You'd think Justin Bieber would say something. Then again, he may not be in the right frame of mind.
According to TMZ, Miley Cyrus is trying to put a stop to a new sick trend that's emerged on the Internet, involving self-described Justin Bieber fans cutting their bodies after seeing photos of the singer allegedly smoking pot.
The website reported Monday that the hashtag #cut4bieber has become the top U.S. trend on Twitter, after people began posting photos featuring bleeding arms, allegedly the result of "cutting" by disappointed fans looking to pressure the singer into giving up his pot habit.
Someone has even allegedly started a website encouraging Bieber fans to cut themselves and post photos of the carnage, until Bieber gives up marijuana for good.
On Monday, Cyrus weighed in on the troubling trend, retweeting a messaging saying "#cut4bieber? Cutting is NOT something to joke about. There are people who are actually suffering from self-harm, this is so disrespectful."
TMZ ran photos last week of Bieber, allegedly from a Jan. 2 party at a Newport Beach motel, in which Bieber seemed to be holding a smoldering blunt.
Sources at the party told TMZ that Bieber's buddy, rapper Lil Twist, was there too. He was allegedly with Bieber last week when a photographer was hit and killed while snapping pictures of Bieber's car in Southern California.
Bieber's people had no comment, according to TMZ. Sources supposedly told the website Twist and his brother were rolling all the blunts and smoking everyone up.
ANOTHER BOYFRIEND BITES THE DUST: No one saw this coming.
Taylor Swift has another ex-boyfriend to write songs about. After only two months of dating, Swift has tossed aside One Direction singer Harry Styles, according to multiple reports.
"They were on holiday and had an almighty row," a source told the Daily Mail, adding that the two young stars parted ways during their recent vacation to the British Virgin Islands after New Year's Day.
Swift, 23, and Styles, 18, spent Christmas apart, but rang in 2013 together in New York. They then jetted off for their romantic getaway, however their unexpected fight reportedly led Swift to cut the trip short and fly back to the States just three days after arriving on Jan. 4.
Styles, in the meantime, stayed behind and hung out with Virgin bigwig Richard Branson, who owns the private Necker Island nearby.
SEAN PARKER IS A DAD: Napster founder and Facebook billionaire Sean Parker, 33, became a first-time father on Sunday, Jan. 6, when fiancee Alexandra Lenas gave birth to a baby girl, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
The couple named their new daughter Winter Victoria Parker.
Parker announced the couple was expecting back in September. A rep for the Facebook founding president -- immortalized onscreen by Justin Timberlake in the 2010 Oscar-winning film "The Social Network" -- told Us at the time that the couple was "very happy and really looking forward to what the new year will bring."
Parker proposed to Lenas in February 2011. They plan to wed sometime this year.
Parker founded the peer-to-peer music file-sharing service Napster in 1999, when he was just 19 years old. In 2004, he joined forces with Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg and became the first president of the social-networking site. After stepping down from that position in 2005, he became involved with the Founders Fund, a San Francisco-based venture capital firm. He's currently a backer for the music-streaming service Spotify. So, basically, he's still got more money than the rest of us.
