Bieber To Work For (Canned) Food

Hey kids! Want teen star Justin Bieber to perform at your school? Just collect some canned food. Lots of canned food.

Like Long Beach Middle School in Lido Beach, N.Y., which beat out 149 other New York metro-area schools by snagging more than 27,000 pounds of food. As a reward Bieber will perform for students at the school sometime in February, according to school officials.

Officials also said the school would be in lock-down mode during the performance. Talk about a captivated audience.

On the other hand, school officials are just being cautious, remembering last November when a promo appearance at a Long Island shopping mall got a little out of hand.

Bieber was signing copies of his debut album, My World, when a crowd of 3,000 young girls and adults started shoving and pushing, resulting in five people going to local hospitals for minor injuries.
