Justin Bieber was bombarded by crowds of screaming fans this morning as he appeared on GMTV.
Outside the studio, hoards of ecstatic girls went bonkers for the Canadian teen heartthrob, who was on the show to talk about his new single, Baby.
News that the 16-year-old singer was to appear on GMTV caused a Twitter frenzy – with his early morning chat becoming one of the most talked about topics on the international micro-blogging site.
The buzz around Bieber meant that – at its peak – around one in 200 Tweets sent worldwide referenced his interview on the breakfast TV show.
Talking to GMTV, the singer promised to perform for his UK fans later this year. He said: “We’re going to be doing some shows here in the UK later this year, which I’m looking forward to.”
The popstar didn’t rule out having relationships with his fans either. Asked if he’d ever date a fan, he replied: “I think that it just depends – it depends what the situation is. I think that I’m not going to limit myself.”
