Justin Bieber’s fans certainly have grown up, and the Canadian singer showed proof on his Instagram account on Sunday. Alongside the caption, “I guess everyone grows up,” the 19-year-old posted a picture of a bra thrown onstage presumably by a female fan during a performance.
Bieber has been a chart-topper since his career began just over five years ago at the age of 13. Since then, young girls have followed the star around the world. But it appears his fans are growing up alongside the singer nowadays, throwing lingerie onstage as opposed to more age appropriate items.
Over the years, the “Baby” singer has transitioned into adulthood in front of his adoring admirers, and it has not all been for the best. Lately, Bieber has had a string of personal issues, including being investigated for reckless driving recently, according to Reuters. Residents in his Calabasas, Calif., neighborhood told police the singer was driving his Ferrari at a high speed in a 25 mph zone.
In the past few weeks, marijuana was also found on his tour bus in Sweden and back in March he cursed out paparrazi in London and tried to attack one photographer who insulted him before his bodyguards pushed him in an awaiting SUV.
Even former fans have slammed the star: He was booed last month as he accepted his first-ever Mileston Award at the Billboard Music Awards.
After accepting the award, he said he wanted to be taken seriously as an artist. "I'm 19 years old. I think I'm doing a pretty good job," Bieber said. "Basically from my heart I really just want to say it really should be about the music. This is not a gimmick and I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously."
