Justin Bieber Banned from Touring China for "Bad Behaviour"
Published Jul 21, 2017Justin Bieber is about to embark on another leg of his "Purpose World Tour," but he won't be performing in China any time soon.
According the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture, the 23-year-old Canadian singer is no longer welcome in the country for his past "bad behaviour."
The Canadian Press reports that the Bureau responded to a fan question on its website about why Bieber wasn't allowed to perform in China. "In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers," the statement explained.
It continued: "We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public."
The last time Bieber travelled to China was in 2013. During his visit, he grabbed headlines for hysterical hijinks like getting carried up the Great Wall and cruising around Beijing topless on a segway.
Unfortunately, there's no one making any effort to ban the Biebs from his upcoming pair of Toronto shows. Get full details on Bieber's upcoming tour dates here.
