Justin Bieber almost fell over a plant as he arrived at St. Kilda bar Hotel Barkly with Selena Gomez in Melbourne, Australia last night (July 15th). While he’s down under, bits of info on the music video for “As Long As You Love Me” are being released.

In the still, Bieber looks bloodied and bruised and doing it all for the love of one lady. Big Sean lends his vocals to the song, and Bieber tweeted about getting visits on the set from Will.i.Am and other big stars.
Meanwhile, a mom of one of Bieber’s fan is suing the singer for being too loud. According to E!, Stacey Wilson Betts “suffered hearing loss, severe tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound) in both ears” as a result of Bieber’s show.
“[Bieber] climbed into a heart shaped, aluminum/steel gondola and was pulled out over the crowd,” creating a “wave like effect of screaming” that “enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion,” Betts said in the documents.
“Due to the negligence of Justin Bieber,” as well as that of the promoters and sound engineers who are “responsible to maintain safe decibels at all times during their events,” that steel gondola acted as “a sound conductor,” creating a “sound blast” that permanently damaged both of Betts’ ears.
I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of such a thing before.
