One festival I’ve always wanted to go to and have added to my bucket list is Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. While I’m sure you’ve all heard about Madonna stealing the show by sucking face with Drake and seen the footage, however the highlight for me is hearing the news about Justin Bieber being dragged out of the festival in a headlock by a security guard.
It’s being reported that allegedly The Biebs attempted to get int the VIP backstage area to watch Drake’s performance but was told the area was at capacity. Well the star got all diva mode, with he and his entourage insisting that they be allowed entry and well, not only were they turned around but the star was allegedly put in a chokehold and kicked out of the festival all together. Let me hear a big “LOL!”
Oh poor Bieber didn’t get his way and is now considering a legal action. The below embedded video shows Justin being led out the backstage area by security, presumably after he was put in the chokehold.
“Justin Bieber was kicked out of Coachella Sunday night, but not before he was placed in a chokehold … TMZ has learned.
Bieber and his entourage walked to the artist’s entrance where Drake was performing, when they were stopped by security and told the area was at capacity and they couldn’t come in. Bieber and his crew showed security they had the proper wristbands to gain entry. Eyewitnesses tell TMZ, Bieber argued with security, saying there was no way he could stand in a big crowd because he’d get bombarded by fans. Security wasn’t having it and told him to leave. We’re told Bieber persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend to see him perform. Bieber didn’t stand down and security was pissed. At that point a Coachella staffer came up to Bieber and said she would escort him inside the artist’s area. She grabbed Bieber by the arm and began walking him and his security team inside, when Coachella security came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold. We’re told Bieber’s team got into it with security and the singer was then ordered to leave the festival. Sources close to Bieber say he voluntarily left, and they’re considering taking legal action against the security guards.”
Is it bad that I find this story so funny. I guess this just shows that no matter how famous you are, even a celebrity of Beiber’s magnitude is susceptible to getting the occasional security smack down from time to time.
Couldn’t have happened to a better person if you ask me!
