Another Rebel Without A Cause! Justin Bieber sucks on a cigarette as he recreates iconic James Dean pose

By Daily Mail Reporter

James Dean famously portrayed troubled young man Jim Stark in Rebel Without A Cause.

And Justin Bieber apparently feels an affinity of some sort with the late iconic actor - who died at 24 - because on Saturday he uploaded an Instagram photo of himself replicating one of Dean's famous poses from the classic 1955 flick.

In the black and white photo, the 20-year-old singer can be seen pouting with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth - although he was sure to assure his fans that he doesn't smoke.

Justin appears to be sitting casually against a brick wall, wearing a white T-shirt rolled up at the sleeves to reveal his solid tattoo sleeves.

His eyes form a similar enigmatic gaze to the one that was often seen on Dean, whilst the smoking stick remains unlit - as opposed to the late actor's lit one - as it wags between his lips.

Even the Baby singer's hairstyle, whilst a little longer, is not entirely dissimilar to the one sported by Dean in a famous shot from Rebel Without A Cause.

A noticeable difference, however, is the bling-tastic wristwatch worn by Justin which blatantly outnumbers the dollars likely to have been spent on Dean's modest timepiece.

'This is James Dean inspired,' the hitmaker wrote alongside the photo, adding: 'Don't ask me if I smoke ciggys cuz I don't.'

It is an interesting comparison, considering that James Dean somewhat represented the troubled youth of his era and Justin - who was once in a loved up relationship with Selena Gomez - arguably represents an amplified version of the troubled youth of today.

In the past, Justin's hair stylist has in fact gone so far as to admit that James Dean is in fact used as inspiration for his new 'adult' look.

'Justin is growing in to an adult,' celebrity hair stylist Vanessa Price told Us Weekly back in March of 2012.

'So we decided that his style should reflect that. We looked to the legendary James Dean for our inspiration.'

Meanwhile, as the Canadian star is said to be paying his mother Pattie Lynn Mallette $8,000 a month to upkeep her 2,900 square foot Los Angeles property after she ran into debt trouble.

I would hazard a guess that James Dean never wore pants that made him look like his nappy needed changing, nor did he ever walk like a money like Bieber seems to do. Bieber couldn't be a pimple on Dean's rear.

He will always be an utter loser. He needs to be surrounded by people who will be real with him and tell him he's behaving like an idiot and ruining his career. Get rid of the sycophantic fawners who say yes to everything he asks.

James Dean was a real man, Justin Bieber is a little boy pretending he is tough.

Here's the big difference, Justin: James Dean was a good actor and NOT JUST A POSER!!!!! Nothing you can do right now will erase the fact that you are perceived as a very very shallow, spoilt brat.
