Ottawa, Canada. In news just emerging, or should that be breaking news occurring, teen idol Justin Bieber has announced that he will represent Canada at the Olympic Games in London in just over three weeks. The seventeen year old singer has agreed to an offer from the Canadian Basketball Federation to take his place in their Olympic men's basketball side.
Despite the fact that Bieber stands only just over 5 foot five inches in the old money, the basketball fraternity are very excited about the teenage warbler exploring a new facet of his personality. Bieber himself is extremely "pumped" about the prospect of representing the red maple leaf at the London Olympiad.
The decision has not been without controversy. Other celebrities have taken to Facebook and Twitter to express their annoyance at the scene stealing kid and his reasons for jumping on the Olympic bandwagon. Madonna slammed Justin for "being a spoilt little brat looking for attention" while Britney Spears said on her Twitter page "I hate all teenagers especially Bieber".
