British actress Nadine Mulkerrin blasted the singer on Twitter after he requested the audience "stay as quiet as possible" while he was performing.

Justin Bieber was booed by fans as he asked them to stop talking during his concert in Manchester, England, on Thursday night (21Oct16).

The 22-year-old singer hit headlines on Monday night (17Oct16) when he asked the crowd in Birmingham to stop screaming, but took things a new level on Thursday when he requested silence as he addressed the audience.

Before performing his penultimate song of the evening, Justin told his screaming fans that he had called his tour the Purpose World Tour "because everyone in here has a purpose", but stopped when he realised that the audience were chatting and not listening to him.

"I just thought I could have a moment to say something. I can cut the bulls**t if you want," he said at that point. "I’m trying to engage but if you guys don’t want to I’ll play the music."

According to the Manchester Evening News, Justin's face "twitched with annoyance" as he made the request.

But his remarks didn't go down very well with the crowd, who quickly started booing.

Others took to social media to express their frustration at Justin's behaviour, with British actress Nadine Mulkerrin among those commenting.

"We love your music but you are RUDE!!!!!!!!" she wrote.

Another fan tweeted: "Remember when Justin actually liked his job then Manchester ruined it?"

Earlier in the evening, Justin had once again asked the crowd to pipe down on their screaming as he geared up to perform two ballads, telling them: "Try and stay as quiet as possible. You can scream as much as you want afterwards but while I'm singing try and stay quiet."

Justin's comments during his concert come after he announced the end of his VIP meet and greet sessions with fans earlier this year (16).

Revealing his decision, the Love Yourself singer posted on Instagram: "Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression."
