Justin Bieber is 18, a high school graduate, and a homeowner. Lately, it seems like it's the pop star's main mission to assert his independence and live by his own rules. But some recent reports are suggesting that he might be forgetting that others have to live with him, too.
While on a 12-hour flight from Australia to Los Angeles, Bieber and his entourage settled into first class and, according to some accounts, got a little boisterous. Maybe it was a case of "boys will be boys," and sitting in one spot for 12 hours can make anyone go a little loopy. However, the rest of the Air New Zealand passengers apparently weren't very pleased with Bieber's use of certain four-letter words that aren't "baby," "love," "girl," or "0hhh."
One woman in particular, who had her two young children on board with her, approached the singer and scolded him for his "inappropriate" behaviour. Still a Canadian boy at heart, Bieber quickly apologized and promised to cut it out. One thing's true: He still respects his elders.

But it's not only us "regular" folk that Bieber is rubbing the wrong way -- his celebrity neighbours are getting a bit irked, as well. Bieber is currently renting the house behind betrothed actors Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, and while Shepard at first was excited to get a more serious case of Bieber Fever, the infatuation has since dissipated.
"The music and the parties and the paparazzi, I mean, it's like living in Lebanon now," Shepard told "The View" while promoting the couple's film "Hit & Run." However, Bell diplomatically admitted that they weren't sure exactly which house was causing the commotion.
"We just know since he moved in, the music has been blaring," she said.

We're not excusing an excessive rock-star lifestyle from the teen, but with the kind of money, fame, and privilege Bieber has experienced in his relatively short time on this planet, it's easy to understand how he would have a hard time settling into domestic life.
Maybe if Dax and Kristen went over to visit Bieber in person, bringing a "Welcome to the neighbourhood" gift basket or a homemade lasagna with them, he'd listen to their complaints. Or maybe Bieber should just invite them to the party next time -- it's hard to be mad at a commotion that you're a part of!
