Justin Bieber baptized in a bathtub

Jun 8 2014, 5:26am CDT | by

Justin Bieber has been baptized in a bathtub in New York.

The 20-year-old pop star, who has apologised for making racist remarks in two videos which emerged this month, attempted to wash away his sins with a baptism carried out in a bathroom.

Pastor Carl Lentz, who works with Justin in America, told TMZ he spent a week doing intense Bible study with the star last month before the videos went public, after he claims he was approached by a man asking for a $1 million payout to keep them private.

Justin had been studying Bible passages and attending services but couldn't find a church where he could be baptized without being interrupted, so he chose to do it in a friend's bathroom to keep it private.

Meanwhile, Justin has received support from a number of black entertainers, including Usher, Whoopi Goldberg, Mike Tyson, Young Money, Floyd Mayweather and Souljah Boy, who claim he is not racist and was just a naive 14-year-old boy when he used the N-word and sang a song about joining the Ku Klux Klan.

Usher, who has been his mentor and manager throughout his career, wrote on Instagram: "As I have watched Justin Bieber navigate difficult waters as a young man, I can tell you that he hasn't always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist.

"What he was five years ago was a naive child who did not understand the negative power and degradation that comes from playing with racial slurs. What he is now is a young man faced with an opportunity to become his best self, an example to the millions of kids that follow him to not make the same mistakes."

Poor Selena Gomez. She changes the good things and holds onto the bad things. Instead of cutting Justin Bieber out of her life, Sel took a pair of shears to her hair and debuted a new set of flirty fringe. Observe: Instagram Meh, fine I suppose. I’m just so inclined to veto any of SG’s decisions these days–if I can’t trust her to make good decisions about boys, how can we trust her hair judgment? But I do rather like her ne ...
