Justin Bieber hasn't had the best March. He's been booed for being late onstage, he's landed in the hospital, almost got into a fight with a paparazzo and, on top of everything else, his hamster died. That's a lot for any 19-year-old, multi-platinum pop star, and now the singer is lashing out at the negative press that has surrounded him for the last few weeks.
