Justin Bieber goes racing in Atlanta

392904_10150401961608575_221057878574_8500212_1537680483_nJustin Bieber’s back in Atlanta, the town he sort of, kind of calls home.

“Glad to be back spending time in ATL with friends,” he tweeted Monday. “This city is my 2nd home.”

Although the teen performer has been besieged on tour stops around the world, Atlanta leaves him alone for the most part. During his last trip home he and gal pal Selena Gomez were able to dine at Chops without causing a panic, for example.

Monday night Bieber and some buddies hit Andretti Indoor Karting & Games in Roswell and spent a couple of hours racing, playing video games and just being kids.

The folks at Andretti say he handled himself well behind the wheel, and posted the photo above showing Biebs, center, all tricked out in his racing gear.

If I had Justin’s money I’d be down at Atlanta Motor Speedway driving a Cup car for $70 per lap.

He’s a good guy. I hope in the next 3 or 4 years he doesn’t think he has to do things to look cool… yo Justin, just stay normal and a simple guy that people can understand and you’ll be ok.

Does he have the AID? Act Up, really? I think Justin is trying to be ironic. He’s all woman.

Really?

Of course he can go to Chops and not be bothered. No one there knows who the hell he is. Even if they do, they don’t care because there is an actual celebrity 3 tables over.

All I want for Christmas is JB’s Christmas album, 1000 nine mm Luger rounds, and Selena!

Leave the young fellow alone. Getting all that fame and money is also a heavy weight to carry. He seems to be carrying it well so far.
Atlanta should be proud that he and other celebs feel comfortable here. It’s a great place.

I absolutely LOVE Bieber! He is a role model for me and most of the other boys my age. I wish I could have gone to Andretti’s and sat in Justin’s lap while he drove around the track! His earring is perfect, you haters quit dissin’ him, there is a reason HE is the Entertainer of the Year!

Good for him, sounds fun.

I’d rather see the old Limelight disco ball at the Kroger in Buckhead than see Justin & Selena chowing down.
