In the entertainment world, one would be hard pressed to find anyone that is as popular as Justin Bieber these days. With apologies to Lindsay Lohan and her continual bouts with the law, Bieber’s star power has made him one of biggest draws in the music industry right now. His current tour, entitled “Believe”, is making all the teen girls swoon, but they are not the only ones being affected by the 19-year-old Canadian rocker.
It turns out that young Bieber can incite a thrill in both sexes if his latest concert in Dubai is any indication. Bieber was late into his gig when he began to play a song while sitting down at the piano. As the singer crooned away, a male fan darted out of the crowd and made his way towards Bieber. He got close enough to grab hold of, and appeared to, hug the young unsuspecting star. Footage of the supposed attack can be seen here.
The fact that it was an apparent hug seems to make the word attack the wrong one to use in this case. The fan did not carry any type of weapon, nor did he appear to be trying to cause any harm to the Canadian rocker. That fact is borne out by the fact that the authorities did not levy additional charges against the young man. The fan did not last long on the stage as security quickly tackled him and ushered him off the stage.
There was one injury that was reported, that being the piano on which Bieber was playing. As the security guards went after the runaway fan, the man careened into the piano, causing it to flip over on the stage. The fan appeared to get away unscathed, but the piano was not as fortunate. The instrument was deemed unplayable by Bieber’s people.
Give Justin Bieber credit though, because he did not cancel the rest of the concert. Most stars, after an incident like that, would be too freaked out to carry on with the show, but Bieber would have none of that. He took a short break, which lasted under five minutes, and then returned to the stage. He proceeded to close the show with his hit songs “Boyfriend” and “Baby”.
It certainly has been a memorable tour for the young singer, as he and his entourage have encountered numerous issues. He had his monkey quarantined in Germany, made a fool of himself with his Anne Frank – Bielieber tweet, and had drugs allegedly discovered on his tour bus. The young man seems oblivious to all of the craziness, but this latest occurrence might want to make him think twice about the security minding the stage at his concerts.
