Justin Bieber hit with water bottle during performance
Justin Bieber has clearly made Beliebers out of many, many people, but perhaps it wasn't always that way.
When Bieber was performing at a concert in Sacramento in December, 2009, an errant water bottle came sailing through the air, hitting the 16-year-old star in the head, as shown in a video that was recently posted online. (Whoever threw that has a serious arm.)
It’s unclear why the concert attendee felt the need to pelt the kid with a plastic container of water – did he look thirsty? – especially since Bieber, at the time, was expressing how his love for the fans gathered.
But, to his credit, Biebs shook off the assault with a simple, “Ow, that didn’t feel good,” adding, “I don’t know why she just threw that at me, but I love you guys.”
But even better than the laugh you'll get from the randomness that is the clip is the fact that someone had the foresight to put it on a loop.

Yall iS Stupidd For commeted ugly assees
I think he is so cute
I'd tap that.
its ok if you dont like him, but hes still a 16 year old kid an d a PERSON, he needs respect.
cant believe people waste their money in an artist they dont even like
it wasnt a water bottle it was sour patch kids wrapped in a towel
Almost all of yall are haters & need a life & stop hateing , if yall really dont like him then then keep it to ur self because at the end of the day you still pay attention to him . Because you know you like him so stop hating and get over your self
It should have been a Randy Johnson fastball !!!!!!!!
some kids are stupid and arrogant what did he do to diserve that nothing he say after every concert how much he loves us his fans so why did he or she throw that i dont know all i know is i love justin bieber now and forever

im so sorry that happened to him! thats so mean and justin if ur looking for a gf or a cool friend u can find me soon on twitter when i get 1. i love u so much. i appricate wat u do.
yo people justin butthead sucks... that was worth it
Wow in the video his hair wasn't even messed up after a water bottle hit him in the head. That takes a lot of time, and hair product, to make it stay like that.
Who would think he deserves it? What has he done that’s so bad? He’s a 16 year old kid. I can’t believe anyone would even think that’s funny. Only the immature mind would. Anyone who would get joy out of watching that needs to get a life and grow up.
Oh my god, is the water bottle okay?!?!?!
LOL...This kid is a here today, gone tomorrow. As soon as his voice changes, he'll be done; however, he is milking the industry for all he can, while he can. I'm not mad at him for that.

I nearly had an accident when I heard this on the radio, I was laughing so hard.
your stupid i wish you realy did have an accident
Next time use a brick
Mr. Justin Bieber is living in a SUBURB OF ATLANTA GEORGIA, and that area of North America was never part of Canada.
Fact is the US MILITARY (i.e. US Army & US Marines) is so desperate for ENLISTED MEMBERS, they do not worry about citizenship, as long it is not one of about two dozen countries or so, on a specific list; Canada is not on that list.
Supposedly, Mr. Justin Bieber is in the process of, or has become a NATURALIZED UNITED STATES citizen.
Mr. Justin Bieber at age 17, Mr. Justin Bieber should become an ENLISTED MEMBER OF THE UNITED STATES MARINES.
The USMC will ensure that he has a nice haircut.
The USMC will ensure that he can speak like a man.
The USMC will ensure that he can interact in a normal manor with peers of his own age.
The USMC will ensure that he has outstanding weapons training.
The USMC will ensure that he has fun.
The USMC will ensure that he paid, fed, clothed, and housed.
The USMC will reward him with worldwide travel opportunities!
Seriously, an EIGHT MONTH OLD incident is "news"?
In what way?
Why did it have to be a plastic bottle when it should have been a glass one? I really hope that this kids spotlight ends soon.... Just looking at him makes me wish someone would drag him into a back alley an take the steel toed boots to him!
ya'll are just madd because a white boy is getting all the love...your jealous...remember whites built this country.
The race card has been overused in situations that should not include it. Please use your brain before you post such utter garbage, please.
Too bad they didn't throw a frag!
