THIS TIME, Justin Bieber is blaming food poisoning for forcing him to stop his show in Buenos Aires - the second stoppage during his South America tour. "I'm not feeling too good, I think I'm out of energy," he told the unhappy crowd, saying he was sorry and blowing a kiss before walking off the stage while the boos escalated. Bieber posted a "selfie" photo on Twitter showing himself receiving intravenous fluids, and his manager, Scooter Braun , came to his defense. Braun said that Bieber's food poisoning was so severe, he spent eight hours on an IV drip before Sunday night's show, and doctors advised canceling, but Bieber didn't want to disappoint his fans.

A mistake, his minders say - he thought it was a "private members club.

"Brazil goes hard," he tweeted. [Your comment here.]

Look into Miley Cyrus ' pixie peepers: innocent lass Hannah Montana is gone. "I've grown up," Miley, 20, tells the Daily Mail in a chat about her "We Can't Stop" vid, which has a drug reference.
