Justin Bieber may claim to only need a beauty and a beat  but he also needs a club to let him in, too.

The pop singer is currently performing in Manchester on the UK leg of his tour, and he was turned away from a nightclub for odd reasons, according to the Metro.

Word has it that Sankeys dance club has an edgy reputation that they didn't want Justin's appearance to tarnish.

The club took to Twitter to confirm that they had indeed turned away Justin, but their reason for rejecting him appears to be a joke.

The club's Twitter message reads: 

Weird, right? And here we thought a club owner would love to be able to say that Bieber partied at their establishment.

Then again, the club probably got a lot more publicity from spurning Bieber than they would have for just letting him in.
