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!”
