Boos and worse for pop star Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is blaming food poisoning for forcing him to quit the stage for the second time during his South American tour. This time he drew boos from a huge crowd in Buenos Aires’s River Plate stadium who paid up to $320 to see their idol, who started an hour and a half late, perform Sunday night. ‘‘I’m not feeling too good, I think I’m out of energy,’’ he told the crowd after nearly an hour, saying he was sorry and blowing a kiss before walking off the stage. Bieber posted a photo on Twitter showing himself receiving intravenous fluids, and his manager, Scooter Braun, came to his defense Monday saying Bieber’s food poisoning was so severe that he spent eight hours on an IV drip before the show, and doctors advised canceling. The 19-year-old star also walked off the stage in Brazil, ending a concert early after someone threw a plastic bottle at him; a Brazilian woman posted pictures of him crashed in bed after a night at a strip club, and Brazilian police tried unsuccessfully to question him about defacing a public building with graffiti, a crime that carries a year’s prison sentence. In Argentina, girls caused such a ruckus outside the Faena hotel in Buenos Aires that Bieber had to leave. He then flew to Cordoba for a Friday night concert and still had enough energy to take his entourage to a Buenos Aires nightclub early Saturday morning. Bieber’s next concert is set for Tuesday night in Santiago, Chile.
