Justin Bieber Walked Out Midway Through His Own Show, Which I Thought Was The Audience’s Job

Justin Bieber performing on Believe Tour in Sao Paolo November 2013Justin Bieber has been a very busy boy in South America, lately. Something about the water down there, or the air, or the food has really kicked his downward spiral into high gear, and I don’t think there’s any stopping it now.

Apparently tired of showing up so late for his shows that some ticket-holders had to actually go home and go to bed before he came onstage, Justin decided to change the game up a little bit. He actually showed up to his concert in Buenos Aires last night, and he’d performed for a little under an hour when he decided that he’d had enough and it was time to leave the stage midway through, claiming food poisoning.

“I’m not feeling too good, I think I’m out of energy,” said our hero, bowing his head in shame and blowing a kiss to the audience, retreating backstage to spend the rest of his evening resting and furiously retweeting members of his team insisting that it was, like, so impressive that he went onstage at all given how he was feeling and the fact that he performed ‘against doctor’s advice’. Which, considering it involves ignoring the counsel of adult humans, does kind of sound like Justin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I understand that food poisoning is pretty debilitating, and if you had that, Justin, then it makes sense that you wouldn’t be able to perform. But I can’t help but remember that ‘food poisoning’ is also that catch-all ailment that people claim when they’re actually hungover or they’ve worn their body out from partying too hard, so excuse me if I don’t give you the benefit of the doubt. This is your job, dude — performing in front of humans for money. You need to make that your priority, and as someone who’s seen the news for the past couple weeks, I can guarantee you that that’s not what’s been going on.

I just think that when you’re standing in front of a group of people who have paid up to $320 to see you in a week when you’ve been accused of sleeping with a prostitute after being caught on camera taking a wittle nappy, you might want to try to give those people their money’s worth. Even if you’re feeling crappy and you can’t wait to get off the stage, you have to remember that these are pretty much the only people in the world still on your side, so you might have to make some sacrifices in the name of true ‘artistry’. For example, if you’re feeling shaky at all, maybe you go back to your hotel and hydrate. Not spend the rest of your night throwing thousands of dollars at strippers or having a chicken nugget party that’s ten people deep. Just a thought.

You feel better, though, bro — and don’t worry about having Scooter Braun announce a make-up date until you’ve been seen with at least three more rumored-hookers.

    South America is so not good for Justin, obv. (Actually, it’s probably the other way around.)

    I don’t like him but I think you’re being too harsh. Food poisoning or fever, I still didn’t catch what he has, those come out of nowhere at times… I know I suffer stomach issues quite a lot, and no – it’s never because I’m hungover or partied out. So yeah, he’s a tool and a bad example to his fans, but I’d say that was being too harsh on this particular thing.
