Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber
Last night the Judiciary Report was highly critical of Justin Bieber's hoax, regarding his laptop with "footage" on it being stolen and what it led to online, all in the name of a publicity stunt for his new song "Beauty And A Beat." The Judiciary Report accused Bieber of "crying wolf."
Well, this morning, Bieber's rep did a retraction, stating he didn't cry wolf and his laptop was really stolen. Two days ago, the Judiciary Report also asked if a police report had been filed. Today Bieber's rep is stating one was filed. This whole thing is not making sense.
..."Be very clear, the laptop was indeed stolen in Tacoma. That was NOT a hoax," Bieber's publicist, Melissa Victor, wrote in an email to the AP. The whole episode raised eyebrows Friday when it appeared the tweet — and subsequent tweets from an account called @gexwy — were all part of an elaborate stunt to publicize Bieber's new Beauty and a Beat video, released Friday. The video opens with text saying personal footage was stolen and uploaded "illegally."
