Bieber clashes with cameraman

Justin Bieber was today involved in an extraordinary clash with a cameraman.

Pop star Justin Bieber was today involved in an extraordinary clash with a cameraman outside his Park Lane hotel.

In footage first brought to you by 5 News, the 19-year-old pushed his way into a waiting car – a move which provoked a strong verbal response - then emerged, a few moments later, to confront the cameraman again.

He took to Twitter to respond to the footage filmed by a 5 News camera, writing: “Ahhhhh! Rough morning.

"Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me...

“Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u...well I'm human. Rough week.

“Not gonna let them get the best of me again. Gonna get focused on this show tonight. Adrenaline is high now. Gonna put it on the stage.”

It has been an eventful few days for the singer, who was criticised for appearing late at a concert on Monday.

He was then treated by doctors after suffering breathing problems during last night’s concert at the O2 arena.

    Justin is in the public eye, though young, he should have known a lot better.

    Interesting that the subject has produced so many moderated comments! Like any modern day over-hyped phenomena, young Bieber is reliant on the public perception of him and his image in order to maintain his income and lifestyle, so to act in such a manner without considering the negative publicity it will engender is so utterly naive. He and his 'management' will always welcome publicity, but need to minimise the 'bad' or it will eat him up. Young Beiber is showing way too many signs of being all too 'up himself' lately, and it will be to his cost if he or his management fail to keep his image and the perception of him under control because really that's what it's all about nowadays. Once a negative perception wins the day, it's a swift fall from an elevated position. He kopped a deserved earful and it wasn't pleasant nor was it designed to be, but even though he caused the problem in the first place, sympathy went out of the window once he utterly over-reacted to it. The heavies didn't help the situation either, but it's publicity he relies on, and he must remain aware of that, 24 hours of every day in every thing he does. No it isn't easy, but it comes with the privileged position he enjoys. If you want to see the unbleeped version, go watch this video elsewhere, it's easy enough to find.

    He courts the attention of the media when it suits him, he gets paid extremely well for being a celebrity pawn, how can he complain when it isn't all going his way. If he isn't happy with the situation, maybe he should get a normal 5 - 9 job, with a normnal salary, happy days for all.

    Way I see it he's currently on a huge worldwide tour. Huge pressure. A schedule of touring like that is too much for a 19 year old solo singer. Looks like he'll be needing his 2 days off tomorrow.

    He knows that part of his job is to deal with people wanting to talk to him or get pictures with him. He's old enough to ignore someone if they're saying bad comments towards him and there was no reason for that backlash. He began it with the initial push of the photographer. Surely Justin should be used to people now liking him or saying horrible things about him. He is not having a good week at all! The fame has got to him a bit too much I think..

    @19 years old and so famous to let someone "unimportant " to get the better of him ...seems to be a poor excuse. The guy hadn't had a good start. Better take a break before more people are involved. The footage showed Justin shoving the photographer away. not the other way around. The bodyguards shouting out the way...it's a public place!

    People keep calling him a kid. He's not a kid. He's 19. An adult. He's burning out and needs a break. This is a tale as old as time... too much too young. Unless he takes some SERIOUS downtime I'd be amazed if he's still going at 21. The media is one thing but also fans, also give him some room, stop trying to own a piece of him, demanding he follows you on twitter and addresses your ever tweet as you are part of the problem... like it or not. The manis is created and everyone wants a piece of him for whatever reason and THIS is what happens - Burn outs, breakdowns and backlash.

    People really need to back off from Justin. The media always go after the biggest and well, it's tragic that they are this desperate to get people hating.
