Justin Bieber loves to pull pranks, but it looks like the joke's on him this time around.
The 16-year-old pop star recently launched an online contest in which fans could vote for the next destination on his 'My World' tour, but Internet pranksters rigged the voting, making North Korea the winning location.
According to MSNBC, a popular message board was responsible for the prank, which raked in nearly 660,000 votes for the communist nation and bumped it from No. 24 to the No. 1 spot. Israel came in at No. 2 with about 35,000 less votes, but the country's ranking is also believed to be a result of insincere voting.
This isn't the first time the Canadian singer has been the target of an Internet scheme -- a programmer recently created the Shaved Bieber tool, which blocked all mentions and photos of the pop star from users' Internet browsers.
Justin hasn't made any comments about the closed contest or the fact that North Korea won, so it will be interesting to see what happens. The chances of him actually playing in the eastern country are slim as dictator Kim Jong Il has reportedly "banned most other Western music from the country and imposes strict travel regulations."
Will his camp reset the voting and try again? Maybe they'll find another way to get fans to chime in on where they want the pop star to perform. We'll just have to wait and see. %Poll-49212%
