Justin Bieber suffers concussion in Paris
It has been a problem-filled week for Justin Bieber and it doesn’t seem to be getting better.
The singer recently suffered a concussion when he walked into a glass wall backstage between songs and knocked himself out.
But the 18-year-old Canadian pop star managed to finish his set on stage, but passed out briefly in his dressing room after.
In an interview with TMZ, the Boyfriend singer said: "I was performing, and I was going offstage and, basically, I'm in Paris and performing on the tallest building in Paris, and there's a glass wall behind me, but there's a railing behind the glass. And so I went to reach for the railing and I hit my head on the glass," he explained.
"And I guess me and glass windows don't really go together."
The Biebster was referring to the viral video of himself going through a glass revolving door back in 2010.
Bieber later posted on Twitter that he’s doing well and joked about the incident, saying:
"I will see u again Glass. I will have my revenge. BIEBER vs GLASS. MGM LAS VEGAS 2013. lol. #GottaLaughAtYourself.”
The concussion comes one day after Bieber, on a brief tour of major European cities to promote upcoming album Believe, was met with a crush of fans before a free concert in Oslo leading to reports of dozens of young girls being injured.
Bieber's record label, Universal Music, said in a statement to celebrity site E! Online that it "regrets strongly that some of those who were Justin concert had a bad experience."
Bieber performed a free, six-song concert at the Oslo Opera House on Wednesday that is planned to be featured on his upcoming one-hour NBC television special to be aired next month.
The 18-year-old singer was forced to tweet a safety message ahead of the show after police were unable to control the crowds of fans trying to catch a glimpse of the star.
"for the show to happen u must all listen to the police. we are all concerned for your safety and i want what is best for u. please listen," Bieber posted to his 22 million Twitter followers.
TMZ said 49 young girls were injured and 14 taken to hospitals, and police came close to declaring a state of emergency in the capital. Those reports could not be immediately confirmed.
This is not the first time Bieber fever has caused crowd control and safety issues. In November 2009, fans stampeded a shopping mall in Long Island, New York ahead of an appearance by the pop star, forcing organizers to cancel the event.
