Things haven't been so hot for Justin Bieber in recent days as he prepares for the release of his upcoming album Believe on June 15th. Earlier in the week, Bieber attacked a paparazzo and is facing an investigation for criminal battery – seriously. Now to add injury to insult, Bieber suffered a concussion during his latest concert in France. Via Rolling Stone:
Justin Bieber suffered a concussion during his May 31st show in Paris, reports TMZ. Bieber told TMZ that in between songs, he inadvertently ran into a wall of glass backstage. Though he was “disoriented” afterwards, he still closed out his set. After the show, Bieber “passed out cold” for about 15 seconds as he walked to his dressing room. Doctors confirm Bieber suffered a concussion but that he faces no serious harm going forward.
At least the injury won't last long for Bieber, but have there been enough studies done on concussions and pop stars? How soon should one return to those hot stages with all those blinding/flashing lights that can be so disorienting? It's a hot-button issue and it needs to be dealt with, for Bieber's sake.
Hopefully Bieber will have better luck during his US in late 2012 and into 2013. Tickets for those dates go on sale today and tomorrow, and you better believe they will sell like hot cakes.
