Justin Bieber fans lose their minds again, this time in New Zealand

Bieber-NZ The way to Justin Bieber's heart does not -- we repeat, not -- involve knocking down his mother. And please don't steal his stuff either. All it will get you is disappointment. 

This apparently was news to 500 or so fans who turned out to greet the pop sensation at the Auckland, New Zealand, airport on Monday and got so pushy and crushy that police simply whisked him away, MTV reports.

Even worse (and we say that with a large dollop of sarcasm), Bieber's hat was snatched right off his head in the fracas by a girl who then held it for ransom. Via Twitter, Emah Hira Matiu, 17, asked for a hug in exchange for the hat.

She told TVNZ that after taking the cap, she "shoved it down my shirt ... got trampled ... and then I ran away."

"I do know that I have technically stolen it," Matiu said. "But he's a celebrity and this is what you get for being famous ... kinda comes with the deal ... we didn't mean to upset him, all we wanted was a hug."

Bieber, however, isn't shy about what he's not down with, and he wasn't down with the girl's demands. "[N]o hugs. no thank u's," he tweeted after the hat was returned -- with a note including contact information tucked inside. 

A bungee jump did briefly get the singer away from the crowds.

Bless him, they shouldn't of done that all he wants is to see his fans and get going not getting his hat snathched and his mum pushed over. That is probaly the worst place he has been, it would be for me if that happened to me


that is the worst thing someone could do to a celebrity they give you a lot of stuff like concerts shows and you can go to their website and go to their store but that was so mean of the people who did that...... who ever did that they should be a ashamed of there self..............................................................

Justin...enjoy the mania while you can...because as you get older, you'll be long forgotten because you will by then evolved into just another Leif Garrett or Todd Bridges while partying up with Lindsay Loser Lohan (who will still be the party trash gal at age 40)...har, har..
