Justin Bieber showed off his generous side during a trip to New York by spending $10,000 (£6,250) on takeaway food for his entourage.

The Baby hitmaker was in the Big Apple over the weekend (09-10Feb13) to record his humorous turn on sketch show Saturday Night Live, and the teenager's hilarious skits helped him work up an appetite.

When the cameras stopped rolling, the hungry singer ordered in a huge spread of Chinese food from expensive Manhattan eaterie Philippe Chow for his pals and aides, according to the New York Daily News.

A source tells the publication, "He loves the chicken satay."

Bieber wowed the Saturday Night Live audience with his appearance on the show, during which he serenaded Whoopi Goldberg and mocked recent reports alleging he had smoked marijuana.
