What happened at Justin Bieber’s birthday party?

On March 1, Justin Bieber celebrated his 29th birthday with a lavish celebration. What made headlines was the singer’s unexpected gifts to his guests, and many people thought he was making fun of his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.

Alfredo Flores, the music video director who previously collaborated with Justin, shared the photo of the present as his Instagram story, which Justin Bieber submitted was a silver lighter that had a cowboy hat on it.

There were lyrics written saying, “I’m so thankful I didn’t end up like this, which is what I thought I wanted,” which gave the Calm Down singer a serious blow.

Some users believe that the statement was intended for Gomez due to her current conflict with Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Bieber.
