Justin Bieber is in China!

The singer was in Bejing this week for his Believe tour, and in his downtime he’s apparently seeing the cultural sights, like the Great Wall.

That seems like a great idea. Given his recent run of bratty scandals, from peeing in buckets to starting fights in parking lots, something like the Great Wall might give him perspective. After all, everyone, no matter how famous, still has to make their own way all the way to the top.

Oh, no. Oh, Justin.

Yeah, those are Justin Bieber’s bodyguards carrying him on their shoulders, according to fans on the scene. So much for perspective. The only perspective he’s getting is the sick view of the tops of the little people’s heads.

Lest you think this is the first time he gave his bodyguards a workout, earlier on his China trip he went skateboarding, forcing his bodyguards to sprint on foot to keep up.

Come on, man. On top of how rude all of this is, what if someone really does try to kidnap you? Your bodyguards will be too tired after your antics to stop them, and you’ve already proven that you’re easy to carry.
