Most of us like a good mystery now and again and it seems the tween and teen fans of pop superstar Justin Bieber are no different. Two tweets by Bieber in the late afternoon of Feb. 8 provided fodder for a bit of one, though it was easily enough solved.
And solved twice.
This tweet started fans wondering: "back in the studio tonight. who with this time??? hmmmm." Last count he had 17,137,319 followers on Twitter and many got curious. The main reason for that is he's spending a lot of time in the studio - he just returned to L.A. from recording in Miami - with various artist putting together his upcoming album 'Believe'.
While in Miami he was working with Lil Wayne and Justin Timberlake and, as there was with his recent Christmas album 'Under the Mistletoe' there's lots of speculation amongst fans about who next is going to appear on the record with him. One fan tweeted after reading the tweet above that Bieber was "such a tease."
Bieber: Big Bro from Canada
Then along came this tweet: "you really wanna know who im going into the studio with tonight?? #bigbro #CANADA" That got some followers talking about Drake, who is also from Canada, older, bigger (at least taller), is a close friend of Bieber's and an artist you might expect to record with him. And it turns out it was Drake that Bieber was tweeting about, that confirmed by manager Scooter Braun.
But likely not just Drake.
Because he may have also been slyly tweeting about his sister and brother, Jazzy, born in 2008, and Jaxon, born a year later, who have the same father, Jeremy Bieber. That guess comes partly from the fact that Bieber has referred to himself as their Big Bro many times before - because he is their Big Bro - and because there was a third tweet, or really a first one, on the very same afternoon, but before the two reproduced above.
This one read: "playing with my brother and sister and feeling blessed." Mystery solved. Twice.
