Police in Sydney cancelled Bieber’s performance after a swarm of teenagers surged toward the venue in a frenzy! Ten girls had to be pulled from the crowd. Eight girls were taken to the hospital. One out the eight had fractured her knee cap, but most of them hyperventilated.
The commotion reportedly began because the doors were supposed to open at 5:00pm, but instead they opened at 3:00pm, leaving fans to believe the teen icon had arrived early. Police have stated that the station was prepared, but the frenzy got out of control. Many of the teenages were there without parents.
M.I.A.’s Violent Video Banned from YouTube
Due to graphic violence, you will not be able to find M.I.A‘s new video on YouTube.

“F*ck UMG who won’t show it on YouTube!” M.I.A. tweeted.
Then she later clarified that UMG was not at fault. The video was unveiled this morning on the singer’s official website.
Drake falls onstage and he re-injures his knee. MC tweets after fall, “Getting surgery this week but I’m walking”….
Drake took a chance when he decided to perform on the “America’s Most Wanted” tour with an injured knee, and that chance turned out badly on Friday night, when he had a nasty fall and had to be helped offstage at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey.
The up-and-coming rapper/singer tore his ACL several weeks ago and, up until just before the tour — which also features Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy and others — began, it was up in the air as to whether he would perform at all at all. However, he decided to take a risk and play a short set, coming onstage for three songs.
In footage of the fall on YouTube, Drake is seen walking past Lil Wayne (with whom he was performing) and suddenly slipping. Within seconds, stagehands help him up and assist the badly limping MC offstage.
Lil Wayne stops the track and jokes with the crowd about needing extra insurance for the tour. He asks the audience to make some noise for Drizzy, and then asks if any ladies in the house can do Drake‘s verse for him.
After his fall, Drake tweeted about the fall.
“We straight,” he wrote. “Just to show that this ACL sh– ain’t a joke. Thanks for the support, and we’ll be back … Young moola.”
“All is well…,” he wrote later. “On the bus laying down… Getting surgery this week but I’m walking. Thank my whole YM family for the help. Lion Hearts!”
His DJ, Future, tweeted about the incident as well.
“When you love what you do, you take risks for the people that love what you do. He took the risk for the fans.”
There was no official word on Drake‘s condition or when he might rejoin the tour, which continues at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York on Saturday night (August 1), at press time.
Drake talked with MTV News about his injury during the tour’s kickoff last week.
“I didn’t really get any approval from my doctor, but I made a personal decision 48 hours ago that I’d be letting a lot of people down if I didn’t show up and at least show them I’m there for them,” Drake said. “For the last two weeks, I’ve been really going hard, getting all types of acupuncture, trying to bring the swelling down. I’m walking around — no cane. I’ll put a brace on it tomorrow night. No one will probably even know I’m injured…I’m not doing my own set. That’s one thing I have to apologize to my fans about. It’s too much of a risk, if I hit that wrong turn [doing] 30 minutes every night. If I tear my ACL again, the doctors say I might not be able to walk again. I have to be cautious.”
