Justin Bieber shoves fan's phone down his pants during concert

Suddenly the reason Justin Bieber insists on wearing harem pants makes much more sense -- he needs space to shove random pieces of technology in.

During a concert in Newark, N.J., the pop star tried to stop fans from throwing things like bandanas on the stage while he was performing. Clearly his explanation of the word "refrain" didn't work very well, because a fan responded to his request by throwing his or her phone on stage.

At that point, Bieber responded by saying he really needs an iPhone, and stuck the object down his pants. The crowd roared its approval after, but unfortunately it didn't seem like the original phone owner got the cellphone back.
