Justin Bieber -- I'm Doing Japan No Matter What

5/6/2011 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber is going to Japan this month no matter what ... TMZ has learned -- despite his crew staging an outright mutiny ... and refusing to go with him.

0504_justin_bieber_EX_TMZ_02

The Biebs is scheduled to perform across the Pacific in two weeks -- once in Osaka and once in Tokyo -- but as we previously reported, many of his crew members are flat out REFUSING to take the trip ... because they're afraid of the cancer risks from the recent nuclear disaster.

We're told the crew is still locked in stalemate over the concerts -- but the Biebs has decided ... he's hitting Japan with or without his crew.

If Bieber doesn't have the manpower for stadium gigs -- we're told he'll take on whatever smaller venues he can ... all the way down to homeless shelters.

See? Good things happen to those who Belieb.

what a bunch of ignorant comments. you don't like his music ... fine ... don't listen to it. this kid is the hardest working kid in america ... he works harder than you.

he recognizes the situation in japan sucks and that for 2 hours he can make thousands of screaming teenagers forget how much it sucks ... for him to say i'm playing no matter what shows intelligence and integrity. Something the commenters so far lack.

he could sit down with his guitar and microphone and do the concert acoustically and the crowd would still love it.

this article and the attitude of his crew just shows america needs to open a science book a few more times in school

Agree with you 100%! Well said. Just a bunch of jealous grown ups acting like big ass babies. I commend him for sticking to his guns and wanting to keep those kids happy. He has never had a sex, drug or alcohol scandal-that says alot about him. Most kids that famous his age have already been to rehab.

JB,

Good luck on the Japan leg of your tour. I heard a rumor once that if you bathe in radio active water you grow facial hair, your voice will get deeper and your balls will drop. You should try it - let me know the outcome.

I lived in PA closer to the 3-Mile-Island disaster than he will be performing to the Japanese nuclear plant. Guest what? I'm not glowing or sick. He's doing the right thing and showing love and respect for the Japanese. Maybe you clueless haters should get rid of all your Japanese cars and gadgets. After all you might get contaminated.

i've heard terrible things about how he treats his crew -- he's super cheap -- even tried to make the crew PAY for their own lunches & catering when they were on tour with him. Live Nation put a stop to it. He's Usher's protegee so I'm not surprised he's cheap and treats crew like crap. i'm sure there are big cancellation fees he'd be on the hook for with japanese promoters that he's not willing to incur despite making an estimated $300K per night. he'll sit in a hotel room until he goes on stage -- the crew will have to be working their asses off for days being exposed. if it's a union show, they should intervene.

Does this kids' ego know no bounds? Does he not have enough money and attention that he and his management team feel the need to try and get richer off a country that is not only still suffering but in mourning as well? What a disgusting little puke.

You're all a bunch of F***IN IDIOTS!!!!
-J. Morrison.

Seriously, I'ma cynical, burned out leftover metalhead refugee of the late 80's...
and even I APPLAUD TH EBALLS ON THIS KID.

There isn't just HIS money to be made...there is a LOT of LOCAL REVENUE generated by a big show like this...security, venue staff, ad reps.....vendor sales...are you all DUMB or WHAT???

This kid going over there is a shot in the arm for the local economy....**** THOSE ******* who won't go, because their lack ability to MAN UP, SEE THE BIG PICTURE, and DO THE RIGHT ****ING THING just cost them all thier ****ing jobs.

*******.

A little Nipponese kid can sit there and wallow in it,
but you can't take it for a few days, you big *******??

Explain that to your kids,
when you tell them why daddy can't buy them that bicycle,
but hey at least you didn't have to go to Japan.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

OMG! making them buy their own food is treating them badly? Seriously...how many other employers buy their staff meals all day every day..not too many. Shows how baby like the crew are...not him

He's doing the right thing to show support to Japan, help the economy and keep his promise. The crew can suck it up or quit and then complain where their next unpaid meal will come from.

If I was his crew members I would not go either. But Justin can go and please let him stay there in Japan. DO NOT LET THIS CANADIAN BACK INTO THE USA! So sick of him.
