Life served Justin Bieber a warm glass of tough shit when someone swiped the 18-year-old's computer and digital camera.
"Yesterday during the show, me and my tour manager Josh had some stuff stolen," Bieber tweeted. "Really sucks. People should respect other's property."
The incident happened in Washington on Tuesday night during a concert at the Tacoma Dome, reports Billboard. However, no investigation is underway because a police report has not been filed, says the city's police spokesman.

But in most circles, "personal footage" is a polite way of referring to a remarkably embarrassing solo porn video that shows you pouring hot candle wax over your testicles while rubbing a Tickle Me Elmo doll on your nipples.
For the sake of America's tweens, let's just hope that someone destroys that file immediately before Bieber becomes the poster child for uncomfortably kinky sexual deviance.
