Justin Bieber was on Today to perform some music for the folks in Rockefeller Plaza, but in an unplanned moment started complaining on-mic about a camera he felt was too close to the stage during his performance of What Do You Mean.

As Matt Lauer was tossing to commercial, the Biebs started bellyaching: "Next time I won’t dance, because the camera’s right here the whole time. Might as well not even dance. So what do I do this for…”

The shot then went to the commercial.

When they came back from the ad break, no mention of the outburst was made.

That makes sense: This would really get in the way of Justin’s new brand of humble, chilled-out nice guy. Never fear though: he got back on message later in the show.

Tamron Hall said, "I love that they say you’re back - you never left. You’re Justin Bieber.”

Bieber replied, "Well, I didn’t really leave, but I took some time to just do some soul-searching for sure."
