The “secret concert” Justin Bieber held this Wednesday in Norway may have been for free, but the city of Oslo paid quite the price.
According to E! News, a Facebook post by Red Cross Norway said that 78 people required first aid during Bieber’s Oslo concert. In addition, many fans suffered from dehydration, and a good number of them were children.
A VGTV reporter in Oslo provided slightly different figures. According to E! News source Camilla Bjorn, Oslo police reported that 19 girls ended up hospitalized and 49 more concertgoers were injured.
“No state of emergency was ever declared,” Bjorn told E! News regarding earlier reports that Oslo authorities considered such a move to restore order. “However, there has been a ton of critique towards official police and Universal Music,” she added, “Because they were not prepared.”
The VGTV reporter said that Oslo police and Universal Music -the record label of Justin Bieber- “had not taken into consideration the chaos that could occur.”
Camilla Bjorn told E! News that officials in Oslo, Norway did not recognize Bieber. They also didn’t understand just how popular he was.
Now they know. In fact, the mayor of Oslo, Fabian Stang, got caught up in the chaos himself. Mayor Stang was reportedly forced to hide behind a tree lest he be trampled in the street by heedless fans of Justin Bieber.
After his narrow escape, Mayor Fabian Stang slammed concert organizers for losing control of the situation. Other Oslo officials called for an investigation.
In response, Universal Music issued a press release that apologized for the mess in Oslo. Bieber’s record label said it ”regrets strongly that some of those who were [at the] Justin [Bieber] concert had a bad experience.
“Fortunately,” said a Universal Music executive, “No one was seriously injured.” The exec added that Justin Bieber reportedly desired to “return to Norway and [perform] a new concert here.”
VGTV news editor Ola Stenberg told E! News that the ”chaotic scene” in Oslo caused by Justin Bieber fans was one ”we haven’t seen since stars like Michael Jackson visited Norway.”
The last thing Justin Bieber himself wanted was for his Beliebers to get hurt. “for the show to happen,” he tweeted Wednesday, “u must all listen to the police. we are all concerned for your safety,” Bieber said, ”and i want what is best for u. please listen,” he pleaded.
It remained to be seen if Bieber’s shows in Europe, Mexico, the US, and Canada- will cause as much ruckus..
“now off to another #secretshow,” Justin Bieber tweeted while on the way to Paris, France, “but this time a little more intimate and romantic.” Perhaps he misses girlfriend Selena Gomez, who remained in the US.

You might as well call it ‘Where in the World is Justin Bieber?’
E! News was informed by detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that they have already interviewed the paparazzo who was attacked by the ‘Boyfriend’ singer . The detective intend to talk to more witnesses (perhaps including Selena Gomez), with their grand goal an interview with Bieber himself.
Unfortunately for the detectives, they may have to schedule the interview over the phone, on Skype, or through similar channels. Justin Bieber had not just left the building, but also the country.
“ok,” Bieber had tweeted almost 20 hours ago. Posting that he was “going to board” his plane now, the 19-year-old singer and alleged paparazzo-beater was “OFF TO EUROPE!” for “PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts!”
After letting out a “lol,” Justin Bieber announced that he would be stopping in Norway. “OSLO first stop. See u soon….” He left the tweet hanging with an “and…”
According to E! News, his next post announced his arrival in Europe. “NORWAY!!! here with the team,” Bieber recently tweeted. “Loving the people! thank u. good food too,” he observed.
Shortly after his run-in with the still-unnamed paparazzo, Justin Bieber had promised fans that he was “gonna focus on the important stuff.” Not the alleged battery, apparently; he meant “The music.”
An itinerary appeared on Facebook this Tuesday. Bieber plans to tour Oslo, Paris, Milan, Verona, Madrid, London, Cologne, Berlin, Mexico City, NYC and Toronto. The singer expected to be back in the US on June 17, where he will hopefully be ready for this case.
“Im ready to work…who knows…might do a FREE SHOW along the way for the TV special. stay tuned,” he wrote.
While Justin Bieber sings for his fans, his unnamed accuser told investigators that he took a picture of Bieber and the latter’s paramour Selena Gomez in the parking lot of the Commons mall in Calabasas, California. The paparazzo alleged that the 19-year-old singer “physically battered” him. The paparazzo called the cops, but Bieber and Selena Gomez were long gone before deputies responded.
Selena Gomez was mum on about Justin Bieber and the alleged battery when she tweeted on Sunday. She just tweeted her thanks for her fans’ loyalty to her. “I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day/Weekend,” she tweeted yesterday. Gomez said she “had some [good] BBQ this weekend.”

