Have you ever had to work through a day when you haven't felt so great? When your head is pounding and your stomach churning and the sweat is rolling down your forehead? Most of us have. Including Justin Bieber, who sang and danced through his Glendale, Arizona concert last night despite a case of the upchucks. Stars, they're just like us! Well, maybe not. Most of us haven't puked in front of 18,000 screaming fans, had it filmed and uploaded to YouTube, and had it all over the Internet the next day. Poor Biebs. Unlike most teens, he couldn't get into bed and have mom fetch him some chicken noodle soup. The show must go on!
It all started last night when halfway through Biebs' set, as he was singing "Out of Town Hurl" -- excuse me! -- "Out of Town Girl" that Biebs suddenly doubled over and gave the backup dancers a view of what he'd had for dinner that evening. Poor guy. And no, no one held his hair back. Stop making jokes, people! Have you no sympathy or shame?
Anyway, Biebs then actually got on a crane and was lifted high above the crowd. Oh man. That doesn't sound like a good idea when your stomach is doing flip flops! But Biebs isn't working at a fast food joint. He's got thousands of people screaming his name. He must give them what they paid for. A show! And can you imagine having thousands of people screaming when you're feeling sick? Ugh. I'm getting sick just thinking about it. Especially that 40-year-old truck driver in the front row. Dude, really?
After pushing through a couple of songs like a champ, Biebs then disappeared from the stage for a few. I can only imagine what was going on backstage. People running around like mad screaming for Theraflu, probably.
He then came back and apologized to the audience. He said:
It's hard for me, you know, not feeling great and throwing up in front of a bunch of people. Will you love me even though I'm throwing up on stage?
Love him even though he's throwing up? Aww, c'mon. I'm sure those girls were dying to get onstage and wipe his brow. Not to mention taking his temperature. Biebs then finished his set. And hopefully went home and got some rest!
If for some reason you've got a hankering to see a guy barfing, here's some video.
Do you think he should have left the show or did he do the right thing by continuing?
