Justin Bieber surprised fans at a Taylor Swift concert by hopping on stage during her show at the Staples center. The next day, thousands of teen girls had lost their voices and experienced their first Bieber induced anxiety attack.
About halfway through the Taylor Swift show, Taylor announces, "Who wants to see my friend Justin?" to the nearly 15,000 person audience. Then Bieber struts on stage in what looked like silver denim (?) and grabbed his crotch like some kind of infant lothario and busts out his hit song, "Baby." Taylor lent her vocals to the chorus and while they dueted.
Taylor previously sang acoustic covers of Bieber's songs at her shows in Canada, as she does homages to artists who are from the area where she's performing that night.
You can say that Bieber joined Swift onstage, but really he crashed the show. Who goes to another artists show, brings four dancers who have a completely choreographed routine prepared, and then bust out on your own hit song? Justin Bieber apparently. Like wedding crashers, Bieber is a concert crasher.
Taylor tweeted immediately after the show, "You think you've heard LOUD screaming in your life. Then @justinbieber comes out and does a surprise song during your show. Woah. Unreal."
Bieber tweeted back "@taylorswift13 we should do that more often. :) great show! #muchlove."
Justin's manager Scooter Braun said the surprise show was being kept hush hush for a while, "Had to keep it a secret all day. But @justinbieber just came out and sang BABY with @taylorswift13 at STAPLES. EPIC ROAR! #greatmoment," he tweeted.
Is there a hashtag for I'm-not-13-therefore-I-really-don't-care-just-tell-me-when-Jay-Z-drops-by-a-Taylor-Swift-concert?
This isn't the first time Bieber has surprised fans by appearing onstage. Last month, Bieber joined Selena Gomez onstage in Orange County, California and sang a cover of Justin Timberlake's classic "Cry Me and River." You know, there's gotta be a reality TV show in here somewhere. Like Punk'd it could be called "Bieber'd" where Bieber shows up at your concert, surprises fans and then shouts "You just got Bieber'd!"
Bieber has previously said he was taking some time off, but apparently he missed performing (or the screaming fans) and had to get back on a stage. "I'm taking a month off" Bieber previously said and then he announced "You just got Bieber'd! SIKE" I'm kidding about the second part.
Taylor knows Justin because she is friends with his girlfriend Selena Gomez. Selena claims that Taylor helps her with her relationship with Justin, "What I love about Taylor is that she believes in the whole love story - Prince Charming, soul mates. Because of her, I haven't lost faith," Gomez says of her friend. "Every problem I ever have is healable by Taylor Swift." Awww.
