Nice view: 16-year-old Justin Bieber gets an eyeful while watching the New York Knicks cheerleaders at Madison Square Garden last night
He's used to the screams of adoring teens, but Justin Bieber didn't quite get the same reception at the New York Knicks game.
The pop star Justin Bieber was loudly booed by some basketball fans at Wednesday night’s game at Madison Square Garden.
The crowd erupted when the camera panned to the Oh Baby singer during a time-out - but the squeals of the few young female fans were almost drowned out by the rest of the crowd, who were clearly outside his usual target market.
One commentator noted: 'Why would you boo the kid?'
To which is colleague replied: 'The boos are from the guys, the cheers are from the girls.'
It was not the end of Bieber's woes - the singer's bodyguard, Kenneth Hamilton, was arrested the same night after an alleged altercation with photographer Jason Nicholas, who was trying to take a picture of the star.
Hamilton is accused of pushing Nicholas up against a parked SUV in New York back in November, according to a police report, and the photographer claims he as since suffered lower-back pain.
Bieber dashed to Madison Square Garden after attending the premiere of his new fly-on-the-wall documentary, Never Say Never.

He was approached by director Spike Lee, who had also attended Justine's premiere with his son Jackson..
The popular youngster also chatted to actor Chris Rock at the game, which saw the Knicks lose to the Dallas Mavericks 113-97.
Never Say Never, which follows the teen star on his 2010 concert tour and features appearances by Usher, Miley Cyrus, Boys II Men, Sean Kingston and Jaden Smith, is released in the UK on February 18.
