It was probably an intended swipe at the It was probably an intended swipe at the 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10) when Justin Bieber conveniently scheduled a live stream to chat with fans and share new music during the televised ceremony on CBS.
Almost 40 minutes past his scheduled 8 p.m. ET log-in time and numerous attempts later, Bieber took to Twitter and wrote, “livestream is over capacity [and is] not letting me in the room give me a second lol.” Due to the overwhelming number of Beliebers who might be let down, he instead promised to post a video.
Around 10:30 p.m., fans finally got a taste of what they had been waiting for all night long: a glimpse of their shirtless pop star in what appeared to be a home movie theater. Explaining that he’s currently on vacation without high-speed Internet, Bieber said, “It’s just not working. My fans are just overpopulating the sites and I just don’t think it’s going to work. So I’m just going to make a video and play some new music.”
Shortly into the almost two-minute-long message, the Biebster cut the chitchat and unveiled an unfinished clip of a new, airy R&B tune called “You Want Me,” on which he sings of wooing a girl away from her problems.
“I can take you to a new world/ Take your problems away/ Tell me what you want to do girl/ Just come right this way,” he softly croons on the mid-tempo cut. After posting the video, the singer tweeted, “its not finished but heres a little part a song I’m working on,” with a link to the track on SoundCloud.
Even though he didn’t receive any Grammy love, the Biebs kept quite busy this past weekend. Just a day earlier, the pop star served double duty on “Saturday Night Live,” where he confronted a few controversies including the leaked photos of the star smoking weed.
