Justin Bieber has a close encounter with an iPhone

Justin Bieber got up close and personal to some hardware this week. He was awarded Diamond Certification for "Baby" on Thursday, but slightly earlier in the week, he got very close -- or his genitals did, anyway -- to an iPhone.

Originally released on March 23, 2010, "Baby" is the Gold and Platinum Program’s foremost digital single ever, according to the RIAA. The Digital Single Award is a new certification, as of May 2013. It includes sales and online streams.

The second piece of hardware that Bieber got close to this week was an iPhone. During his Tuesday night concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., a fan tossed an iPhone on stage. Ironically, it came as Bieber was asking fans to refrain from tossing hard objects onstage.

Bieber, rather than throwing the device back, reacted by putting the Apple smartphone down his pants. You can see the incident in the embedded video below. Bieber can also be seen tossing the device back into the audience. We are sure the recipient will never clean the device.

It was unclear if the device was an iPhone 4, 4S or 5.
