And remarkably, he didn’t even have to stop singing!
While performing “Out of Town Girl” during the opening night of his much-anticipated Believe tour in Glendale, Ariz., Justin Bieber turned his back on the crowd, hunched over, and barfed on stage.
Though Bieber quickly trotted away following the incident, according to reports, he returned a short while later and asked the crowd, “Will you love me even though I’m throwing up on stage?” (I’m going to venture a guess and say, yes, Justin, they will.)
You know what was a good choice, though? That backing track! Not even a little bit of puke could stop that track from delivering Beiber’s smooth “vocals” to the crowd. Good job, backing track. You kept the words flowing out of Justin’s mouth, even as a whole lot of other stuff was flowing out, too.
Sarcasm aside, we do feel a little bit bad for Bieber. Getting sick is no fun — especially on a stage in front of 15,000 screaming fans. Watch the video (if you can stomach it) below:
