There are few things in life as unpleasant as watching someone throw up, but man oh man, if it’s a celebrity throwing up, that’s a game changer.
Justin Bieber took to the stage Sunday in Arizona to perform on the first stop of his “Believe” tour, and ended up vomiting during his first song, “Out of Town Girl.”
In the many videos of the incident, the Biebs can be seen hurrying off stage after the spew, while his dancers continue to maneuver around the pile of puke. Luckily for the audience, no one missed a single word of the song as the backing track continued on.
After seeking medical help backstage, Bieber then completed “Never Say Never” and made it through the beginning of “Beauty and the Beat” before exiting the stage again.
On his return he told the crowd, “It’s hard for me, you know, not feeling great and throwing up in front of a bunch of people. Will you love me even though I’m throwing up on stage?”
After the concert concluded, Bieber referenced the less than impressive moment on Twitter, writing, “Great show. Getting better for tomorrow’s show. Love u” and “milk was a bad choice”.
Because no performer has ever been informed about the dangers of lactic acid. Maybe Biebs should lay off the “milk” for a while. Let’s just hope we don’t see “Genuine Justin Bieber Vomit” on eBay anytime soon.
