Bieber has publicly asked his fans to calm down, but will they listen? 67% of Predicto members think that the boy wonder will cause another stampede before July.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 29, 2010 -
Pop stars have sent teen girls into euphoria since the days of Beatlemania. But even John, Paul, George and Ringo might have been amazed by the obsessive fandom that Justin Bieber incites. Snackable Media's popular Predicto Mobile community has been text messaging votes and comments on a variety of topics concerning the pint-sized phenom, from the teen's chances at breaking into Hollywood to the likelihood that he'll cause another riot.
Wherever Justin Bieber goes, pandemonium seems to follow. First discovered on YouTube, the 16-year-old came to mainstream attention last year when the cancellation of a scheduled mall performance caused disappointed fans to rampage, requiring police to break up the crowds. More recently, "Bieber Fever" erupted at a New Zealand airport this week, as the 500 teenage girls waiting to greet him caused so much chaos that even his mother was knocked down in the melee.
Bieber has publicly asked his fans to calm down, but will they listen? 67% of Predicto members think that the boy wonder will cause another stampede before July. One commenter agrees with her idol: "Girls seriously need to calm down. I like him but I'm going to his concert and I'm scared that I won't live through it!" While the Bieb's power to invoke such passion has gained renown, his music career has snowballed as well. The Predicto Mobile community correctly predicted that his "My World" album would debut higher on the Billboard charts than an anticipated new album from rap pioneer Snoop Dogg, released the same week.
Having conquered the music world and consumed many little girls' hearts, what's next for Bieber? The teen star is rumored to be in consideration to take over Kevin Bacon's iconic role in a remake of the classic '80s film Footloose. Bieber showed a talent for acting during his "hot for teacher" skit on Saturday Night Live, but the majority of Predicto members have a more savvy reason the pixie-haired star should snag the role. As one Predicto member astutely notes, "He's the number one singer right now and since he's so famous, directors know the movie will be a hit if he's the star of the movie."
Whichever direction Justin Bieber chooses to take his career, he seems destined for a Justin Timberlake-inspired transition from teen idol to adult superstar. And if that fantasy doesn't play out as planned? Well, there'll always be a place for him on YouTube.
