Justin Bieber’s birthday is on Saturday, March 1, and throngs of fans wished the Canadian-born singer well.
“Justin is 20,” trended on Twitter Friday night, likely in reference to his birthday being celebrated in later time zones than North America.
“Tuesday 1st March, 1994, at 12:56am, our everything, Justin Drew Bieber was born. 20 years later,” one fan of Bieber wrote.
On Friday, Bieber tweeted that he is in Atlanta currently, without offering any details on his plans for his 20th birthday.
This week, Bieber’s booking video during an incident in Miami several weeks ago was released.
Bieber’s legal team successfully blocked a portion of the video from being released to the public, but other parts were disseminated online via several media outlets.
The video showed the singer stumbling through a sobriety test after the Jan. 23 arrest.
Bieber’s attorneys raised no objections to the roughly 10 hours of video released Wednesday following public records requests by The Associated Press and other news organizations. They have argued to a judge, however, that police video of the 19-year-old pop singer urinating into a cup for a drug test is an out-of-bounds invasion of his privacy.
Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield plans to review the withheld video privately and have a hearing next week on whether any portions will be released. The arguments over police video have delayed Bieber’s trial date, which is now uncertain.
The videos made public Wednesday were recorded at the Miami Beach Police Department shortly after Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested during what officers said was an illegal street drag race in exotic sports cars. They were not charged with drag racing, however.
In one clip, Bieber — dressed in a dark hoodie with the hood over his head, dark baggy shorts and bright red shoes — wavers as he tries to walk carefully and slowly heel to toe. He stumbles slightly as he turns and appears to have his arms out for balance. In a second try, he stumbles again, even reaching out to a wall for support and has an animated face-to-face conversation with a police officer in which both point fingers at each other.