It wasn't news then and it isn't news now.
the day he turns 18, I'll make him scream like the girl he truly is
Dumb geeky kid!
I would have used one frozen.. and several of them.. Cant stand this jerk already...
Who really gives a freash pile of dog squeeze on what happens to this flash in the pan.
Best news of the day, sweet!
Although he is a talented primadona brat he does not deserve to be hit inthe face.
This video needs to be on Tosh.0's "video breakdown" lol
LMAO – nice hat you little poser
What – only ONE water bottle was thrown at him?
Stop talking about my baby's daddy like that!
who gives at sh!t?? seriously?
What gets me is that everyone reads this, then comments on how it isn't news. Stop dissing the kid for making more money than you can imagine.
Wow, CNN reporting is getting more amazing by the day!
What I was referring to above, at age 17, Mr. Justin Bieber should become an ENLISTED MEMBER OF THE UNITED STATES MARINES.
The USMC will ensure that he has a nice haircut.
The USMC will ensure that he can speak like a man.
The USMC will ensure that he paid, fed, clothed, and housed.
The USMC will reward him with worldwide travel opportunities!
I guess you missed the fact that he's Canadian.
So something happens 8 months ago and you are just getting to it now? The big question is WHY? Is the JB team so desperate for headline time that they're digging stuff up just to keep him in the news? The sad thing is – it worked on me: the embarrassing thing is – I'm taking time to reply. So now I ask myself – WHY?
all i wanna know is, why would summ moron spend money of this little freak's concert, sit through the show knowing they hate it just as much as i do..JUST to throw a water bottle at him???? damn people, if that was mee that bottle would have been full of urine and blended baby feces, and would have been followed by oh idk a couple of bee hives, rotton tomatoes, used tampons, GLASS bottles, and maybe just maybe be id hire megatron to justt end the poor little kids life right there on the stage for the world to see. hed still be famous, probly more for the fact he wood be the only one murdered publically by a frikkken robot on stage, bu at least we wouldent have to hear his crappy music and see his face all the time, hed be old news in a couple days when sum new lil kid can sing twinkle twinkle little star widdout defecating his pants. =D
She's a little whimp....I saw John Cougar (a long time ago) get hit in the head with a Jack Daniels bottle, it cut him pretty good. He came back out and played 'Hurt So Good" with a hard hat on....pretty funny. It didn't even make the news.
Who is Justin Bieber? I've never heard of her.
Maybe the thrower thought the kid was thirsty. 😛
In other news, Alan Alda suffered from a bad case of constipation in 2005.
Follow j_biebers_colon on Twitter and learn all about Just Bieber's bowel movement.
too bad it didn't break his nose
Too bad it wasn't a water cooler. End this annoying little fart's reign.
My God...Fox news is so far to the right that it comes back around from the left, and CNN posts "NEWS" like this...that happened last year......I guess I'll just have to get what is news in the world from my barber...
Looks like this kid got hit with a gay branch as well! I can't wait until this kid is a "has-been". It's sad that his style is considered music nowadays. Damn you corporate America!
I think it's pathetic that people can have hatred for a kid that they haven't even met, it's actually laughable.
Maybe one day his balls will drop.Sounds like a chip munk with another chip munks good in his bum.
Wow... way to go CNN, this I definitely some top notch reporting. What's next? Lady GaGa chokes on a Turkey sandwich? Or Taylor swift passes her road test?
I would read about GorGor choking on a turkey sandwich just to see if she gave it the finger
i think who ever threw should be ashame of theirselves and he does not suck he the most awsome kid singer i know
dee bubbles –
Go to school much? I counted SEVEN spelling or grammatical errors in your comment, and that's just with a quick glance.
I personally think he's not that great, but tween girls will buy anything.
Who is the guy??????
why just one? Someone could throw a big glass bottle.
Maybe the bottle made his hair look normal, whats up with that wind tunnel hair due. I mean really he looks like a joke, he's not setting any fashion trend. I just makes me want to run a Flowbee through that wispy mop.
