Justin Bieber Apologizes to Bill Clinton (But What About the Bucket?)

July 9: Despite the video debacle, Justin Bieber happily poses with the Stanley Cup.

Justin Bieber has gone into damage control mode after a leaked video showed him urinating into a janitor's mop bucket and yelling "F--k Bill Clinton" while defacing a photo of the former president. The pop star claims he spoke directly with Clinton on Wednesday and it can be assumed he apologized.

His apparent contrition is in response to an incident earlier this year, but only brought light this week by TMZ, in which Bieber wrapped up an impromptu "piss break" in the basement of an NYC restaurant by spraying a photo of Clinton while barking the obscenity.

After receiving a considerable amount of flack for the multiple offenses, Bieber reportedly contacted Clinton, who E! Online reports took it all in stride. Bieber is said to have offered to help the Clinton Global Initiative.

Clinton has not commented on the possible conversation; a message seeking confirmation was left at his office at the Clinton Foundation.

While he appears to have worked things out with the former president, it is not known if Bieber has reached out to the restaurant where he incorrectly relieved himself, or the actual mop bucket, which let's face it deserved better.
