Justin Bieber late again (but definitely not gay)
Justin Bieber has sparked anger in Dubai by arriving on stage two hours late - and has fallen victim to Twitter trolls who posted false reports that he's gay.
Justin Bieber on stage in Dubai
In a repeat of the tardiness that provoked outrage in London back in March, the Canadian popstar arrived two hours late on stage for a show in Dubai. Fans at the country's Sevens Stadium were told only that 19 year-old Bieber was "on his way" until he finally appeared after 10pm.
One outraged parent told Sky News: "Clearly, having done this in London and being slated for it has made no difference to this performer and his management team. My wife and nine-year-old daughter, along with friends have been waiting for four hours at the venue for the concert to start. We are disgusted by this lack of consideration for paying fans, many of whom should be in bed by now in readiness for school."
Having maintained a squeaky clean image since he rose to fame in 2009, Bieber has had a nightmare 2013 so far, with a series of incidents including lateness, altercations with paparazzi, drugs found on his tour bus and a spectacularly insensitive message left in the Anne Frank Museum guestbook to name but a few.
Definitely not gay though
However, at least one recent scandal hasn't been his fault. E! Online's Twitter account yesterday claimed Bieber was about to come out. The message, posted around 1pm Eastern Time, read: "Exclusive: Justin Bieber to E!online: I'm a gay". It was followed shortly afterwards by another post, which read: 'Exclusive: Selena Gomez tells E! she will fully supporting Justin in his coming out.'
Having set Twitter alight, the group responsible for hacking E! Online's account finally owned up an hour later with the message: 'The Syrian Electronic Army was here! Fans of @justinbieber, you have been trolled by @Official_SEA12 #SEA'.
E! Online, Twitter
E! Online posts that its Twitter account had been 'compromised'
Having regained control of its Twitter account, E! Online later deleted the offending tweets and clarified that it had been hacked.
Still, we wonder if Justin would have posted the following tweet if he'd known what was about to happen.
Justin Bieber, Twitter
When are his fans gonna realise that he doesn’t give a sh1t about them! I know people like Will.i.am speak of how talented he is being able to play lots of instruments but so what. Hitler could play the piano but doesn’t mean I want to hear it! Bieber is an obnoxious, spoilt little brat who doesn’t deserve the success he has been so kindly given by those he makes wait for hours. I would have loved to have seen the little sh1t and that paparazzi guy fight. Bieber would have got he's head kicked in and it would have done him a world of good!
This little sissy boy is in love with himself,Gay or not still a little s**t!
Who the hell buys his crap music and this queers albums!Its the little girls that admire/worship him not knowing he would prefer a dick then a ****! makes me sick!
