These girls will laugh at themselves when they grow up. 18 year-old Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber is the reason of world hysteria. ‘Oh my God, I adore him. I dream about him every night.’ We’re the Bellebers: Three teenagers waited hours to catch a sight of their idol, now he’s gone they are inconsolable. ‘No! I love him more. He’s my inspiration. He’s my idol. I love everything about him — apart from his girlfriend.’ Every 20 minutes or so, 300 girls jump up and down, pull at their hair, sob and let out hysterical, traffic-stopping screams. ‘Is it him? Is it Justin? Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God! I love you so much!’ And then — yet another false alarm — they sit down again and get back to bickering about who loves Justin Bieber the most.
Traffic comes to a standstill as young girls spill into the road as Bieber heads off. Justin Bieber leaves his London hotel on the way to the airport, as his adoring fans scramble for a glimpse. They have no shelter, no sleeping bags (‘We didn’t think to bring one’), no proper food (they’ve been living on Red Bull and Big Macs), but all sport bulging make-up bags.
Nearly all of these young girls should be at school. In fact, many are wearing their uniforms.
‘We haven’t been to college for four days,’ says Paige, 16. ‘But at the moment Justin Bieber’s more important than my GCSEs. My parents think I’m crazy but they don’t understand how much we love him.’
He has nearly 21 million Twitter followers (recent tweets include ‘who am i? the luckiest guy on the planet. im a fighter for what i believe in but i have millions next to me. Thankyou’) and gains a new follower every second.
Bieber has said he is not interested in obtaining United States citizenship, praising Canada as being “the best country in the world”, citing its health care system as an example.
11-year-old Caroline Gonzalez was “mayor for a day” in Forney, Texas. Her first order of business: Name a street after her idol, Justin Bieber. Why? “Because I really like Justin Bieber,” Gonzalez told E! News. “I like his music and I like him. And I thought, why not have a street in my hometown named after my favorite singer?”
