Justin Bieber defends dungaree decision

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has defended his move to meet the Canadian Prime Minister in his overalls.

The 18-year-old star greeted politician Stephen Harper in the casual outfit choice on Friday in Ottawa and was subsequently labelled "white trash" by a journalist.

The teenage heartthrob hit back by explaining the circumstances surrounding his denim dungarees on Instagram.

"The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where I was performing at that day (sic)," he wrote, according to Entertainment Tonight.

"I walked straight from my meet and greet to him. It wasn't like it was like I was going into his environment we were at a hockey arena. Wow am I ever white trash (sic)."

The Beauty and a Beat singer also took the opportunity to post a snap of the meeting on his Twitter account.

In the picture Justin is shown in the loose-fitting smock, as he and Stephen give the camera a thumbs up.

"I met the Prime Minister in overalls lol (sic)," he captioned the photograph.

The young star has hit headlines recently due to his supposed split from fellow singer Selena Gomez.

The two are said to have broken up due to Justin's flirtations with models at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show earlier this month.

In an interview with TV host Oprah Winfrey aired over the weekend, Justin gushed about his relationship with the 22-year-old.

"I am all about really genuine people and I feel like she's one of the most genuine people," he fondly told Oprah.

Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
