Justin Bieber’s Manager Back In Court

Justin Bieber’s Manager Back In Court

It’s a sign of the times. Not Justin Bieber’s meteoric rise to super-stardom, but the fact that his manager is facing jail time for not tweeting fast enough.

Scott “Scooter” Braun, 28, faces charges of reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance. If convicted he could face up to a year in prison. For a guy nicknamed “Scooter” a year in prison is a long time.

Back in November, Justin Bieber was forced to cancel a concert at the Roosevelt Field Mall (Garden City, New York)—there were just too many screaming tweens.

With the crowd out of control, police asked Braun to send a tweet announcing the concert’s cancellation. According to the Nassau County District Attorney, Braun took two hours to send the tweets. According to Braun’s lawyer it took seven minutes.

Scott “Scooter” Braun’s Tweets:
“they are not allowing me to come into the mall. If you don’t leave I and my fans will be arrested as the police have just told us that.”

“the event at roosevelt mall is cancelled. Please go home. The police have already arrested one person from my camp. I don’t want anyone hurt.”

At least that’s the way the story is being reported. Obviously, Braun did much more than not tweet with the desired alacrity. He was probably uncooperative and combative. He is from Manhattan after all.

Surely Braun was vying for some publicity, trying to sell some Justin Bieber concert tickets, and possibly even looking to gain some much needed “street cred.”

Now that he’s got it (at least the first two things), look for Braun to quickly cut some sort of deal and avoid jail time. After all, he doesn’t want to miss Justin Bieber’s upcoming North American World Tour.

Justin Bieber embarks on a 42-date world tour June 23 in Hartford, Connecticut. The global odyssey has Justin Bieber performing all over the United States and Canada… only. The epic North American world tour concludes Sept. 4 in Allentown, Pennsylvania (in case you haven’t guessed, Justin Bieber never leaves the continent).

Despite having released only one full length studio album, Bieber is scheduled to perform at quite an impressive array of venues. Look for him to grace the stages of the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Air Canada Center in Toronto, the Palace of Auburn Hills outside of Detroit, and the Amway Arena in Orlando.

On August 31, Justin Bieber is scheduled to play at the most famous arena in the world, New York City’s Madison Square Garden. In less than a year, Justin Bieber has gone from playing at malls to playing at MSG–not too shabby for a kid that doesn’t need to shave.

Opening for Justin Bieber on his My World Tour (his outing’s official title) is reggae singer-rapper, Sean Kingston, 20.

If you can’t wait until this summer to see Bieber sing, dance, and awkwardly maneuver his way through puberty, you can watch him this weekend on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Bieber has been booked as the musical guest. Tina Fey is set to host.

Recently, a fishwrap hack asked Fey if she had ever met Justin Bieber. Here’s her reply…

“I met him at the Kids’ Choice Awards. He’s a nice young man”

Oh Tina. You couldn’t have sounder older if you used the term “whipper-snapper,” ordered a Slow Gin Fizz, and asked “what’s this bookface nonsense?”

Justin Bieber’s SNL appearance concludes a very exciting and hectic week for the heart throb. On Monday he performed at the White House Easter Egg Roll (cuz’ that’s how the White House rolls). Justin Bieber gave three performances in 90 degree heat, and judging from his tweets, he nearly passed out from “dehydration” (sounds like someone was imbibing).

Nonetheless, the burgeoning crooner took a tour of the White House and visited with the First Family. President Obama caused tween girls all across the nation to text “OMG” when he mispronounced Justin Bieber’s name (Bye-ber instead of BEE-ber) during a public introduction.

“He messed up my name, but I give it to him. He’s not [the] age category I sing to. He’s not ‘One Less Lonely Girl,'” Justin Bieber told People Magazine.

Land of Punt has to hand it to the kid, that was a great response to the presidential gaffe.