Did a 14 year old write this article? Extreme overuse of commas, grammatical errors and more.
"especially since Bieber, at the time, was expressing how his love for the fans gathered."
So, the fans gathered? Or the love gathered?
Also, not much of a story.
I think the reason this got posted so long after it took place, is because the video was JUST put on the internet. (as the story states)
Why is this news????????? Why is this on CNN's front page!!!!!
Finally. Its about time someone did that.
See if he is still 'famous' when his voice changes... yuck. If this is music, then I'm not listening!
CNN does this **** all the time. I've seen them re-post old news stories that they posted a year ago, like the "facebook status leads to home robbery" article they posted last week. It was the same exact story and the same victims they posted a year ago. I recommend going to BBC news. I'm done with CNN.
Q: Why did they throw the water bottle?
A: They wouldn't allow concertgoers to bring bricks.
This is the best news I've heard all day, even if it really isn't news. Whoever nailed that kid should be given a medal.
This should have been reported moments AFTER this incident occurred.
But still, this is funny. lol
it wasnt a waterbottle, it was a tshirt with sourpatchkids in it... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjJJPNVNZgU that video explains it.
Keep those water bottles coming please.. LOLZ
Dec 09!? MEH! I want a current pummeling!!
this kid has no talent! the person that threw the bottle needs to aim better.
Yeah... the WHOMEVER is just wrong.
This happened in '09 and your just reporting it.... also just wrong.
And... yes plese keep those water bottles coming.
Keep those water bottles coming please..
In other news, Tiger Woods took a dump. That's right, Tiger had a bowel movement in 2009 and CNN was there to cover it live. We'll have more on this story later.
Is praying to God that my daughter doesn't become a Justin fan. I think I would throw a water bottle at myself, if I found out that she had so little taste.
I can't stand this kids girly hair style. He always swings his head around, so that his hair goes in his face. Someone needs to throw some sissors on stage. Or hold him down.Or better yet, have a crazy fan run up there and do it. They could just claim they wanted a lock of his hair.
The only panties that get thrown on the stage are from 10yr old girls. He doesn't mind though, he'll still wear them.
CNN – this is trash. Who cares about this? Perhaps teenage girls. How many teenage girls read your web site?
The CNN web site in general has sadly deteriorated over the years, going from real news to celebrity fluff stuff, and this article is the most pathetic example yet. I think it's time to switch to another home page.
Saw Justin on the teen awards....im not sure you could call that singing, what a bunch of sour notes. But thats no reason to mess up his pretty face.
The headline should be "Justin Bieber hit by a water bottle in 2009." In better news you can track Justin Bieber's every bowel movement. Just follow: j_biebers_colon
And this is from December 2009? I thought you couldn't spell news without "new".
As an aside, Justin Bieber is gay.
Poor baby! Who cares?
Whoever threw that should have instead thrown a brush at him. The poor child does a terrible job combing his hair, which is in need of a trim.
This is breaking news? people please. Of everyrthing going on in our country, and this is what they feel is top priority. A year to late don't you think? this kid needs to get more bottles thrown at him every time he so calls performs.
How is this news?
So CNN had to go to last year to find a story that wasn't even a story then. What a waste of news space.
News? No. Funny? Oh yeah!
justin beiber is so lame and annoying.. he will be a no body soon .. hes sounds suck and he is n o fit role model for any kid.. glad he got a water bottle chucked at him..lol..
lame that he is in the news just like lindsey lohan no one cares
What is it about this kid that makes me want to hate him?
Oh yeah. He's gay.
The truth is that I've never once listened to his music. I really have no valid reason to hate this guy. I mean, he's probably not gay in any literal sense. Even if he were, that wouldn't be a reason for me to hate him. I guess it's just natrual to hate people richer than I am.
Justin really got it bad!
hahaha all that was needed was the headline. it was like comic relief. haha
So, what DO you call a Canadian wigg3r?
Someone should have thrown a grenade at her.
Since Mr. Justin Bieber is now living in the United States, (and is in the process of or has become a United States citizen), and that considering a very large percentage of his income is obtained from entertainment performances within the United States.
Mr. Justin Bieber upon reaching the age of 17 should be grade an all-expense paid tour for a year or two with the United States Marines in Afghanistan. Maybe then, he will see what real life is about, considering he would then with other 17-22 year olds.
In a perfect and just world, yes, he would do this. In our less-than-perfect-and-just world, he won't be going anywhere near the Middle East without a towering stack of cash (taxpayer cash, of course). I seriously doubt anyone from the military is going to find his act even remotely entertaining anyways...
And we care WHY??? His parents are gonna end up taking all his money and blowing it anyway.....
I have been aware that CNN has become gradually less and less "serious" in it's approach to being a provider of "real" news, but seriously? This was in the list of headline on the homepage. Seriously? Amazing. An acquaintance of mine and exeptional human being in my community was murdered while doing medical relief work in Afghanistan and I come to CNN to see what coverage there is, to see "Justin Bieber hit with Water Bottle" among the headlines. foolishness. come on cnn.
Shows what happens when CNN dumped the Associated Press service and started using their own.
How do you dump the AP?
Yes, this is news your under the ENTERTAINMENT section you twits.
Actually it is on the front page headline section of "Latest News"
I guess the water bottle's replaced the tomato and it's readily available artillery..
Good ol' Sacramento. I went to a Bush concert here right when they were plummeting out of the lime light (about 10 years ago). They SUCKED and the lead singer got nailed with a water bottle and went wimpering off the stage. Some guy comes out yelling "That's bloody Gavin Rosedale you just hit with a water bottle, he doesn't need to take this. He won't come back on stage!". Nobody cared and everyone started leaving. It was awesome. The lesson to singers is this; don't come to Sacramento and suck. We like music and don't want to waste our money. If you suck you get pummeled, that's how we roll.
Wow, he looks like a girl!!
What no tomatoes...!
I think America needs to spend billions...no...TRILLIONS on finding the perpetrator and bring him/her to justice. Please, America, instead of praying for the people of Darfur or the Gulf Coast, pray for Beiber. He needs us after the horror of "the Bottle"
The way this kid acted in the Quad Cities a few weeks ago, he should get more than a water bottle – a boot in the but* or a severe paddling over an adult's knee would be a great wake-me-up to reality for this errant child.
Lady gaga is more manly than this pantywaist.
I love the hat. Its 3 sizes too large and he wears it like a bucket. Buckethead!!
Top Story Tonight!! the little gay kid Justin Bieber has been hit by a water bottle and sent to the hospital for immediate surgery. In other news the President has been assassinated and World War 3 has started.
Hes such a wuss
That was totally stupid. Is that as clever as you can get?
THIS stupid event that happened LAST YEAR is on CNN's front page? Absolutely ridiculous. Half of your "headlines" belong in the "Offbeats" of respectable news companies.
And even if there are people over 8-15 year old who like Justin Bieber, chances are they would not be reading the news anyway.
And in other news, man has landed on the moon...
Justin Bieber took a dump in March 2005
Hey CNN, how much did you get paid to place this non-information?
Breaking News: The sun is hot
...and Bieber is most definitely NOT.
Do a show in Cleveland sometime, perhaps you'll have some batteries thrown at you instead of a stupid water bottle.
Actually, they will throw a box full of LeBron jerseys.
THats funny...He was up there performing thinking tat every1 really cared and boom...Smacked with a water bottle...lol!!!!
This just in: Two years ago Justin Bieber farted. Details to follow.
OMG OMG OMG!!! I need the details right now! Was it a squeaker or a full on horn blower? Did it smell like roses????
It wasn't 2 years ago, it was just earlier this year. Loud enough to start an earthquake in Haiti.
Who cares, it happened too long ago. He is cute and can sing o.k. but probably won't be around long
when his ego gets the better of him.
To bad it wasn't a pop bottle..
