A day after his highly publicized arrest in Miami Beach on Thursday on suspicion of DUI, Justin Bieber broke his silence with an Instagram post comparing himself to Michael Jackson, accompanied by a caption referencing a lyric from another musical mastermind, Jay Z: “What more can they say.”
Well, a few hours later, he had a few more words — this time for his Beliebers.
“YOU ARE ALL WORTHY NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS >> BE STRONG GOD IS WITH US ALL> MY BELIEBERS CHANGED MY LIFE> I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL,” the pop singer tweeted on Friday (January 24). Moments later, he retweeted a fans’ message that read, “YOU saved my life and everyday i am grateful to YOU. Never change for anyone. You are an amazing kind soul @justinbieber.”

While his Beliebers have always been a loyal bunch, when news spread that the “Boyfriend” singer and friend Khalil Sharieff were caught drag racing — allegedly under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs — they were a little more hesitant to stand behind him.
Early Friday morning, Bieber’s father, Jeremy Bieber, took to Twitter as well, in a message that seemed to be directed to the press. Jeremy Bieber was reportedly with his son at the time of his arrest, and while he didn’t confirm or deny those reports, he did use his message to clarify who the real “enemy” is.
“I can protect my kids, but I can’t protect them from you and your lies,” he wrote on Friday. “Believe in the truth not in the lies of the enemy. #reallife”
