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.

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.

It sounds like his crew is a real bunch of Idiots probably think you get aids from shaking hands like most of the idiots posting on this thread.

What his Do***entary "Never Say Never". The kid is talented and knows what he wants. I doubt he wants to go because of the paycheck.

If it was a serious risk don't you think they would be evacuating those cities?

His crew needs to get educated and TMZ needs to report on the actual health risk...go call a specialist Harvey.

Something about the word raditaton makes 'Mericans even more stupid and irrational. Background radiation levels in Tokyo are currently less than what they are in most European capitals, and half of what Hong Kong gets. All major countries have lifted travel restrictions to the major centres of the country (the north is still nogo tho) - Osaka isn't even part of the discussion; never was. While not a massive country geography wise, Japan is pretty big - the only area effected by radiation in a major way is the exclusion zone.
So, Biebs is right in wanting to play in Japan. As much as he sucks, the country would welcome him. The flight over would expose him to far more radiation than he'd ever get while in Tokyo. Perhaps his crew should stop flying altogether then.

Arrogant, rich little piece of ****. He's already too good for his crew and showing no respect for them. What the hell? He can't miss two shows out of respect for his team? Ego maniac piece of crap.

His head is WAY TOO BIG way too soon. I never liked him, and now I now why (besides the fact I can't stand his music either). He's got the attitude he's too good for anyone and they should all kiss his ass.

He should fire his crew and while he is in the area he needs to stop by North Korea.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

PLEASE go. As a matter of fact, I just read an article stating that Japan is looking for volunteers to clean a ravaged area near, oh nevermind the name of the town. I mean, people have evacuated, but it's only because there's no running water, & not because of the glowing fish with three heads. Just ignore that. Propoganda. In any event, justin, that hard-hit area can sure use your help, and soon. So please head over there, like, RIGHT NOW.

Stupid crew. You ain't gonna perform in the middle of ground zero. Besides, you'd have to be there for weeks to feel any ill effects of the radiation. Not just a dang couple of days. If you scared quit using your microwaves. wussies.

You the Canadian for today Biebs. The Japanese won't forget that.

Justin Bieber is planning to play in Osaka and Tokyo, correct? People are exposed to more radiation levels by flying on an airplane than what they will experience by coming to Japan. The radiation levels in Osaka are extremely low, and have remained low for quite some time. Osaka is located in the South of Japan, being 562 km away from the power plant. Yes, the earthquake and tsunami devastation is horrifying, but he will be nowhere near there. The radiation power plant is also located 240 km away from the capital city Tokyo. Belieb me, I live here in Japan.
