Justin Bieber was in Chicago on Wednesday for a confusing show at Allstate Arena dubbed "An Evening With Justin Bieber." The event wasn't a concert, but rather a screening of his new short film, Purpose: The Movement, followed by a compelling Q&A with a stadium full of teenagers. 

But before he headed to Rosemont for his special night, the perennial chart-topper decided to blow off some steam at the Piotrowski Park skate park in Little Village. He had a jolly good time on the Southwest Side, tweeting "Thanks to the people who allowed me to just have fun and be normal (kind of) for a little."

But for Bieber, being normal apparently means preventing the locals from joining you for a shred session. Chicago Sun-Times breaking news reporter Jordan Owen reported that his crew was not letting anyone else in, even though he did not have a permit to close the space.

If the pop star's entourage did, in fact, bar other skaters from the park, then it wouldn't be the first time Bieber naively offended Chicagoans. In the summer of 2013, a photo was captured of him checking out the Stanley Cup in the Blackhawks' locker room while standing squarely on the team's logo, which is a big no-no. That bad juju may have affected the Hawks' playoff run the following year, as they lost to the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Finals.
