Lady Gaga, Scooter Braun Support Bieber After Arrest
Mother Monster asks her fans to help his Beliebers after yesterdays events...
As we previously reported, Miami Beach Police booked the Baby singer on suspicion of DUI, drag racing, driving with an expired licence and resisting arrest after he was caught speeding in a rented Lamborghini.
After receiving criticism online from the likes of Seth Rogen and former neighbour, NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, Lady G took to LittleMonsters.com to encourage her fans to trend the topic #MonstersSupportBeliebers on Twitter.
Gaga wrote: "Hey monsters. I know everyone today is taking about Justin's arrest and all sorts of words and judgements are happening on the Internet.
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and to stand up for themselves, but I think we should be supportive of Beliebers. They deserve, just like any other fan, to feel strong for each other and Justin so they can continue to share the bond they have through music."

She continued: "We may not understand everything celebrities do because there's only so much we see, but Justin and Beliebers were 'born this way' too.
"Let's spread love and compassion to Beliebers today. That is what we are all about. Can you trend #MonstersSupportBeliebers?"
JB's manager Scooter Braun also broke his silence on Twitter to show support for his protégé, writing: "@justinbieber love you and i will act in the manner of someone who truly cares. that is all I have to say. thanks for all those concerned."

He later added: "Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad."
Justin has since appeared in court and was released on bail after posting $2,500 set by a judge, $1,000 for each of the charges of resisting arrest and DUI, and $500 for the licence charge.
Since his arrest, his fans have been busy trending the hashtags #WeWillAlwaysSupportYouJustin and #FreeBieber on Twitter.
