It’s hard to believe that one can be driven close to breakdown over the chance of seeing another human being in the flesh. Such is the power of Justin Bieber. Please witness this local 15-year-old completely losing it. They call this “Bieber Fever.”
We have no words. Scientology either screws people up for life, or just attracts weirdos from the start. Nothing else can explain this strange rap featuring top members of the cult including a prominent spokesperson, and Cruise’s church-approved ex-squeeze.
