Justin Bieber is the youngest male soloist to have a number one album since Little Stevie Wonder in 1963. And now, the 16-year-old singing sensation has taken over the Internet.
In addition to dominating Google Trends for most of the year, Bieber is the focus of a new Web prank called You Got Biebered
, which has become the new Rickroll
. Even more impressively, the fresh-faced pop idol is the impetus for the photo blog Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber
-- which drives home the point that the Canadian singer has a look that is also favored by a certain segment of the Sapphic community.
"People have told me that I look like Justin Bieber," says the latter site's creator, Danielle Owens-Reid, who is a lesbian. "And then I realized it's not just me, but it's an entire sector of our community who look a bit like teenage hip-hop boys."
Owens-Reid hopes her muse has seen her site, which has real pictures of Bieber interspersed among photos of his lesbian doppelgangers. "He's a pretty funny kid," she tells Asylum. "So I think he'd like it."
We already know Bieber is aware of "You got Biebered," because he took to his Twitter account last week to acknowledge the annoying phenomenon
But even if the "One Time" singer never tweets about Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber, the site is still a success, as it is legitimately difficult to tell the difference between Bieber and the lesbians (aka Biebians) who look like him. "It's pretty funny how often people are confused," Owens-Reid tells us.
Keep reading to see if you can tell the difference between photos of Bieber and photos of lesbians who just look like him. The answer key is at the bottom.
