Justin Bieber Wishes His Concerts Were Black Holes of Silence Between Songs
Justin Bieber appears to be noise-averse lately -- particularly when all that commotion comes from excited fans, mid-concert, while he's trying to stick to his Purpose World Tour script.
Just two days after a deflated Bieber initially begged concertgoers to curb their screams, the "Sorry" singer took a less diplomatic approach to silencing an especially chatty Manchester Arena crowd.
Staring down an audience member whose volume levels were apparently loud enough to set Bieber off, the Purpose singer offered up his microphone to the crowd, saying, "Do you wanna take the [mic]? You can talk if you want."
He turned to the rest of arena then and said, "If you guys wanna take this moment and...I just thought I could have a moment of trying to say something. But if not, I'll just get to singing, if you guys don't want to hear me speak."
Taking on the air of a disgruntled parent scolding a misbehaving adolescent, Bieber continued, threatening to nix his watery personal speeches altogether should the perpetual interruption continue.
"I don't mind cutting the bullsh---," he said. "I don't need to talk. I'm just trying to engage, but if you guys don't want to do that, you can just play the music."
And so the title track began, amid boos from slighted fans eager to hear Bieber deliver his truth. Better luck next time.