The cops have officially handed the case of the alleged battery of Justin Bieber to the office of the District Attorney of Los Angeles County for possible criminal prosecution.
Gosip Center earlier reported that ‘Die In My Arms’ singer allegedly got into a scuffle with a shutterbug on his way out of the movie theaters with girlfriend Selena Gomez in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Now, according to TMZ, Justin Bieber could face criminal prosecution for alleged battery. TMZ reported that the Los Angeles Police Department have transferred the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office. The turnover was part of the usual process for high-profile cases.
Gossip Cop reported that a source in the D.A.’s office said that prosecutors have yet to make any legal moves. They are, however, already referring to the alleged battery case as a criminal prosecution.
Justin Bieber did not seem worried by the way his case went sour. “gonna focus on the important stuff,” the 19-year-old singer tweeted soon after the incident. “The music,” he elaborated.
The police had asked for a chat with Bieber about the alleged battery. The singer, however, was already headed to Norway. And it appeared that he would be staying across the pond for a little while to avoid criminal prosecution.
“ok,” Justin Bieber tweeted yesterday as he was “going to board” his flight. “OFF TO EUROPE!” Declaring “PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts” on Twitter (one wonders if Bieber’s “lol.” was aimed at cops and prosecutors instead of fans), he named ”OSLO” as his “first stop.”

Alleged battery suspect Justin Bieber surfaced at last- on Twitter, that is, to send his love to his loyal fans and to promise that he’s focusing on what’s important.
Gossip Cop reported that The Biebs tweeted about how he was “gonna focus on the important stuff. the music.” He then announced that his newest song “#DieInYourArms hits ITUNES in less than #24HOURS – #BELIEVE.”
To a faithful follower who wrote “Beliebers Protect Justin, until the end <3,” Justin Bieber retweeted. “and I will protect u too,” he promised his Beliebers. Bieber continued by saying that he knows he and his fans “got each other’s backs. always.”
According to Gossip Cop, after tweeting his thanks to his supporters, Bieber made a declaration. “My fans have always been there,” he said of his Beliebers, “from day 1. they are there for me thru everything.” According to the 19-year-old-singer, “they lift me up. so,” he concluded as fact, “i’m there for them. always.”
Justin Bieber exhorted his Beliebers to remember that “We came up from the bottom TOGETHER. every step we were doubted.” Admitting that even he “doubted…” Bieber praised his fans for being “always there. #IlovemyBeliebers.”
“So we work hard,” he urged Beliebers around the world. “we grind it out. nothing is stopping us,” Bieber claimed, for “we #BELIEVE ”
Gossip Cop stated that more than 22 million people follow Justin Bieber on Twitter.
Justin Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez ran into a paparazzo this Sunday. Bieber allegedly attacked the photographer, who complained of torso pains and filed a police report against him.

Days before his supposed Sunday scuffle in Calabasas, California, Justin Bieber had been taking tips from boxing legend Mike Tyson, which may explain why that paparazzo went down and stayed down during the alleged fight.
According to Gossip Cop, The Biebs dropped by Iron Mike’s Las Vegas, Nevada studio during the Billboard Music Awards. Mike Tyson proceeded to coach the 19-year-old singer through an impromptu training session.
Pleased with his protege, Mike Tyson later posted a video of Justin Bieber going after the punching bag like a professional.
(This probably spells bad news for Ukrainian kissing reporter Vitalii Sediu. After getting slapped by Smith, Sediuk planned to kiss Bieber’s girlfriend Selena Gomez. He also declared that he wasn’t afraid of Bieber, who was “not competition.”)
Justin Bieber has shown that he has always been interested in boxing. Gossip Cop earlier reported that the singing sensation escorted Floyd Mayweather Jr. to the ring during the latter’s bout with Miguel Cotto. Bieber even got to carry Mayweather’s championship belt. After Mayweather won, the boxer posed with Bieber, Lil Wayne, and 50 Cent in the ring.
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were heading home after a date when Bieber allegedly got into a brawl with an overzealous paparazzo who reportedly blocked Bieber’s car. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office has since named Bieber a suspect in the alleged battery.

Just who started the fight that left a paparazzo beaten up and Justin Bieber a suspect for alleged battery? The Hollywood Gossip reported that the legitimacy of the celebrity gossip photographer’s allegations were already being challenged by eyewitnesses.
In a police report, the paparazzo claimed that he attempted to take a photo of Justin Bieber around noon Monday outside The Commons mall in Calabasas, California. Bieber was accompanying Selena Gomez at the time.
The 19-year-old singer was reportedly angered by the paparazzo. The ensuing physical confrontation left the photographer on the ground while Bieber stomped off with the worried Selena Gomez in tow. The paparazzo complained about upper torso pain and was rushed to the hospital.
But according to eyewitnesses who approached TMZ, the paparazzo provoked a fight with Justin Bieber by blocking Bieber’s car. The ‘Boyfriend’ singer asked the paparazzo to move out of the way. When the latter refused, Bieber attempted to get him to move, which resulted in the lopsided fight.
Afterwards, according to TMZ sources, an attorney approached the paparazzo. The lawyer supposedly suggested that the paparazzo call an ambulance and press charges in order to get money from Bieber.
Neither Justin Bieber or his representatives have issued statements on the matter. The office of the Los Angeles County Sheriff are hoping to speak to Bieber and Selena Gomez within the week.

