Justin Bieber Is Going Mad At An E! Reporter Who Accused Him Of Lip Syncing
The performance was his first in two years.
Justin Bieber is really unhappy with an E! reporter who accused him of lip syncing during his Coachella appearance.
Justin surprised fans on stage during Ariana Grande’s set when he performed his song ‘Sorry’, undeniably to a backing track.
In fairness to Justin, the Coachella performance was his first in two whole years. and according to Ariana it was completely unplanned. However, that didn’t stop E! reporter Morgan Stewart from absolutely ripping into him on her show Nightly Pop.
Here’s the clip.
In response to the video, Justin wrote a series of tweets attacking Morgan, at one stage saying she’s the type of person who makes kids want to kill themselves. Yikes.
He started by tweeting her directly, writing, “@Morgan_Stewart just saw a video of you ripping me to shreds saying I was lip-syncing. They played the song and i just sang overtop of it.. regardless why spend your time tearing people down. It’s People like you that are bullies at school that are making kids suicidal.”
He continued with this: “@Morgan_Stewart imagine if you spent even half the time you spend laughing at other peoples expense actually building people up and encouraging people how much positivity you could bring. What hurts about this is the fact that you have a platform to make a difference.”
In the next tweet, he clarified what actually happened re: lip syncing. “And rather than being positive you belittle people. Think about how awesome it felt for me to be on that stage after being away for so long the excitement and joy it gave me doing the thing i love the most, i sang to to backtrack like most cameos do this is a normal thing.”
in regards to the people saying he’s lip syncing, he is! it was a spur of the moment random thing he wanted to do for fun followed by a heart felt thank you from him ? AND an announcement of a new album on the way #coachella #coachella2019 #justinbieber #arianagrande pic.twitter.com/PT3i2ZL5UK

While this was all going on, Justin’s pal Ariana decided to weigh in on the situation to defend his lip syncing.
Responding to one of Justin’s tweets, Ari wrote: ”we also decided to do this ten minutes before my set started. we had 0 soundcheck, 0 rehearsal. u were singing with the back tracking like most cameos do. people are bored. people don’t know how it feels to be under such scrutiny. the world was happy to have u on stage again.
“your fans, friends & the world is thrilled to have you back. everyone was so happy to see u smile like that. no one will ever understand how it feels to be u, but it’s not their job to. take care. make music. u are loved.”
We think everyone should cut Justin some slack, okay?
Have your say
