Fandoms are colliding!
Justin Bieber, who is on his “Believe” tour right now, met sports legend Michael Jordan Tuesday night (Jan. 22) at his tour stop. The Charlotte Bobcats tweeted the above photo with the caption: “At the arena for his concert @JustinBieber got a chance to meet Bobcats Chairman #MichaelJordan! #jordan #mj #nba #bieber #swaggy.”
Bieber chimes in on Twitter, “i would like to repeat. I met MICHAEL JORDAN tonight! #SWAG” and “one more time.. Michael Jordan. that happened.”
Want to feel old? Michael Jordan’s first retirement came several months before Bieber was even born. Do you suppose most Bieber fans even know who Michael Jordan is?
Bieber has just a handful of stops left on this U.S. leg of his “Believe” tour. Starting in February, the Biebs heads for Europe, then in May, he will move to Dubai and South Africa. In June, July and August, he’ll be back in the U.S.
