COPENHAGEN – Canadian pop star Justin Bieber says he stopped a concert in Oslo after one song because fans got in his way as he tried to wipe up liquid off the stage floor.
On Instagram, the Stratford, Ont., native wrote that he “chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen.”

Videos posted on social media show a visibly irritated Bieber chiding fans.
“Yo, listen to me. Are you listening? OK, I’m trying to wipe the floor. Gimme a second, yo,” he says.
When the fans continue to grab at the cloth he was using to wipe the floor, Bieber storms off stage, saying: “Guys, nevermind. I am done. I’m not doing the show.”
The 21-year-old singer removed his cap and headset as he walked off the stage at Oslo’s Chateau Neuf concert hall before some 1,000 screaming fans.
Bieber, who earlier this week quit a radio show in Spain, blamed a rough week, saying “I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting.”
“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.
“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.”
Bieber concludes: “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.”
