This week, photos leaked of a naked Justin Bieber serenading his grandma for her birthday with only a guitar covering up his Justin Jr. It was, umm, weird. But just another dot on the timeline that is Bieber's 2013. He's been acting out a lot this year and we're not sure why. It might be the breakup with Selena Gomez. Or maybe he's starting to crack from the pressures of stardom like so many child stars before him. Or maybe he's just hanging out with Lil Twist too much.
Or maybe, just maybe, he's a 19-year-old kid doing the dumb shit every 19-year-old kid does—except there's a gang of photographers stalking him just waiting for him to slip up so they can broadcast it to the entire world. Maybe.
Still, we're rooting for the little homie who graced our 10th anniversary cover in 2012. We hope he gets his act together. But we're not too worried. When he grows up, he'll look back at this time and laugh. But for now, check out A Recent History of Justin Bieber's Most Badass Moments.

Yells "I'll Beat the Fuck out of You" at Paparazzi
Date: March 8
We can totally understand going off on the paparazzi (so can Kanye). Those people are the worst. But Bieber yelling, "I'll beat the fuck out of you" is the least credible threat in music since Drake threatened to catch a body in "Headlines."

Pisses in a Mop Bucket, Says "Fuck Bill Clinton"
Date: July 10
Location: New York City
Surely you've seen the video where Bieber pisses in a mop bucket on his way out of the club and then stops at a photo of our 42nd president to exclaim, "Fuck Bill Clinton." Justin, who was born a year into Clinton's presidency, would later apologize to the former President. However, he never apologized to whoever had to clean up the piss-filled bucket. Anthony Bourdain, being the badass he is, tweeted, "The chef should have put his foot up this young punk's ass." It's hard to disagree with that.

Goes to Detroit, Messes Up Most Famous Song of City's Most Famous Rapper
Date: July 28
We all slip sometimes. Nobody's perfect. But dude, you can't mess up the lyrics to "Lose Yourself" in the city that worships Eminem. Especially on the first bar. Bieber was trying to give a nod to Eminem when he mistakenly rapped, "His palms are heavy" instead of the correct lyric, "His palms are sweaty." B-Rabbit would not approve.
