PM Stephen Harper on flickr

When Justin Bieber recently showed up to meet Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper wearing overalls, someone over at the U.K.'s Daily Mail wasn't feeling it. Justin took to Instagram to respond to their headline which called him a "white trash prince." (Specifically, "Would a suit hurt, Justin? Bieber branded 'white trash prince' after wearing overalls and baseball cap to accept prestigious award from Canadian Prime Minister.")

"The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where I was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet-and-greet to him," Justin explained. "If you, [author] 'Hayley' [Peterson] expect me to have a change of clothes, let alone a suit at that specific time, that's crazy. It wasn't like it was like I was going into his environment, we were at a hockey arena." Then a final zinger: "Wow, am I ever white trash hayley peterson, lol." BUUURNNN.

While Peterson and Bieber could probably go back and forth on the subject of wearing overalls to meet the Prime Minister at a hockey arena, Prime Minister Harper stepped in with a tweet of his own that quashed the whole controversy: 

In fairness to @justinbieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls too. #cdnpoli #beliebers
