An Irish fan who spotted Justin Bieber walking around Grafton Street in Dublin today said he was "in shock" at the pop star's attitude.

Keith Casey, 27 from Dublin said he spotted the pop star walking out of a tanning salon in Grafton Street and was shocked by the singer's "aggressive attitude".

"He used aggressive body language and said 'dude stop recording me'.  I said 'I just want a photo, I'm going to see your show tonight' to which he replied 'I don't have a show tonight'," Keith told Independent.ie.

"I obviously was so excited and nervous to actually come face to face with him that I got confused but his attitude was terrible."

Keith said he spotted the singer and once it "sank in" he pursued him for a photo.

"Once it sank in as to who I just brushed shoulders with I stood outside waiting to ask him for a photo. I was the only one who knew he was in there on Grafton St. It's not like there were thousands of fans swarming him.

"His bodyguard was polite and just asked me to stop filming. However Justin got aggressive as you can see in my video. No need for it. My sister camped outside Ticketmaster for 24 hours to get a ticket to his show and this is his attitude."

Keith said he's going to give away his ticket to Bieber's concert following the exchange.

"I'm just in shock. It's not everyday a normal Irish person sees their idol in a sunbed shop and then they treat them with that attitude. Its just not fair. I was the only one who knew it was him. It's not like he was being mobbed. I'm just in shock."
