Justin Bieber and Li'l Kim?

Hard to say who loves mop-top teen singer Justin Bieber more–squealing little girls or the prank-playing practitioners of cultural anarchy on the Web. Over the weekend, hackers took advantage of a YouTube vulnerability (since fixed) to redirect Bieber-page visitors to porn sites or pop up a message suggesting the lad had expired. Now the Web wags are in the process of stuffing the ballot box in a vote on where Beiber should bring his world tour. Israel was leading the contest until the viral assault; now, if the voters have their way, Bieber will take the stage in front of a baffled audience in North Korea. Justin Bieber and Kim Jong Il–now there’s a photo op.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
