Justin Bieber banned from performing in Beijing for ‘bad behaviour’

Pop singer, Justin Bieber has been banned from performing in the Chinese capital for “bad behavior,” a statement by Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture.

“His series of misbehaviors while living abroad and during his performances in China has caused public resentment,” said the statement dated July 18.

“To regulate the domestic entertainment market and purify its environment, we find it inappropriate to bring in performers with bad behaviors.”

The 23-year-old Canadian pop singer is expected to perform in Japan, India, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia for his world tour.

According to CNN, a Chinese ticketing website that is selling tickets for two Bieber concerts in Shanghai was not aware of the Beijing government’s decision.

A source at the Shanghai cultural authority said it was unlikely that Shanghai would allow Bieber to perform there, given the decision Beijing has already made.

Bieber's offensive behaviour during his last Chinese tour created national outrage in the country.

Along with being carried up the Great Wall of China by his bodyguards (an image of which resulted in a bombardment of international mockery), Bieber was also filmed skateboarding through the streets of Beijing while being pursued by his entourage.

China had in the past blacklisted artistes like Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Bon Jovi, Maroon 5, Linkin Park and Bjork.
