Justin Bieber Pukes On Stage in Glendale

Poor Justin. Things were going okay during his set at Arena in Glendale when all of the sudden he spewed chunks. He blamed it on some bad milk, but local art-rockers Man-Cat quickly got accused of poisoning the Biebs by "advocacy group" Association for Artistic Integrity.

"We have received damning evidence that local Phoenix-based radical audio-terrorist faction/'band' Man-Cat was directly involved in the attempted poisoning of Justin Bieber
this past Saturday at arena," AAI said in an email to the New Times. "The truth lies in video footage we have compiled to inform the masses."

"Approximately one hour before the concert, the dangerous, audio terrorist faction known as Man-Cat was spotted at the scene of the crime," a mustache masked man says in the video. It's almost convincing -- until you remember that Man-Cat is behind the phony group, using the guise as a vehicle for clever, often ingenious, commentary on the state of pop music.
