Justin Bieber apologizes to Bill Clinton

Justin Bieber is cleaning up his act after his recent Clinton-bashing, cleaning fluid tirade was revealed on tape.

After a video emerged this week showing Bieber spraying blue cleaner fluid on a photo of the former president and saying "F*** Bill Clinton," the pop star reached out to apologize (and then, of course, tweeted about it later).

Bieber called and made amends with former President Bill Clinton, which a Clinton aide confirmed, and then tweeted about the conversation Wednesday night: "@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr. President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy."

The video, posted by TMZ, captures Bieber urinating in a mop bucket as he exits a nightclub through a restaurant kitchen. The clip then shows the 19-year-old performer using what looks like cleaning liquid to spray a poster of Clinton as the Canadian singer shouts the expletive about the former president. The incident reportedly happened in New York City earlier this year.

And Clinton, 66, apparently had no hard feelings. A source told E! News that he said something along the lines of: "If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well." And it didn't hurt that Bieber offered to help out with the Clinton Global Initiative as well.
