Urgh !
Dunno why teens worship someone they will never even speak to
I guess, he's the modern day Michael Jackson, but with less talent

It's a school day, how many of 'em will be falling asleep today

The higher they build them up, the harder they fall
I beg your pardon? He had an individual image, originality and star quality. He respected his fans and showed them how to behave. And what do you mean 'less talent'? He was a legend, he could sing. He could bring an audience to their feet just by saying he loved them. If anything, I'd compare her to Miss Copycat herself, Lady Gaga. But only by a tiny degree, I mean she is a good singer, but absolutely dreadful and monstrous in creating horrible fans whom she ironically calls 'Little Monsters'.

In a couple of years it'll be "Justin who?"
Fingers crossed.

Here's some footage of the booing.

Most stars would have had a PR statement out by now - with a plausible explanation and an apology. Very odd that this hasn't happened yet.
That reminds me of when Lady Gaga supported Take That on some of their concert dates in 2009. She decided not to perform in Manchester literally as the first support act (Gary Go) was about to walk on stage - she was definitely there as we heard her soundcheck! When she finally supported Take That for two of their Wembley Stadium gigs, she got booed. By 90,000 people!

The problem with some of these talents from abroad they have no respect for their English fans which proves it. Looking on his Wikipedia account seems to have received numerous awards, made money from different projects. He was promoted to early and basically everything has gone to his head and forgotten what he really is.

The management should refund half the money back for all the disappointing fans. Having a concert on a school weekday is madness. We know venues have to be booked, but if he has a big young fan base a weekend would have been ideal. He's not like the Rolling stones who have older people going to watch.

I think it just hasn't been thought through enough and they are exploiting him for money and publicity now.

Island Records, Raymond Braun Media Group and School Boy Records. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schoolboy_Records should all pull the plug on him or refund the fans. .

This sort of thing is exactly what happens when record companies and management companies don't keep a tight enough rein on the stars they're responsible for, and instead just turn into a bunch of yes men who make them believe they can do anything without fear of consequence.

I doubt any one of Bieber's representatives, handlers and hangers-on will have the guts to tell him what he did was unacceptable and should not happen again, and therefore this kind of thing will just continue.

This sort of thing has happened a lot, Amy Winehouse was notorious for it, but even she had an explanation, the lack of an explanation or an apology is the reason Bieber deserves all the flack he's getting right now

We were lucky enough to get The Script. but I heard she did it twice? Once poor Gary Go had to do a double set and the other time they had time to fly The Script back over at short notice. That's what I heard anyway - don't know if it's true. And yeah, I heard about the 90,000 fans booing her on one of the dates she did deign to appear.

On one of the dates I also heard that she'd said she was ill, only to be found drinking at the hotel by the lads on their return. She had abviously decided she was too important to be a support act.

Airlines are penalised for being late- jumped up little pop stars should incur fines also ,not good enough - the O2 should be responsible for not providing the service that the punters paid for with their ticket fees
- indulging his ego by not penalising him for not bothering to turn up on time
he has a responsability to the people who spend hard earned cash -it is disrespectful behaviour

His fans are very very young and even if they forgive him, the parents won't!!! Justin is obviously taking his fans for granted, not even apologising or explaining why he was two hours late. A lot of kids were very disappointed and had to leave early. If he becomes so unprofessional, the public can and probably will, turn on him. Look how the public turned on Amy Winehouse when she kept turning up to events drunk!! The fact is these "stars" have to perform, be professional and responsible or they will fade away. Still, not a word from Justin himself regarding what happened last night, only his agency has apologised!! He was reported out drinking and clubbing until the early hours!!!

Was watching some breakfast show this morning that had a parent and a disappointed little girl. She pointed out that it was a shame that the minimum wage security staff were getting it in the neck (as if they could do anything about it) whilste talentless bimboy carries on regardless in his own spoilt way.

I mean - this guy is SERIOUSLY untalented. Has anyone seen him in that episode of CSI? He had a few minutes acting to do and he couldn't even do that right!

It's unacceptable to turn up 2 hours late for his performance, but it is unforgivable to do so without an explanation.

What an utter nincompoop this boy is.

Barely out of nappies & it appears that he has already contracted Divaitis!

Bieber is talented. People just look like idiots when they say he isn't. The amount of grief this guy gets, especially online is just ridiculous.

Normally he has a good relationship with his fans. Hopefully there's a good excuse for what happened at the O2. If not, the people who missed out should be refunded, or given free tickets for his next show.

I know someone who works in that venue, and were in the backstage area. No one knows for sure what happened, but the word is he may have smoked some weed that was too strong for him, and he and his hangers on had to wait it out and he was apparently trying to cure himself with Red Bull drinks, but then kept needing the toilet.

Travesty.

Usually the ones that find him talented are children that haven't grown up and heard any proper music yet. He's nothing but a cash cow.

He's talented. If he was "comedy audition on X Factor" quality, he wouldn't have made a dime.

We had to wait the same amount of time on Saturday in Nottingham for him to come out.
Why because he made everyone wait at the o2 is it such a bigger issue.?
Obviously there is a reason why in both places he made people wait but like I have said in another post. My daughter said she had waited over 200 days to see him. Waiting another hour and half was nothing.! And once he came out you forgot you waited so long.

The O2 is a long way out from central London hence a trek for most concert-goers who need to travel into central London first. It's not a venue people drive to, and it's a school night for a young audience. I'm sure every act is briefed on this.

Bieber must now give these fans a free show in return, it's such a poor example to set them. If he doesn't I'm sure he'll suffer through sales and with social media it won't be just the UK.

In the end, the main problem was not the wait, but the problem of getting home. Very difficult for many to get back from the O2 to the main train stations in central London after 11,30pm...and many main line trains stop running shortly after midnight. Parking is expensive at the O2 so a lot of people will have been reliant on public transport, hence having to leave shortly after the concert started..............thus a lot of upset children and angry parents,. They could hardly have stayed to the end of the concert and then be stranded with no transport home.

Not only should Biebers management have been aware of this but also the O2 management. As to what the appropriate action should have been, i do not wish to speculate!

But by the time he came on last night, trains and buses were getting ready to close, and even the venue itself. It seems your daughter and yourself got lucky the other night. Maybe he couldn't score his drugs that evening or something.

Exactly why should people be 'idiots' if they do not find Bieber talented? Whether someone is talented or not is a matter of opinion!
