Justin Bieber sparked yet another controversy over the weekend for posing with a cigarette in an Instagram photo he shared. "This is James Dean inspired. Don't ask me if I smoke ciggys cuz I don't," he wrote in the caption. The singer turned 20 this month, and even though he's been getting a lot of heat for his outrageous behavior lately, he seems pretty determined to brush off his critics. In a recent radio interview with Power 106, he said, "I'm 19 — I'm gonna make mistakes. It's inevitable."
