With his recent history of lashing out at overenthusiastic crowds, it seems like Justin Bieber could use a little break from the limelight. Instead, JB’s apparently decided to extend his Purpose world tour by bringing it back stateside.
The 22-year-old dropped the news during an impromptu Q&A session with fans at his concert in Hamburg, Germany, last night (November 14). A British fan near the stage asked him, “Is there going to be a Purpose tour movie?” and JB offered up a super revealing response.
“I don’t know yet,” he said. “We haven’t really discussed it yet. But I still have another year to talk about it because I’m on tour for a while. I’m doing stadiums in North America, which is going to be pretty awesome.
“So hopefully we do a Purpose tour movie,” he continued. “If not, I’ll be doing other movies, which will be pretty cool.”
OK. So. Let’s break this answer down a bit. Fans have been clamoring for a new Bieber movie since 2011’s Never Say Never and 2013’s Believe. The jury’s still out on a Purpose tour film, but he mentioned he’s “doing other movies.” Does that mean he’s foraying into acting, Harry Styles–style? Earlier this year, rumors began swirling that he was joining Pitch Perfect 3, but nothing’s confirmed yet ... so keep those eyes locked on his iMDB page.
And then there’s the whole bit about bringing his Purpose tour back to North America for a stadium run: an exciting but unexpected development. His tour is currently slated to continue through April 2017 with legs in Latin America and Australia, so it’d be a while before his stateside return. Let’s just hope that when he does hit stadium stages, he’s feeling his best. American Beliebers will be waiting, Justin.
