Justin Bieber booed in Canada

2012-11-26 22:14
Toronto - Justin Bieber faced a hostile homecoming during his half-time performance at Canada's football Grey Cup, after football fans booed  him.

The crowd took to booing the 18-year-old pop star when his face popped up on a screen before his performance at the weekend.

They continued booing when a host spoke his name and didn't stop as he took the stage. This continued throughout his medley of the charttoppers Boyfriend and Beauty and a Beat.

If Bieber was bothered, it didn't show. After finishing the show, Bieber said: "Thank you so much Canada. I love you."

'I would be wearing my overalls too'

Earlier in the week, Bieber was presented with a Diamond Jubilee Medal by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and caused a scene by wearing overalls, unbuttoned on one shoulder, over a white T-shirt, with a backwards baseball cap.

There was so much uproar that Harper even weighed in on Twitter.

Harper tweeted on Sunday:

The Canadian Football League may have been hoping to court Bieber's army of Twitter followers on Sunday, but recent Grey Cup half-time performers have skewed toward the comparatively heavy likes of Nickelback and Lenny Kravitz.

The 27-year-old Carly Rae Jepsen also received a mixed reaction at first during her recent performance, but won the crowd over during an enthusiastic medley of her latest single, This Kiss, and her hit Call Me Maybe.

      He should stick to singing for teenage girls... He has no place at a football game! What did he expect? That all the guys are going to hold hands and start doing the YMCA?

    Seriously take a teen idolised by teenage girls and have them perform at a Football game? Of course they going to skew towards the heavier type. Whoever signed Bieber on for this should be fired. It's not fair on the artist to be performing in what would only be a hostile environment.
