Phone in his pants, Bieber strikes again

---- — Newark, N.J. (AP) – During a concert in Newark, New Jersey, this week, fans began throwing items on stage while the the 19-year-old pop star was performing.

“Can you please refrain from throwing things on stage, please and thank you,” Bieber asked the crowd after a bandana and a few other random things were hurled his way.

Apparently, that just egged some overzealous people on as more stuff was tossed at the singer.

“Refrain — do you know what refrain is? Don’t throw,” Bieber told the audience. “Are you guys going to keep throwing things on stage or should I keep performing?”

Eventually someone threw a cell phone, so Bieber grabbed it and, naturally, shoved it down his pants to the delight of many concertgoers, judging by the female screams.

Selena Gomez’s on-off ex laughed, took the phone out before giving one last “for real, don’t throw” instruction, then continued on with the rest of his 90-minute show.
