You may have heard that there’s a plot to send a certain Canadian musician to North Korea. I don’t say his name on Twitter for fear of activating the Trend Machine, but there’s a contest going on where fans and anti-fans alike are voting to see which country wants him the most. Voting probably will have ended by the time you read this, but it’s very likely that North Korea will take first place, followed by Israel and Poland.
Let’s back up for a minute. North Korea? Is Kim Jong-Il a fan?
Neither he nor Bieber could be reached for comments, but a caption in this BBC article sums it up best: “It is not known if Kim Jong-il is a fan of Justin Bieber’s music.” Kim does love the Internet, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he has stumbled upon Bieber at some point.
Granted, this poll probably isn’t even official, though some sources have been touting it as such. If Bieber does tour the country, it’ll probably be for the select few government officials, though. The regular people wouldn’t know what to do when he starts singing, and for once that’s a good thing.
