Justin Bieber has taken to the internet to dispel the top 10 most bizarre rumours which have blighted him over the last few months.
The teenager has been a constant presence in gossip columns ever since he shot to fame last year (09), but the 17 year old has grown tired of the sensational articles which appear online.
He's now compiled a list of the strangest stories and posted explanations on his Twitter.com page.
Bieber begins his list by writing, "One... I'm not dead. I had to check on this one... but it turns out I'm alive."
He goes on to dismiss reports he's joined a cult: "I have not joined the Illuminati or any other cult. I'm a Christian and I pray before every show," and also denied he is the secret love child of Chuck Norris: "No CHUCK NORRIS is not my real father... although he did birth (sic) to Hercules."
And Bieber also crushed the hopes of his young female fans, by dismissing rumours he will be attending a public high school in 2011: "I'm home-schooled and not going to a high school next year in every city we have visited..."
