Justin Bieber Booed At Canadian Football Game

Justin Bieber didn’t receive a hero’s welcome when he performed during Canada's Grey Cup football halftime show Sunday.
The crowd booed and heckled the Canadian-born singer as the host introduced him and throughout his performance of his hit singles “Boyfriend” and “Beauty and a Beat,” the Associated Press reported.
Unfazed, the pop star completed his routine and gave the Toronto crowd a warm send-off.
“Thank you so much, Canada,” he said. “I love you.”
Justin Bieber is admittedly not a usual choice for the Grey Cup halftime show, which has featured performers such as Nickelback and Lenny Kravitz.
“J-Biebs doesn't scream football, you know? Neither does Carly Rae Jepsen,” Ryan Prisque of Calgary, Alberta, told the AP.
Following Bieber, Jepsen performed a medely of her songs, including her hit single, “Call Me Maybe,” and latest single “The Kiss” to a mixed reaction.
Bieber received some more flack earlier last week for his style of dress while receiving a Diamond Jubilee Medal from Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Donning a pair of pinstriped overalls, unbuttoned on one shoulder with a white T-shirt and backward baseball cap earned the singer the title of White Trash Prince by social commentary website Gawker, among other insults.
The prime minster took to Twitter Sunday in Bieber’s defense.
“In fairness to [Bieber], I told him I would be wearing my overalls too,” Harper tweeted.
