Diva: Justin Bieber stepped out yesterday sporting a T-shirt which read 'Doing real stuff sucks'
He was catapulted into stardom at the tender age of 14, so Justin Bieber never had to make a living doing anything other than his dream.
And the 18-year-old made something of a statement about his good fortune yesterday with a T-shirt that played up to his diva reputation.
The Boyfriend singer was seen stepping out of a recording studio sporting a top emblazoned with the words ‘Doing real stuff sucks’.
However Justin clearly does value his work ethic and posted on Twitter today: '[You] gotta put in the work if you want the results.'
Justin teamed the cocky T-shirt with an appropriate pout as he left the studio in California today. The star was also wearing a pair of baggy charcoal jeans held up by a Louis Vuitton belt.

He topped his outfit off with a red baseball cap and matching Converse trainers.
Earlier this week the teen pop sensation had a very special treat when he appeared on Ellen.
Talk show host Ellen Degeneres treated him to his very own graduation, as Justin had been home-schooled.

She even created a special hat-stick so that he could wear the official graduation costume without messing up his perfectly coiffed hairdo.
Ellen told the Baby singer: 'I know you didn't have a traditional graduation ceremony, so I'm going to give you one right now.'
It was a great way to commemorate the end of his home schooling, as the Boyfriend singer revealed to Australia's Daily Telegraph recently: 'I just finished high school. I passed my test - I'm free! It was hard doing school and work every day.'
