The 19-year-old has been awarded with “The Loudest Scream” at London’s Wembley Stadium — a title recorded at Bieber’s June 9, 2012, show.
And in case anyone was wondering, he showed up on time to pick up the plaque on Tuesday. Bieber’s award also inducts him into the Wembley Way Walk of Fame, which has honored the likes of Coldplay and David Beckham.
“It’s such an honor to be part of history, and thank you to my amazing U.K. Beliebers for helping me put on an incredible show last year,” he said, according to a press release.
But those U.K. Beliebers were screaming for a different reason at his London show on Monday, when the “Boyfriend” singer showed up late for his own show at the O2 Arena.
After much outcry from Believe tour concertgoers, Bieber took to Twitter the next day to clear the air about exactly how late he 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,” he wrote. “there is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that.”
Bieber’s Wembley award comes after a packed week that began with the Canadian pop star’s “worst birthday.” Following reports that his night out in London was cut short due to underage partygoers in his entourage, Bieber again took to Twitter to talk about the “rumors rumors and more rumors.”
“nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt now im just gonna be positive. cant bring me down . . . fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u cant tell me different. we know the truth,” he wrote.
“so make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive . . . or say when i came out of my show with my shirt off because after performing for 2 hours i might be sweaty i was going into a club (really?) . . . or any girl i stand next to is my girl or that I dont care, or that i dont feel, or that a 19 year old going to a club in europe is wild,” he continued.
Bieber ended his Twitter rant with, “now back to this music.”
What do you think of Justin Bieber’s apology for his tardiness this week? Do you have tickets for an upcoming “Believe” show?
