Pop star Justin Bieber fainted backstage during a concert in London after complaining of shortness of breath.
The “Boyfriend” singer was taken to the hospital following his concert at London’s O2 Arena. Bieber, 19, was reportedly experiencing breathing issues on stage.
A rep for the pop star told omg! that the singer “fainted and took a twenty minute reprieve and was given oxygen,” and headed to the doctor after the show.
The Biebs himself later addressed his Beliebers via Twitter.
“getting better,” he wrote. “thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love.”
About an hour after that tweet, Bieber’s condition had obviously improved even more. He posted a shirtless photo of himself recovering on Instagram. “Gettin better listening to Janice Joplin,” he captioned it.
According to our sister site omg! U.K., Bieber told the crowd, “I’m not usually this out of breath” before rushing off stage.
His manager, Scooter Braun, and friend Jaden Smith then came on stage to tell the audience that Bieber would be back shortly. Although the singer was urged by doctors not to continue performing, he finished the entire concert.
