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.

Maybe if he pulled up his pants, he would have sold more tickets.

Stick a fork in Bieber he is done! like most teen idols he is washed up at 19. His future? it will be alot like Leif Garrett and Corey Feldman, drugs, alcohol and trouble with the police. At least Bieber has the companionship of Lil Twist, it's not much but it's something for the Biebs

Doesn't have to fade....fading due to his bad behavior....he started out this sweet, humble singer that always tried to be a good example to kids...Now he's a very poor example to kids and arragant as hell.....stop buying crazy toys, donate some of that wealth to kids in need instead and go back to the nice kid you used to be

Teen idols fade when the teen idol starts looking like a real man who could be dangerous in bed. So based on that....Beiber's got another 10 years of shelf life.
