It looked like Justin Bieber was in trouble with the police earlier this week.

However it was just a misunderstanding, and a quite amusing one at that.


While out and about Wednesday, the pop star was stopped by a police officer. The cop was concerned about the singer's sneakers.

Bieber was wearing limited edition Nike Air Max 90, part of a collaboration with the Off-White brand. The sold out shoe includes a white zip tie looped through the laces, giving the appearance of a security tag.

You can see where this is going.




It was pretty convincing, apparently.

Bieber began the Instagram story where he talked about the encounter with this:

"Virgil, my God, bro. You're freaking β€” you're killing me, man,"

Virgil Abloh is the founder of Off-White and helped design the shoes.

Bieber continued describing the encounter, saying:

"I had to tell him, 'Bro, it's just fashion."

The cop wasn't so easily convinced.

"I don't know. He's like, 'It sure looks like a security tag.'"

It's a pretty understandable mistake, right?

"I'm like, 'Nah, bro, you can check it out.' It looks like it though… but you're getting me in trouble!"

Honestly, how different is this from leaving the tags on clothes?






The shoes were part of a limited edition run. While they initially retailed for $160, they're found on the second hand market for a few hundred more.

Bieber and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, are both big fans of Off-White and its designer, Abloh.

Though maybe next time they can get something that doesn't give the impression it's stolen.

I mean, you had to have known the kind of reaction this would get.




Bieber has his own clothing brand he should have stuck with wearing.

Drew House launched in January with shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants, emblazoned with his logo.

The pieces quickly sold-out.

There are basic life lessons that are life-saving and cost-effective that we are all intimidated by but, in actuality, they take all of a few minutes to acquire. We all condition ourselves to believe that certain skills in life are just too complex for regular joes to master. The truth is... you do not need an Ivy League degree to learn how to clean out the water heater, clip your pet's nails, or change out a toilet. Who knew? So many of us have been forced to acquire new skills while we've been trapped at home and we're going to be better off for it.

Redditor u/goodspeed19 wanted to know what lessons we should all be learning while stuck in quarantine that will make us more useful in the future by asking..... What's a skill you can learn in 30 minutes to one hour that is extremely useful/cool?

When I was heading into high school from middle my guidance counselor and my parents wanted me to enter into "gifted" classes because I was able to maintain a high GPA. They thought it would give me a head start for a great college and then prime me for the Presidency. I protested and negotiated signing up for merely "advanced" classes, God forbid I go with "regular" classes, or we all just get the same education. I have never regretted it.

The real world is a harsh place. We don't learn that soon enough. When we're younger we believe everything is possible and whatever it is that we want to do for a living is going to be a success. So we head off to school to procure that dream and in school we learn all we can and the dream grows bigger.

Then a little while after graduation, many people realize, the dream is a fantasy and the major they chose maybe more problematic than bountiful. Not many companies are looking for experts in socioeconomic post Russian literature. So maybe a few plans.

Redditor u/Mahimah wanted the post college peeps out there to share with us, tell us which degrees may not be the most fruitful in the world. They asked.... College grads who discovered too late that your major is useless in the real world, what do you do now?
