“Bad Day”? Try Bad Week! Justin Bieber dropped yet another new single past midnight on Monday, Nov. 4 — called “Bad Day,” it’s apt for the 19-year-old’s press lately while touring in South America. On Friday, the pop phenom was allegedly caught leaving a brothel. The next night, during a concert in Sao Paulo, a shirtless Bieber was crooning “Boyfriend” for the crowd when a fan threw a water bottle onstage — hitting the star in the face and knocking his microphone out of his hands.
Peeved, Bieber gave a slow, very deliberate look out into the audience and then angrily stormed off the stage mid-show. The Telegraph reports that fans chanted for Bieber to return to the stage for half an hour to no avail — and the arena lights were eventually turned on, with the crew packing up for the night.
“A night of fun was overshadowed by a few seconds of anger and immaturity,” one Brazilian critic wrote. Earlier in the evening, according to The Telegraph, Bieber showed up an hour and twenty minutes late to the arena — and three hours late to a meet-and-greet with fans who had paid $1,000 to meet him.
Bieber failed to acknowledge the incident on Twitter after the show. “We had a good time tonight. brazil goes hard,” he tweeted. “u all were loud tonight. thanks for the love. it’s all love. all the time. Obrigado Brazil! On to the next one. #BelieveTour again tomorrow.”
