The first rule of Justin Bieber’s house parties: You do not talk about Justin Bieber's house parties.
Someone has already violated this rule by sharing with TMZ a copy of the liability waiver and release that Justin reportedly has everyone sign if they want to enter his home. Under section #3, "Confidentiality," it goes into great detail about how you can't share any information on what happens in regard to "the Released Parties" (Justin and his guests).
Here's an underlined section: "Without in any way limiting the foregoing, under no circumstances will you divulge the details of you entering and being on the Property or engaging in the Activities by any means or through any media whatsoever, including without limitation, through photographs, video, blogging, texting, ‘Tweeting,’ or posting any such information on any social media site."
You're also not allowed to talk about the Released Parties's legal and financial affairs, "physical health, or the philosophical, spiritual or other views or characteristics." Don't even share their philosophy! Or what? It's not just a polite request — if you violate the terms, you may be sued for $5 million. You can check out the document here, but it also warns that there may be risky activities inside that are "potentially hazardous and you should not participate unless you are medically able and properly trained." They could lead to "minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including death." Sounds like some party! Or a Viagra commercial.
A lot of stars have confidentiality agreements like this, so you have to sign your life away if you want to spend any time with them. The desire for privacy and protection is understandable, but ... wow. Would you sign?
