Justin Bieber Hits Photographer With Car Driving From Church – Rolling Stone

Justin Bieber’s car struck a photographer in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The minor accident comes after the singer canceled the remaining dates on his Purpose World Tour. “I’m sorry for anyone who feels, like, disappointed or betrayed, it’s not in my heart,” he said. He was also banned from performing in China, which refused to allow him to enter the country on the grounds that he was a “badly behaved entertainer.”

For several weeks this summer, Bieber was a featured vocalist on the two biggest songs in the United States, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” and DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One.” Those songs remain at Number One and Number Four, respectively, this week.

But, as we approach another Fourth of July, the question in the States is still open-ended: What is the Greatest American Rock ‘n’ Roll Band?

After all, it was our music, pioneered in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s by the likes of Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bill Haley and Elvis Presley. They invented it and stepped aside while the form went to a new level with the next generations.
