Justin Bieber to fan who threw a hat on stage: ‘you ruined the moment’


Hey you guys, do NOT interrupt Justin Bieber when he is in the zone, okay?!? That was the message Baby Biebs sent out at his Purpose concert in Atlantic City on Friday Night. During a moment between songs, the Mighty Baby Biebs decided to get real with some deep thoughts about our Purpose when an over-zealous fan threw a hat on stage for his or her idol. But Bieber wasn’t having it. After being interrupted and losing his train of thought, Biebs called the fan out, declaring that they should just sit and listen to him pontificate rather than tossing up a gift because, as Biebs said, “I probably don’t want that s—t.”

When it comes to attending a Justin Bieber concert, there’s some etiquette you just have to follow.

You better be a Belieber, willing to dance to “Sorry” and maybe keep your objects away from the stage.

During Friday night’s concert at Boardwalk Hall Arena in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the “Beauty and a Beat” singer was speaking to the crowd when a concert attendee tried to throw something onstage. The moment caused Justin to speak out and make a request to fans.

“Take this moment to listen and try not to give me a hat or whatever you’re trying to throw onto the stage right now, because I probably don’t want that s–t,” he shared in a video captured on social media before receiving a huge round of applause. “Sorry that was mean.”

“But yeah, no I lost what I was going to say,” he continued. “I was deep into, like, a mode and a zone. I was—I was into it. Now I’m out of it. I’ll get it back. Just give me a second.”

I get it, it sucks when you have a really good point to make and something distracts you. Except that when you do have a really good point, it generally doesn’t fly out of your head the minute you detect movement. The words of wisdom that Biebs eventually shared, once he remembered them, were these: “I just wanted to take this moment to acknowledge the fact that we all have Purpose, that we all have a meaning to life and that we don’t just live to die and that this life isn’t all struggles.” Save for, you know, when you throw things on a concert stage. Then the whole carpe diem thing should be scrapped because Biebs is laying down some wisdom! Biebs apologized a second time by saying, “Sorry for throwing your hat but you ruined the moment. Whatever, let’s do it.” Seriously, dude – let it go. You still got your little Purpose moment in there with the clever tie-in to your album and tour.

The fan might want to hang on to that hat to make some serious cash, though. Somehow, Bieber’s tour merchandise has lit up the fashion market. In addition to multiple pop-up stores, the stuff is selling out quickly. High-end fashion outlets and editors are chasing this merchandise down. I swear, if I had disposable income, I would buy one of his $1700 leather jackets and throw it on stage. That way, when he said he didn’t want that s–t, I could legitimately shout back “Yeah, me either – that’s why I threw it!”

    He seems to be careening toward a 5150 psych hold by the end of the year.

  2. CariBean says:

    He just needs to get over himself. He could have simply ignored it and kept pontificating his deep thoughts.

  3. Aussie girl says:

    Hecate you made me laugh, that was a killer comment regarding the jacket to end your post on 😂😂😂

    • Lora says:

      Oh yes, I’m laughing at that too 😂

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Me too. I love the idea of offering up his own crap jacket. Most excellent.

    • byland says:

      Yeah, but she’d have to go to a Justin Beiber concert to go through with it.

      The therapy involved to get over that would cost far more than $1,700.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Hmmm….that’s true, byland. It’s not worth risking our Hecate’s sanity for that!

  4. Ronaldinhio says:

    I think Beaver is having some ishoos atm
    I genuinely think he needs a break for some years until he can appreciate his fans and show some empathy and compassion for this young kids and girls who just adore him

  5. mayamae says:

    I logged onto the site on my phone and only saw the hat. I assumed it was the queen! Nice hat Biebs! Did you steal it from your granny?

  6. Mia4s says:

    Important lesson to his young female fans;

    1. He does not like you, care about you, or consider you “family” in any way except in as much as he has to for money/PR; and

    2. You need to figure out fast that boys in real life who treat you like crap are never worth your time or effort.

    We’ve all been there with our early star crushes, you’ll live.

      Too true.

