Justin Bieber told reporters yesterday that he knew he was going to be kidded a lot but that was OK.
"Like most kids I had this childhood friend that only I could see and his name was Tidy Little!"
This brought a hearty laugh from the crowd but when Bieber asked the crowd if they had a special friend too, he saw several hands go up.
"Tiny went everywhere with me. I'd talk to him and he would nod and I'd go and do something silly but Tiddy and me would laugh for days about it. Even if I get a whipping later."
Did he go to school with you, he was asked.
"No. He stayed around the house. Sometimes he'd tell me some mean jokes to play at school but he stayed away. Wonder where we come up with these things?"
"Well, the reason we asked is that there was an old man in this area named Tidy Little and he was always getting kids in trouble", stated one person in the crowd of reporters.
"You mean he was real?"
"Until he died a couple of years ago. I'm glad the old Fart's gone. He got more kids in trouble."
"Don't you believe them, Justin."
"Who are you talking to now, Bieber? There's nobody over there."
