The City of New York has already caught Bieber fever by declaring yesterday (June 19) Justin Bieber Appreciation Day, so it’s no surprise the ladies of The View were completely smitten with the pop star during his appearance on the daytime talk show. Also enraptured by the 18-year-old was the studio audience, a sea of young girls swaying back and forth as Bieb delivered an acoustic performance of his Believe track “Die In Your Arms”.

The ladies inquire about Bieber’s rabid fan base and the violent scenarios, chases and riots that seem to flock any public appearance he makes. “I don’t get afraid, because at the end of the day I know my fans aren’t trying to hurt me,” he says.
Barbara Walters then tells the singer he doesn’t want to ask him anything personal, and immediately asks if he’s in love. Justin, ever the professional question evader, is having none of that. “Being young, I’m still learning about love and what love is,” he says, successfully avoiding having to talk about his girlfriend Selena Gomez. Well done, young Bieber.
