Tweenage girls everywhere were shown mercy today, as it was announced Justin Bieber was cancelling the remaining 15 dates of his Purpose world tour. TMZ originally said the tour was nixed for the perfectly mature reason that Justin was “just over it.” They later updated after Bieber’s peeps said it was cancelled due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Considering Justin once had the unforeseen circumstance of Germany taking his monkey and moving right along with life, this seems a little bit suspect. In case you can’t tell, I’m really upset by this monkey business!
His team said tickets will be refunded and didn’t offer much more in the way of an explanation, but I think I know why. The last leg of the Purpose tour was to include a stint abroad in Asia, touring through Japan, the Philipines, Indonesia, and certainly NOT China. Justin probably saw how fellow Canadian Celine Dion’s trip to Paris went and clammed up. Anybody would get performance anxiety. Nobody does an international trip like Slay-line, and nobody ever will!
