This weekend the world was rocked by the shocking news that Justin Bieber is not actually a cyborg sent by the Canadians to steal our hearts but is, in fact, a mortal man. As evidence by the internet, an ill Bieber performed in Glendale, Arizona and taking a cue from G. G. Allin vomited halfway through his set right on stage. The Biebs assured us he’s doing fine via his Twitter account and the cinephile singer tweeted an “Anchorman” reference shortly after the ordeal to prove he is in good spirits.
And …. Milk was a bad choice!Lol

In celebration of Justin Bieber’s love for movies and feeling better, here are the top 10 vomit scenes in film, according to some random guy on the internet.
10) “I Heart Huckabees”
In this David O. Russell cult-classic, a broken-down Jude Law comes to terms with his douche-ness in this manifestation of illness.
9) “The Sixth Sense”
Marissa Cooper – I mean, Mischa Barton – got her breakthrough role scaring the crap out of Haley Joel Osment by vomiting all over his awesome fort.
8) The 40-Year-Old Virgin”
Leslie Mann’s hilariously (and dangerously) steals the scene from Steve Carrell in the classic Apatow comedy – you’ll never think of shellfish the same way.
7) “I Love You, Man”
Paul Rudd is the most charismatic plan on the planet, even when he’s vomiting on Jon Favreau.
6) “Team America: World Police”
This particular scene from “Team America” may clock in as the longest of the bunch. Projectile vomiting marionettes – what will they think of next? The future is today.
5) “Stand By Me”
Although it’s an epic waste of pie, it’s a perfection illustration of the surrealism and hyperbole of campfire stories.
4) “The Sandlot”
“The Sandlot” edges out it’s kindred spirit “Stand By Me” only because it’s the best anti-chewing tobacco advertisement in a movie ever.
Perhaps the best comedy of 2011, “Bridesmaids” is a wonderful combination of high-brow and low-brow. Guess which one this is?
2) “The Fly”
Way before David Cronenberg became BFF’s with Robert Pattinson he was already in the habit of making handsome men do terrible things. Watch Jeff Goldblum vomit on himself and his friends!
1) “The Exorcist”
Perhaps the most iconic vomiting scene in cinema, this movie will scare children and hurt pea soup sales for generations to come.
