JUSTIN BIEBER didn't really think this one through.
--During recent show, a fan threw her phone onstage . . . and Justin picked it up. Instead of immediately giving it back, he decided to have some fun with it. (--We're assuming it was a GIRL'S phone.)
--He took photos of himself and the crowd with it, which caused the girls in the audience to SHRIEK in excitement . . . and was probably a HUGE thrill for that lucky fan. Pretty cool, huh?
--Well, there's just one problem: It set a bad precedent. Suddenly, a bunch of girls were throwing THEIR phones onstage. Justin realized his mistake at this point, and didn't want to spend the rest of the night screwing with people's phones.
--He playfully scolded the crowd . . . saying quote, "Hey, no! We're not just going to keep [throwing] cell phones up here, and expecting everyone to just get pictures of me. No. That's not how it works. I'll never do that again, so don't even try it."
--But of course they DID try it . . . and cell phones continued to hit the stage.
--Justin went on, quote, "Hey! We're going to have a bunch of iPhones and I'm just going to take them home . . . No! I'm not touching your phones . . . Get [these] phones off the stage, guys, c'mon. I'm literally going to just break your phones.
--"You guys want broken phones by Justin Bieber? I'll do the honors."
--He even KICKED some of the phones away . . . although some pro-Justin fans on the Internet claim he was only PRETENDING to kick them.
