Justin Bieber

Party With Me ...

I Own You

1/7/2013 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_JUSTIN_BIEBER_COMPOSITE3Justin Bieber's people have smartly tried to contain the teenage singer's hijinks by attempting to make it clear to anyone who parties with him ... any pictures snapped are automatically the property of Justin. 

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Justin's people routinely place a sign in places where Justin parties -- a sign that says any and all photos taken at the party do NOT belong to the people who took them -- they all belong to JB.

It's a literal and figurative sign of the concern Justin's people are showing for a famous teenager with a penchant for risk-taking.

As for the photos taken last week in that Newport Beach Hotel room showing Justin smoking a blunt, our sources say if there was a sign it wasn't obvious ... because the people who took pictures saw nothing.

In addition to signage, we're told Justin's security people are supposed to "manage" private situations like the one in the hotel room, but apparently security didn't do its job ... or they've been co-opted by Justin.

If you want to party in private then simply say no cameras allowed but when you start pulling out the blunts of course those "friends" around you are going to secretly snap photos of you because that's money in their pocket. Anyways, the kid is just doing what any other normal human being does or has done. As for this photo rule...deal with it like EVERY other celeb has. You are no better. These little diva antics only make your a$$ seem a bit more fruity.

My guess is security didn't manage the situation because your source was not conspicuously snapping pictures . Notice how nobody in the photos is posing or seems to be aware that they're on camera. Where the subject has an expectation of privacy (e.g. Private party), publishing photos taken unbeknownst to them is an invasion f privacy that crosses the line between what's accepted (e.g. Taking photos if celebs in public WITHOUT endangering their lives, your photogs lives, or the lives of 3rd persons) and this. Truly disappointed - not in Biebet unless he was smoking around that bballer's kid- but in TMZ.

Somebody at Justin's party- obviously ignored the signs and took pictures with their own camera; meaning they own the photos- not the spoiled Justin Bieber! They wanted to let the world know that Justin smokes drugs, drink's and is not the clean cut, angel; pop star that people think!

He is pot smoker and on a dark path, if he doesn't smarten up..

Well, this is just a rumor to me. I'm sure a lot of people will be bashing Bieber for this sign thing, but I doubt he thought it up or even knows about it.


Justin take pics with his fans all the time. What would these signs say ... NOTICE: Any photos taken of Justin Bieber doing anything illegal or morally questionable are property of Justin Bieber ... please hand over your expensive cameras or cell phones to security as you leave the party!"


LOL! Never going to work! Privacy is a thing of the past for all of us. The only way to have a stellar reputation is to never do anything illegal or morally questionable. I only know one being that can claim that ... my cat!

Well, I hope they had a sign in sheet at the door and when they sign in they have to sign in their cell numbers and the security has to check and the people at the door has the show their cells.
Or will in the future.

The pix show everything on it anyway so they can go to the person.

Anyone that takes the chance to NARK or RAT OUT on ANYONE is the LOWEST form of BOTTOM FEEDER and everyone knows this. The s*** that sold out must have been a desperate drug addict to be willing to be exiled forever from future rappers, artists, etc for life.... the idiot.
