Mumbai: Ever since the announcement, there’s a lot of excitement for Grammy winner artist, Justin Bieber’s highly anticipated concert from his Purpose Tour in India, which is happens today. When everyone got to know about the high-end arrangements that are being made for the pop sensation and his demands, pretty much everyone lost it.

While many had their jaw dropping over the pop sensation’s “too many requirements”, there were also few who took the singer’s side. One of them is Indian singer Sonu Nigam, who doesn’t understand why everyone is acting so ignorant and are so amazed at what Bieber has apparently asked for.

 

“I am surprised people make fun of Bieber. He is the most trolled artist and yet year after year he has been proving people wrong. People have been trolling him since he was a child. Kitne mean hotey hain log. Bacche ko bhi nahi choda. He is a billionaire and there is a reason why he is doing so well. It has to be his talent. Why should I not like him? He is a good singer and definitely not fake as far as his singing is concerned,” Sonu told TOI in an interview.

He further added, “Dene waley de rahe hain na, toh humko kya problem hai? Why are we acting so ignorant and why are we so amazed at what Bieber has apparently asked for? Every singer who comes to India asks for these things. Purple curtains, satin beds... they have their quirks, it's their system. Even a Madonna or Beyonce would ask for it.”

Sonu also mentioned how Indian artists make high-end demands as well. “This happens here too. I know of Indians who do it as well. Certain music composers demand a swimming pool facing suite if someone else gets it. I would never ask for it as we don't humiliate people who work with us like this. Do we stay in our homes like this? We don't, right? International artistes do it. This is their 'loudspeaker'. All I expect is a good sound system for my concert. Who has the time to enjoy Jacuzzi! The focus is always the voice,” he concluded.
