Justin Bieber odds-on favourite to serve jail time, cry on Oprah and star in Fast & Furious
Or so say the bookies, who fancy Bieber’s chances of landing himself a lengthy jail sentence after his recent spate of arrests
Justin Bieber is highly likely to serve more than 28 days behind bars in 2014, say the bookies, who fancy Bieber’s chances of landing himself a lengthy jail sentence after his recent spate of arrests at 14/1.
Labelling "music’s number one twerp" the "bloke with the most punchable face in showbiz", Irish bookmakers Paddy Power have none-the-less successfully capitalised on the pop star’s shortcomings, which saw him briefly remanded in custody on Thursday morning for alleged drag racing, DUI, driving with an expired licence and resisting arrest.
"Do the right thing and throw away the key (to his car, of course)," a Paddy Power spokesman said, before offering up 8/1 odds that Bieber is deported back to Canada, 4/1 that he’ll wind up bawling into Oprah’s lap in a teary televised confessional and 33/1 that he’ll star in the forthcoming Fast & Furious movie.
Ambitious odds of 66/1 have been placed on Bieber ditching the entertainment industry to become a Formula 1 driver and 10/1 that he’ll ditch the entertainment industry entirely and just retire.
If he does land himself behind bars, however, we might not be spared his music. Odds of 33/1 are on offer that the star will ‘do a Johnny Cash’ and debut an album from prison by the end of 2017.
He is, however, highly unlikely to wind up in Guantanamo Bay at 250/1.
Bieber was bailed for $2,500 yesterday, after the star appeared in front of a judge via a video link.
He was criticised for his failure to take the incident seriously after he was photographed triumphantly waving to fans as he left the jail shrouded in an oversized black hoodie and a pair of dark sunglasses.
Others have called into question who should be held responsible for the teen, who, at 19, is still considered a minor in need of adult supervision in the United States.
