Justin Bieber may have millions of fans, but it seems Canada, where Bieber is originally from, is one place the “Beauty and the Beat” singer is going to have to try a little harder to impress.
According to The Associated Press, Bieber took the stage for a performance at Canada’s Grey Cup where he was met with boo’s. Even before the 18-year-old heart-throb was set to take the stage, the sheer mention of “Justin Bieber” was met with displeasure from the awaiting crowd.
Bieber didn’t take the boo’s to heart, after he performed “Beauty and the Beat” and “Boyfriend” he told the crowd, “Thank you so much Canada! I love you.”
The multi American Music Award winner also took to Twitter to show his Canadian pride, writing, “honored to perform for my country. #ProudCanadian . Good luck in the second half. Thanks.”

Also making headlines, the Biebs reportedly met Prime Minister Stephen Harper in overalls, which is causing a bit of firestorm, Huffington Post reports.
Bieber was on hand to meet the Prime Minster to receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal which honors “significant contributions and achievements by Canadians."
His meeting of Prime Minister Harper was also met with displeasure by the media, who reportedly called the young superstar out for not having a suit on hand.
Bieber addressed the comments by snapping a photo of the article and posted it on Instagram, where he replied writing, “The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where i was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet and greet to him, if you "Hayley" expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan a suit at that specific time that's crazy, It wasn't like it was like I was going into his environment we were at a hockey arena. Wow am i ever white trash hayley peterson lol.”
