Justin Bieber let his temper get the better of him again when he stormed offstage in Oslo, Norway.
On Thursday night, after performing just one song, Bieber got flustered and angry, announced he wasn’t going to finish the show and walked offstage.
A video shot with a cellphone has surfaced of the incident, showing a clearly unnerved Bieber telling screaming, excited fans something like, “Yo listen to me, are you listening? OK, I’m trying to wipe the floor, give me a second, yo,” before exclaiming, “Guys, never mind, I’m done. I’m not doing the show.”
Bieber took to Instagram to post his apology immediately following the incident, blaming lack of sleep, among other things, for his actions.
He said, “Sadly it’s Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be ‘on’ as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen. Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from. I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting. Unfortunately people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed I’m sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.. With love Justin.”

Apparently, Bieber is so popular in Norway that, according to NBC, some schools rescheduled exams around the concert so that students could attend, and the Norwegian daily website VG said that when Bieber’s private jet left Oslo’s airport in the middle of the night, he left fans “shaken and some in tears.”
Fans are understandably upset by this and are sounding off on his Instagram post. After sifting through the thousands of heart emoji posts, you can find some pretty angry fans who want Bieber to take responsibility for his actions.
One person simply commented, “You’re kind of an ass for doing that.”
Another person went into a little more detail, apparently in response to some other comments. “I can understand this type of [thing] happening once, but this has happened far too many times I can’t even keep count, and the fact that he is so condescending stating that he WILL change his ways, he has been saying that for years and I have seen little [to] no sign of improvement. And the fact that he disrespects people who take time out of their day to watch him live, and that’s how he repays them?”
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen bad behavior from Bieber, and he has, on many an occasion, claimed he was going to change his little-boy tantrum-throwing ways, but this was the second such incident of bad behavior just that day. Also on Thursday, Bieber walked out of a particularly terrible interview, to the bewilderment of the radio hosts.
