The 15-year-old Stratford, Ontario, native woke up this morning to discover he was the latest in a string of Internet death hoaxes as one was saying he’d passed away. Just before noon EST, Bieber, a notorious Tweeter, posted a link to an MTV News story about the hoax with the comment, “oh yeah…and it feels so good to be alive. haha.”
Bieber shot to stardom in the last couple of months, really, with his debut album “My World” coming out on Nov. 19. Since then, he’s performed all over most television programs in the United States and Canada, as well as for President Barack Obama and the First Family.
He also hangs out with Usher, who signed him to his record label.