Yeah, really! Imagine the endorsements deals he could have got after that! LOL
Good god! This is news? Does anyone really care?
Cannot believe this is on the front page of CNN. >=o/ lame.
it's called a blog....and besides, you clicked on it and read it...sounds like *you're* the lame one...
@duh: yep, absolutely right. they got me, too.
(Simpson's bully kid) HA Ha!
Welcome to rock 'n roll kid......... you never would have survived a Black Flag show if your worried about just water bottles......
Dude this kid is so far from rock and roll he can't even see it
well mmmm Justin is a wannabe Jesse McCartney as well but he won't make it, he'll probably quit over something stupid
You have GOT to be kidding. If CNN executives actually want to know why they are struggling for readers, they should study how this story to to their site. December 2009 !? This actually took up an entry on the CNN main web page?!
HA HA....HA Ha !!................DUH.....!!!! HA HA !!
Like, OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
Alex Winter? oh shoot... how is Keanu dude? you too still hang out since Bill and Ted?
this is news?
What part of "entertainment blog" is hard for you to understand...?
On a side note, I'm sure many would consider this good news....
would be better if he was hit by a train instead
Agreed. Preferably one of those high speed bullet trains loaded down with tons of lead.
*POOF* Was anyone one seen Justin? Yeah he's right over there and there and I think that's a piece of him over there.
I hope the water bottle didn't get hurt though.
no it wouldn`t dont hate appreciate that u have a teen that can sing good
please dee... remove your reproductive organs so you wont accidentally pollute the gene pool
You are being very mean about this. And u probably don't no that he is the popularist teenager on the planet. so no need to say that about justin.
*you, *know, *most popular.
It's because of mindless people like yourself that he is the "popularist". In fact you shouldn't reproduce either
Bingo, right on the noggin. Tom Jones gets underwear. This kid gets No Deposit.
Problem is, Tom Jones gets Depends thrown at him now. I think he'd prefer the water bottle. 🙂
this happened in Dec 2009 and you're bringing this up now??!!
I agree! How is this news?
And how is this funny?
He has got to fix the hairdo, he is starting to look like sarah palin with her beehive, a real oldie.
Also, "Whomever threw that has a serious arm" ?!?!?!
Whomever wrote that has some serious grammar problems.
Dude your right this is old news and for the record, Justin Bieber sucks
Absolutely agree! Who in the world cares this is almost a year ago!
News, no. Olds, yep.
As if this isn't bad enough, he's writing his memoir for a 3d film?? Are you kidding me! His 15 minutes is up, isn't it?? Why do we keep reading about him and fueling this crap?
Actions speak louder than words...
Actually this article was made to show how lame you all are for know that it happened in December of 2009. But the only people that is news to is you.
Love how many of you are complaining "how is this news?" and yet you all are so eager to click on the article, read it, and comment. And to Mark: Before you comment on the writer's poor grammar, make sure you understand where the error is: in this case, it should be "whoever" not "whomever." Just makes you look like an id-git.
Okay, he is a child. Does anyone get that?! Just because he is a pop star does not take away the fact that he is a minor and if I was his parent, someone would certainly get it.
Must be a story in his upcoming "Memoirs". The "old timer" has a lot to tell, you know!! "On a cold December day, long, long ago............" Sorry...I'm laughing my rear off, while I'm typing this!!
Pity it was not a brick........poor "girl" would have been out for the count....
OK folks it's time to really think about how much glory this little twirp is getting. Is he for real? He will never come close to any real performer, as he still has to crawl out of his diapers. I'm surprised CNN had space to waste with this sort of stuff. It's a new low.
seriously.................................... if this is news, i feel like me brushing my teeth this morning should make front page on the chicago tribune tomorrow morning.
How is this news? It happened ages ago? Do you guys work for his PR agency now? And that is not music folks! Sorry to break it to you! Buy some Beatles albums for your kids, and not this trash.
Serves him right!
It wasnt even a water bottle, it was a thing of his favorite candy wrapped in a shirt that said "i love you JB"
