Eek. It didn’t take long for Justin Bieber to issue a personal apology to the fans he abandoned at a show in Oslo after they wouldn’t listen to him. Click inside to read the lengthy message he wrote!
Justin Bieber, 21, definitely left a ton of fans in Oslo very unhappy on Thursday, Oct. 29 when he walked off stage before performing. The “Sorry” singer was there to record a performance for a TV show, but later said that when a group of fans in the front row continued to misbehave he couldn’t handle it anymore.

It didn’t take long for Justin to address storming off an Oslo stage, did it? Not only did Justin apologize in great detail, but he also explains what sent him storming off the stage and even ripping off his headset.
“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.,” Justin explained in the opening of his statement on Instagram. “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.”
Justin is referring to a group of girls who were pressed against the front of stage he was set to perform on. In video of the incident, Justin tries to dry a wet spot on the stage but it appears the girls all go to rip the cloth right out from underneath his feet. After he tells them to settle down they let him clean up the spot, but then appear to start reaching for him and cloth again. This frustrates Justin almost instantly, and he declares he’s not doing the show as he walks backstage in a huff. You can watch the video HERE.
To be fair, Justin was likely trying to dry the stage for safety purposes. As many of his fans know he is pretty animated during his performances — he loves to dance and interact with fans — and a wet spot was not only dangerous for him, but also his fans. Unfortunately, the excitement was just too much to handle for the fans, and Justin called the whole thing off.

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 im 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.
As of the time this article was published it was unclear whether or not Justin would reschedule the performance for a later date. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to his rep for comment.
