Justin Bieber

Dozens of Girls Injured

Oslo's mayor has launched an investigation into yesterday's near-catastrophic Justin Bieber concert in Norway -- after 49 teenage girls were injured in the fandemonium ... and 14 were taken by ambulance for emergency care.

No one was seriously injured, but Mayor Fabian Stang groused, "I have already called on the Emergency Planning Agency to examine the entire event from the planning stage to its implementation. We have to find out what went wrong and why it happened."

TMZ broke the story ... Oslo police nearly declared a state of emergency as tens of thousands of teenage Bieber fans descended on the city, mobbing the streets.

Mayor Stang said it got so bad ... he had to hide behind a tree at one point to avoid getting trampled.

Some people even tried to use inflatable rafts to reach the stage.

It was awful! I'm not a fan, but I was going to downtown to go shopping, and the bus took 1 hour (normally it takes 10 minutes) because the fans were blocking the road. There was about 20 000-50 000 people there... And there was actually 88 teens injured, not 49! But no one went to the hospital! And I had to listen to the awful music while waiting for the train back home. And all the screaming fans. My head was hurting so bad!

Just another example of how the big American marketing machinery have seduced yet a new generation of youngsters with an illusion.

But of course... When not owning all the big labels, and the biggest music TV/Radio stations, you've a hard time competing. Your nation with 310 mill citizens are flooding the rest of the world with basically ****TY template-made music, but our teens are so in the spell of MTV they haven't realized yet just HOW ****ty it is.

And regarding the chaos in Oslo... The American way of handling the situation would probably be to beat the **** out of the youngsters with batons, maze them thorougly and fine them severely for public disorder. And with your reputation for putting kids in jail, some probably would have do hard time.

Just sayin'...
