Justin Bieber has no plans to perform in North Korea any time soon – an online contest for fans to choose a location for his next concert was fake, according to his spokesperson.
The teen sensation was said to be considering a trip to North Korea following an internet survey which invited fans to pick countries for the 16 year old to visit.

Almost half a million pranksters were said to have flooded the polling site to cast their vote, urging Bieber to hold a concert in Asia.

But Bieber’s publicist has brushed aside the story, insisting fans will not be picking the singer’s next tour destination.

The rep tells MTV.com, “It was a spoof site. This is not a legitimate contest.”
