Justin Beiber Goes To North Korea?

If only it were true....

Justin Bieber is apparently the subject of a new Internet prank, which now has the singer facing a tour of North Korea. Bieber held a contest on his website encouraging fans to vote for where the next stop on his "My World" tour should be, with no restrictions on which countries could be voted for. The contest ended up with more than half a million votes to send the 16-year-old teen icon to the communist nation.

4chan, an imageboard website known for Internet pranks, encouraged people to vote for North Korea as the country Bieber should tour next. The contest, which ended Wednesday, saw North Korea move from 24th to first place in less than two days, putting it several thousand votes ahead of Israel.
Thank you 4chan. Thank you.
