Justin Bieber declares “I love New Zealand” after whirlwind trip

The popstar has had a rough time of it in Australia, but it seems as if his visit to Kiwi shores proved to be smoother sailing.
China bans Justin Bieber for bad behaviour

Hot on the heels of his Auckland concert, Justin Bieber has declared he loves New Zealand as he departed the country for his next stop on the Purpose World Tour.

The ‘Sorry’ singer took to Twitter earlier this morning to give a shout out to his Kiwi fans, writing: “I love New Zealand”.

Despite keeping a relatively low profile during his time here, the 23-year-old singer clearly loved his stay and took in plenty of Kiwi sights.

His last activity was a death-defying turn on Queenstown’s Canyon Swing, where he jumped backwards into a 109m freefall.

The singer has been living it up in the South Island since performing at his Auckland gig over the weekend. After flying in on Sunday aboard his private jet, Justin was spotted out and about in Queenstown and Arrowtown, where he grabbed gelato at Ferburger’s spin-off branch Mrs Fergs and delighted an older fan by dancing shirtless with her at a bar.

While he hit headlines for his interactions with fans in Australia – where he was filmed telling a fan “you make me sick” after he was waylaid on his way back to his car – he stopped to chat with about 60 fans who had been waiting for him in Arrowtown, according to eyewitness reports.

“He said, ‘Hi girls, how are you?’” Wakatipu High School student Nell Watherston told Stuff.

“We apologised for interfering but he said, ‘Don’t be sorry for something you haven’t done.’”

While in Queenstown, Justin took a turn on the popular Shotover Jet with some pals.

While in the South Island, Justin was also snapped taking a thrill ride with pals on Queenstown’s popular Shotover Jet.

The singer has now left New Zealand for his next world tour stop in Santiago, Chile.
