Justin Bieber booed by angry football fans

Bieber booed by football fans

The Toronto crowd booed once the 18-year-old pop star’s face popped through to the JumboTron screen. They booed whenever a host spoke his name. Plus they booed as that he took the stage and for the duration of his medley of the chart-topper Boyfriend and the disco-inflected Beauty and a Beat.

“Thank you so much Canada, ” Bieber said. “I love you. ”

Earlier in the day in the week, Bieber was offered a Diamond Jubilee Medal by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and caused a scene by wearing overalls, unbuttoned using one shoulder, over a white T-shirt, with a backwards baseball cap.

There is adequate uproar that Harper even weighed in on Twitter.

“In fairness to (Bieber), ” Harper tweeted, “I told him I’d be wearing my overalls too. ”

The Canadian Football League might have been hoping to court Bieber’s army of tween followers on Sunday. But recent Grey Cup half-time performers have skewed toward the comparatively heavy likes of Nickelback and Lenny Kravitz.

“J-Biebs doesn’t scream football, you understand? Neither does Carly Rae Jepsen, ” said Calgary’s Ryan Prisque, 22.

The 27-year-old Jepsen also received a mixed reaction initially on Sunday but won the crowd over throughout a keen medley of her latest single, This Kiss, and her infectious hit Call Me Maybe.
