Bieber ditches screaming fans, Latest Music News - The New Paper

Bieber ditches screaming fans

Justin Bieber has thrown yet another hissy fit during his Purpose World Tour in the UK. Fans at the Manchester concert on Sunday saw the Canadian pop star storm off the stage.

Reason? He had enough of their screaming and their refusal to listen to him talk when he tried to "connect" with them.

"I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love, I appreciate the kind things," he said, according to E! News.

"But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you.

"I don't think it's necessary when I'm trying to say something and you guys are screaming."

Bieber, 22, then dropped his microphone and left the stage, amid boos from the crowd.

Swift still fighting 2013 groping case

Taylor Swift told prosecutors she was left "stunned" and deeply distressed after a radio DJ allegedly groped her during a fan meet-and-greet in June 2013.

Today, the 26-year-old is still fighting Denver-based DJ David Mueller over allegations of sexual assault.

"Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he put his hand up my dress and grabbed my butt cheek," said Swift.

"And no matter how much I scooted over, it was still there.

"I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before. I was completely stunned."

While Swift has kept the photo from the public, a transcript of her July 26 videotaped deposition about the incident is publicly available.

Spears unfazed by falling top

About as pro as a pop superstar gets, there are still certain things that are beyond one's control. For Britney Spears, it was her halter-neck top.

During a performance as part of her Las Vegas residency show last Sunday, she had a wardrobe malfunction but was spared from any embarrassment, thanks to her quick-thinking backup dancers.

Fan footage shows Spears, 34, struggling with her top thrice before one dancer takes off his shirt and puts it over the singer.

Spears carried on with her performances without missing a beat. A pro, indeed.

You can't make music with a bunch of boys (in the studio) who are staring at a lobster on your head. They are going to get distracted.
