What a bad week it's been for Justin Bieber. From his crappy birthday, to being slammed by Olivia Widle for never wearing a shirt, The Biebs hasn't exactly started his 19th year out on a good foot. Tonight, however, it got even worse when he passed out on stage during a performance at London's O2 arena and was taken to the hospital.
His rep told E!, "He got oxygen from emergency personnel. He insisted on finishing the show. He is on the way to the hospital right now." Sources said he told the audience he didn't feel well and went backstage to meet with a doctor who recommended he end the show then. Justin, however, went back out and finished the show before being transported to the hospital.

Fortunately, it sounds like he's going to be okay. He recently tweeted:
getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love
So phew. The question now is why it happened. The most likely cause is exhaustion; he's not exactly known for taking it easy. Or maybe it's something in the air since Kelly Osbourne was also rushed to the hospital today after she collapsed. (Of course, that happened in Los Angeles, so it would have to be in a lot of air.) Or maybe it had something to do with that gas mask he's been sporting. Could that be some medical treatment in disguise rather than the quirky statement we first assumed?
At this point we don't know. But we do know that the Biebs seems to be doing well now -- well enough to post a shirtless picture of himself on Instagram. The caption reads, "Getting better listening to Janice Joplin." Always thinking of his fans, that Justin. But oh, isn't Olivia going to love that?
Get better, Biebs.
Any guesses as to why Justin Bieber collapsed on stage?
