Headlining a mega-successful world tour has got to be hard work, but we’d figure that a strapping 19-year-old like Justin Bieber would still be able to muster the strength to, you know, walk on his own. Not so, it seems, judging from a new photo of the Biebs being carried upon the broad shoulders of his burly bodyguards. Carried where? Well, up the Great Wall of China, of course.

Our response to this latest Bieber stunt is pretty much summed up by the guy in the hat pictured at the top of the photo looking down on Biebs. His hand over his mouth, he looks on in equal parts horror and fascination as Justin sits upon his bodyguards and ascends up the Wall.

Let’s hope this was just Justin fooling around and not him literally thinking he’s royalty. (Sorry to tell you, Biebs, but Prince of Pop is just a nickname.)

Justin will be in China for the rest of the week with concerts scheduled in the Chinese cities of Dalian and Shanghai. Then he’s on to Japan for an October 7 show. Let’s hope the Biebs’s doesn’t decide he’d like to visit Mount Fuji.
