Justin Bieber Played a Secret Show in Queens

Disclaimer: Bieber not actually drinking.

If you thought teenage singing sensation Justin Bieber was the type of pop star who only cares about performing in sold-out stadiums alongside Taylor Swift, then you were very wrong: Judging by his small, top-secret show in Queens Friday night, he's also after indie cred. Yes, Bieber surprised only a few hundred screaming fans last night by holding an impromptu, outdoor show in the hip outer borough. The 16-year-old later tweeted, "had a blast at the secret show in Queens ... need to rest my voice and get some sleep." He added, "gnite girlz ;) sweet dreams ... " with a link to his own song, "One Less Lonely Girl" — that little cad! And now a few hundred fans can one day say that they saw Bieber back when he was playing small shows in Queens, adding, "I really only liked his early work."
