JUSTIN BIEBER dissed Indonesia at an event in London this week, where he was premiering his new album "Believe" to local members of the media.
--When talking about one of his songs, he said, quote, "I was in some random country." His manager told the crowd it was INDONESIA.
--Justin went on, quote, "I recorded it in a studio . . . some little place. They didn't know what they were doing."
--The "Wall Street Journal" reports that this Indonesian "insult," quote, "broke the hearts of thousands of fans" . . . although it's hard to imagine that they were serious.
--Regardless, Indonesians probably aren't cool with being labeled "some random country" . . . or to be referred to as the home of sub-par recording engineers. (???)
--For what it's worth, when Justin was in Indonesia last spring, he Tweeted, quote, "Indonesia was HYPED!!! Great show and met the 'Indonesian CHUCK NORRIS' . . . he was the guy driving the pickup truck in our Police escort. #BEAST."
(--By the way, we checked the Indonesian social media hubs for Justin Bieber fans . . . yes, they exist . . . and there didn't seem to be much backlash, at least in English. You can check too: On Twitter and Facebook.)
