Pop star LADY GAGA has urged her fans to show their support for JUSTIN BIEBER following his sensational arrest on Thursday (23Jan13).
Bieber has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after he was caught drag racing in Miami Beach, Florida and is now free on bail after making a brief appearance before a judge.
Poker Face star Gaga has since reached out to her fans urging them to support Bieber and his followers, known as Beliebers, during this difficult time.
In a message posted on her official website, Littlemonsters.com, Gaga writes, "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.
"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."
Bieber was freed on bail on charges of DUI, driving without a valid license, and resisting arrest without violence.
