Time out! Justin Bieber scolded some of his fans during a concert overseas on Tuesday, October 18, when their screaming got a bit out of hand.
The “Company” singer, 22, was in the middle of a speech when he told the audience to pipe down at his show in Birmingham, England.
“Can you guys do me a favor? Can you guys just relax for about two seconds?” he said on stage, via Entertainment Tonight. “I get it, I get it, but I’m like two feet away from you. And I can hear you. I appreciate all the love, it’s amazing. But can you show it in a different way? Screaming is just so obnoxious.”

Some attendees simply stopped cheering, but others began to boo. “I get it, it’s been in our blood and it’s ingrained — you go to a concert and you scream and stuff. But if you could just scream after the song, enjoy the song, and then take a chill pill for a second and listen to me speak,” Bieber continued. “I don’t feel like I’m being heard sometimes, and it gets a little frustrating. When I’m speaking, can you guys not scream at the top of your lungs?”
The star has been blunt with Beliebers before. Back in May, he posted on Instagram that he was done taking photos with fans. “It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity,” he wrote at the time. “I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture.”
