Taco Bell president Brian Niccol told Redditors Thursday that the fast food giant won’t be rolling out breakfast in Canada until they “take Justin Beiber back.”
“I am Brian Niccol, President of Taco Bell,” Niccol wrote under the username RealTacoBell. “Today is the biggest launch in Taco Bell history as we bring breakfast to America. AMA!”
During an “Ask Me Anything” session Niccol was asked, “Only to America? When is this coming to Canada?”
“When you take Justin Bieber back,” Niccol responded.
Taco Bell just introduced the new Waffle Taco as part of the "largest menu expansion in Taco Bell's 50-year history." The move has McDonald’s on the run. They announced Friday that McCafe will be offering free coffee nationwide for two weeks.
Taco Bell ads released this week poked fun at their competitor, showing men name Ronald McDonald eating Taco Bell for breakfast.
The student body president of a Washington State high school plays Justin Bieber’s “Baby” on repeat between classes and during lunch period, and he won’t stop until they raise at least $500 for African orphans.
Connor Stakelin of Tenino High School says the money is to improve the lives of 254 ophans at a school in Ghana.
“The school is called Crossover International Academy,” Stakelin told King 5 News. "It helps kids that don’t have meals, they don’t even have a bed to lie on at night and in their school they don’t even have more than one piece of paper per day."
He started playing the Bieber song last week. As of Monday afternoon, the school had raised $332 in donations.
“For some of them it’s incentive to donate because they don’t want to hear it anymore,” he said.
“Oh, my God, my head is about to explode right now,” said student Zack Chamberlain. “I’m pretty sure I’ve had five Ibuprofen already.”
“We’re done listening to that song over and over again,” said student Jasmine Moore. "It’s getting very bad. I just want to go home."
Tenino Elementary School Principal Dave Ford, who came up with the idea, said supporting the school has actually unified the community.
“We kind of have this forest fire of passion, compassion and empathy,” said Ford. “It’s flying through the district from 3rd to 12th grade. They understand the connection between needs, wants and other people’s reality.”
Of all of Justin Bieber’s videos, this one might become his biggest hit.
Prosecutors released footage yesterday taken at a Miami Beach police station in which the Canadian pop star stumbles his way through a sobriety test after his now infamous Jan. 23 DUI arrest.
The clip is a part of ten hours of video released to the Associated Press on Wednesday. While video footage only features Bieber sparingly, he can clearly be seen wobbling as he tries to turn and change direction.
Bieber can also be seen in a “finger-pointing match” with an officer.
A judge blocked the release of several parts of the video that show the singer’s private parts, including the part where Bieber is seen urinating for a drug test.
The star faces misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, DUI, and driving with a non-valid license.
A drug test found marijuana and Xanax in his system, as well as amounts of alcohol below the legal limit.
The 19-year-old has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Bieber continues to make headlines as police found marijuana and two large smoking pipes, CNN reported today.
Police searched his Cadillac Escalade on Tuesday night after they found a camera inside that a photographer claimed was his, according to a police report.
“Due to the small amount, no charges were filed related to the marijuana,” a police statement said.

A hearing was scheduled by Justin Bieber’s lawyers in an attempt to prevent news organizations from obtaining unreleased footage of the pop star in jail.
The hearing is set for Thursday before a Miami-Dade County judge.
While Bieber’s attorneys argue that they need more time to review the videos, news organizations have complained that there is no basis under Florida law that allows attorneys to withhold the footage.
The collection of media groups has asked the judge to grant it access to the videos and has promised that the Associated Press will review the content.
If the videos are obtained, the AP would guarantee that the footage meet the news co-operative’s standard of publication.
Miami Beach Police have already released one jail video, which features the singer getting a pat-down after he removed his outer clothing.
The video was reportedly released without police notifying Bieber’s lawyers.
A viral story claiming a shirtless Justin Bieber was smacked around by L.A. Clippers star Blake Griffin during an argument at a West Hollywood Starbucks on Monday morning is actually fake.
Perhaps it was just wishful thinking, but several sports blogs and news outlets picked up the story from Empire Sports, despite its having been labeled as “news satire.”
The proof that the story is fake? Bieber is currently in Atlanta recording new music, reports the Inquisitr.
The story claimed police were called into a Starbucks in West Hollywood after an altercation occurred that began with a barista refusing to serve Bieber.
The pop star came into the coffee shop with “no shirt on and his pants hanging down and underwear showing,” Joey Goldsmith, the fictional barista, was reported saying.
“I just told him he would have to put a shirt on if he wanted to order,” Goldsmith said, according to the fictional police report.
Bieber was reported to have gotten upset at the barista’s request, yelling at him and then telling his bodyguard to “kick his ass.”
That’s when Griffin, who just happened to be at that same Starbucks at the same time as Bieber, decided to step in and ease tensions.
But when he couldn’t, Griffin smacked Bieber, knocking the Canadian pop star to the floor.
“He smacked the s--- out of him,” one witness was quoted saying. “Then I saw Justin stumble out of the door like he was crying.”
Even Los Angeles Lakers player Chris Kaman, who played with Griffin for one season with the Clippers, tweeted about the “incident,” which made it sound even more true:
“I was sitting in the corner of Starbucks and Blake did not smack Bieber! Well at least not that hard.....”
According to Gossip Cop, a source close to Bieber said the story is “made up” and “Justin has not returned to Los Angeles [for weeks].
Given Bieber’s recent wild nights out and trouble with the police, can you blame people for thinking this story was real?
