Justin Bieber Booed by Weeping Fans
POP superstar Justin Bieber was booed by weeping fans last night after turning up TWO HOURS late for a gig.
The Baby singer was due on stage at 8.30pm but did not appear until 10.20pm — at London’s 02 Arena.

Many of his fans — as young as five — had already been taken home to get up for school this morning. Hundreds of the Canadian’s followers — known as Beliebers — left in tears after not seeing him perform.
The 20,000 crowd had piled into the venue at 6.30pm — and mums and dads returned at 10pm when the gig was due to end. Bieber, 19, had not even got on stage by then.
Parents, who forked out up to £331 a ticket, demanded refunds as staff claimed the delay was “down to his management”. Sarah Joyce, 46, travelled from Portsmouth with daughters Niamh, 13, and Aimee, nine.
She said: “It’s not fair, we spent over £200 on tickets 18 months in advance. He’s rushed the show and we’ve had to leave to get home.”
Fan Rikki Townsend, 16, said: “Everyone was booing. When he came on he didn’t say sorry — he just started singing.”
Sun columnist Jane Moore tweeted: “Bieber came on TWO hours late at o2 tonight. What an insult.”
