Justin Bieber says sorry after storming off stage because fans 'would not listen'
Justin Bieber left the audience shocked when he stormed off stage during a concert in Norway, annoyed at fans for not listening to him.
The singer cut short his filmed appearance after one of his fans spilled something on the stage. But when he tried to wipe it up, he wasn’t happy with the behaviour of front row spectators.
“Stop it. What are you doing. Yo, yo, what are you doing? Stop it. I said stop it. Listen to me, are you listening OK, I’m trying to wipe the floor. Just give me a second, yo,” he pleaded with the audience.
The 21-year-old was trying to clear up the spillage, but other fans got in his way. He then stormed off in frustration, throwing his jacket on the floor and saying: “Guys, never mind, I’m done. I’m not doing the show.”
The star, who has been busy promoting his new single Sorry ahead of the November album launch for Purpose, later tried to explain his exit on social media.
In a statement posted on Instagram, he wrote of the concert in Oslo: “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.”
On Wednesday the 21-year-old stormed out of another radio interview after becoming increasingly irritated with the hosts.
Justin became increasingly frustrated and bewildered by a series of awkward questions, according to the Daily Mirror. This included asking him whether he has apologised “for being a superstar”.
The DJs tried to persuade him to make a viral video together, but after he said “let’s do it”, he got up and left the studio – and didn’t come back.