A paparazzo accused Justin Bieber to be the suspect in an alleged battery during Sunday in Calabasas, California.
According to Gossip Cop, the ‘Boyfriend’ singer and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, had apparently gone to see a movie at a California mall. The two stars were heading back to their car when they encountered the usual paparazzi.
Details about the alleged battery remain vague so far. Supposedly, the shutterbug reportedly kept Justin Bieber from entering his car. An altrcation followed where Bieber knocked down the paparazzo.
Gossip Cop reported that the fallen paparazzo called for 911. Instead of helping the injured man, his fellow photographers snapped shots of Selena Gomez trying to calm down her angry boyfriend. Bieber was seen to be putting a baseball cap and a shoe back on after the fight.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had already left the premises when police and an ambulance arrived. The victim of the alleged battery complained of upper torso pain as the ambulance took him to a local hospital.
Following his release, the unnamed photographer filed a police report that named Justin Bieber as the suspect. The police are treating the matter as a misdemeanor battery.
Selena Gomez took to Facebook for her thoughts on the incident. “THANKS YOU SO MUCH to my fans,” Gomez wrote, “For always protecting me and being there for me.”
Adding that “I can’t thank you guys enough,” Gomez apologized for her abrupt departure from the scene. “I’m sorry I had to rush out. Love you guys,” her entry bid her fans.
The representative of Justin Bieber had yet to comment on the alleged battery.

Watch out, Selena Gomez, Angelina Jolie, and Cheryl Cole! The Ukrainian kissing reporter who tried to smooch Will Smith is now after you! Someone warn Justin Bieber and Brad Pitt!
After apologizing for attempting to get jiggy with Will Smith during the Moscow premiere of ‘Men in Black 3′ last week, Vitalii Sediuk apparently hasn’t learned his lesson. Or perhaps he has, considering his new list of kissing targets are all female.
Or not, considering the infamous kissing reporter intends to smooch the barely-legal-and-still-taken Selena Gomez, and the equally-taken, happily-engaged Angelina Jolie.
In an interview on TMZ Live this Thursday, Sediuk claimed that the 19-year-old Gomez is his new holy grail. ”I love her,” Vitalii Sediuk confessed. “She is my future project. Selena,” he greeted, “Hi.”
He also declared that the ‘Boyfriend’ singer does not intimidate him. ”I’m not afraid of Justin Bieber,” the Ukrainian kissing reporter said of the insanely popular boyfriend of Selena Gomez. “He’s not competition.”
Other lovely ladies eyed by Sediuk for a wet smooth are divorced singer Cheryl Cole and recently-engaged Angelina Jolie. The reporter did not comment how Jolie’s fiance and ‘Mrs. and Mrs. Smith’ co-star Brad Pitt ranked as a threat compared to Justin Bieber.
Selena Gomez has not commented on the big wet kiss promised by Vitalii Sediuk. After all, the Ukrainian kissing reporter isn’t as earthshaking as the huge earthquake Gomez survived while shooting in Bulgaria.

‘Falling Down’ singer Selena Gomez escaped real injury when a massive earthquake hit Bulgaria.
According to Perez Hilton, the 5.6 earthquake shook the eastern European country around 3 a.m. It was followed by a 4.9 magnitude aftershock about an hour and a half later. Both quakes took place less than 30 miles from the spot Gomez was filming in Bulgaria.
Reports from Bulgaria have been slow, so Selena Gomez personally got on Twitter to assure her fans that she was all right.
“Thank you for all of your concerns!!” Gomez tweeted from Bulgaria. “Earthquake was scary,” she said, “But thankfully everyone is ok.”
Perhaps because she was overcome with relief, she made an understandable error in geography. “Praying for Italy,” she concluded her tweet.
According to Perez Hilton, Gomez’s boyfriend Justin Bieber has yet to remark about the earthquake or Gomez’s safety in Bulgaria.
A recent tweet by Justin Bieber seemed to imply that he and Selena Gomez have broken up. Neither party has remarked on that rumor.

The British hacker who hacked into the Facebook page of Selena Gomez last year will be spending a year behind bars.
According to Gossip Cop, Gareth Crosskey was arrested and charged in February this year for the January 2011 hacking incident. Crosskey posed as Gomez’s stepfather Brian Teefey in order to gain access to Gomez’s Facebook account.
Pretending to be the ‘Hit The Lights’ singer, Crosskey allegedly manipulated the page for his own self-aggrandizement. He allegedly wrote “Justin Bieber sucks!” The Facebook hacker also allegedly posted a video to YouTube that showed him editing the profile of Selena Gomez.
According to prosecutors, Gareth Crosskey also revealed private Facebook correspondences between Gomez and fellow singer Demi Lovato. The Facebook hacker further threatened to publicize messages between Gomez and boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Pleading guilty to offenses under the UK’s Computer Misuse Act, Facebook hacker Gareth Crosskey is now in prison. According to British authorities, his punishment “should act as a deterrent to any individuals thinking of participating in this type of criminal activity.”
Selena Gomez has not yet commented on the matter.
