'There's Nothing Wrong With Justin Bieber,' Claims Scooter Braun
Justin Bieber's recent antics in London may have led some people to believe that there is something wrong with the Canadian singer but his longtime manager Scooter Braun has categorically rejected those claims.
He was then asked why Bieber decided to call off his planned concert in Portugal. He claimed that technical issues were the reasons behind the singer's decision to cancel that show and there is no truth in anything else that the press is inferring to.
"It has nothing to do with anything other than that. Tell everyone Justin is good, really good," Braun added.
After Bieber opted out of his show in Portugal, it was assumed that he did so due to his nightmare visit to the UK, where he endured what he himself called 'worst birthday,' got booed during a concert for being late, and spent some time in the hospital after fainting due to shortness of breath.
Meanwhile, Hollywood actress Jada Pinkett Smith, whose son Jaden Smith is a close friend of Bieber's, has criticised the press for constantly harassing young artists.
Addressing her fans on Facebook, she wrote: "This last week, I had to really evaluate the communication in regard to our young artists in the media. I was trying to differentiate cyber-bullying from how we attack and ridicule our young stars through media and social networks. It is as if we have forgotten what it means to be young or even how to behave like good ol' grown folk. Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous?"
"Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19 year old [Bieber] who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well?"
"Imagine yourself, at their age, with the spotlights, challenges and responsibilities. Most of us would have fallen to the waste side before we could even get to a crashed Ferrari, a controversial romance, several heart breaks, or an Oscar nomination at NINE," she added.
