Justin Bieber is releasing a new album for the first time in a few years on November 13. The issue? One Direction is releasing their new album on the same day. Justin decided to say something about it on Snapchat, and Louis Tomlinson (kinda) hit back at him. Meanwhile, Justin drank and lit up a joint onstage Down Under: is he back to his misbehaving ways again?
Justin decided to address the fact that his album and One Direction’s were dropping on the same day with this Snapchat video:

I’m guessing Justin’s face is supposed to convey the fear and terror that he thinks One Direction should be feeling? RELATED: Louis Tomlinson posted his own Snapchat video. He didn’t directly address Justin’s comments. To give Louis’s video some context, however: the London 02 is a world-famous venue, and One Direction sold out SIX shows there. Pretty impressive!

It’ll be interesting to see how these albums do head-to-head. Justin hasn’t released a new album in a few years. The question is: how many of his fans are still interested after all this time and, especially, after all of his bad behavior? One Direction has a pretty rabid fan base at the moment, and this may very well be their last album together: they’re taking a long hiatus starting next March. I’m sure we’ll be hearing sales numbers pretty soon after these releases.
Meanwhile, Justin seems to be up to his old antics despite all of his protestations about “growing up” and “being the man he wants to be.” He smoked a joint onstage as well as took a few swigs from a bottle while performing onstage Down Under. The singer reportedly did it on a dare, but shouldn’t he be mature enough to realize that’s not a good idea to do even on a dare after all of his issues? Not exactly mature behavior there.
