He Tweets to fans he made a mistake and is learning to do the right thing.

Justin Bieber has apologized for giving the finger to paparazzi as he and girlfriend Selena Gomez went to his birthday dinner in Los Angeles.

Bieber, who turned 17 Tuesday, made the move after he took the wheel of their vehicle while Gomez shielded her face. 
"I'm sorry," he wrote on Twitter Wednesday. "It's not always easy but I know better than to react in anger."
The singer, whose hair recently fetched $40,000 in an online auction, added that life has its "ups and downs" and that he would make "mistakes," but he would learn from them and try to do the right thing.
