Justin Bieber’s first film, the 3D biopic Never Say Never, premiered in Europe last night at O2 Cineworld in London to hoards of screaming fans.
The teen pop sensation, who earlier this week scooped a Brit Award for Best International Breakthrough Artist, whipped his followers in to a frenzy by announcing on twitter a few hours earlier that he would be giving out free tickets at the premiere.
He wrote: “UK fans!!! Heads up… rumors are true… the team will be giving out random tickets to fans at the O2 today for the #NSN3D premiere 2nite!
“You don’t need any wristbands…just be at the O2 and u might get a ticket. Gotta give back. Thanks!”
Some of the 16-year-old’s notoriously die-hard fans, known as Beliebers, had camped out overnight to ensure they got prime spots at the front of the crowd.
The film charts Justin’s rise to fame, from his childhood in Canada through his discovery by music exec Scooter Braun on YouTube, to his meteoric ascent to global superstardom.
It also features fellow celebs Miley Cyrus, Jaden Smith, Snoop Dogg and Justin’s mentor Usher.
The Canadian popette also discussed sex and politics for the first time this week in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, saying: “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them.”
He also revealed: “I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s like killing a baby?”
When asked about politics he declared: “I’m not sure about the parties. But whatever they have in Korea, that’s bad.”
Never Say Never is released across the UK on 18 February.
