image for Justin Bieber Sparks Double-Dip Recession Fears

Economists looked on in horror yesterday as stock markets plunged after diminutive pop sensation Justin Bieber admitted: "I won't be a pop star forever."

Experts fear that his admission will create such havoc in the markets that the world's economy will face that much-feared phenomenon, the double-dip recession.

Our economics editor, Oliver Pillbox, says: "I've been taking the readings in the City and around the markets and there's real fear out there.

"No-one has considered this issue before. They see Justin's admission as a real problem for global economies - this is something that has never happened before.

"It's completely unprecedented. When was the last time that a pop star created such wealth - for himself and industry - before disappearing from the scene?

"He's going to create a real gap and experts can't see what will fill it."
