8 Crazy Things Justin Bieber Fans Do For Attention
Three years of Bieber fever, and no end in sight.
Teen heart throb Justin Bieber was a literal overnight sensation, and three years after his debut, the fans are still crazy about him
Recently a St. Louis girl starred in a YouTube video trying to get Justin’s attention in time for his October concert date at the Scott Trade Center. Lauren Lee at least has a worthy goal—she wants the singer to visit SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center where she was treated for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. How wild is Lauren for her favorite singer? She toured St. Louis landmarks with a giant squirrel. (The squirrel, we should note, is our own St. Louis rally squirrel, who's a big fan of Cardinal Glennon these days.)
What wild and crazy things have fans done to show their love of JB? Patch dug up the following results.
Make a stalker video: Bieber had a contest in June to launch his new “Girlfriend” perfume. He asked fans to make a Girlfriend video to the tune of his hit, “Boyfriend.” Laina Walker didn’t win , but she took the internet by storm with her crazy girlfriend video.
Miss prom: Back in 2010 two Kansas City high school girls skipped their own prom to watch Justin Bieber sing on the Today show. In New York. They even got their parents to drive them on the 17 hour car trip.
Get a tattoo: Though most of Bieber’s fans are too young to get a tattoo, this grown man got JB’s face inked on his thigh. We’re not sure what’s weirder, getting Bieber's face tattooed on your body, or a adult male Bieber fan.
Risk eye injury: ABC reports that getting a Justin Bieber inspired hair cut can give a young boy lazy eye. Why? Keeping one eye covered by hair constantly can weaken your vision.
Occupy the TwitterSphere: Mashable discovered that Bieber’s fans require entire racks of servers to keep up them. Why? He has over 25 million rabid followers on Twitter. Back in 2010 he took up 3% of Twitter’s server space. He now has five times the followers. The next time you see a Fail Whale on Twitter, blame Bieber, he probably just tweeted his lunch.
Get a Bieber Fever license plate: No, not for bike. For your car. Yes, there’s an adult (another guy, what’s with that) who shelled out $265 for personalize plates.
Use a Bieber toothbrush: There’s are tons of Bieber Fever merchandise out there, but this one takes the cake. It’s an electric toothbrush that plays two minutes of Justin Bieber music --the recommended amount of time to brush your teeth well. You can pick up your own at Walgreens.
