It had to happen sooner or later.

Having put out numerous missives into the world relating to his fans - no photos, being rude to people, etc. - the tables are beginning to turn and the Canadian star's fans are BEGINNING TO TURN ON HIM.

Well, not quite - but he was almost bottled at his concert in Sweden after refusing to play a particular song.

It seems that fans really, really wanted to hear his latest hit 'Despacito', but since Bieber doesn't know the words to the Spanish language hit (as we recently learned), he refused to play it.

"I can't do 'Despacito.' I don't even know it," he protests, before he leans to the side and narrowly avoids a bottle hitting his head.

Instead of flouncing off stage in a tantrum, however, he simply says 'Don't throw things at me, please'. Maybe he is growing up, after all.
