It may not have been Justin Bieber telling the masses to start riots, but you get the idea.
Norwegian police were reportedly “on the verge of declaring a STATE OF EMERGENCY in Oslo” yesterday, after tens of thousands of fans flooded the city.
Justin was there to perform a free six-song set for a primetime special on NBC, and the chaos got so bad that local officials asked him to take the stage EARLY before “all hell broke loose”.
At one point, a security officer claimed that “about 15 girls had passed out.”
But Justin wasn’t actually there. He was safely tucked away at a “secret location,” waiting for a helicopter to pick him up and take him to the stage. But he was aware of the insanity.
He Tweeted, “Norway: Please listen to the police. I don’t want anyone getting hurt. I want everything to go to plan but your safety must come first.
“For the show to happen you must all listen to the police. We’re all concerned for your safety and I want what is best for you. Please listen.”
So it wasn’t QUITE a riot, but it was darn close.
Here is some of the crazy video of it all:
