Justin Bieber appearance leads to 'hysteria,' injury in Australia

Posted on


Image Credit: George Pimentel/WireImage.comBiebermania has officially circled the globe. According to reports noted by Access Hollywood, chaos and injuries resulted when Justin Bieber was forced to cancel a televised appearance this morning in Sydney, Australia. Local newspapers reported that the singer’s planned gig was scrapped due to an “unruly crowd.” Few things make a crowd unrulier than scotching the event they’ve come to see, so this reportedly led to a 2 A.M. “crowd surge” and several unspecified injuries, including “at least 10 girls cared for by paramedics following fainting spells.” Bieber watchers may recall a similar incident that took place at a Long Island mall last November.

Bieber seems to have placated his fans this time with a brief one-song performance after moving inside from where the gig would have taken place. You can watch him sing “Baby” and banter awkwardly with Australian TV hosts after the jump. “Well, I guess the police say that you guys have to go home,” Bieber tells everyone outside the studio following the song. “I mean, I’d love for you to stay and hang out, but we gotta go. So, talk to you guys later.”
