Justin Bieber cut short a show in Argentina on Sunday (10Nov13) after falling sick with a nasty bout of food poisoning.
The Boyfriend hitmaker received news of his triumph at the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam, Holland just hours before he was due to take the stage for a second night in Buenos Aires, accepting his Best Male award via a video.
He then took to Twitter.com to tell his followers about the honour, but also shared some disappointing news, writing, "Sitting here with food poisoning and heard we won Best Male at the EMAs. Thanks everyone."
Bieber added, "Argentina been a rough day but the show must go on. I'm coming...This sucks.... Not feeling so good. Actually pretty sick. Pulling it together. Argentina we got a show to do. Love u (sic)."
The 19 year old took to the stage despite feeling ill, only to succumb to his illness and cancel the remainder of the concert.
Bieber's friend, video producer Alfredo Flores, also took to the microblogging site to praise his pal for attempting to put on the show despite his health scare, writing, "Going against doctors' orders he still went on stage tonight. The last thing Justin ever wants to do is let his fans down... He gave it his all but health always comes first. Proud of him for even getting out there and giving it a go. Today was a rough one."
Bieber's food poisoning hit a day after he was kicked out of his hotel in Buenos Aires on Saturday (09Nov13) after fans camping on the street disturbed the peace.
His headline-grabbing incidents also include being charged with vandalism for spraying graffiti on a wall in Brazil last Tuesday (05Nov13) and being filmed sleeping in a Brazilian hotel suite by a model. The clip has racked up more than 17 million views on YouTube.com.
