Justin Bieber: Philippines Leads the World in Interest in Justin Bieber, According to Google

Note to Justin Bieber's management and record label:

According to Google Insights for Search*, for the last 90 days or ever since the Youtube sensation burst into global stardom, The Philippines has been leading the world in interest in the keyword 'Justin Bieber', which I believe translates to interest in the pop star himself.

Here's the regional interest chart for the said keyword as of May 29, 2010:

1. Philippines 100
2. Indonesia 78
3. Ecuador 76
4. El Salvador 75
5. New Zealand 72
6. Guatemala 57
7. Dominican Republic 57
8. Panama 56
9. Costa Rica 55
10. Peru 50

The numbers don't lie. Clearly, nowhere else in the world is Justin Bieber more popular than in the Philippines.

Anyway, for the oldies and the uncool ones who still don't have any idea who he is:

Justin Bieber (pronounced /ˈbiːbər/, BEE-bər; born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian pop/R&B singer. His performances on YouTube were seen by Scooter Braun, who later became his manager. Braun arranged for him to meet with Usher in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bieber was soon signed to Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), a joint venture between Braun and Usher, and then to a recording contract with Island Records offered by L.A. Reid. [via Wiki]
