Perma-tween Justin Bieber is in town this week to promote his 3-D biopic opus "Never Say Never" and decided to swing by Madison Square Garden for a Knicks game last night. Hopefully, the singer will fare better on the big screen than on the arena's jumbotron, since spectators roundly booed his appearance (here's the video).
"Why would you boo the kid?" announcer Mike Breen asked on the TV broadcast. Unclear, although possessive Best Coast fans have reasons to sweat the kid. Earlier, a young girl sitting nearby Bieber (and Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who no one blamed for the boos) collapsed in tears upon seeing her idol. Bieber dealt with the catty crowd more maturely than that, and omitted the incident from his Twitter stream of the game.
