Just when you thought that Justin Bieber looked to be edging toward a level of maturity by keeping out of the headlines with his bad-boy antics, he blows it. Bieber walked off the stage in Oslo, Norway, on Thursday night refusing to go on with the show. He did this after performing just one song, which really disappointed his fans.
According to CNN News on October 29, that was it, Bieber made up his mind and the show was over. Apparently a fan in the front row had spilled something on the stage and it was in an area that Bieber was going to use during his performance. For some unknown reason he decided to clean it himself.
While trying to wipe up that spill he stopped because the fans were swarming around. He then said to the fans: “Yo listen to me, are you listening to me? OK I’m trying to wipe the floor, give me a second yo,” Bieber yells and then adds, “guys, never mind, I’m done. I’m not doing the show.”
According to People Magazine, Bieber was on stage and scheduled to perform five or six songs for the TV talk show “Senkveld,” but he walked off the stage after singing only one song. Apparently it was the fans inundating the singer while he tried to clean the stage that got his nose out of joint.
This prompted his child-like attitude which ended in an early exit from the show. He rubbed some folks the wrong way the day before when interviewing at a radio station. Apparently the interviewer got on his nerves by repeatedly asking Bieber to “help me break the Internet.” This prompted the crooner to get up and shuffle off in a huff.
Following these two incidents Bieber sent off an online apology claiming his behaviors were the result of having a long week. Bieber writes on Instagram:
“Sadly it’s Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be “on” as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen. Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from. I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting. Unfortunately people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed im sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.. With love Justin.”
Bieber’s new album “Purpose” is slated for a November 13 release and this promotional tour hasn’t gone very well for the seemingly hot-headed 21-year-old crooner. Is this really the same kid who broke into the music scene so thankful for the opportunity to sing in front of audiences? Yes, but fame happened and apparently went to his head.
Today it seems more like a chore for him to entertain. His arrogant ways, which are apparent even in his apology attempt, rub some folks the wrong way. He said in his apology, “the people in the front row would not listen,” but why does he think he has the right to make people “listen” to his orders?
These are the people who made Bieber famous and allowed him to get on stage with that popularity they’ve awarded him, but apparently the spoiled crooner doesn’t see it like that. The crowd was there to listen to his music, not to Bieber having a child-like fit because “they wouldn’t listen” to him giving directions.
This kid has to remember that a lot of his fans are young and it is their parents supplying the money so they can buy his music and attend his concerts. Parents may get tired watching their kids have an infatuation with a 21-year-old acting like a spoiled brat. They might want to spend that money on music coming from someone who will supply a good example today!
