Justin Bieber was scolded by a Qantas Airlines flight attendant on Sunday for getting out of his seat as the plane taxied to the runway in preparation for takeoff.
According to The Telegraph in Australia, the 17-year-old singer and a bodyguard left their seats in business class to chat with members of his entourage in coach as the plane readied for a flight from Sydney to Melbourne. The seatbelt sign was switched on at the time.
The cabin crew reportedly ordered the pair back to their seats, with Australia's SkyNews reporting that a flight attendant told Bieber that his behavior "was a security risk and that he had been acting like a child and would therefore be treated like one."
Bieber was heading to Melbourne for the next leg of his "My Worlds" tour.
