Justin Bieber's Glass Concussion and Other Celeb Onstage Mishaps

Yahoo Contributor Network

Justin Bieber went head-to-head - literally - with a pane of glass while performing a surprise concert for fans in Paris on Thursday. He quickly exited the stage and passed out for a few seconds in his dressing room, according to TMZ. The Biebs quickly got himself back together and went back on stage to perform the rest of the show.

He has a good attitude about the whole thing, though.

"I guess me and glass windows just don't work." He also had a run-in with a revolving glass door in Las Vegas in 2010.

"Im fine. just smacked my head and needed some water. all good," he tweeted, adding,"I will see u again Glass. I will have my revenge. BIEBER vs GLASS. MGM LAS VEGAS 2013. lol. #GottaLaughAtYourself."

The "Boyfriend" singer later admitted that one of his eyebrows has been paralyzed since the incident. Yikes!

Who else has been injured while performing for fans?

Bret Michaels

Bret Michaels has had his fair share of serious health problems over the past couple of years - problems that almost killed him. One of those incidents - a brain hemorrhage in 2010 - was possibly brought on by a hard hit he took at the 2009 Tony Awards. The singer just finished performing "Nothing But a Good Time" with his band Poison when a lowering stage prop smacked him as he left. The accident left him with a broken nose and busted lip.

Michaels ended up suing the Tony Awards and CBS and both sides just announced an amicable settlement.


If you've ever seen Pink live, you know that she does a breathtaking aerial act for part of the show. However, her well-practiced performance didn't go so well during a stop in Nuremberg, Germany in July 2010. The singer fell from high above the stage and landed on a security fence.

She wasn't seriously injured, just really sore.

"I'm so so so sorry to end the show that way," she tweeted at the time. "I'm embarrassed …I'm in ambulance now but I will b fine. Didn't get clipped in2 harness correctly, drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade…I hope it at least looked cool!!!"


Beyonce doesn't call herself Sasha Fierce for nothing: The singer is unstoppable onstage, even when she falls down a staircase. The incident happened at an Orlando concert in 2007 - she fell down the stairs and quickly shook herself off and continued performing. Now that's dedication!

She did have one request, though. "If you taped that, please don't put it on YouTube," she asked the audience.

No one listened - it's still all over the web.
