Justin Bieber was caught on mic ranting at a cameraman after his performance on Thursday’s "Today" show because he was annoyed the cameras missed his dance moves. He felt they shot his face too much, and didn’t focus enough on his choreography. Watch the video below!
As Gossip Cop reported earlier, Bieber sang his new single, “What Do You Mean?” in Rockefeller Plaza as part of the 2015 Toyota Concert Series. But apparently the singer wasn’t happy that his performance was filmed mostly with close-ups, meaning that viewers at home didn’t get to see his choreographed dancing.
After he finished singing, Bieber approached the camera and looked directly into it, telling the camera operator, “Next time I won’t dance because the camera’s here the whole time. Might as well not dance.” The pop star was presumably unaware that the show hadn’t gone yet to commercial. He then walked away while still talking into his mic, saying, “What do I do this for if they’re just gonna,” before being cut off for a commercial break.
Based on Craig Ferguson, Bieber’s mini-tantrum was most likely just a minor, isolated incident that was unfortunately caught on camera. The former “Late Late Show” host tweeted earlier on Thursday, “I’m at @TODAYshow in NYC. @justinbieber is here. All the staff keep saying how cool, nice and polite he is. Take that preconceived ideas.”
