(Newser) – Is Justin Bieber losing it? The 19-year-old went on an epic, 13-tweet rant yesterday, slamming the "rumors rumors and more rumors" and the "fake stories" made up about him by the media, the Huffington Post reports. The Twitter meltdown (click to read it in full) came at the end of a very bad few days for Bieber: Not only was he booed for showing up late to a concert, he also recently whined about having the "worst birthday" and was advised to "put your [bleeping] shirt on" by Olivia Wilde, after he was pictured shirtless in London. (He's also been pictured wearing a gas mask out and about in London.)

Things have gotten so bad that Perez Hilton is reporting Selena Gomez was the only thing keeping Bieber in check; Radar quotes a Gomez pal as calling him a "toxic toddler"; People recently ran the headline, "We Need to Talk About Justin Bieber's Pants"; and the Guardian offers up five signs that the pop star "could be losing it." Among them: He was recently photographed holding what appeared to be a joint; he's putting out an acoustic album ("a reliable signifier of imminent Oblivion," writes Peter Robinson); and, as evidenced by a line from his "Boyfriend" single, he likes fondue.
