Things were just NOT going Justin Bieber’s way while he was in Europe last week. A video has surfaced of the Biebs performing ‘What Do You Mean?’ in Spain, during which he grows incredibly frustrated toward the audience for clapping offbeat. He even yells at the fans for their mistake! Watch here.
Justin Bieber’s fans were having a great time clapping along to his performance of “What Do You Mean?” in Spain on Oct. 28…but their rhythmic skills weren’t quite up to par for the singer! After noticing that the crowd was clapping offbeat, Justin just couldn’t let it go, and totally called the audience out right in the middle of the song. Harsh!

Toward the end of his performance on Spanish television show El Hormiguero, the Biebs spoke over the music and actually scolded his fans. “At least clap on the right notes,” he ordered. “Come on guys, stop, stop, stop, stop!” He showed them how it was done, but made sure to point out the mistake once again. “It’s like this — if you’re gonna clap, at least clap on beat.”
He went on to continue the song, but was visibly pretty frustrated. However, he did make sure to add in a little giggle, so it doesn’t seem like he took the situation all too seriously. It was definitely a tense week for Justin in Europe, though. Because of his busy schedule, he was booked for appearance after appearance, and the pressure definitely got to him.
While performing in Oslo on Oct. 29, he got angry at fans again when the front row audience members tried to grab a towel he was using to mop up a spill on the stage. He was so frustrated this time that he even stormed right off stage and refused to finish the rest of the show!
“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.,” he wrote on Instagram afterward. “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 im sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think it was rude of Justin to demand his fans clap on beat?
