Justin Bieber faces hard time in Atlanta



Justin Bieber will face some very angry neighbours if he decides to move to an affluent Atlanta-area community.

As word spreads that the legally-challenged pop star may be shopping for mansions in Buckhead, its community group staged a protest last Monday.

“Justin Bieber’s relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community,” the Buckhead Neighbourhood Coalition wrote on Facebook.

It continued, “Some can’t even let their children play in the driveway without fear; he has raced vehicles under the influence, before. What’s to say he won’t do it again? As a home owner down the street from this residence, one can assume many people will be contacting real estate agents soon enough.”

At the time this article was posted, more than 120 people signed on to attend a protest Monday morning in front of a property that’s currently for sale and possibly being eyed by Bieber.

It’s tough to argue that Bieber would be a good addition to the community. He’s reportedly charged with a felony after throwing eggs at a neighbour’s home in Calabasas, Calif., which caused more than $20,000 worth of damage. He’s also battling DUI charges in Florida.

But, a few Atlanta residents are sticking up for the pop star.

“This is ridiculous. Leave him alone, he’d be a fine neighbour,” wrote David Lilenfeld in response to the Facebook posting. “I’m a resident of Buckhead, and he is welcome here. I know (unfortunately) plenty of neighbours with DUIs, they just aren’t famous so it doesn’t make the news and so you don’t know about them.”

Atlanta resident Adam Gibson pointed out, “Rock Band the Black Crowes lived on Blackland, bothered no one and they were potheads. Bieber won’t bother anyone.”

Since appearing on the cover of Forbes last year, the Canadian crooner has toured the world, picked up another 20 million Twitter followers and earned another $58 million (that sum would have been even higher if he hasn’t been credited with a double-digit million-dollar merchandise advance last year). With stakes in startups including Enflick, Tinychat and Spotify, he shows no signs of slowing down.

The singer now lives and works in Atlanta, and is in a relationship with 19-year-old actress and teenage singing sensation Selena Gomez, and both are often spotted holidaying and publicly spending intimate moments together.

Los Angeles mansion

Justin Bieber who turned 18 years two years ago gifted himself a lavish mansion worth $10.8 million. He has been investing his big bucks in real estate since last year. The lavish mansion is located in a posh locality of Los Angeles.

The house is built in three stories and boasts 5-bedroom and 8-bathrooms. The property comes with an exclusively designed gourmet kitchen, bar area, private theatre personal gym massage room and a stunning infinity pool.

The house also boasts a breathtaking view of lake that can clearly be seen from the glass walls of the house. Situated on the Hollywood Hills, the house has a floating dining room area that opens to stunning views.

New York mansion

Apart from gifting himself a luxurious mansion on his 18th birthday, Justin Bieber also owns a luxury condo in New York. This bachelor’s pad was a perfect gift from his grandmother and mother for his 16th birthday. At $1.7 million, the house is not the priciest but still a luxury for a 20-year-old.

The house is spread in the area of 2,400 square foot and boasts three-bedroom and four-bathroom. The house is lavishly decorated and is decked in shining white marble flooring all over. The modern kitchen with all the facilities is designed by using ebony hardwood. The bachelor’s pad also has a built in wet bar with wine fridge. The living room of the house overlooks the view of the entire city.

Also, Bieber has recently closed a deal in which he bought a 1.28-acre Hacienda-style home in Calabasas, California. The singing heartthrob bought the property for a hefty sum. The pricey estate once belonged to actor Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife “Nicole” and was listed in market for $6 million.

Featuring a Hacienda-style, the beautiful home includes six comfy bedrooms, seven exotic bathrooms, a well equipped spacious kitchen, a mammoth living room and two separate garages. The home also includes marvelously designed staircases, a detached casita, six fireplaces, an elevator, a gorgeous pool and a spa. Bieber has plans to add up a private theatre and game room for recreation at his plush home.

Bieber’s collection of supercars

The teen sensation owns some of the most luxurious cars and is often spotted in his Porsche 997 Turbo. The car is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model and was sold between 2005 and 2011. The car is powered by 3.6-litre boxer engine, can reach 200 km/h mark in 12.8 seconds, and is the most commercially successful 911 of all time which is treasured by many rich and famous.

He also rides a stylish Ferrari F430 that he bought when he was just 16. The sports car that was produced by the Italian automaker Ferrari from 2004 to 2009 is a successor to the Ferrari 360. Bieber’s car is metallic brown in colour and runs on 4.3L V8 petrol engine derived from a shared Ferrari/Maserati design. The F430’s standard 19-inch wheels wore different sizes of rubber front-to-rear for enhanced stickiness.

Last year, he dished out over $160,000 on a customised Range Rover Evoque. This is a complete customised car fitted with a sound system worth over $80,000. The interior of the car has been designed by the singer himself. Right fromleather interior to crazy paintwork and a hi-po Cosworth engine, everything has been chosen by the pop star himself. His electric blue colour car has convenience of five-door form.

This 18-year-old pop sensation stops at nothing less than what he exactly wants. So what if it meant putting the Cadillac to the extreme torture of being repainted from red to all black and getting suicide doors, personal logos and crystal-blue LED headlights.

To the disappointment of auto aficionados, the Cadillac which is considered America’s best ass-kicking luxury coupe looks more like another Batmobile gimmick. However, the ‘Biebermania’ ensures that whatever he does becomes a national obsession, whether for good or bad. However the car’s specs have been left untouched. Customised by West Coast Customs for their show on the Velocity cable network, Bieber’s Cadillac doors open themselves by touching a special “JB” badge with a black-crystal version on the dash. The interiors have been reworked in purple which is Bieber’s trademark colour.  Ryan Friedlinghaus, the CEO of West Coast Customs, has called the end result “the sickest CTS-V on Earth.”

Bieber also owns a white Ferrari 458 Italia. The 458 Italia is one of the most exotic vehicles from Ferrari and it sports a top speed of 214 MPH.

The interior of the vehicle features detailed use of leather with broad yet sober stitches and the vehicle sports all the latest gadgets that boys like to play with, including Satellite Navigation, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Cell phone connectivity, etc.
