Downtown Los Angeles became Bieberville as hundreds of Justin Bieber fans filled the LA Live complex on Tuesday for the premiere of the Baby hitmaker’s first movie, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, a part concert film and part biopic.
The mostly teen crowd, many in homemade T-shirts proclaiming themselves Bieber’s No. 1 fan, filled the plaza hours ahead of the screening, hoping to catch a glimpse of Bieber.
“I’m so happy I have such amazing fans,” Bieber said as he introduced the film. Bieber’s fans, who call themselves “Beliebers”, play a big role in the film. They’re shown throughout the film in their T-shirts, singing along with his songs and crying from sheer joy at seeing him in person.
