Canadian pop-R&B singer and actor Justin Bieber is recovering in hospital this evening after being involved in an incident at a friend's home when a red hot poker was shoved up his arse.
Bieber was making last minute preparations for his 17th birthday party next week, and was experimenting with some new and novel party games he had been told about by Hollywood movie legend Jack Nicholson.
It appears that the young singer may have become confused about the rules of the game, and inserted the hot rod into his back passage, where it melded itself to his cackpipe, and refused to budge.
Doctors in Ontario were able to remove the poker after it had cooled down, and say they are confident that there will be no long-term damage to his rectal cavity, but that he may sing a couple of octaves higher in the future.
Apologies to those readers who were expecting a car accident-type story.
