Ah, the Justin Bieber fan sites. They're up; they're down; they're up again. But one of them, Dirty Bieber Secrets, JB's x-rated fantasy fan site, has been removed by Tumblr, and it won't be back for quite a while.
Recently, some seriously committed beliebers started a unique Justin Bieber website called Dirty Bieber Secrets. The x-rated fan site was created as an open forum for Bieber fans over the age of 18 who wanted to post their innermost sexual fantasies about JB. They could also read the fevered fantasies of others. Apparently, the site has now been declared illegal "due to the fact that Justin is 17 and the posts about him were too graphic and were considered a Child Pornography, therefore illegal." Oh well, the law is the law and must be obeyed.
Although Dirty Bieber Secrets can be resurrected after March 1, 2012 when Justin Bieber turns 18, the online response to the site's demolition has been oddly overwhelmingly positive. Whether this is simply typical of our neo-puritanical society or the result of public outrage at the supposed "sullying" of a "positive" teen role model's pristine image is a matter of conjecture. The real question is: Who complained to Tumblr to remove the site? Younger beliebers? Their parents? Random prudes patrolling the Internet? The Parents' Television Council? The Teen Dream's parents? Or was it JB himselfÂ—perhaps with a little encouragement from his girlfriend, Selena Gomez?
Probably, it was a combination of all of the above. But a recent post on a Justin Bieber fan site suggests the last possibility may be the most likely one.
"The site was not removed due to child pornography," wrote someone called Azaria, "it was removed because Justin Bieber's team wanted it taken down. You can freely write about anyone and anything at any age you want, its not illegal."
And even more revealing post from someone calling herself, Un ano sin lluvia, claimed responsibility for the site's removal:
"I am the one that reported it and got it taken down! ? your welcome."
Un ano sin lluvia is Spanish for "a year without rain." That was the title of one of Selena Gomez's hit albums. Connect the dots.
Of course, it's impossible to determine whether the message was posted by someone connected to the former Disney starlet. However, it is doubtful that the Biebs would be inordinately upset by the site since he has personally posted a plethora of sexually suggestive messages and photos of his ownÂ—although none were patently pornographic. So it could very well have been Selena Gomez' influence. Alas, the world will probably never know.
Oh well, the site is gone. For now. Those who found it offensive can rejoice. Horny beliebers must bide their time until next year.
