Justin Bieber injures hip

Justin Bieber's mini-tour of Europe has hit a stumbling block after the teen sensation injured his hip.

The Baby hitmaker touched down in Norway this week (begs28May12) to kick off a promotional trek for his upcoming album Believe, and to perform a string of secret shows as he travels the continent.

However, Bieber woke up in agony on Thursday (31May12) and took to his Twitter.com page to tell fans about his setback.

In a series of posts, he writes, "Dear world... (I'm) being told I have to tweet to tell you what's up. I'm grumpy. Just woke up. Being honest... I pulled something in my hip yesterday."

But Bieber vowed to press ahead with his next stop in Paris, France, admitting time with his guitarist and musical director Dan Kanter had cheered him up.

He tweeted, "Dan Kanter's smiling face has made me feel better. It is so nice to spend time with Dan Kanter... PARIS Here we Come."
