The fans of Justin Bieber are known as Beliebers. With the time drawing closer, the Beliebers started purchasing more and more merchandise of their star singer. Given to the numerous interesting demands that the young singing sensation made before stepping his foot into the nation created mixed response throughout the nation including the celebrities. Let us explore more about the purpose tour of Justin Bieber and how the celebrities reacted to it.
The Bizarre Demands and AND THE REACTIONS OF THE CELEBRITIES
The entire nation went frenzy when the list of demands of the Canadian singer got leaked online. It ranged from a private jet to travel across India to a special Jacuzzi, from a Rolls-Royce for personal transport to a chopper to fly to the stadium on the performance day… well, the list goes on! His demands were termed crazy and ridiculous by most, even by a large portion of Beliebers. But, then our very own favorite singer from India, Sonu Nigam stood up in his defense.
Sonu Nigam said that Bieber has been subjected to mean trolls all over the world and yet he is gaining more and more fans. The young star is already a billionaire.
