Justin Bieber, a real person, has survived a hug/attack/tackle from a male fan who rushed him onstage at a concert in Dubai. The fan knocked over a piano in the process, but Bieber escaped without any harm. The singer took a three-minute break and returned to perform an encore, later tweeting: "Dubai. Nothing stops the show."

The resilient Bieber has so far survived a murder and castration plot, a fan stampede, several shirtless nights and heartbreak of losing his monkey.


And now, your daily dose of schadenfreude:
