Justin Bieber falls off stage – and the cringeworthy moment is caught on film

Looked at from afar, Justin Bieber seems to lead a charmed life.
Aged just 22, he could retire today and never have to worry about money for the rest of his life. He has legions of adoring fans who hang on his every social media utterance as if it’s been carved on a stone tablet and carried down Mountain Sinai. Negative headlines ( Justin Bieber video is most complained about of all time; Justin Bieber kicked out of Mexican archeological site) have negligible impact on his career.
Given his status as untouchable showbiz boy-king, it can be tempting to allow oneself a small amount of schadenfreude when something mildly unfortunate befalls young Biebs - like when he fell off stage mid-concert last week.
The fall occurred while Justin was adjusting his trousers during a show on Thursday night Saskatchewan, Canada.
Bieber was fine afterwards, getting up to carry on with the concert, after which he tweeted: "Great show tonight. #PurposeTour.”
It was his second mid-concert tumble of the year, after this slip-up during a performance in Kansas City, Missouri.
