"The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where I was performing at that day," Bieber wrote in response to a journalist who criticized the move as "white trash."

"I walked straight from my meet and greet to him," he explained further. "It wasn't like it was like I was going into his environment, we were at a hockey arena. Wow am I ever white trash."

The superstar (seen above) was snapped in his home country this week to accept a Diamond Jubilee Medal from the PM.
