Justin Bieber cancels on Portugal over ticket sales

So let’s just say this right now: Justin Bieber didn’t exactly have a banner week last week. But that’s okay, because fresh new week! New opportunities! So let’s start the week off right by — Aw crap, he just cancelled a concert in Portugal because he didn’t think enough people bought tickets. So this doesn’t bode well. TMZ reports …

Justin Bieber cancelled his Portugal concert Tuesday — not because he’s sick, not because he’s melting down — because ticket sales were “soft” and it felt like the right thing to do. Just tell that to the fans who are getting stood up. Sources connected to Justin have confirmed … it was a “business decision” that triggered the cancellation. Our sources say ticket sales were still “good … more than 60%” … just not good enough.

Granted, I’m not a mathematician, but I’m pretty sure that 60% of a stadium is still a ton of people and a ton of money. Most people would still play that venue, especially since if they didn’t it would disappoint thousands of fans and cost the venue a ton of money, but then again, Justin thinks walking around in cheetah-print diaper pants is also a good idea. Do not trust Justin’s judgement.
