Justin Bieber chastises cameraman during live TV performance

Justin Bieber clashed with a cameraman on live TV on Thursday (10Sep15) as he complained about having a lack of space to show off his dance moves during an outdoor concert in New York City.

The pop superstar braved a little rain to take the stage on breakfast show Today, but at the end of his opening performance of new single What Do You Mean?, he was seen confronting one cameraman for shooting too close to his face.


Chastising the guy on TV, he said, "Next time I won't dance because the camera's here the whole time. Might as well not dance. What do I do this for if they're just gonna...", before producers cut to a commercial.


The issue appeared to have been resolved for Bieber's subsequent performances of his songs Where Are U Now, Boyfriend and Baby, which aired throughout the rest of the show.


Many of the audience members had camped out in Rockefeller Plaza overnight in the wet weather to ensure they were front and center for Bieber's performance, and the singer, who debuted a new platinum blond hairstyle on Today, showed his appreciation by sending free pizzas to feed the eager fans.
