Yesterday, TMZ releasaed footage of Justin Bieber's inexplicable outburst at a restaurant, in which the young pop star peed into a mop bucket and yelled "Fuck Bill Clinton!" while spraying a photo of the 42nd president with liquid cleaning fluid.

A day later, Bieber's motivations for the oddly political gesture are no clearer -- but the Biebs has smoothed things over with the former president. The two reportedly had a phone conversation, as Bieber wrote on Twitter:

According to insider sources, Bieber and Clinton talked about the Clinton Fund and humanitarian work. E reports:

We're also told that Bieber told the statesman and activist that if there was anything he could do for the Clinton Global Initiative, he would love to help.

Clinton, in turn, told the pop singer to focus on the good that he can do for the world—and to keep an eye on his friends (one of whom purportedly leaked the video in question).

Of the entire incident, the source told E: "If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well." Except that, as we all know, it's hardly the worst thing Bieber has ever done.

Perhaps all is not so well, after all.
