1D's Louis Tomlinson Defends Justin Bieber

One Direction star says Biebs is just like any other normal teenager...

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has spoken out in defence of Justin Bieber after the teen pop sensation's troubled week.

Biebs hit the headlines a few days ago after fans were kept waiting for his performance at the O2 in London - and then again yesterday after a physical confrontation with a photographer.

But 1D star Louis - who is also currently on a world tour - suggested that the press and public should cut him a bit more slack.

"Although I don't know him personally, I do wish the press would take it easy on @justinbieber," he tweeted.

"I really do empathise with him, I don't see anything out of character in comparison to any other teenagers I know."

And meanwhile Biebs was applauding his own fans on Twitter following another gig at the London arena.

He wrote: "Still a little short of breathe tonight but was an incredible show. London fans go hard! 4 SOLD OUT O2 shows in a row!! #BLESSED."
