Dear Justin Bieber, Stop Crashing Other People's Concerts!

Justin jumped on stage to perform his hit song ‘Baby’ with Taylor Swift during her LA concert on Aug. 23.  But Tay’s not the only one who has been “Kanyed” by Justin.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Justin Bieber fan. (I’ll admit more than one of his songs have made it on to my iPod, although I definitely do not have Bieber fever.) But he needs to stop upstaging his friends’ (and girlfriend’s) performances!

At Taylor Swift‘s concert in LA, Justin surprised the audience with a rousing performance of ‘Baby,’ with Taylor adding backup vocals. Not unexpectedly, the audience went nuts for the Biebs. But since it was Taylor’s time to shine, he should have simply sat in his seat and enjoyed the show! Taylor herself even acknowledged that the fans screamed louder for him than her! (Taylor, it seems, is unfortunately becoming the poster girl for stage intruders. See: Kanye West, 2009 MTV VMAs.

But even worse — he did it to his girlfriend, too. Back in July, Selena Gomez brought Justin on stage, prompting screams for the tweenie boppers in attendance. A performance of ‘Cry Me A River’ later and Justin had the crowd wrapped around his little finger. Poor Selena didn’t stand a chance.

It would be one thing if Justin had a duet with the singers — then joining them wouldn’t be a big deal. It would actually be welcomed! But he doesn’t, so he shouldn’t. (Although, we wouldn’t complain if he recorded with either Taylor or Selena.)

Surely he’s not doing it on purpose, but he has to know the effect he has on young female concert-goers. (And sometimes their mothers.) He should respect the fact that when Taylor and Selena are on stage, the night belongs to them — not him.

Justin, if you’re so anxious for fan adoration, go on tour yourself and stop stealing the spotlight from your lady friends!

I can’t stand the little squirrel, he has a punk attitude and no manners. He could care less about those around him. He says he love his fans when in fact he loves the attention. He tries to dress like a thug or punker when all he is doing is making himself look like a little squirrel who wearing his daddy’s clothing like a 8 year old would. And on top of all this he can’t sing without autotune or lipsic. And I’m tired of hearing about him you can not read about any other celebrities anymore because all the media has bieber fever. By 23 years old he will be like the Back Street boys lost in the history of time. And a new Bieber will be on top.

I don’t think the point is that he’s intentionally stealing the spotlight but rather that is the result when he joins people on stage. Yes Justin has fun catchy songs, but so do these other singers and at their concerts they should be center stage! Clearly they’ve earned that right which is why they’re on tour in the first place. Every concert does not need to be a Bieber-fest.
