Justin Bieber was attacked by a fan on-stage during his performance at the Sevens Stadium in Dubai today.

Bieber was at the piano performing a song when a fan rushed on stage and grabbed Bieber from behind, according to The National. Security guards swarmed the attacker, while Bieber managed to free himself and continue performing to the side of the stage. The piano was knocked over in the tussle.

It was a pretty bizarre scene as you can see from the video above or the Vine that captures the immediate aftermath below:

Bieber was 2 hours late to the show (apparently, a new bad habit for him) and The Atlantic speculated the attacker might have been angry that Bieber was late. Bieber's trip abroad has been pretty rocky: Swedish cops raided his tour bus and found weed, Germans took away his monkey (that's not code for anything, guys) and the non-Belieber denizens of the world rolled their eyes collectively when the teen heartthrob said he hoped Anne Frank would have been a Belieber.
