview say that he was aware of how she felt about his recent actions. He obviously has no respect for his mother either. I find him disgusting, self-absorbed and not bright enough to realize that his fans have been reduced to the 10-13 year old age group. About the same intelligence and maturity level he's operating within.

    Why is Justin Bieber being such a brat? For attention? To shake his bubble gum image? Doesn't he know bad boys and girls always fall flat? Look at the history.

    The trouble with most people who find themselves in the Limelight is that they begin to believe their own PR Spin.

    Dude needs to get a grip. Drop out of the public eye for a while if it helps with your psychosis, JB. Go talk to Britney for some perspective.

    As a proud Canadian I'm totally ashamed that this douchebag is from our country. Trust me, most Canadians feel the same way, total poser-loser and does not represent what it means to be a Canadian!!!

  23. Do It Then Apologize

    Why do these stars do things like that that they know are wrong only to later have to apologize? It makes them look bad and highly disrespectful of one of our best U.S. Presidents. President Clinton was sure nice over this incident. However, others may not have been. I hope Bieber finally grows up with the mentality to control his emotions and do that which is civil and correct. He needs to.
