Bieber Not Playing N. Korea

Justin Bieber has become the victim of an Internet hoax, according to Universal Music Group.

The imageboard website 4chan hijacked a survey to determine which country the Canadian teen singer should bring his concert tour next.

4chan urged viewers to cast their votes for North Korea. As a result 650,000 votes were tallied for the reclusive communist country, making it the winner by a landslide.

UMG denied that it had anything to do with the poll after it went viral, spreading to Facebook and Twitter, and media started calling the record company. 4chan has a history of Internet pranks.
