Justin Bieber lectures fans again: ‘Screaming is just so obnoxious’


I’m starting to wonder if Justin Bieber just doesn’t like his fans. First he refuses meet-and-greets, then he stops taking pictures with them and then he yells at them for making him forget his deeply purposeful thoughts. Well now they have annoyed him once more by daring to show enthusiasm at his concert during his Purpose Tour. While performing in Birmingham, England, Biebs was telling the audience all about how much he missed his family, home and whatever else he holds dear. Perhaps worried that he would lose his train of thought again, he scolded the audience for their verbal excitement and told them to just hold their screams until the Biebs’ Appointed Screaming Moments. Here’s a video one fan took of his “lecture”:

“Can you guys do me a favor? Can you guys just relax for about two seconds? I get it, I get it, but I’m like two feet away from you. And I can hear you. I appreciate all the love, it’s amazing. But can you show it in a different way? Screaming is just so obnoxious,” – somewhere the remaining Beatles are laughing. I’m not disputing that constant screaming can be annoying but stop lecturing your audiences, dude. It’s a concert, people go to a concert – and spend good money for it – to have access to musicians even if only from afar. A scream is a lot safer than a stage rush.

Although there were scattered “boos” during his little monologue, many rushed to his defense. Along the lines of the tweet posted above, fans found nothing wrong with Biebs dictating when his audience can speak. Some went so far as to accuse those offended as being non-Beliebers, because “if they were, they’d get him.” Well, you got me. I just don’t “get” The Biebs. Because when I listen to that video, I can hear everything he is saying, even over the screams. Were I there as a fan, my Beliebing experience would not have been diminished due to some caterwauling. If Bieber is so prone to distraction that noise can throw him off track, perhaps he should invest in a teleprompter. Or write notes on his hands. I would say that at the rate he is telling his fans off, he is in danger of losing them, but clearly he can do whatever he wants and they’ll keep coming back.

    “While performing in Birmingham, England, Biebs was telling the audience all about how much he missed his family, home and whatever else he holds dear.” You know, if you miss it all that much then go back home. You have all the money you could possibly need the rest of your life, so you can afford to live a quiet life out of the spotlight. I have been to many concerts but never one where the performer feels he/she can rant about anything or tell the audience what to do. If you dislike the life you lead so much, change it.

    He’s really losing it. His management should force him to take a solid break and relax or get some treatment if need be. Those fans are the only reason you are where you are, Justin. Give me a break, talk about first world problems.

    • swedish chef says:

      Management will just squeeze every last dollar they can get out of him before he cracks, and then they will drop him like he’s garbage. Use up and throw out. Bieber said in an interview that his manager “challenges” him to do more, to keep going. I doubt management has Justin’s best interest in mind when they arechallenging him to do another album or tour. Management thinks he can rest when his mental health has deteriorated to the point where he is paralyzed with anxiety and emotional instability.

    Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Justin. You are still considered a boy band artist after all. Shelf life, best before date, etc.

    What a do*chebag!!!

    If you don’t like the screaming of fans at your concerts because they love you, then you should just not be a PROFESSIONAL POP STAR. The fame and the fortune comes with the territory and if you don’t like it then don’t be a POP STAR anymore.

    You fans can make you and they can break you. DON’T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU, Justin Beiber.

    Nah, I’m with him. That shiz is annoying.

    • Olenna says:

      Agree. I’ve never understood that screaming (and crying) behavior. It must be something akin to mass hysteria.

    • Jessie Mendoza says:

      same. that obnoxious screaming is literally why I don’t go to concerts.

  7. Sea Dragon says:

    It is he who is obnoxious, not his fans.

  8. Jade says:

    Does he really wear sweatpants and a beat up looking sweatshirt to peform?

  9. molee says:

    Be careful what you wish for. One day, they won’t be screaming, they will be laughing and smirking.

  10. Val says:

    He is becoming a Kanye!!! This is too funny.

    However, not gonna lie, I don’t get the constant screaming. Can’t you just appreciate something/someone without yelling at it?

  11. me says:

    He’s rich enough he doesn’t have to do this anymore if he doesn’t want to. It seems like he’s had enough. Well one day the fans won’t be there anymore and he’ll be missing these days. Hope he thinks about that.

    People the other day were saying it was wrong to think that people could tell Amy Schumer what to/ what not to say (her show in Florida)- that she is an artist, it’s her show, and she can say what she wants. That to tell her to just shut up and preform is very “dance monkey, dance.”

    It’s his concert, he’s expressing his thoughts in a reasonable way.. Why is this wrong of him? It’s his show! I don’t particularly care for him, but I don’t think he is out of line here.

  13. Lucy says:

    “Clearly he can do whatever he wants, and they will keep coming back”. This kinda sounds like an abusive relationship.

  14. respect says:

    Something makes me think” future feldman”…the kid is broken and when he falls it will be ugly I fear

  15. Manjit says:

    I wonder what he would say if his next audience sat perfectly still in total silence throughout the concert? Would that be “respectful” enough for him?

  16. Erica_V says:

    Interesting that female pop stars have such elaborate costumes and he’s wearing a sweatshirt & sweatpants.

    I wonder what the press would write about Gaga, Katy or JLo if they went out and performed their concert in sweats.

  17. moo says:

    turning into a baby Kanye, is he? of course.

  18. Nura says:

    Ohhhhhhh know you have to stay silent like an operah MF du***.

    • TakWang Chan says:

      It’s his style, its his right to expect fans to tone/quiet down so he can focus on singingtalking or just enhousing the moment w/. His fans!

  19. Veronica says:

    I have never seen anybody who better exemplified the concept of “fame as an addiction.” Because he can’t seem to keep away but looks like he hates every minute of it.
