(Newser) – More evidence of a meltdown? Justin Bieber collapsed during a performance last night at a London arena. Backstage, he was given oxygen as he took a 20-minute break; then he hit the stage again to finish the show, against doctors' recommendations, Reuters reports. Bieber had been "very light of breath," his manager told the audience. "The whole show he has been complaining."

Afterward, the singer was hospitalized. "Getting better," he tweeted, along with a shirtless self-portrait from the hospital bed, per E! Online. "Thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. Best fans in the world." Some of those fans, however, have taken to tweeting with the hashtag "#justintakeabreak."

Fainted ? Isn't that what women do ? You mean he was so drunk he passed out ? Or his heart missed a beat because of all the drugs he injested. This guy is not long for this world.

So what? He is nothing more than a no talent, hyped, teenage attention getter that no one will even remember in five years from now. This crap makes me want to puke!

Justin was a young man with a modicum of talent, his mother rather then nurture his talent decided to make money off him. She sold him to producer (Scooter Braun) who enlisted a music industry insider (Usher) to make him a star, a star not a musician. He is now a star, his mother has money, and is free of him, Braun has made millions and split it with Usher, the only thing missing is? Bieber! Of course he's losing it, he never had a chance to grow up. Of course he could, he could walk away and perhaps enrol in college and come back later without all the blood sucking leeches but who among us was mature enough to do something like that at 19?
