Justin Bieber’s love for London is well documented — but the Biebs got a rude awakening on Sunday when a stranger gave him and fans the runaround while waiting for the pop star to arrive at Heathrow Airport.
It looked as if he was prepared for Bieber to come, too, with luggage and an entourage of bodyguards waiting in the terminal, but a door into the airport’s main security building malfunctioned.
Bieber fans were frustrated that they couldn’t rush the crowd — a Reuters reporter counted at least 25 waiting — but they still gathered, keeping a vigil to hear if Bieber had finally arrived.
Ultimately, the door door stayed closed. A momentary realization came that the crooner’s priority might not actually be his fans’ top concern.
Still, the troupe worked a crowd to get some videos of Bieber, tweeting #DiehardJustinBieberCrew and their views from inside the terminal, while the fan club Instagram account offered a poolside shot of Bieber posing with the handler who shut the door.