During a flight from Canada to New Jersey last Friday, Justin Bieber's privately leased plane was reportedly so full of marijuana smoke that the pilots were forced to wear oxygen masks to fly safely.
The flight on a luxurious Gulfstream IV included Bieber, his father and 10 other people, say law enforcement sources.
The plane flew from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada to a private airport in Teterboro, N.J. so that Bieber and his crew could watch the Super Bowl in East Rutherford.
According to the police report, Bieber and his father were “extremely abusive” to a flight attendant who had to hide in the pilot's cabin for much of the flight, notes NBC News.
“The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana,” stated the police report. “The captain also stated he needed to request that the passengers stop their harassing behavior toward the flight attendant and after several warnings asked the flight attendant to stay with him near the cockpit to avoid any further abuse.”
“The flight attendant stated the passengers, including Bieber and his father, Jeremy Bieber, were extremely abusive verbally and she would not work another flight with them,” said the police report.
In addition to safety issues, the pilots were worried about inhaling marijuana and failing any drug tests, which could endanger their licenses.
When the plane landed at Teterboro, it was met by DEA, Customs and Border Protection agents, drug-sniffing dogs and local police.
According to the police report, there was marijuana smoke inside the cabin, but no marijuana was found on the Meridian Air Charter plane.
When questioned by law enforcement, Bieber reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol.
The flight crew refused to file charges against Bieber, his father and his friends, who were allowed to leave.
On Sunday, Bieber was turned away the New York City club 1 OAK and several Super Bowl parties, noted the New York Daily News.
“While Bieber may be one of the biggest stars in the world, most clubs don’t want the hassle of having him inside anymore,” a nightlife source told the New York Daily News. “He is radioactive until he stops being so volatile. No one wants the bad press that follows him everywhere he goes.”
Even though the White House petition to deport Justin Bieber has already met its threshold of 100,000 signatures, Sen. Mark Warner said Tuesday he wanted to add his name to the list.
Warner repetaedly insisted that he had previously not known about the petition but would be willing to add his name.
“As a dad with three daughters, is there some place I can sign?” Warner said in an interview with Rumble in the Morning.
Warner then tweeted a link to the interview, noting that he was definitely not a Belieber.
More than 240,000 people have already signed the petition to deport the Canadian pop star, who was arrested in Florida on charges of a DUI and resisting arrest.
Opposing petitions to keep Bieber in the country have yet to reach the 100,000-signature threshold.
According to a 2013 survey from Public Policy Polling, working to deport Bieber is a smart move for someone running for reelection. The survey showed that 54 percent of voting-age Americans held an unfavorable view of the pop star.
Justin Bieber was not drag racing at the time of his arrest, according to TMZ.
The celebrity gossip website has claimed to have obtained the print-out of the GPS records from the Lamborghini Bieber and his friend rented. According to TMZ, the records would have shown a higher driving speed if the pop star had actually been drag racing.
Previously, Miami Beach police accused Bieber and his friend of speeding between 50 and 60 miles per hour. However, the GPS print-out suggests that the maximum speed Bieber reached was 44mph.
TMZ also noticed that if Bieber had been drag racing down the 3700 block of Pine Tree Drive, where the speed limit is 30mph, the GPS would have read higher than the recorded 27mph.
Additionally, the Escalade that was used allegedly to block the roads wasn’t registered to have stopped until Bieber was pulled over, therefore dismissing claims that it was used as a road barrier.
While this recent evidence could present a problem for prosecutors, there is still a clear report of Bieber’s intoxication while driving, which he will likely be charged for.
An online petition that emerged from the White House’s We the People campaign has demanded that Justin Bieber be deported because of his reckless and destructive behavior.
The petition has earned over 100,000 signatures, which means the White House must respond to it.
"Every petition that crosses the threshold will be reviewed by the appropriate staff and receive a response," a White House spokesperson told Mashable.
The petition states that the United States has been wrongly represented in the world of pop culture at the hands of Bieber. It requests that he be reported and that his green card be revoked.
“We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society,” it reads.
It is unlikely that the White House will respond to the petition any time soon, considering a petition to remove the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show from ABC network received a response after three months of its eligibility.
In response to the petition, Bieber fans wrote a petition pleading with the White House to keep the star in the U.S.
Pop singer Justin Bieber was arrested early yesterday morning for DUI, drag racing and resisting arrest in Miami Beach, Fla.
Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez said in a news conference that Bieber admitted to smoking marijuana, taking prescription medication and drinking while drag racing.
CNN reports today that three police officers, not involved in the Thursday arrest, were suspended because they allegedly gave Bieber a police escort to some strip clubs in South Florida on Monday.
But none of this news bothers Bieber's adoring female fans who have camped outside a $3000-a-night, five-bedroom, Miami mansion where he is staying (video below).
Many of the so-called "Beliebers" have defended the singer's alleged crimes as "mistakes" that everyone makes.
“I just wanna tell him how much I love him and give him a hug,” Bieber fan Ann Marie Rodriguez told CBS Miami.
“We're all human and he made a mistake and I think he knows that but we’re all still standing by him, right? Are we all standing by him?” Rodriguez asked the girls around her who yelled “Yeah!”
Instead of holding Bieber responsible for his actions, his fans blamed the media.
“There’s media, there’s paparazzi hunting him down when he’s just a normal 19-year-old kid trying to live his life and make music to make his fans happy and everyone’s just judging him,” added fan Rayana Barroso.
