Every morning Justin Bieber wakes and rises and brushes his teeth and has a bowl of muesli, and then the next thing he does it puts his hand into a silken sack with three modified bingo balls in it. This is a fact. One ball reads: ‘owls’. Another reads ‘Jesus’. The third reads ‘Mummy Bieber’. And then once he’s drawn a ball from the sack he has a shower and then immediately gets a tattoo of whatever it was. Relatively little of this is fabricated.
Anyway, today (Wednesday) was clearly a ‘Mummy Bieber’ day, as the tiny little Canadian popstar has today unveiled a fresh inking on his right collar bone in dedication to his Ma.
Biebs posted a picture onto Instagram (the time-honoured fashion of telling your Mum you got a tattoo), in which he poses alongside producer buddy Mally Mall as they show off their matching tattoos. Both read ‘I IX VII V’, or ‘1 9 7 5’ in Roman numerals, and seeing as that is Mummy Bieber Pattie Mallette’s year of birth, we’ve sort of filled in the gaps and assumed the tattoo is about her.
Meanwhile, heat is busy consulting The On-Off-o-meter – an actual thing we have in the office to help divine whether celebrity couplings are on or off – and it’s telling us that Justin and Selena Gomez are still ‘off again’ after Selena was spotted at the Golden Globes after party with Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson. But then she was also seen using Vanessa Hudgens as a crutch, so maybe she just needed some actual bodily support.
