Girls Gone Wild

At Justin Bieber Mall Signing

11/20/2009 7:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mall SigningCops tell TMZ a young girl was hospitalized this afternoon after fans went crazy ... anticipating the arrival of 15-year-old music star Justin Bieber at a Long Island mall.

Cops said the girl was taken out of the Roosevelt Field mall on a stretcher just moments ago.

Bieber never showed, because over 1,000 screaming girls showed up and mall security lost control of the crowd. The senior vice president for sales at Def Jam Records, 44-year-old James Roppo (mug shot, below right), ended up getting arrested.

Bieber posted the following message on his Twitter account, pleading with his fans to leave the mall:

"The event at roosevelt mall is cancelled. please go home. the police have already arrested one person from my camp. I dont want anyone hurt."

The injured girl should be okay.

UPDATE
: Employees at Abercrombie Kids tell TMZ someone in the mall falsely screamed out that Justin was inside their store, so a ton of kids rushed the place. The workers said a fight broke out in front of the store -- and that it wasn't the only fight that occurred.

He is the kid that both Usher and Justin Timberlake wanted to sign. He eventually chose Usher. His videos are all on You Tube. The tweens needed someone new to like anyway...Miley is getting to grown up to be a role model for little girls.

Obviously, the mall underestimated his popularity. What a mess that turned out to be in Long Island.

Maybe if the parents of these hormonal teenage girls instilled values such as a "celebrity" is a person and nothing more, they wouldn't act so hysterical. He's 15 - looks 13 - and is singing songs about love as though he is somehow experienced. Parents, do your fricking jobs.

He looks like pretty much half the boys you'd see in any middle school across the USA .. so what's the big deal? I heard his song, not like he's the next greatest singer in the world. I don't get it?
