Justin Bieber isn't the only one driving too fast in his sports cars, his friends get equal billing. YMCMB rapper, Lil Twist was pulled over for speeding and just happened to be behind the wheel of the teen's all white Ferrari.
Twist was stopped as he left the exclusive Calabasas, CA, gated community where the singer has been upsetting neighbors with his fast driving and house parties. Cops stopped Twist momentarily, but let him off with a warning, according to TMZ.
Bieber has been longtime friends with the Houston native, who's taken the blame for his superstar friend's bad behavior. Photos of 19-year-old Bieber allegedly smoking weed at the top of the year kicked off a series of public missteps, which he recently addressed while receiving the Milestone trophy at the Billboard Music Awards. "I'm 19 years old. I think I'm doing a pretty good job," he told the crowd before getting booed. "And basically, from my heart, I just really want to say it should really be about the music. This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously, and all this other bulls--t should not be spoken of."
After the speech, Bieber went back to terrorizing the usually quiet neighborhood, home to the likes of ex-NFL star Keyshawn Johnson who had a run-in with the singer over the Memorial Day Weekend holiday. Johnson cornered the Canadian crooner in his driveway, but Bieber ran inside and refused to speak with the former athlete.
Bieber's antics have garnered tons of bad press but his mentor, Usher, is hopeful that things will turn around. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres Wednesday (May 29), Usher revealed that he and Bieber talk "as much as possible," and believes his protégé is just being a normal teen. "I don't look at is a negative though. I look at it as a teenager," he explained to the talk show host. "A teenager having to live his life in front of a camera. Imagine if you had to do that as a teenager."
