Justin Bieber Private Show: Girl Faints, Singer Is So So

Share

Justin Bieber put on a private show last night at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.

The 16 year old passing fad — or Leif Garret 2010 — is an inexplicable teen sensation. Consequently, one girl–exactly one–fainted before the show started. She is okay, however.

As for Bieber, fresh from his performance on “Saturday Night Live,” he worked the crowd of youngsters into a screaming frenzy. When you’re screaming, you can’t hear anything. It’s just as well. Bieber is no Sinatra, let alone a Timberlake.

My eyewitness reports: “He covers other people’s songs, and he can’t really sing.”

The latter more or less confirms my own impression of the Beeb from the taping of “We Are the World 2″ last February. When it was his turn to do his solo in the booth, the voice cracked. Those of us watching on the closed circuit were more than surprised. He is also height challenged for a 16 year old.

Anyway, after the show Justin twittered to his fans, all 1.8 million of them. (Yes, this is the new teen phenom, the male Britney.) He wrote, with exclamation: “Oprah is looking for my Biggest fans!” (The capital B is his.)

Indeed, over on Oprah.com, the website says that “Justin Bieber is the hottest teen star of our time!” She is absolutely looking for his biggest fans, including those who’ve built shrines to him.

Also, after his private show, he alerted fans: “taking a moment 2 listen to MY WORLD 2.0 – I really am proud of this album. 1st time this week I’ve been able to chill and just listen 2 it.”

That’s so great. And he still had time to do homework, I’m sure.
