Justin Bieber has been making news for things besides music for years - even when he's not there. Here's a look at some of the 18-year-old's more recent headlines:

January 3, 2013: A paparazzo is struck by a car and killed in West Los Angeles while pursuing Bieber's white Ferrari. Bieber was not in the car.

November 21, 2012: Prosecutors opt not to file charges against Bieber after finding insufficient evidence that he punched and kicked a photographer outside a movie theatre near his home in Calabasas, Calif., a month earlier.

November 14, 2011: A judge dismisses counts filed under California's anti-paparazzi law against photographer Paul Raef, who was charged in July with being involved in a high-speed pursuit of the pop star along a San Fernando Valley freeway.

October 10, 2012: Bieber tweets that some of his belongings were stolen during a show in Tacoma, Wash. Police did not investigate because no theft report was filed, leading some to suggest the claim was a publicity stunt. Bieber's camp issues a statement insisting the theft really happened.

September 30, 2012: Bieber vomits twice onstage during a concert in Glendale, Ariz. The video goes viral.

July 13, 2012: A woman sues Bieber for $9.2 million claiming she suffered permanent hearing loss at his concert in Portland, Ore.

October 31, 2011: A San Diego woman files a paternity suit against Bieber, claiming he fathered her baby boy during a tryst when the singer was 16. Bieber called the claims "crazy."

August 30, 2011: Bieber is involved in a minor car accident in his Ferrari in Studio City, Calif.

May 7, 2011: Bieber agrees to record a public service announcement against cyberbullying to resolve criminal charges against his manager and a record executive after an autograph signing caused a fan frenzy at a New York mall in 2009.

March 3, 2011: A lock of Bieber's hair sells for $40,000 on eBay.

December 9, 2010: Barbara Walters prophetically includes Bieber in her "10 Most Fascinating People" TV special.
