Although Justin Bieber put on a great performance on the ‘Today’ Show Sept. 10, he’s unfortunately making headlines for getting upset on stage instead of his fabulous singing and dancing. But the Biebs has a good reason for his freakout, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Justin Bieber, 21, showed the emotion he puts into his performances during his appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards Aug. 30. And just a few weeks later on the Today show Sept. 10, Justin’s emotion was shown in a different way — he freaked out at a cameraman for being in his way! It might have seemed like a bratty thing to do, but an insider EXCLUSIVELY told us that he flipped out because of the passion he has for what he does.
The Biebs had to be up extremely early for his appearance on Today, so it was easy to assume that maybe that was the reason for his snap. But a source close to Justin said his freak out was actually the result of all the hard work he’s been putting into his new music and major comeback!
“Justin is charging on all cylinders right now. He’s really putting his heart and soul into every performance, trying to make sure he consistently delivers to his fans,” the source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “This has been a big comeback for Justin and he’s clearly very emotional, especially right after a performance. His adrenaline is pumping when he’s on stage and he really gives it his all. He just wants everything to be perfect. Whether he’s crying or snapping after a performance it’s only because he cares so much.”
In case you missed it, after the Biebs performed his No. 1 hit, “What Do You Mean?,” cameras caught him saying, “Because the camera’s right here the whole time, I might as well not even dance. What do I do this for if they’re just gonna…” He was cut off by a commercial break, but he still isn’t happy that part of his frustration was on live television!
“He’s upset that the producers kept the cameras running to film that,” the source added. “He’s also embarrassed and really hopes something like this won’t undo all the hard work he’s put in to rehabilitating his image and career.”
Aww, poor Justin — he looked like a total jerk when he was really just trying to give fans his best effort! We don’t think it will affect his comeback, and we certainly hope fellow Beliebers will give him the benefit of the doubt!
