Bieber's Crew

Stages Mutiny

Over Japan Concert

5/5/2011 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber's scheduled concerts in Japan could be torpedoed because of a crew mutiny ... TMZ has learned.

0504_justin_bieber_EX_TMZ_01
Many crew members have flat out refused to go to Japan for two concerts later this month, because they're afraid of the cancer risks from the recent nuclear disaster.  They also fear another earthquake.  Short story -- they are refusing to go to Osaka for a May 17 concert and another concert two days later in Tokyo.

Today in Adelaide, Australia, an angry Scooter Braun -- Justin's manager -- exploded at the crew ... sources who were there tell TMZ.

Braun told the crew, "Man the f**k up and do the right thing by these kids."

But during the meeting -- the 3rd one in 4 days -- members of the crew fired back that it wasn't safe to go and Avril Lavigne and Slash had canceled their Japan concerts.

Scooter said Justin did not want to disappoint the kids who bought tickets and that the Japanese government had given an "all clear" -- that it was safe to be in both cities.

And Scooter noted, Maroon 5 is full steam ahead for its upcoming Japanese concerts.

As of now, there's a stalemate, and the Japanese concerts are in jeopardy.

Scooter is an idiot - NO concert of any kind is worth even the smallest risk. It was proven after the event that Japan concealed just how dangerous it truly was - there is nothing wrong with waiting a few months.

Let see..would I risk radiation exposure near melting reactors in order to put on a Justin Bieber concert? Seems like a small sacrifice to make.

I would go if I was them. I think Justin is doing the right thing, wanting to go there and offer them a distraction from all the drama. I wouldn't be scared of going in Tokyo or Osaka given the cir***stances. I don't see why they should be avoided like the plague, as long as you don't get near the radiation plant, I don't see the problem.

I agree, as I posted earlier, Bieber go to Japan get a local Japanese crew and no one is disappointed.

This kid is the male version of Miley Cyrus. All hype and very little talent. To be fair we aren't 12-16 years old.

Maybe someone should take over this situation. It may not help Miley or Justin now after what the Mason-Lewis filth has done to that superstar talent that should have gotten a record deal a long time ago, but it will help the future. Especially if those people are put out of business permanently which is my goal.

"I wonder how many of these crew members smoke cigarettes, eat fatty, greasy sugary food and/or meat" You are maybe the most retarded human being ever to worthlessly exist....
The radiation levels are at the highest ever recorded, garanteed death for all those with 1000 miles, and far far far beyond - wait and see over the next few years - that nasty crap is reaching your dumb ass in america too (your children, if you ever ruin the earth with any, will be even more retarded than you, you dribbly retarded maggot, a feat previously thought impossible in the dumbed-down, retard, braindead sheeple catagory {my, aren't you proud!}
Go and celebrate the faked killing of osama (who has been dead for over 9 years) with the rest of your completely dumbed-down generation of american retards...
Rome has fallen and so has the fatty, worthless fast-food rotting once-great american empire.
Enjoy your slide into the 3rd world you bloated yanky festering pile of garbage...

"Hi my name is SCOOTER and here are my thoughts on nuclear safety."

This has nothing to do with "the kids" and everything to do with "the money." Is beiber gonna take care of the whole crew and their families when/if they develop cancer in X years from now? Justin doesn't care because he's ****ing 16.

PrincessGinger (honestly fat whore, you are NOBODYS princess - your dumb-ass dad gave you a false sense of EVERYTHING!!)
Surely your troll paycheck can't be worth making such a dumb-ass of yourself - or maybe it is for a wall-mart tubby maggot such as yourself....
I feel pity for the shame you must feel everytime you show your grotty tubby face in public, i really do. But alas, the braindead, dumbed-down american media bunny that you are, you sadly cant get you fat head/fat ass out of the hole in the ground that was perfectly created/dug by your masters to bury you in. Your ****ty 3rd world, in debt, reality was handed down to you, ****head, by your masters... Makes you wanna wave the flag don't it!!! hahahahahaha
Must suck to have been born in Rome while it was collapsing....
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Enjoy the circular momentum you're feeling as you follow your sinking economy down the toilet...
"Obama, Obama, O-...****..."
hahahahhaha
How does it feel knowing as you die that India and China are taking over as the next superpowers, whiloe you, your economy, your government and you fat, 'tardo fellow yanks sink into the pile of **** that your (once great) nation has begun
HAHAHAHA bye bye...

Sorry, but no little teenaged twit, trying to play the badass grownup, concert is going to come before my life and health. And, maybe the crew won't die, maybe they just end up with some lifelong debilitating disease from the exposure.

Funny how you can almost guage the age of those saying how Bieber is acting more mature than his crew. If you all were around a little longer you would know that we are constantly being bombarded with "this is healthy or safe" nonsense, then a few years later someones growing a arm out of their forhead. Or dying from something that was deemed safe by our government or another government.

And, sorry if I don't put my absolute trust in the Japanese government for keeping Americans safe. And, Bieber, grow some hair on your balls before you try to strong arm your crew into following your little egocentric, childishly invincible act.
