This is what happened tonight at O2 Arena

Justin Bieber was two hours late for his first gig in London. The star was over two hours late for his own concert.

The popstar is said to have been booed by the crowd as he showed up for the concert at around 10.30pm, despite being billed to play from 8.30pm.

Justin Bieber performing his ‘Believe Tour’.

“Justin Bieber is currently TWO hours late (and counting) for his own concert. Young fans are leaving as it’s so late,” The Mirror reporter James Robertson wrote on Twitter.

He later added: “Bieber update: He’s decided to show up. Is the arena curfew 11pm? Crowd were booing and last tube is around midnight.”

Meanwhile, Joanne Dorken of MTV News tweeted that there were “literally kids in tears on the tube after parents made them leave to get last trains”, calling it “heartbreaking stuff”.

The Sun‘s Jane Moore added: “Bieber came on TWO hours late at o2 tonight. What insult to young fans, falling asleep/crying and having to leave after one song cos so late.”

The O2’s official Twitter account posted at 10.36pm: “Justin Bieber is now on stage and apologizes for the lateness of his show.

“Sorry to all the Justin Bieber fans for the lateness of his show tonight. The Tube will still be running when the show finishes.”

Bieber recently celebrated turning 19 in the capital, but branded it his “worst birthday” and hit out at the “weak ass club” he attended.

The nightclub insisted that it had turned him away for bringing along underage friends such as Will Smith’s 14-year-old son Jaden Smith and 17-year-old Ella Paige Clark, claims which Bieber denied.

Skyfall Breaks Box Office Record For Bond Films

Skyfall Breaks Box Office Record For Bond Films

After the crashing disappointment that was Quantum Of Solace in 2008, Skyfall marks the most impressive return to form, standing comparison with Daniel Craig’s first outing as 007 in the superb Casino Royale, and laying serious claim to being the best Bond  film ever made.

The latest 007 movie has justified the excessive publicity and taken morein its first weekend than any other.

The 23rd Bond film which has been a huge hit with the critics, also topped box office rankings around the world after opening on Friday.

The movie, which has not yet been shown in the US, took $77.7m (£48.3m) across the globe, and was number one in every country where it opened.

In the UK, as well as making history as the biggest Bond opening weekend of all time, Skyfall set a new record as the most attended film on a Saturday. However Skyfall failed to smash the record set by last year’s Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2.

The movie, which stars Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe, claimed the biggest opening of the year so far in the UK.

Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, producers of the 23rd 007 movie, said: “We are absolutely overwhelmed with the reaction to Skyfall this weekend. It is particularly thrilling as the UK is home to James Bond and it being the 50th anniversary year.”

James Bond is the longest-running film franchise in history.

Jeff Blake, Chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, said: “To have Skyfall embraced at such unprecedented levels is tremendously exciting.”

Craig has signed up to return as 007 in two more Bond films, in the longest-running and most successful franchise in film history.

His Bond debut Casino Royale took £13.4m in its opening weekend in the UK, while 2008 film Quantum Of Solace raked in £15.4m.

The royal world premiere of the Sam Mendes film took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London last week, attended by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

Gary Barlow Thanks Fans For Support

Gary Barlow Thanks Fans For Support

Gary Barlow has thanked fans for their support over his baby heartbreak

Gary Barlow has thanked fans for their “overwhelming” support after his daughter Poppy was stillborn.

The Take That singer and his wife Dawn issued a statement earlier this week saying Poppy was delivered stillborn in London on Saturday.

The star told fans on Twitter today: “Your kind words and lovely messages are overwhelming. thank you.”

A charity fund has been set up by fans in his daughter’s memory and aims to raise £100,000 for the stillbirth and neonatal death charity Sands. A page, set up on justgiving.com, said the move is a “mark of respect”.

A statement said: “As fans and many of us as parents we all want to show love and support to the Barlow family. Here we can make a difference, and leave united messages of love and support. This is a united donation from all Gary Barlow and TT (Take That) fans.”

The 41-year-old singer previously spoke about how he was looking forward to becoming a father for the fourth time with his wife, a 42-year-old dancer. The X Factor judge announced in February that his wife was expecting another child – a sister for Daniel, Emily and Daisy.

Friends and colleagues of the singer expressed their condolences. Former bandmate Robbie Williams, whose wife Ayda Field is expecting their first child, posted a message on his blog saying: “My thoughts are with Gary, Dawn and family right now x.”

Fellow X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos wrote: “My thoughts & prayers are with @GBarlowOfficial and wife dawn tonight. Heartbreaking x.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote: “Dearest Dawn & Gary, Madeleine & I are devastated about news of Poppy. Our thoughts & prayers are with you and your family. @GBarlowOfficial.”

The announcement has cast doubt on whether Gary will appear at Sunday’s Olympics closing ceremony. The singer has been widely tipped to play the show with his Take That bandmates and a final decision is expected later this week.

Justin Timberlake Not Releasing New Album

Justin Timberlake Not Releasing New Album

  • Posted: Aug 08, 2012

Reports that Justin Timberlake is working on ‘some crazy, crazy stuff’ for a new album have sent the Twittersphere giddy with excitement.

Sadly, it seems the rumours aren’t true.

The story was sparked when US producer Jim Beanz (left) referred to ‘the Justin Timberlake project’ in an interview with Digital Spy. Beanz, who has worked on tracks for the likes of Rihanna, Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani, added: ‘It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up!’

However, a representative for JT flatly denied the claims. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the publicist admitted that Timberlake is working with Timbaland on tracks for the latter’s Shock Value 3 album but ‘that’s it’.

So no new Timberlake album then, despite his last full-length release, FutureSex/LoveSounds, being released almost six years ago.

The fact the ‘news’ caused so much excitement is telling though. Quite simply, JT needs to get his act together and put out a new album.

Keep clicking for seven reasons we wish the news were true…
