Why is Justin Bieber suddenly huge this week? He's all over the Twitter trending topics. There are probably thousands of little boys who are just as cute and talented, but he's getting all this attention!

Like oh my god I KNOW, RIGHT? Why the sudden spike in Justin Bieber mania? Well, can't be the fact that the 15-year-old Internet sensation was principal for a day at that incredibly lucky school in Covina, Calif.; that's old news. And it can't be that he's huge among the juice-box crowd; that's old news. And it can't be his sweet personality; the hair-flipping singer is about as humble and polite as Kanye West.
So what can possibly...ah. Here we go. Mystery solved...
News just came over the transom that the kid is going to appear on Saturday Night Live on April 10 as musical guest.
Per MTV, Bieber will be one of the youngest musical guests ever to grace the SNL musical stage, next to HansenSilverchair and the Jonas Brothers. Bieber is already a huge Internet sensation; he was discovered via YouTube and is a regular on the iTunes top 10; he also scored four top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 before his album even came out.
So for fans, the SNL thing is massive. The kids are screaming with ecstasy, just screaming.
So there's that.
But it's not the only factor making Bieber explode all over our Twitter accounts. Do not underestimate the power of those profoundly annoying quizzes.
At this hour, very real Twitter quizzes regarding Bieber include:
  • How Much Do You Have in Common With Justin Bieber
  • Who Is Better for You, Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas or Robert Pattinson
  • Justin Bieber Wants to Go All The Way, What Do You Do
  • What Happens If You Are at a Justin Bieber Meet and Greet
  • and my personal favorite, What Would Happen If Justin Bieber's Mom Marries Your Dad
Still, not every Twitter mention for Bieber is positive at this hour. He's also being paired quite often with another hot trending topic: #urwack.


According to the most top tweeted brands on Twitter, Justin tops all other brands. He's even bigger than the Olympics! (omg, now he's a brand!)

French fans are the best. I love this video.


Teen sensation JUSTIN BIEBER was forced to cut short an in-store appearance in Paris, France on Monday (22Feb10) after thousands of fans descended on the venue.

The 15 year old was appearing at a shop in the French capital, but authorities weren't expecting such a big crowd and told Bieber to leave the venue so they could control the waiting fans.

In a post on his Twitter.com blog, the singer writes, "Paris is crazy! Had some interviews this morning with mags (magazines) and radio. Got to practice my French a little. But then the in-store (appearance)... there were thousands of kids at the in-store and the police were not expecting it. They reorganised the crowd and we got it going but after a little while the police stopped it and came in and said it was over and I had to leave. Sorry to any of the kids I didn't get to meet

"I love all of you for your support. To start my trip in Paris like this already, the love and the energy is amazing. Thank you so much."

It's not the first time Bieber's popularity has caused problems - in November (09) he was threatened with arrest if he failed to send an internet message to fans urging them to go home after a signing in New York descended into chaos.




After collaborating with rapperLudacris and joining forces with reggae fusion singer/MC Sean Kingston, Justin Bieber is now longing to make a duet with Lil Wayne. "I want to work with LilWayne...once he gets out of jail," he told E! News during an event at Northview High School in Covina, California.

There is chance that Justin's duet wish could come true as Weezy himself has given a shoutout to the young Canadian pop sensation during a Ustream session on Young Money's artist Lil Twist's site. The rap mogul apparently has recognized that Justin fever already swept the country and he could be the next big thing in music industry.

Justin Bieber is preparing to release a new album titled "My World 2.0" in the U.S. on March 23. He recently tweeted about what to expect from the upcoming release, writing on the micro-blogging site "EXCLUSIVE NEWS ON MY WORLD 2.0- so happy with the songs the 2.0 part wont have 7 more new songs..it will have 10 MORE NEW SONGS!! LETS GO!" Additionally, he will appear in "Saturday Night Live" on April 10, serving as a musical guest and wishing to take part in one of the digital shorts.
