Justin Bieber asks fans to chill out

Has Bieber Fever gone too far?

Upon arriving in New Zealand, the 16-year-old pop sensation's hat was stolen, and his mother was knocked down by a crowd of about 500 that was waiting for him at the airport, according to MTV.com.

The teen ended up issuing an appeal to the masses via Twitter, requesting that they take their adoration down a notch.

“Finally got to New Zealand last night," Bieber said on Twitter. "The airport was crazy. Not happy that someone stole my hat and knocked down my mama. Come on people.”

He continued, “I want to be able to sign and take pics and meet my fans but if you are all pushing security won't let me. Let's keep it safe and have fun.”

This frenzy comes just two days after eight people were injured in Sydney, Australia, when a swarm of about 5,000 fans got out of hand.

Since the incident at the New Zealand airport, however, Bieber appears to be in better spirits. He’s gotten his hat back - "no hugs. no thanks u's. just glad they did the right thing. I dont condone thievery," he wrote on Twitter - and has called his stop down under “a great success.”

    Justin Bieber is NOT gay and if he was dont you think the whole world would know and not just think, assume, and just be plain dumb! Justin Bieber is so awesome and I love him so if you would like to tell me hes gay good luck with that!! The only way he is gay would be Happy but hes not happy either from what you people are sayin. come on give him a break! If you dont like him and you dont think he should be here then stop commenting and reading about him. Obviously he important enough to be reading about him and commenting about him!! Everyone that says negative things about him is probably just jealous. And trust me all you people that dislike him, he doesnt like you either!!

    Also one last thing; people who are saying he has a girl's voice and all, that's not nice at all. At least he gets up there and sings, has fun, and does his best. And he has a great voice, so people need to really stop the nasty comments. Like i said before if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    Seriously people, you need to stop judging justin, because know one really knows him. And everyone really needs to knock off the gay comments; it just seems like jealousy is coming over you guys these days. Whats there to hate about him? Hes a cool cute kid, and he has really good music. I'm not saying that everyone needs to like him, but if you don't it fine but just don't trash talk him. Everyone is unique in their own ways. So dont judge people. Thanks guys. And Justin Bieber, is a really great singer. (: Keep doing your thing ♥

    I have to say just chill out. I'm not a fan (by any measure) but if you like him then you need to calm down for you're sanity's sake, and if you don't you have better things to do. Honestly the only reason I'm posting this is because you all need to get it through your skull. Also, I'm tired of the stereotype that all teenage girls like Justin Bieber. I happen to be one and as mentioned before I have no affection for the guy. My whole point here anyway is no matter what side of this argument you're on, it's YOU'RE opinion. Stop forcing other people to try to see it like you. And also to the people who are criticizing small grammar mistakes: it happens. I'm sure we have all made them. Now when there are seventeen in your comment, it's something different, but every once in a while people make mistakes...

    Ok what I hate about "The BIEB" is when he opens his mouth he's trying to sound ghetto. I hate that. And he talks about girls as if he's a smooth operator. And the thing I hate most about "The BIEB" is that he said that he's not corny because he's not from DISNEY and that the HIPHOP community accepts him. Well, "THE BIEB" what you just said made you sooooo corny, trying hard and a bigtime poser.

    BUT, "THE BIEB" is just a kid; so I'll fogive him.

    The fans of "THE BIEB" should calm down. You girls will look back to this day 10 yrs from now and wouldn't even remember THE BIEB's name.

    What I'm trying to say is enjoy THE BIEB don't kill yourselves alright.

    To THE BIEB, you want these girls to stop being soooooooo crazy, shave your hair off so that they'll see your face clearly and realize that you're not that gorgeous.

    Peace out SHAWTY...LoL

    O forgot one last thing., if you don't have talent yourself then you have no place to criticize those better then YOU.

    You've got it all wrong, Miley Cyrus is still a big hit and making millions just by having her name printed. You've got it very wrong. It isn't a fad because if it was, nobody would be watching Hannah Montana and nobody would be going to her concerts. Please research your information before you start talking. Also, I don't know Mercedes but she doesn't sound dumb. She wrote in text form, if anyone here texts, than don't be idiots and put two and two together. One last thing for you Justin Bieber haters, if you don't like him don't read about him, and don't waste your pathetic lives looking for forums like these.

