Tween star Justin Bieber urges fans to calm down

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Tween pop idol Justin Bieber appealed to his fans on Wednesday to calm down soon after his hat was stolen and his mother knocked over by a crowd of about 500 waiting to greet him as he arrived in New Zealand.

The frenzy came immediately after Australian police on Monday canceled a live performance in Sydney by the 16-year-old Canadian singer when a crowd of about 5,000 teenage girls got out of hand, with about eight youngsters injured from the crush and others fainting.

The hysteria surrounding Bieber, who is traveling to promote his debut album “My World 2.0,” has sparked comparisons to the reaction of young fans when The Beatles went on tour within the 1960s.

“Finally got to New Zealand last night,” Bieber told his 2 million-plus followers on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

“The airport was crazy. Not happy that an individual stole my hat and knocked down my mama. Come on folks… I desire to be able to sign and take pics and meet my fans but if you’re all pushing security won’t let me.”

Bieber shot to fame soon after being discovered on YouTube where his mother had posted videos of him singing at talent shows. He was signed up by rapper Usher’s record label Island Def Jams Music Group at the age of 14.

His album “My Planet 2.0″ hit the No. 1 spot about the Billboard charts inside the United States within a week of its release last month.     - Source
