Girl faints at Justin Bieber private show
BY ROGER FRIEDMAN
Justin Bieber put on a private show last night at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.
The 16 year old passing fad — or Leif Garret 2010 — is an inexplicable teen sensation. Consequently, one girl–exactly one–fainted before the show started. She is okay, however.
As for Bieber, fresh from his performance on “Saturday Night Live,” he worked the crowd of youngsters into a screaming frenzy. When you’re screaming, you can’t hear anything. It’s just as well. Bieber is no Sinatra, let alone a Timberlake.
My eyewitness reports: “He covers other people’s songs, and he can’t really sing.”
The latter more or less confirms my own impression of the Beeb from the taping of “We Are the World 2″ last February. When it was his turn to do his solo in the booth, the voice cracked. Those of us watching on the closed circuit were more than surprised. He is also height challenged for a 16 year old.
Anyway, after the show Justin twittered to his fans, all 1.8 million of them. (Yes, this is the new teen phenom, the male Britney.) He wrote, with exclamation: “Oprah is looking for my Biggest fans!” (The capital B is his.)