    Also, this is a BLOG and if Mercedes types without punctuation and like a 16 year old girl with acronyms and abbreviations , and you don't get any of it - it probably means you are a middle aged, self-righteous, closed-minded man/woman (who is also probably really boring and has no relevant idea of popular culture).

    Get over yourselves please! He is capitalizing on his fame regardless of how much you hate his music. He probably LOVES his life and enjoys the fame and the girls and the perks - something most of us won't ever have - and most of you are so self-absorbed to realize it.

    The only reason I know who he is – is because my 11 yr. old daughter likes him. I watched him for the first time on SNL and didn't get it. He's cute for his age but didn't see any real talent and his hair was driving me crazy. I wanted to reach into the TV and cut off his bangs with scissors. I give him a couple of years if that before he's forgotten. But I dont' see anything really wrong with him. Heck, I was madly in love with Donny Osmond when I was my daughters age.

    My question is – why are the adults so harsh on him. His music is FOR KIDS – not for you. Aren't you a little too old for him and his music? – creepy.

  58. Are you for Real?

    Wow, Eric W, that was a truly obnoxious video. My thought is that anyone who takes the time to put together footage (which is probably copyright protected by the way) from ABC news with your fake interview trying to expose someone as gay is pathetic. My thought is this amount of time must either mean you are a gay man who is refusing to come to terms with it yourself or you are a real jerk. Either way, come out of your closet and try to be a little nicer. Justin Bieber may not be someone who you want to respect but there really is no reason to be so disrespectful or mean. Put your energies and talents toward something productive and good and you might find you like it better. Wow. Terrifying to think our youth is obsessed with spending time making videos like this that are violating copyright infringement laws, basic human compassion, and gay rights all at the same time. I am truly embarrassed for you and your parents. Hope you grow up and do something respectable soon.

    I think everyone is getting a bit out of touch here. Why is everyone so surprised and blaming media for this. Does anyone remember the craze that The Beatles caused? We didn't even have the massive media then we have now and the crowds were crazed. Or how about the craze for Elvis? I don't think people should be knocking over his mom...how terrible but I am not suprised that he creates obsession in teenage and pre-teen girls. It's normal and certainly not the first time. Afterall, look how that one girl responded to Sanjaya on American Idol for goodness sake and he didn't even have an album yet. The biggest question here is why did security let his mom get knocked down?

    This child is a fool he hasnt even hit puberty yet and thats why hes famous not because hes a great singer it's because hes got the voice of a girl and supposdly cute i wouldn't know or anything but that girl mercedes or whatever her name is should really look into taking more elementary, middle school, and high school classes again for english because, that was the worst display of english i have ever seen. It comes from that texting and insant messaging they appreviate words so they dont have to text as much and when they appreviate words they will do it when they right or post a online message it is just sad because she doesnt even know how to correctly spell mad or but it was very sad and I think thats why America should reinforce learning how to spell our language correctly

    As a straight male from the US, I didnt know who this guy was either, but aparently his pretty popular among those speaking the Queen's English around the world. I learned about him last week while watching the Graham Norton show on BBC-A, and if Graham is talking about him... He will be on a South Park episode soon, mark my words.

    I dunno. I'm in my 40's and have a pretty open mind. I listened to "Baby" on YouTube, and - (OMG!!!) it stuck in my head. So I listened to it again. He's a good pop act. If he plays his cards right, he could be a major pop music player. I do recommend that he diversify, but geesh, people, what great thing did most of you do at 16? All I did was get kicked out of a Men At Work concert. 🙂

    What nasty people. If you don't like Justin Bieber, why are you reading about him? You are the same time of nasties that crucified Michael Jackson. Go listen to your crappy disgusting music and leave this good kid alone. He's excellent. I'm a 50 year old and I saw him on Saturday Night Live where performers sing live and he was FANTASTIC. I bought 2 tix for my 13 year old and it will be her first concert and I wish I was going with her! Most performers who sing live stink – Alicia Keys is a good example as well as The Black Eyed Peas – they stunk live on Idol the other night. Here's a kid who can sing live and has real talent. This goes back many years. I was in love with Donny Osmond and everyone called Donny gay, too. Mostly jealous teen boys!

