'Fans' send Justin Bieber to North Korea

Monday July 5, 2010

Young crooner Justin Bieber seems to be the target of an internet joke which aims to send the Canadian singer on a tour of North Korea.

Visitors to Justin’s My World Tour webpage were asked to vote on the next country they want him to play in and a host of 'fans' chose North Korea as their favourite destination.

The prank has picked up speed in recent days with votes for the secretive communist nation numbering nearly half a million.

The nearest contender is Israel, which still lies several thousand votes behind.

Should the star end up going to the Asian country, he may find it difficult to get an entry visa given that North Korean leaders do not look favourably on western music.
