That Justin Bieber, eh? He really knows how to talk to his fans - you know, the people who made him the rich and internationally famous pop star that he is.

Some people would say that the 21-year-old needs a smack in the chops and/or a reality check, but as we're not ones to condone violence we'll stick to writing about what a odious, overprivileged little toad he is.

Bieber's track record with how he speaks to/treats his fans isn't good, but his recent comments on the UK leg of his tour - which hits Ireland in a few weeks - haven't done much to improve it.

NME report that at his London gig last week, he said 'Be quiet and listen when I'm talking', while video footage of his Birmingham gig on Monday night shows him saying: "Guys, can you do me a favour? Can you guys just relax for like two seconds? I’m like two feet away from you, I can hear you.”

He added: “I appreciate it, I appreciate all the love, it’s amazing, but can you show it in a different way? Screaming is just so obnoxious.”

Not as obnoxious as expecting paying customers at a pop concert to bow to your every whim, Biebs...