    First, stop bullying Mercedes she is a child so stop with the grammar police crap. The story is about Justin not Mercedes. I am glad that Justin said something because people have been injured in the past and you barely hear from the entertainer, so at least he cares.

    Geez! How do you all know he's gay? I've never seen any indication of it! And Mercedes? Why would you even blog when you can't speak English? Obviously the teenagers like this new guy. My daughter loves him and we are going to his concert in July. If you can't say anything positive about him, then maybe you should stay off these blogs. This guy is making millions. Probably more than most of you and even I will ever make, so leave him alone. Someone must think he's got talent!!

    Justin is going to face a huge depression...Look at Corey Haim, no he wasn't a singer but, he was a huge idol who was lusted and turned to failure while living with his mother in a low income housing unit. Lindsey Lohan, or here's a good one...Miley cyrus, all of her "blankets,lamps,posters, anything with Hannah Montana is on huge discount being pretty much worthless...It is all a fad, a fad that will end like it always does...

    commenting to (a mom).....I agree with you 100%. Seems like the looks from past idols resemble eachother, the hair is obnoxious, to see him have to move it out of his face constantly is a little annoying lol, goes to show it is looks over comfort. His music is very childish and he reminds me of a little mouse trying to find his way in this world lol. Anyways, they hype all these young girls into wanting this "image" and wonder why it gets out of control, before he shows up they hype them up.

    Amanda – while you are telling Mercedes to use correct grammar, perhaps you should use a dictionary. A crooner is a singer. I doubt if Mercedes is one of Bieber's singers.

    Stop hating on the little guy. You do your thing Justin! Your parents should have done a better job preparing you for what could happen in the spot-light though. At least you're not a feak-a-zoid like Brittney or Michael was. Just keep doing your thing. Make that paper and keep it real. Ride it while it lasts because just as fast as you rise, so too can you fall and then we'll be seeing you in 10 years on celebrity fit club or some "Where are they now" special. Trust me.

    I have a bright, sensible 15-year-old stepdaughter who turns to mush over this guy. I must admit, I don't get it - he's a lightweight. But my generation had Donny Osmond (same doofy hairdo and big teeth) and we are no worse off. I just hope she outgrows it soon - the music is horrendous.

    Some you need to let up on the "gay" remarks. We are talking about a 16 year old here. There sure seems to be a lot of jealousy towards this young man for his success and fame. If you don't like it or him you don't have to trash it. There are plenty of other types of music for you to listen to. I see nothing wrong for him to ask people to back off. Fans do seem to go over board over this kind of stuff. if you don't have something productive or proper to post then just don't post.

    Wow Mercedes. It's obvious you're one of his crooners too, but like others said – please learn how to talk and use grammar correctly. Nobody takes you serious when you write or talk like that.

    I think Bieber is a good act and a cute kid.... but why are his fans so crazy?? It's like they've never seen a cute teenage boy before!
    And I will admit I like boybands – NSync was my favorite, and I still listen to and watch everything Justin Timberlake does, but I couldn't imagine gathering at the airport and knocking his mom down! Come on!

    Parents – lock your kids inside when Bieber's in town. Lol

    When your reps place your image into the eyes of technology along with plastering this idol image of you in every single teen mag, posters,blankets, that encourages an infatuation, therefore the rush of seeing you provokes their pent up anxiety. No, it is never ok to be hostile, no it is never ok to steal, and the invasion and lack of boundaries would make it more difficult to want to sign autographs though, maybe the adults in your life should slow down with the bieber sensation. We all know it is about the money on their end, along with exposing your talent. Though, this is a classic story of pre-teen pretty voice, to sqeeky to having to lip sync. Bieber fever will be over as soon as some other "hot" boy or boy band hits the stage, and the whole " girl wanna get an ice cream jive" will be a time of the past. It's too bad because, along with an ego comes a greater disapointment. Not to mention it seems as though someone could possibly be tampering with some drugs. I would guess pot is Biebers choice right now. Take a close look, he is obviously a little high in some interviews. Next he will have a cocaine habit or possibly pill habit and then ooops, all the adults wonder why there is another hollywood addict on a pth of destruction....So, go ahead bash me for my honesty, slam me for my spelling and dog me for my opinions. Come on, we all saw it with Usher....the same usher who mimicked michael jackson, he was/is a copycat that has nice teeth and a good eye for teleprompters.
