Justin Bieber is still with his Beliebers. A day after his DUI arrest on Thursday, Jan. 23, the global pop star took to his Twitter to address concerned fans.

"YOU ARE ALL WORTHY NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS," the 19-year-old "Heartbreaker" singer wrote. Bieber then alluded to a Bible verse: "BE STRONG GOD IS WITH US ALL," he wrote. "MY BELIEBERS CHANGED MY LIFE> I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL."

According to the police report obtained by Us Weekly, officials smelled "an odor of alcohol emanating from the driver's breath"; the arresting officer also said the teen cussed repeatedly as he resisted arrest.

Hours after his arrest, Bieber made a solemn appearance in court wearing an orange jumpsuit, where his bond was set at $2,500. After being released from jail, the teen sensation was photographed on the roof of his car waving at the crowd gathered outside.

On Friday, Bieber posted a split-screen Instagram photo of the aforementioned moment, comparing himself to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

"What more can they say," he said in the caption.

Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, also broke his silence Friday, Jan. 24 and wrote a direct tweet at the Canadian talent: "@justinbieber love you and I will act in the manner of someone who truly cares," he wrote. "That is all I have to say. Thanks for all those concerned." 

"Been a long day," Braun continued. "Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad."

Bieber, on his end, has addressed his scandals as part of growing up: "I'm young and I make mistakes. That's part of growing up," he told Us Weekly last March. I mess up sometimes, but I learn from my mistakes."

"I'm a good person and I have a big heart," he continued. "I love God, and I'm grateful for the blessings he has given me. I don't plan on wasting the opportunity. At the same time, I'm young and I want to have fun. I don't think there is anything wrong with that."
