The 'Baby' hitmaker has his spokesperson clearing up the air over the fake fan contest on what country he should take for next tour by writing a response that says, 'This is not a legitimate contest.'
will definitely not be heading to North Korea anytime soon. Having been a subject of another Internet joke that made the secretive communist nation as his next tour destination, the 16-year-old pop sensation has his spokesperson clearing up the air over the faux report and insisted it was a complete hoax.

Slamming down the recent circulating hoax, his representative has send a clarification e-mail to MTV News. In the written message, the spokesperson pointed out that the contest itself was not sanctioned by the "Baby" hitmaker or anyone in his camp. "It was a spoof site," the rep stated before adding, "This is not a legitimate contest."

BBC News earlier reported that users at imageboard website 4Chan have hacked into "Justin Bieber My World" contest and asked fans to vote which country Justin should take his tour to next. In less than two days, North Korea won the vote of 659,141 users leading Israel which was second in the chart with 624,803 votes.

Justin has since become a subject of another prank. MTV reported that on early Wednesday morning, July 7, the term "Justin Bieber Hates Korea" has been made the most-searched term on Google Trends by pranksters.

In another news, Justin has been said to have declared his desire to stay pure. His mother Pattie Mallette told E! News of the matter as part of Justin's TV special, "Justin Bieber: My World", which premiered July 7. "He has expressed his desire to stay pure and honor women and treat women with respect, hopefully that stays that way," so she claimed.
