Justin Bieber forgot the words to part of one of his songs at his most recent concert in San Jose, CA.
The dramatic moment happened at his Bay Area show on Wednesday (June 26), just one day after the singer’s successful two-day stint at the Staples Center, Los Angeles.
The 19-year-old’s slip-up occurred in the acoustic part of his set during a performance of a song called “Fall.”
Hoisted above the screaming, adoring masses on a moving mechanical arm, Bieb played acoustic guitar as he sang — then forgot — part of the words.
The Canadian’s memory fail actually isn’t that noticeable, and probably the only reason anyone’s writing about it, is because the pop star was honest about it on Twitter.
In a tweet posted yesterday Bieber referred to his lyric lapse, writing:
“San Jose was right tonight. I might of forgot the words to Fall for a second there. Things happen. Lol.”
Things kept on happening both on and off the first leg of Bieber’s Believe World Tour, although — so far — forgetting a few lines to a song is the only drama on the recently resumed trek itself.
Over recent months the teen singer has become a magnet for police investigations, lawsuits, amid a Radar Online generated rumor that his manager Scooter Braun was trying to get his protege into rehab.
The rumor was denied by Braun last week in a dismissive tweet that read:

However, hot on the heels of pictures and video obtained by E! News of Bieber apparently kissing a still married, and reportedly, separated Las Vegas waitress Jordan Ozuna at an indoor skydiving facility, comes a new lawsuit arising from an alleged incident last year.
Bieber is being sued by a paparazzo who claims the singer kicked and punched him at a shopping center in Calabasas, Calif., on May 27, 2012.
In a lawsuit filed Wednesday, it’s alleged the teen singer attacked Jose Osmin Hernandez while on a movie date with his then-girlfriend, actress and singer Selena Gomez.
Duran claims Bieber struggled to negotiate his Mercedes Sprinter van out of the complex’s parking lot. The paparazzo claims the singer first swore at a group of photographers surrounding him, then jumped out of his van and sprinted toward him.
Duran says Bieber jumped into the air up to 8 feet away then assaulted him with a martial arts style kick to his abdomen, before punching him in the face and pushing him up against a car.
Despite a finding of “superficial” injuries when Duran was examined by L.A. County fire personnel and a police deputy at the scene at the time — and later by a hospital doctor — the paparazzo is now seeking unspecified damages for “severe and extreme emotional distress” and negligence.
Bieber is set to perform at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena tonight (June 28) as the Believe world tour continues.
The last time the singer appeared at the MGM he was booed as he accepted the Milestone award at the 2013 billboard Music Awards. It’s unlikely tonight’s performance by the pop star to a sold out 16,800-strong audience of his fans will see a repeat of that reaction.
San Jose was right tonight. I might of forgot the words to Fall for a second there. Things happen. Lol
