Over the past few months, Justin Bieber‘s behavior has gone from “tolerable” to “weird, troubling and douchey,” and it’s been getting to the point where a Britney Spears style meltdown is right on the horizon. And last night, Justin ended up fainting during his concert and had to be hospitalized, which most people would simply take as a red light. But this is showbiz, and Justin is a commodity that brings in millions of dollars a night, so of course he’s going back on stage tonight. From HuffPo …
“As far as we are concerned everything is on, on, on” for Friday’s show, Jeremy King said. “He was treated by our team of medics and after further examination they didn’t find anything more serious or worrying.” A spokeswoman for Bieber said he was recovering after Thursday’s incident, which saw him given oxygen before returning to the stage. “Justin has been released from the hospital after a check-up and, while he’s feeling a little under the weather, he’s currently planning on going ahead with tonight’s show,” the spokeswoman said Friday. She demanded anonymity to discuss the star’s condition.
Most people would assume that a nineteen-year-old fainting during his own concert would be a sign that maybe the poor bastard should take a night off or otherwise put on the brakes before he crashes and burns. But nope! Let’s just wheel him out there and see what happens! Look, we’re by no means Justin’s biggest fans, but at least we respect him enough to ask him to cool it before he seriously hurts himself. Between the constant working, the rabid killer fans, and the psychological morphing that comes with giving a teen millions of dollars and an army of yes men, this is completely unhealthy for him. He doesn’t have to outright stop, but if someone doesn’t step in and set an appropriate pace for him, he’s going to completely wipe out.
getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love
