Dispensing such words of wisdom as, "Haha good morning hair. I look like a peacock," "if u grow up to be a good man, the rest will all make sense," and of course, "Time for a workout," it's no wonder Justin Bieber just became Twitter's most-followed user. Yes, the Biebs overtook Lady Gaga in the wee hours today, according to Mediabistro. He currently has 33,331,363 followers to Gaga's 33,327,381. Mediabistro predicts that—lucky for us!—Justin will be in the top spot for quite some time. (In other Bieber news, a former bodyguard claims Bieber roughed him up.)
