Justin Bieber on New Tattoo: Mom’s Always Watching

JustinBieber/Instagram(NEW YORK) -- Usually teenage boys will do anything to avoid their mothers. Justin Bieber, 19, wants his watching his every move.

After months of acting out, including run-ins with the paparazzi and angry neighbors, the “Baby” singer paid a tribute to his mother Pattie Mallette, getting a tattoo of her eye on the inside of his left elbow.

Bieber chose Bang Bang in NYC, the same tattoo shop that did his “Believe” ink that now sits beneath the eye on his forearm.

After the tattoo was finished, Bieber posted a picture Wednesday on Instagram with the caption “Moms always watching ;)”

Bang Bang also posted a pic on the shop’s Facebook account, showing the “Never Say Never” star posing with tattoo artist Keith McCurdy.

The Biebs has been in a bit of hot water lately, most recently apologizing to former President Bill Clinton after a video was discovered of him yelling obscenities about Clinton while urinating into a bucket.
Questions about Bieber’s personal life still loom, as well.

Earlier this month, Bieber posted a picture of himself and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez with one word attached: “Heartbreaker.” Since then, there’s been no word on a possible reunion.

Justin Bieber: Causing Trouble at Istanbul Airport?

STRINGER/AFP/Getty Images(ISTANBUL) -- Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber reportedly caused a ruckus at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport when he and his entourage blew through passport control without presenting their travel documents.

Team Bieber – around a dozen strong – went straight for the cars idling outside Wednesday night, with airport officials in hot pursuit, according to the Dogan News Agency. Eventually, airport security reportedly agreed to do the security check curbside and allowed the pop star to go on his way.

Fanatical Bieber fans – known as "Beliebers" – were waiting for the pint-sized singer as he stepped off his private plane, but were disappointed when his bodyguards whisked him into the awaiting vehicles.

Bieber, 19, is due to give a concert Thursday night to a sold-out crowd at Istanbul’s Technical University’s sports arena, and, according to his Twitter page, he can’t wait.

“Turkey is crazy right now,” he wrote. “We ready.”

Airports have not been kind to Bieber lately: He made news in March for walking through a Polish airport semi-naked.

Justin Bieber Meets Young Fan Battling Leukemia

DISNEYLAND/MARK ASHMAN(SALT LAKE CITY) -- An online and social media campaign helped a young Utah girl battling leukemia meet Justin Bieber on Saturday.

The Deseret News reports 7-year-old Millie Flamm had planned to attend Justin's concert Saturday in Salt Lake City until she suffered a relapse two weeks ago.  The newspaper reports her relapse prompted friends and family members to enlist thousands of Millie’s supporters in an online campaign to encourage the singer to meet her.

As late as Saturday morning, Millie's mother, Amanda, wasn't sure the meeting with Justin would happen, and didn't even know if her daughter would be able to meet him because she was running a fever and was on oxygen.

Then, at the last minute, a private meeting was arranged. Millie’s mother tells the Deseret News, "All of a sudden it pulled through and we were able to do a really intimate little meeting with just her and us and Justin and it was incredible and he was so sweet to her.”

Amanda described the meeting to the newspaper, "[Justin] walked in and [Millie's] whole face just lit up, and she turned around and hugged her dad, and then he ran over and came next to her and gave her a big hug."

Justin sang his song “Baby” to Millie and gave her a guitar pick. He then gave her a kiss on the cheek before leaving.  The newspaper reports Millie told her mom, "You are never going to wash my face again."

A photo of Justin and Millie with the caption "Look at this bundle of joy...I love her," appeared on the singer's Instagram page.

Millie will continue her treatment re-energized, according to her mother, who added, "I have no words. There is no way to say thank you to everybody who helped make this happen," she said. "I have no words but thank you, and that's not enough."
