Just in case you haven't been able to find out anything about Justin Bieber because of all the false syphilis rumors all over the internet, the is good news for his fans.
But first the rumor, because that was what it turned out to be.
"It seems like anyone can start a rumor on the internet, someone else picks it up and away it goes", stated Bieber's agent. "Who knows how it started? Who knows who started the Miley pregnancy thing a couple years ago? It's one of today's problems for people in the spotlight. I'll state it clearly: Justin does not have syphilis!"
Meanwhile, there is good news for his fans if you can get the word out. Bieber may have some small parts in The Vampire Diaries TV series this coming year.
Justin, the 16-year-old wonder who began his career by placing his songs on Youtube, has had two big singles and a five-million-selling album.
After hearing his song "Night Is The Time" recently, one of the promoters for the TV Vampire series thought that it would fit in great in a series of planned episodes. He immediately got in touch with Bieber's agent and was on the telephone for a couple of hours as the agent was interested in getting Bieber some US TV prime time.
Nothing has been settled as far as we know but it certainly sounds promising.
As far as the Syphilis rumor, this reporter thinks it may have came from Bieber's agent himself. Look at all the free publicity Miley got with the pregnancy rumor. Look how fast this one has made the rounds.
In show business, remember, there is NO bad publicity.
