Is Justin Bieber Smoking? [PHOTO]

With all the stress in his life from his various legal issues and court cases and his on-off relationship with Selena Gomez, has Justin Bieber picked up a nasty habit and started smoking? While he posed for a picture with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, he has clarified that is not a smoker.

While the Biebs did test positive for pot in his system related to his Miami arrest in January, the singer isn’t down with cancer sticks. He posted a black and white photo on his Instagram, wearing a white t-shirt and showing off his sleeve of tattoos, with his pompadour ‘do in full view.

The image and the pose was very reminiscent of the late James Dean, the young hunk of ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ who died tragically and too soon in a car accident at the age of 24 in 1955.

Dean was emblematic of the anti-teen idol that Bieber was when he first got famous. Now that he has become a bit of a rebel, Bieber’s pic certainly pays homage to Dean in more ways than one.

With the cig in his mouth and his gaze averted, the Biebs projected a smoldering image, but he realized that he would catch heat and flack for it, posting: “This is James Dean inspired. Don’t ask me if I smoke ciggys cuz I don’t.”

Got that, Beliebers? He is not smoking.

However, a lot of fans and their parents might see this pose as promoting smoking regardless of the fact that he doesn’t partake in the habit. It might even be seen as glamorizing it, since, whether he likes it or not, he is a role model and millions of teenagers look up to him and his every move.
