Justin Bieber collapses at London gig

2013-03-08 08:31
London - A spokesperson for Justin Bieber said late on Thursday that the 19-year-old pop star was given oxygen and took a 20-minute reprieve after fainting backstage at London's O2 Arena.

"Getting better," Bieber posted on Twitter. "Thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. Best fans in the world. Figuring out what happened. Thanks for the love."

In a video of the concert posted online, Bieber's manager appeared on stage Thursday night and told the crowd that the singer was feeling "very low of breath" but would return to finish the show, which he did.

The Baby singer is in London to perform four concerts at the O2 arena.

He posted this photo of himself in hospital to his Instagram account, with the caption "Gettin better listening to Janis Joplin".

The incident caps a difficult week for Bieber. He was forced to apologise to outraged fans who accused him of taking the stage almost two hours late for his first concert at the O2 on Monday.

He insisted he was only 40 minutes late and blamed "technical issues." He took to Twitter to vent his frustrations with the media's portrayal of the incident.

    Regarding Keith Moon: In a 1979 interview, Townshend claimed that Moon had consumed Ketamine pills.[41] During the concert, Moon passed out on his drum kit while the band was playing the song "Won't Get Fooled Again". The band stopped playing and a group of roadies carried Moon offstage. They gave him a shower and an injection of cortisone, then sent him back onstage after a thirty-minute delay. This is a rock star continues the show

    Shame really young for the pace of a superstar

  • Ria van Vuuren - 2013-03-12 18:18

    This is what happens when you are to young to handle being in the spotlight. That pressure, wrong "friends" and the use of drugs will be his downfall. My prediction is that he will go into rehab soon...
