Pop star played renditions of 'Sorry' and The Beatles' 'Let It Be'
Justin Bieber made an appearance at a bar in Toronto at the weekend, treating punters to an impromptu piano-led performance.
Bieber – who hails from the nearby city of London, Ontari – went to the Fifth Pubhouse alone on Friday night (November 4), where he watched the Toronto Raptor basketball game and ordered a few drinks, before taking to the pub’s piano to play a rendition of his song ‘Sorry’, as well as a cover of The Beatles‘ ‘Let It Be’. Watch footage and see photos below.
TMZ reports that the pub paid for Bieber’s bar tab as payment for his performance.
Bieber has made headlines for his random public antics in recent weeks. Last month, he tried to disguise himself in Amsterdam with a fake goatee and wig. He also surprised a group of London school children by joining in with their game of football and was spotted in a Glasgow chip shop eating deep-fried haggis.
Meanwhile, Bieber has also spoken out to explain why he controversially stormed off stage during a recent gig in Manchester.
Having previously told his “obnoxious” London crowd to “be quiet and listen when I’m talking” and ordering a previous Manchester audience to “shut up” during his ballads, Bieber told his fans on Sunday: “I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love, I appreciate the kind things. But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you.”
“I don’t think it’s necessary when I’m trying to say something and you guys are screaming,” he added.
In a note since deleted from his Twitter account this weekend, Bieber has explained his controversial behaviour to his fans.
“People tend to want to shut you down,” he wrote, reports Yahoo. “What I mean by that is … people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen. But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.”
He continued: “There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. … There’s times when I get upset … times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be frustrated. But I’m always going to be myself on this stage.”
Denying that he was ‘angry’ at fans, Bieber added: “All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to just say, ‘Hey, I’m not going to try to force anything.'”
