For the second time in less than a week, Justin Bieber has been caught scolding his fans. Last week, he stormed off stage after fans in Oslo wouldn’t chill while he tried to wipe the floor or something. He later apologized, but it was a reminder that even the new and improved Justin Bieber is still pretty reactionary. Now comes a video out of Spain that shows Bieber stopping mid-performance to scold a bunch of his teenage fans for clapping offbeat during an acoustic performance on a Spanish TV show of “What Do You Mean?”
When the audience of teenage girls began clapping along with beat, it didn’t sound quite right, so Bieber—either because it was legitimately messing him up or because he’s just kind of a dick—paused and said, “At least clap on the right notes—come on, guys! Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop.” And then, like the true musical prodigy he is, showed them how it’s properly done. “If you’re going to clap, at least clap on beat,” he said again. The audience didn’t care and happily took his advice, but yeah, kind of a dick.
