Twenty-three year-old mega-pop diva/Tiny Terror Justin Bieber is currently on his third World Tour, with Asian dates in Japan, India, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia. But NOT China. The “Sorry” singer has been banned from performing in Beijing for “bad behavior.”
According to a statement from the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture:
His series of misbehaviors while living abroad and during his performances in China has caused public resentment. To regulate the domestic entertainment market and purify its environment, we find it inappropriate to bring in performers with bad behaviors.”
CNN called a Chinese ticketing website that is selling tickets for two Bieber concerts scheduled on September 16 in Beijing and September 23 in Shanghai. A website staffer was not aware of the Beijing government’s decision but said it will refund in full if the approval doesn’t come through.
A source at the Shanghai cultural authority, which approves concerts in that city, told CNN that it was unlikely that Shanghai would allow Bieber to perform there, given the decision Beijing has already made.
Bieber is no stranger to controversy, after denying reports for groping and spitting on fans, pleading guilty for illegally street racing and for recently not knowing the Spanish words to his latest hit “Despacito.”
Now, if we can get him banned from the US…. Surely Trump’s travel ban can do SOMETHING good and keep that trouble-making Canadian refugee OUT.
