If you're one of Justin Bieber's Twitter faithful, you already know that the teenage Lothario finally broke the ten million mark this past weekend, putting him nearly neck-to-neck with Lady Gaga with 10,094,736 online Biebers to her 10,596,888 Little Monsters.
So what put him over the top? No doubt, it was teaming up with the Royal-in-Laws. The teen crooner inked a deal giving the Middletons the exclusive rights to use his image for a line of party products, plastering his cherubic face over a purple piñata, slurpy straws, paper plates and 14 other products manufactured by Party Pieces, the website owned and operated by the parents of the newly dubbed Duchess of Cambridge and her fetching sister Pippa.
You can probably trace the partnership back to the day the singer was so overcome by the royal nuptials he tweeted: "Congrats to William and Kate...and Kate's sister."
While certainly flattered, the Middletons knew that opportunity had knocked and wasted no time in recruiting Bieber for his own line of purple partywear. Even before wedding guests had picked all the rice out of their clothes, the Party Times, a newsletter produced by Pippa Middleton, announced, "We've got Bieber fever!
"Teenage girls around the world go crazy for the Bieber. In fact, they love Justin Bieber so much that the pop star now has his very own partyware. If you not sure where to start with a Bieber bash then fear not - just read on for our top tips."
