Won't update UILabel with data from Parse Database right away


Using the code below, the firstnameLabel (UILabel) will not update to the given data right away, i need to stop the app in xcode and run it again, to show the data in the UILabel. What can I do to update the UILabel right when the viewcontroller becomes visible? here is my code:

var currentUser = PFUser.currentUser()
        if currentUser != nil {

            var query = PFQuery(className:"_User")
            query.getObjectInBackgroundWithId(currentUser.objectId) {
                (bruger: PFObject!, error: NSError!) -> Void in
                if error == nil && bruger != nil {
                        var firstName: String = bruger["firstname"] as String
                        self.usernameLabel.text = firstName
                } else {

        } else {
            self.performSegueWithIdentifier("goto_login", sender: self)
