Justin Bieber was 70 minutes late for his show at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne on Dec. 2. The Canadian crooner arrived at 9:40 PM on a Monday and finished his show at 11:00 PM on a school night. 95% of his audience are school kids and parents were disappointed of his ignorant and disrespectful behavior. Many say the Canadian singer's post-fame meltdown seems to be happening anytime soon.

Bieber's Believe tour in 2013 has made more headlines of what really happened off stage from the teen singer using restaurant buckets for his personal urinal, partying with strippers, disrespecting country flags to being photographed while on his rebellious graffiti habit.
Child stars seem to be struggling with the transition to become a serious artist as Miley Cyrus wrecks balls and Bieber wrecks walls. Inside Rod Laver Arena though, Justin remained charming and "Beliebers" have not lost the faith. It may be past their bedtime but it didn't stop the girls from their bone-drilling screams.
Justin Bieber performed Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake pop classics, taking off their crotch grabs and dance moves. The audience got to hear some audibly live vocals when he started singing acoustic ballads. Bieber's Motown tribute "Die in Your Arms" showed his talent and proved that the kid indeed has a great voice.
One Direction was also in Australia recently and it's hard not to compare the pop rivals. One Direction's high tech production beats Bieber's pyrotechnics that looked like homemade fireworks. One Direction also connects and engages with their fans by reading out their Tweets during the show while Justin says rehearsed inspirational clichés.
What could be causing Bieber's challenging behavior these days? Reports say he was late because he was flirting with Big Brother Australia's Tahan Lew-Fatt. Could it be he's seeking attention from his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, just like what Miley Cyrus does in desperate hopes to hear from her ex-boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth?
Justin Bieber was extra emotional in his new single, "Change Me," making it appear like he wants Selena Gomez to stop him from going down the wrong path. Even if they've been split for a long time, every song on his album seems like it's about his first love. Listen to Justin Bieber's "Change Me" song below and see if it is still about Selena.
