Spotted: Justin Bieber Takes Off In Tampa

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

It seems like Justin Bieber has been on the road constantly in 2010, and that’s because he basically was. His massive tour has taken him all over the world to perform in front of hundreds of thousands of fans, and along the way he has solidified himself as a top-shelf performer, a consummate professional and an evolving artist. But it all comes to an end this week, as his concert this Thursday, December 23 in Atlanta (his adopted hometown) will be the last of this year (and this tour). He’ll take a much-deserved break where he’ll be working on new music and preparing for the release of his film before going back to Europe in March. But he is still grinding the shows out, and on Sunday (December 19) he visited the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida for another amazing spectacle full of hot music and great effects.

He wasn’t the only star in the public eye over the weekend, as 30 Seconds to Mars took their big energy to Barcelona, Spain and Ludacris signed bottles of his Conjure Cognac at an event in Chicago.
