Screaming fans prompt Justin Bieber to walk off stage

MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- It seems even Justin Bieber finds his screaming fans irritating.

The pop star walked off the stage during his show in Manchester, England, on Sunday after some fans ignored his request to stop screaming as he was trying to talk to the crowd between songs.

Bieber told the crowd that he wanted to be able to say something and the screaming had to stop. When the screaming continued, a frustrated Bieber dropped the microphone as he left the stage.

The singer returned several moments later and told the crowd he'd stop talking and just do his musical set, because, he said, "Manchester just can't handle it."
