Justin Bieber

Cancels Concert

Because of Empty Seats

Justin Bieber cancelled his Portugal concert Tuesday -- not because he's sick, not because he's melting down -- because ticket sales were "soft" and it felt like the right thing to do. Just tell that to the fans who are getting stood up.

Sources connected to Justin have confirmed ... it was a "business decision" that triggered the cancellation. Our sources say ticket sales were still "good ... more than 60%" ... just not good enough.

It's pretty common for lesser artists to bail when sales are bad, but unusual for singers on Justin's level.

He is on the path to becoming a nobody.

I ran right in here when I read the headline ... hoping to find out he died from his injury. I'm a bit disappointed to hear that he's still alive, but I am happy to hear that perhaps his 15 minutes are FINALLY up!!

I knew that little prick was trying to save face after not giving a reason to being so late and cutting the show back,next day he's sooo sick but i have to go on for the fans(because of the backfire he took).Then not one week later doesn't even show for his fans that did pay in a very poor place

It being a calculated, mathematical business decision is even worse an idea for cancelling the show than beeBz being erratic. It shows what Tools those people are how image driven they really are. Bieber has become a brand name product with a short expiration date.

Here is a guy that is recorded throwing-up on stage, and insists (we are told) on finishing the concert. In London, from what we are told, is sick behind stage, continues with the concert, then taken to hospital right after...and hospitalized.

Now, a cancelled concert because it is not sold-out? Where is the guy that would not leave the stage until the concert was over? This might be a huge eye-opener into what is really going on in the, "Bieber Camp".

Makes me wonder how artists like Justin Timberlake made it through the "coming of age" stage without such controversy and public displays of douchebag-ness. Perhaps solid parenting? Parents who only allowed solid people around their son? (This Scooter guy sounds horrid.) I still believe Justin B's attitude and down fall are directly rooted with his parents. Greed and money did it. I hope they feel regret from all the exploitation they did of him at such an early age. Once again JB, not a fan of your music but I wish you luck on the other side of this.

you're finally getting what you deserve you punk! it's about time people start waking up from idolizing to people like you. You never deserved that fame in the first place.. and with that kind of attitude of yours and all those people you've pissed throughout the years...well, we all have seen it coming. We still have the last laugh.

That's terrible of him! He has enough money so he shouldn't have canceled on the fans that did in fact buy tickets. That's just selfish of him! I don't think it's because he's fading as my little girl still loves him! it's just that these artist charge too much for tickets especially in bad economic times! Bad move JB!
