    I saw some of the pictures. A couple of the pictures of the cut arms had quite a few old scars. I don't know if they were actual Bieber fans, or went looking for pictures online that cutters may have posted. Either way...tragic.

    It's not Justin Beibers fault if he has fans willing to cut themselves. The issue is one mom and dad need to address not Justin.

    I dont blame Bieber for his fans they are young and he does not seem to encourage them but Gaga, her fans are nuts, they threaten people and say horrible things and instead of telling them that its not cool, she defends them. I read an article recently that commented on an interview where Kelly Osborne said that she got death threats from Lady Gaga's little monsters. Instead of telling her little monsters that cyber bullying is wrong she wrote an open letter to Kelly blaming her comments on Fashion Police. Had she incorporated that into an apology or at the same time commented on how she should be discouraging cyber bullying but she didn't she just defended her fans rights to say whatever they want because Kelly is not setting a good example by ridiculing stars on Fashion Police
    I am not a fan of Kelly or Gaga but I will admit I like watching Fashion police and the stars seem to take it as the joke it is and for as many negative things they say they often have very positive things to say especially Kelly who tends to be the one on the show who sticks up for people who show their individuality through fashion so Lady Gaga's attitude really annoyed me so I kinda do blame her for her fans
    Plus she set her self up as an advocate for Tweens so she is asking to be a role model so she should at least say something about death threats not being cool
    I think it is probably unfair to make every public figure a role model and I am sure it is difficult for some of them to live up to but unfortunately as long as your craft depends on fans to keep it alive then your going to be one and should try and be a good one at least in public

    I haven't seen any pics of actual cutting. The ones I saw (maybe on The Daily What) were humorous and not real.

    4Chan started a trending hashtag a few months ago urging Bieber fans to shave their heads in support of him because he has cancer. It's ridiculous and sad that more than a few girls shaved their heads before bothering to even google to verify if he was sick.

    I don't get all the Bieber adulation. He looks like little girl and he's almost 19. I think he's a little punk. He had the nerve to call the President "dude" and showed up to meet the Canadian Prime Minister in overalls and a baseball cap. Can we send him off to live on an island with Taylor Swift?

    The way I heard the photo with the Canadian Prime Minister and overalls/cap explained (on Ellen) was that the PM showed up when he was pre/post performing and it was part of his stage get-up. I'm not defending him, just saying you don't always know the whole story from a photograph. He still could have taken his hat off... one of my pet peeves.

    I saw that on Ellen too. Beiber said if he were meeting the PM at his office he would have dressed appropriately. He said the pic was taken at his show and the PM's people even setup the flags for the pic.

    I wasn't just referring to Bieber himself, but including his fan base and everything else.

    The ones I saw were definitely not comedy. I only saw them because a teen family member shared them on Facebook. Cutting is a big problem among troubled young women. Because of the work I do, I have seen many girls with scarred arms and legs. Any site that makes light of it - well, to me it's on a par with someone sharing dead baby jokes on Facebook on the page of someone who lost an infant to SIDS (something that happened to a friend of mine).

    Well, well, well, seems like Taylor Swift has her sights set on Bradley Cooper. According to this article she asked Jennifer Lawrence to set them up & he said, No Thanks!
