Justin Bieber Speaks (on Instagram)

Above, the first statement from Justin Bieber since he was arrested for drag-racing around Miami Beach while drunk and high. It is a perplexing Instagram update for many reasons, not least of which is that Justin Bieber appears to be comparing his recent legal troubles to Michael Jackson's. That seems … ill-advised. Another question: If he's quoting The Black Album, then are we to assume that his fake retirement is still on? Or (more likely) that he's being ordered to take a break? Final question: Do you think Justin Bieber had this particular MJ photo in mind when he climbed on top of the SUV and waved to the crowd? Or did he just find this on Tumblr?
