Teen pop star Justin Bieber abandoned the stage during a
much-anticipated show in Istanbul last night, refusing to return unless fans
ceased throwing toys at him, daily Hürriyet reported.
Thousands of teenagers flocked to İTÜ Stadium last night
in one of the year's most-awaited concerts a day after Bieber's sensational
entrance to the country, during which he attempted to skip passport control and
caused mayhem at Sabiha Gökçen Airport, where his plane had landed.
Fans were throwing toys and scarves at the beloved singer
as a show of appreciation, but the teen magnet decided he wanted no more of it,
and abandoned the stage.
He stayed backstage and refused to come out until an
announcement was made in Turkish, informing fans that the show would not go on
until the toys stopped coming in.
Bieber then continued on with his show.
