You know you've really made it when you're the subject of a celebrity death hoax. Joining the esteemed ranks of Jon Bon Jovi, Will ferrell, Cher and Will Smith, superstar Justin Bieber, 18, was Twitter's latest faux-dead celeb, with "RIP Justin Bieber" trending on Sunday night. And, as E! online stated, there wasn't even a fantastical story about him falling off a cliff to bolster the story - just the hashtag, which quickly faded.

It was, however, soon replaced by "RIP Haters of Justin Bieber," which itself popped into trends as the Beliebers fought the rumor.
