Rough week for Bieber
Justin Bieber's week just got worse.
Following a brief hospital stay after fainting backstage, the 19-year-old pop star's preparation for a final concert in London on Friday hit a speed bump.
Bieber got into an altercation with insult-hurling paparazzi, lashing out at a photographer with a stream of expletives as he was restrained by minders.
The singer quickly took to Twitter to address the incident, which was captured by Channel 5 news, and pledged to channel his "adrenaline" into his Friday show.
"Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me," he posted on the social networking site.
"Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u...well I'm human. Rough week."
The scuffle came just hours after Bieber said he was "getting better" after struggling to breathe during the previous night's concert at the O2 Arena and pledged the show would go on as planned.
A spokesman for the O2 Arena said the 19-year-old pop star was treated backstage during Thursday's concert after becoming short of breath, but recovered and finished his set.
A spokeswoman for Bieber said he was recovering after Thursday's incident, which saw him given oxygen before returning to the stage.
HARPER ON 'DOCTORS'
Actress Valerie Harper plans to discuss her brain cancer with some television doctors.
The daytime talk show "The Doctors" said Harper will appear Monday to talk with Travis Stork, Lisa Masterson and Andrew Ordon, as well as her own team of doctors.
The 1970s sitcom star has been diagnosed with a rare brain cancer and told she has as little as three months to live. She said her husband briefly withheld the diagnosis from her because it was so dire.
Harper, now 73, played Rhoda Morgenstern on television's "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and its spinoff, "Rhoda."
She is given the full hour of Monday's talk show and is surprised by former co-stars Ed Asner and Cloris Leachman.
South Korean rapper PSY says he'll unveil his much-awaited follow-up to "Gangnam Style" next month and celebrate it with a huge concert in Seoul.
PSY made the announcement Friday on YouTube, where his "Gangnam Style" video has a record 1.39 billion views.
PSY said he'll release the new single on April 13 and hold a concert at a soccer stadium that evening. He's dubbed the concert "Happening" and says it will be broadcast live on YouTube.
