Justin Bieber is a “Rebel Without a Cause.”
Taking a page out of the 1955 film, Bieber showed off his best James Dean impression on Instagram over the weekend, imitating the Hollywood icon’s famous photo from the movie.
In a black-and-white picture, Bieber is seen sporting a white T-shirt and a gold watch with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. But don’t get too worked up over that cigarette, Beliebers, because Bieber made sure to mention in the caption of the photo that he does not smoke.
Bieber later posted the original photo of Dean, whose hair was not unlike Bieber’s (but who had no tattoos), to highlight the similarities.
Imitating Hollywood’s original bad boy isn’t the only thing keeping Bieber busy: The “All That Matters” singer has been spending a lot of time in the studio. Despite Bieber’s legal woes, he’s been teasing fans with snippets of what appear to be two new songs. The first is a track called “Life Is Worth Living,” which many have speculated is about on-again-off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, with whom he was spotted earlier this month in Texas. The second snippet, which was posted on his Instagram, features Bieber dancing to a song that sounds like it was produced by DJ Mustard.
