Justin Bieber

Shades of Michael Jackson

1/24/2014 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0124-justin-mj-Getty-01
Justin Bieber is suffering from the same delusion that Michael Jackson once embraced -- putting on a false air of confidence when behind the scenes their lives are falling apart.

You'll recall the scene with MJ back in 2004 ... after his arraignment on child molestation charges.  Michael famously jumped on his SUV and waived and smiled, trying to convince everyone things were ok.

Justin did the same thing Thursday as he left jail ... after being busted for DUI and resisting arrest.

As much as both of them protested ... Michael and Justin had the same Achilles' heel -- drugs.  Michael was hooked on a pharmacy of prescription drugs, and Justin has an enormous problem with sizzurp.

It didn't end well for Michael.  It's not too late for Justin.

Yeah but MJ is dead and lost all his money. That's why he had to do This Is It Tour. Does this kid need to follow that. Get help!

The saga continues. He thinks he is invincible, but his day IS coming. I guess he had to hop on top of the car, as he's too short for anyone to see him otherwise.

They need to deport him and get it over with. This kid has had multiple run ins with law enforcement and has attacked cameramen. Not turning this into a racial thing, but if the dude was mexican and did what justin did and he was a resident they would of pulled his residency card and deported him asap! We dont need people like this messing up our youth. Our kids try to mimic these people, their definition of cool varies, I guess

You're REALLY reaching now, TMZ. Comparing this little s~~t stain to MJ in ANY way is a serious insult to MJ's memory.

This punk isn't fit to lick the skid marks out of MJs toilet!

Yes, but Bieber is a boy who does drugs, and MJ was a druggie who did boys.

Is the estate paying TMZ to keep that pervert in the news? What an irresponsible comparison.
