Bieber's terrible European vacation

International man of mystery, Justin Bieber is not. (His middle name also isn't Danger. If you didn't get that reference, you have permission to skip work and go home now.) Canada's favorite drop-crotch pants-wearer, who recently achieved drinking age in that country -- aka turned 19 -- is in the midst of the European leg of his Believe tour. Unfortunately, Bieber seems to be experiencing a little ... how you say ... culture shock. Follow our map of his Euro adventure, and try not to plan your own vacation this way.

LONDON
March 1
Crappy birthday, dear Bieber? The singer dubbed 19 his "worst birthday" on Twitter after he was accused of bringing Will Smith's underage son, Jaden, into a club, and also said security was harassing his fans. Don't worry though, brahs, his friends flew in and made it all better.

March 4
Delayed jet lag much? Bieb turned up two hours late for his O2 arena show, taking the stage at 10:30 p.m. That's only about 20 minutes before his bedtime, so as you can imagine, he played a greatly shortened set, much to fans' dismay.

March 7
Boom goes the Bieber! After complaining of trouble breathing, the singer collapsed during this O2 arena show. He later tweeted a shirtless pic of himself recovering in a London hospital, which surely caused shortness of breath for more than a few fans.

March 8
Note to paparazzi: Bieber is way over you. After a photographer screamed at him and told him to go back to America, Bieb leaped out of his SUV and tried to attack. Fortunately, other paps got some great shots of Bieber's security team lifting him off the ground like a toddler, so it wasn't a total loss.

PORTUGAL
March 12
One out of two is ... pretty bad. While Bieber did take the stage for his March 11 date with Portugal, he canceled the next night's show due to "unforeseen circumstances." We're gonna translate that as: His hair product is illegal in this country.

MADRID
March 14
Tired of being made fun of and stuff after having a really bad start to his March, Bieber lashed out on Instagram, remarking that "Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity." The original version, however, encouraged anyone comparing him to Lindsay to "look at her 2012 tax statements ;)." Really, dude? A winky face?

PARIS
Monday
Fan disturbance, or too much partying? Bieber's rep denied that the singer had been booted from his luxe Paris hotel, saying instead there wasn't enough security to contain the masses. Good thing Paris has no shortage of gorgeous places to stay -- and screaming Parisians.
