Justin Bieber has been pretty much impossible to like in the past, from the infamous pissing in a mop bucket incident to the genuine brat attack he had in his lawyers office, his behavior has been pretty damned terrible, but is the press determined to continue this narrative - even if the 21-year-old pop star's behaviour has really changed?
After a recent concert for the Today show, in which Bieber performed for fans in the pouring rain, some media outlets have called the star out for having a 'tantrum' on live TV. But I'll let you watch the 11-second clip for yourself to see if you agree with them.
Although Bieber is clearly complaining about his working conditions preventing him from being able to perform properly, you would be hard pressed to call the way he expresses his grievances a 'tantrum.'
Now whether you're a Bieber fan or not, I'm starting to get the impression that his 'attitude problem' is becoming more and more constructed by the media than by Bieber's actions themselves. Especially now he is trying to redeem himself after his past behavior.
Calling someone out in front of hundreds of people like this might not be professional, but in Bieber's eyes his performance had cut to a commercial break (he almost certainly didn't realize he was still live) and he wanted to sort the errant camera placement out as quickly as possible without disrupting the show.
If I was in the driving rain after an early morning start trying to dance on a weird claustrophobic stage, I would probably be pretty tetchy too. What do you guys think?
