There are several similarities between Justin Bieber and entertainment mogul Jay-Z and they're too many to name.  I know you would be surprised to know that the teen pop star has taken a page out of Jigga Man's playbook when it comes down to rumors. 

This past year hasn't been the best year for 'Beauty & a Beat' singer.  He has been caught smoking pot, off and on relationship with Selena Gomez, and possible battery charges.  It has been a rough year for him but he continues to move forward.

While talking to Teen Vogue, Bieber explicitly disclosed how he plans on handling rumors and his personal issues.  According to Complex, Bieber said,

“I don’t need to address every speculation. Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond, because he’s Jay-Z.”

I think Bieber used sound judgement in taking this play from Mr. Carter.  To many times entertainers feed into disclosing information to stay relative or transparent, that is not always best.  In a time where privacy is just as valuable as money, it would seem right that more people will take heed to how Jay-Z handles speculation and personal issues.  Keep silent.
