Looks like that nefarious troublemaker (oops, we mean international pop superstar) Justin Bieber is facing yet another scandal. On Sunday, U.S. border authorities found marijuana on board one of the singer's tour buses as it attempted to enter the country from Canada. According to USA Today, Bieber was not on the bus, and the driver was issued a civil penalty before he and the passengers were permitted to continue.
But this is not the first time that drugs have been found on the pop sensation's tour bus. Back in April, Swedish police discovered a small amount of pot and a stun gun on board when he was in Stockholm for a performance.
Bieber is also not the first celebrity to get caught up in this kind of drug smuggling scandal. In March, a small amount of marijuana was found on one of Rihanna's tour buses when they were searched at the Canadian border. The pot belonged to an unidentified passenger who receieved a civil penalty.
In October 2012, sheriffs discovered heroin, marijuana, and a loaded gun on Nelly's tour bus at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, and in January of the same year, officers at the same checkpoint found marijuana cigarettes on Snoop Dogg's bus. Snoop was arrested, but Nelly let one of his staffers take the fall. Willie Nelson, Fiona Apple, and Armie Hammer have also been arrested for drug possession while driving through Sierra Blanca, Texas.
Come on, celebs, how many times do you need to hear this to get it through your heads? When you cross borders, police will search your vehicle, so don't drive around with illegal narcotics in your possession. And don't think that stashing it in your pocket or finding a great hiding place will help. They have dogs, too. Don't be dumb. And at the very least, don't ever drive through Sierra Blanca, Texas.

What’s all this about milkshakes? Over the weekend, milkshakes became the subject of ire and protest in Bahrain. But the protesters weren’t a gaggle of lactose intolerant consumers worried that the effect of the delicious treat (something some folks might call Sweet Mucus) would disrupt their constitutions. They were actually protesting the celebrity paid to promote the milkshakes in question: Kim Kardashian, according to CNN. The star arrived in the city as part of a tour of the Middle East in an effort to promote the food chain Millions of Milkshakes. Kardashian was greeted by a large band of protesters; a local paper reported that it got so bad, the Kardashian-detractors were allegedly tear-gassed. However, the owner of Millions of Milkshakes, Sheeraz Hasan, tweeted his denial of the described opposition: “WHAT PROTESTS?? Kim Kardashian loved by the people of Bahrain & wants to return!!” No proof of the gassing has emerged, but the protesters have been photographed. Clearly, Kardashian’s presence was not a welcome one, at least to a few folks, in Bahrain. Yes, Kim K may be able to bridge the gap between rap music lovers and celebrity gossip fiends, thanks to her hallowed union with Kanye West, but she can’t win everyoneover. But she shouldn’t worry. There are plenty of other celebs who have outworn their welcome all over the world. You’re in good company, Kimmie. Sienna Miller, Exiled from Sh**sburgh When working on a film in Pittsburgh, back in 2006, the actress told Rolling Stone, “Can you believe this is my life? Will you pity me when you're back in your funky New York apartment and I'm still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films.” Needless to say, the people of Pittsburgh were doing their best, premonitory McKayla Maroney impressions. UK to Chris Brown: Go Ahead, Try and Sell Your Albums Here In September, Chris Brown’s album was found with a rather pointed warning label: “WARNING/DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM/THIS MAN BEATS WOMEN.” Leave it to the Brits not to mince words. Of course, the stickers were likely placed on the CDs by activists, because you'd be hard pressed to find a music merchant actively try not to sell those piles of CDs in this digital-music-dominated world. Rosie O’Donnell Has to Cruise Right Around Bermuda In 2007, Rosie O’Donnell organized a cruise for gay and lesbian families, but was forced to quickly change course when the threat of religious protests in Bermuda arose. In an effort to continue the tone of acceptance, O’Donnell and the cruise line wisely decided to change course for friendlier ports. Kelly Clarkson’s Smoke Ignites a Fire in Indonesia Jakarta was the site of protest when singer Kelly Clarkson scheduled a concert sponsored by a cigarette company. Fans and anti-tobacco activists protested the show, but Clarkson still managed to deliver a show for her fans. But no matter how hard she sang the hits, she undoubtedly angered a few could-be fans. Amanda Bynes, Please Leave Us Alone - Love, the Roads of America After Bynes went on a mind-boggling auto-mishap spree in September, the DMV finally did drivers and pedestrians everywhere a solid: they suspended her driver’s license. Consider yourself ex-communicated from the driving community, Miss Bynes. Jeremy Renner, You Should Probably Stay Out of Phuket This wasn’t exactly Renner’s fault, but it couldn’t hurt for him to steer clear of the famed Thailand playground. He was present during a bloody, vicious fight at the Thai resort in Phuket. His publicist denied his involvement, but while the manager of the resort was stabbed, Renner was the one making headlines. Perhaps he should try somewhere a little less traumatic for his next vacation. I hear Disney World has great vacation packages this time of year… Celebs Who Like to Toke, Avoid West Texas, Please When someone like Willie Nelson, one of the most famous stoners alive, gets picked up for marijuana possession, you take notice. When Armie Hammer, a man who’s so well-kempt you’d think he’d get drunk off of whiskey fumes faster than Mitt Romney, gets picked up for the same thing, you start to wonder what’s going on in West Texas. And when Fiona Apple gets nabbed in the same region for a little hash, you throw your hands up and wonder just how bored those West Texas cops are. Celebs, if you must toke, don’t do it in West Texas anymore. Deal? Your Wares Are Not Wanted in Mecca, Paris When Paris Hilton opened a boutique in the Mecca Mall in Saudi Arabia, many Muslims took to Twitter, expressing issue with a woman who became famous from a sex tape selling her goods (purses and accessories, not thosegoods) in the holy city. Hilton clearly didn’t understand or feel the heat. She promptly tweeted that Mecca was “loving my beautiful new store.” Madonna’s Self-Loving Dance Moves Incur Rare Canadian Rage When Madonna added a performance element to her Blond Ambition tour in 1990, she actually angered Canadians. The notoriously easygoing country was in a bit of a tizzy over Madonna’s performance of “Like a Virgin,” which included the simulation of masturbation. Luckily for Madonna, she refused to cut the number and the Canadian police were just like, “Oh, okay then.” Follow Kelsea on Twitter @KelseaStahler [Photo Illustration by Hollywood.com; Photo Credits: WENN (3); Merino/INFphoto; Hudspeth County Sheriff] More: Kim Kardashian Pulls a Sarah Palin, Poses With Gun Kim Kardashian Prepares for Motherhood by Freezing Her Eggs Kim Kardashian Plays Dress Up as Sophia Loren — PICS

A Colorado audience was disappointed to learn that legendary folk and country musician Willie Nelson would not be taking the stage at a Denver Dumb Friends League animal shelter benefit on Saturday. NBC News affiliate KUSA-TV reports that just before Nelson was scheduled to perform at the Castle Pines Village, Colo. venue, representatives of the organization informed attendees that the singer/songwriter had been experiencing difficulties breathing, and as a result would have to cancel his show.
The announcement elaborated that Nelson, 79, was "suffering from breathing problems due to the high altitude and emphysema," and that he had been escorted to a local hospital. Hollywood.com has reached out to Nelson's reps for an update.
Nelson has been an active performer for almost 60 years, and has expressed intention to continue playing for audiences for the rest of his life. As it stands, Nelson is scheduled to perform at the Dallas, Texas establishment the House of Blues on Tuesday.
