Justin Bieber to tour North Korea?

Postby parthianbow » Mon July 5th, 2010, 2:47 pm

I wouldn't know a Justin Bieber song if it came up and introduced itself to me, but I had to smile at this article from the BBC website. It reminded me of the viral response to the 'Best Song in the World' on the Beeb 2 years ago, when the nationalistic anthem 'A Nation Once Again' by the Wolfe Tones was 'voted' No. 1 thanks to the Irish, and other jokers!

I'm still not quite sure who the heck he is and where the heck he came from!

Nah, Timberlake I like, and he has more talent in his little finger then this 16 year old has in his whole body, my opinion.

Timberlake can also act, he won an Emmy for his stint on SNL, there was a great skit where he played his own ancestor coming to America and talked about he would some day have a descendant who would bring "Sexy Back" and one of the people who he was talking to asked where it (the sexy) went. It was hilarious! I'm sure you could find it on YouTube.

And who could forget "D*ck In A Box"! OMG!

Neutral on Bieber. Don't care for Timberlake.

Funny article! Maybe they should let him in and then blame the S. Korean sub sinking on his terrible music? :D

Actually, I've never heard his music, so I shouldn't label it as "terrible". Something about that pic of him in the beeb article made me suspect it would be so, though... ;)

Have just read that this child is going to write his memoirs - at 16! Suppose they want to catch his fans before they move on to the Next Big Thing.
