Spotted: Justin Bieber touches down in Dubai

UAE Beliebers, take note: it looks like Justin Bieber was in Dubai yesterday for a flying visit

Justin Bieber made a flying visit to Dubai this week, stopping over for a massage.

The 23-year-old pop star was pictured at Dubai International Airport Hotel's spa, in a photo shared yesterday. Before that, he was spotted on a snowboarding trip in Utah - so we wonder where he is headed to.

Bieber is clearly a fan of Dubai, having performed two concerts here: once in May 2017 and once in 2013 (he was, infamously, more than two hours late for the latter; but was on time and impressed crowds last year).

In May last year Bieber was on a week-long jaunt in the emirate - performing at two sell-out concerts - and was spotted at Dubai super club Zero Gravity (multiple times), riding a camel on a desert safari (classic) and playing football at the Habtoor Grand Hotel.

It is unclear whether Bieber was simply transiting through Dubai, or if he has stopped and is in the Emirates. That said, the fact he opted for a massage at the airport hotel means it's likely he was just passing through.

But not to worry, his fans are eagle-eyed, and so we will let you know if he does in fact pop-up in the UAE again soon.
