And That’s A Wrap, London
Justin Bieber, who says he was still “short of breath” on Friday night, played his final UK show after a long week, on and off stage.
Justin Bieber is not back to his tiptop shape, but that didn’t stop him from completing his fourth and final show at London’s O2 Arena.
On Friday, the Biebs returned to the stage where he collapsed just 24 hours prior.
“still a little short of breathe [sic] tonight but was an incredible show. London fans go hard! 4 SOLD OUT O2 shows in a row!! #BLESSED,” the Canadian singer wrote on Twitter.
Earlier that day, Bieber made a scene when he faced a sea of photographers outside his hotel. The 19-year-old was also caught yelling at one paparazzo, “I’ll f**king beat the f**k out of you,” as his security tried to restrain him.
Since experiencing his “worst birthday,” Bieber has had a bumpy ride in London town. On Tuesday, the “Boyfriend” singer angered thousands of screaming fans after he arrived two hours late for a show at the O2. He later attempted to clear the air on how late he really was.
“last night I was scheduled after 3 opening acts to go on stage at 935 not 830 but because of technical issues I got on at 10:10 . . . i was 40 min late to stage,” Bieber wrote on Twitter. “there is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that.”
Things did start looking up for a brief moment when Bieber was honored by another legendary London arena -- Wembley Stadium -- for holding the record for the loudest scream ever logged in the venue’s history. For the curious, Bieber did show up on time to the award ceremony.
“too many blessings to allow the stress in. the press made things look nuts but really I have enjoyed London. The fans are incredible . . . so while I have seen some crazy stuff it is all smiles. Im gonna get some rest and keep doing what i love. Entertain all of u. thanks,” Bieber told his 35 million Twitter followers early Saturday morning.
Bieber’s rest period will be a short one. The Believe Tour picks up again on after the weekend in Portugal, where the singer is scheduled for shows on Monday and Tuesday.
