It's not always so swaggy for teen pop sensation Justin Bieber. This week, he had two setbacks to deal with.
The first is something most of us can relate to -- having a camera or a computer stolen.
"sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy," Bieber tweeted Wednesday evening, later adding, "yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other's property"
Outcries of sympathy and support flooded through Twitter for the "As Long as You Love Me" singer, currently on his "Believe" tour. Bieber was performing on the stage of the Tacoma Dome in Washington when the theft occurred on Tuesday night.
"i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect," he wrote.
"Personal footage," you say? Bieber didn't go into detail about what that meant, but we're sure the imaginations of millions of Beliebers are going wild.
Meanwhile, late Tuesday night, the LAPD was called to Bieber's home after a phone call reported a person waving a gun on the property. But it turns out the report was a fake and was, in fact, the latest incident in the trend of "swatting" pranks against celebrities.
TMZ reports that the LAPD sent the whole gang over to Bieber's house -- choppers included -- and performed a sweep of the house after Bieber's security let them in, as well as checking two more homes nearby. They found nothing. And Bieber wasn't even home at the time.
Other celebrities have been the target of swatting, including Miley Cyrus and Ashton Kutcher, as well as other residents of the luxury neighbourhood. Some of Bieber's neighbours include Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian.
We have to admit, as great as it is to travel the world and delight millions of fans, it has to be difficult sometimes to be an international superstar (especially when people start animating your moments of illness).
But it looks like Bieber's heading to a comforting place -- back home to Canada! He's starting a Canadian leg of his tour on Friday in Calgary, then hitting Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg.
"about to see my fans ... my beliebers ... and it's gonna BE ALRIGHT. #showtime #CANADA," he tweeted.
