Justin Bieber's Twitter page has become the target of an internet joke.

A public vote on the Canadian singer's My World Tour page asked users which country he should tour next, with no restrictions on the nations that could be voted on.

This spurred users of imageboard website 4Chan to nominate North Korea, with the vote now turning viral.

There are now almost half a million votes to send Bieber to the secretive communist nation.

The contest, which ends at 1800 on 7 July, saw North Korea move from 24th to 1st place in less than two days, several thousand votes ahead of Israel.

Given the fact that almost all citizens of North Korea are denied internet access and there are restrictive controls over all media, it is unlikely that any of the votes have actually come from within the country.

A spokesman for the North Korean Embassy in London told BBC News that any application for 16-year-old Bieber to tour would be dealt with by its mission to the United Nations, although the matter would be referred to Pyongyang.

Hate campaign

Justin Bieber has been target of a number of internet pranks in recent weeks.

Last month, a post on 4Chan urged users to all search for the term "Justin Bieber Syphilis" pushing it to the top of Google Trend's Hot Searches list.

It is not known if Kim Jong-il is a fan of Justin Bieber's music And over the weekend, Justin Bieber videos on YouTube were the target for internet hackers, redirecting users to adult websites or triggering pop-up messages saying that the Canadian singer had died in a car crash.

Google temporarily suspended commenting on videos and issued a statement saying: "We took swift action to fix a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability." The vulnerability hole was patched a few hours later.

His Last FM page was also hit, with photos of the singer replaced by pornographic images.

There have also been false rumours circulating that Bieber had died, that he had joined a cult, and that his mother was offered $50,000 to pose topless in Playboy magazine.

"Let's take some time to answer some crazy (rumours)... I'm not dead," Bieber wrote in just one of his Twitter postings.

And last week he posted that "My mum is a moral woman... let's just leave that one for what it is... because that rumour just grossed and weirded me out."

LOL! Bet North Korea be fun :)

You do realise he won't actually be going to North Korea?

But yeah, some of the stuff was pretty funny, though I find more humour in the pathetic losers who waste their lives on 4chan, especially going through all these lengths to embarrass a kid who can't affect their lives at all if they just turn the radio off, that's what I did

I'd play North Korea if I was given the chance ... sure I don't like the politics but that doesn't mean the people won't be nice infart people that have been suppressed would probably be far more grateful of a show than most. It would be fascinating to get a chance to go to North Korea to be honest and meet people. I'm pretty sure you can go in right now although I haven't checked the rules but I know full well you'd only see exactly what the government wants you to see if you played shows there though you might see a little of whats really going on there for the common person.

Well no, because they don't know they're being suppressed.

Because its perfectly natural to not be allowed to leave your country and have people favored by the government they're not stupid people know what is going on you hear stories from people that escaped across the boarder here and there.

Yes but for the large part most people don't have a clue. It's a bubble.
The only mobile networks are used by government workers and the elite.
The rest don't have contact with the outside world.
Their president is dead yet they still worship a defacto leader.
There's been no uprising so people obviously don't know how to do it.
They still think Stalin's alive and they worship him too.
They have no internet access, only an intranet system, and thats because the 'Dear Leader has kindly put all we need to know' on it (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/8701959.stm).
They don't know who Mandela is.

It iss a total and utter bubble and I wouldn't wish that lifestyle on anyone.

Israel Is awesome they have amazing beaches nice food and great weather. I go there every year for christmas purely because they don't celebrate christmas there so I can get away from all the stupid hype. Sending someone to Israel is not a punishment !
