But is it declawed? Justin Bieber flashes a sense of humor with April Fool's joke

OMG Bieber vs. OMG Cat from Justin Bieber

Is it wrong that some of us here at Pop & Hiss are rooting for the cat? 

Teen star of the moment Justin Bieber has taken a page from the Taylor Swift book of starmaking, using April 1 to show off a sense of humor. Sketch comedy site FunnyorDie.com received a makeover today aimed straight at the heart of America's tween population. Renamed BieberorDie, there's a host of outrageous videos on the site, all of them far more entertaining than much of "My World 2.0," although such opinion belongs solely to this writer, as Pop & Hiss has previously caught some Bieber fever

In the April Fool's Day manifesto, Bieber explains his reckless attitude: "I talk loudly in libraries, and I swim directly after I eat. I don't care." If only his choruses were so much fun.
