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.

Very, very stupid business move. With all the negative publicity this kid has been getting lately, the last thing he should do is disappoint & anger the fans he still has.

Even if he had to play to a less than sold out venue, he should have showed up & done his show. And if they announced they would sell tickets at the door up to showtime, they probably could have filled a lot more seats.

Either this kid is messing with drugs & alcohol & is in no condition to work OR he threw a hissy fit & refused to do the show.

Justin better get his act together ASAP or he'll be wondering where all his little fans have gone & why older people have no interest in what he's selling.

bad music, a spoiled boy, marihuana, aspiring and bad rappers as good friends, drinks, and a ghetto lifestyle is a good recipe for disaster.

Although I don't like his music I always stick up for the KID. This time though I can't. He's going downhill quick.

He's on the downward curve.


I think he's even starting to realize it.


That's probably why he went after that photog in London. He knew back then the show in Portugal was getting cancelled and who knows, maybe there are others as well that might get the axe.


If this starts happening, it's only a matter of time the same stuff starts happening in America.


And he knows it. His management knows it. His entourage knows it. All he can do about it is throw the usual hissy fit.


Hope he saved his money.

I find it hard to believe he had anything to do with this, it seems like this kid is being controlled like a puppet...google what he does for sick kids, he does a lot for them and this is something I can't see him having any control over..keep in mind people that kids like Justin and when Brittney was young they are looked at as money makers and they are completely controlled which in turn causes the behavior we seen Brittney do and now Justin recently, They self destruct, and life for them isn't as fun as it looks to be...I feel so bad for them, honestly they are being used beyond belief. The music industry and hollywood is the worst thing to let your children get into. stay away from that..the only thing they want is Money they do not care about any of these celebrities.

Better stop lending out your big expensive toys to those wannabe POS rappers too.... you aren't going to have a constant cash flow for too much longer.

That's what happens when your fans grow up and you don't.

HA HA! How many times have I said over the past few months "remember Bobby Sherman, Donny Osmond, The Bay City Rollers, The DeFranco family. David Cassidy, Rick Springfield etc etc etc" Now you are well on your way of being a "has been" or as I see it, a "never was". Finish your 10th grade education, go to college, do something with your life instead of pretending to be a bad-ass rap guy with a car you will soon wish you never bought.

Woah wait a minute here!!!! A singer on Justin's level? If that level means SH&T than ok I get it, he is nothing more than a talentless, pot smoking, loser. Maybe he should look at doing mall tours HA! HA!