      My thirteen-year-old self learnt sad, sad lesson one about Justin Timberlake at a backstage meet-a-greet.

      The upside was getting really into PJ Harvey, Radiohead, The Mendoza Line, Belle and Sebastian, and more on my own and then diving into my Dad’s old LPs and falling for classic rock and folk with the kind of adherence and adoration that can only be found in the converted after.

    I want him to get arrested on charges that actually stick someday. He really needs real jail (not Lohan hours) time to make him less of a horrible human being. Does he play concerts in East Asia? Brokedown Palace is ready for a sequel!

  8. Bichon says:

    This is someone who was so young and uneducated, and whose mom was also. He got super rich, no one told him “no” and all his toadies waited on him. Now he has absolutely no idea what to do when things go “wrong” in his insular world. He really has no idea. He just gets angry and
    throws a hissy, as would a toddler. He’s still uneducated, and he doesn’t seem particularly interested in educational pursuits. He will never be empathetic.

    • d says:

      Yes, all that, terrible parents, and famous and rich and still being told he has to work for his money, can you imagine? Toddler rage. That’s how I see some of his issues; doesn’t like being told what to do (i.e., work, go on tour, etc.). He does not have ability to cope. He probably just wants it to come easy, like his fame did. I think he really should get out now and go live a normal life somewhere, but I’d bet good money he’s being forced to stay in (record contracts, label contracts, toadies to pay, etc., etc.); probably another source of rage. He just doesn’t know how to fix his problem, which is what it seems to me. He clearly does not want to be doing what he’s doing these days. So I have an iota of sympathy for him based on that belief (and I could just as easily be wrong).

    • Wren says:

      Yeah, it really does seem that way, like he literally has no idea how to cope with anything not going his way. Furthermore, it seems like he doesn’t even know how to get his way in the first place, like he just expects everything to unfold the way he wants.

      Also, does anyone else think he’s trying to morph into Eminem?

  9. saras says:

    He has been on a burn out path for a while. Take your money and go hide somewhere. Take the dignified way instead of the the drugged out mean to fans way! Lol

  10. MiniMii says:

    What a whiny little twit.

  11. Lucy says:

    I remember reading an article on Lainey Gossip about how comfortable and a ease Nick Jonas seemed while attending an event that has taken place the day before, and how she wasn’t worried for him nor his future at all, as opposed to how she felt about Bieber. This reminds me of that article.

  12. Pandy says:

    I’m looking forward to the day I see him shilling kitty litter.

  13. EscapedConvent says:

    Someone ruined the moment during which the scholarly Bieber would have shared an erudite thought with his worshippers? He probably had the secret to all the people of Earth living in harmony. Damn that fan and her stupid hat-throwing!

    Remember, this is the same brilliant kid who referred to the Sistine Chapel as the “Sixteenth Chapel” on the Letterman show. He had no idea why the audience was laughing.

  14. Pepper says:

    Why does this guy still have fans? He clearly hates them, and he goes out of his way to show it. It’s one thing to be a fan of someone who just doesn’t engage, but this dipsh&* goes around spitting on fans, being mean to fans, whining about how terrible it is to have all these fans while at the same time begging for attention the second it goes away…

    • EscapedConvent says:

      And collecting millions of dollars from those fans he ridicules. The little assclown is lucky to have any fans at all. If his fans didn’t support him, he’d have to work at Burger King.

    • RedOnTheHead says:

      Pepper, it’s one of the great mysteries of the universe. Maybe because they’re 13 yrs old? And don’t know whether to scratch their watch or wind their butt? I just chalk up his fans to the blissful ignorance of tweens. But there’s no excuse for him; he’s supposed to be an adult now.

  15. Elizabeth Beachwood says:

    He is a perpetual man-child.

  16. Drbzy says:

    Okay….I took my little sister to one of his Florida shows. He did the same monologue there (sans being a shithead to his fans giving him gifts). My sister (a devout fan, much like a follower of Christ) informed me that he says the same exact monologue at every one of his shows. Losing his train of thought is a SAD excuse.
