Remember when Justin Bieber smacked his head into a glass revolving door a few years ago? Well, he faced his clear nemesis again Thursday at a concert in Paris when he bonked his noggin on a glass wall and suffered a concussion.
The 18-year-old chaos causer told TMZ by phone that he hit his head on the wall, performed a song, walked off stage, felt woozy and then passed out for 15 seconds. His doctor said he had a concussion, but would be just fine.
The Biebs is currently cracking jokes about the incident on Twitter: “i will see u again Glass. I will have my revenge. BIEBER vs GLASS. MGM LAS VEGAS 2013. lol.” Lol indeed, Bieber. (@JustinBieber; TMZ)
