Justin Bieber's Mid-Concert Meltdown
It looks like Justin Bieber is going to be the one saying Sorry after his most recent meltdown! On October 23, Bieber was performing in Manchester, England when he dropped his mic and stormed off stage.
Bieber was taking a break between his songs as he tried to address the crowd with what he thought would be a connective moment between his fans and himself. The excited crowd, however, kept screaming and cheering as he attempted to speak. Visibly aggravated, Bieber dropped his mic and exited the stage. After he left the stage, the crowd pleaded for Bieber's return, and after he cooled down, he returned to the stage. He told the crowd that even though they were great and that he appreciates them, he wasn't going to talk to them for the remainder of the concert.
This isn't Bieber's first act of defiance against his beloved Beliebers so far in his Purpose tour. In May of 2016, he announced that he will not be taking pictures with fans anymore. It is unknown how long this ban on pictures will last. Along the same lines, Bieber deleted his Instagram account in August of 2016 in the midst of relationship drama. Bieber, who was seeing Sofia Richie at the time, received hate from angry Selena Gomez, Richie, and Hailey Baldwin fans due to past relationship turmoil. Gomez fans were generally mad about the fact that Bieber was with anybody other than Gomez, which is not new drama in the Bieber universe. Richie fans were angry for a couple reasons. Some didn't like that she was with Bieber at all, while some didn't like that she was getting involved in hate because she chose to date Bieber. Balwin fans were the most upset, however, as they expressed how wrong it was for Bieber to date Richie so soon after he dated Balwin, especially since the two women are, or were, friends. Bieber has yet to return following the incident, leaving fans anxious and itching for new selfies.
The ups and downs of the Purpose Tour have made for a dramatic eight months, but will be coming to a close on November 29, 2016. Until then, it is more likely than not that Bieber will have yet another tantrum, leaving fans on the edge of their seats.
