Justin Bieber carried up China’s Great Wall ... because he can
Hear ye, Hear ye! Make way for Justin Bieber, his royal majesty!
Ugh. Commence eye-rolling.
The 19-year-old pop singer is doing himself no redemptive favors with his slew of bratty behavior during his embattled Believe tour. His latest antic comes via a series of Twitter photos posted Monday on a fan account for the tour. And in one of the photos he is seen being carried up the Great Wall of China by two bodyguards ... because, apparently, he can’t be bothered to use his own legs.
Or because he’s Justin Bieber.
The “Beauty and the Beat” singer was there during the Chinese leg of his tour and paid a visit to the famous fortification in a pretty regal manner. It’s unclear why the Biebs was being toted -- too many steep steps, a nagging injury or pure ego -- who knows.
What we do know is that he and his caravan made it to the top, and Bieber was photographed standing with his own two feet on the ground. If only that was always the case ...
Earlier on the trip, video footage and photos of him surfaced as he skateboarded through the streets of Beijing while being chased by his bodyguards. Other photos show him on a bicycle wearing a police hat for no apparent reason.
As they say, on the shoulders of giants...
But in this case, all he’s discovering is a slightly elevated vista of the Chinese countryside and a whole lot of well-deserved hate.
