But alas, the Biebs is nothing but a tease -- the number turned out to be that of one of his friends and was posted as a birthday prank. The heartthrob posted the number and wrote "Call me... I wanna talk to my fans" to his Twitter page, which he later removed. It was only a couple of weeks ago that the 'Baby' singer caused another fan frenzy with a Twitter post claiming he was giving up tweeting all together. So much for that. Bieber currently boasts over 9M Twitter followers -- wonder how many screaming, frantic phone calls his poor friend must have had to fend off.
The teenage star is known for playing practical jokes on friends -- he recently punked his pint-sized tour mate Willow Smith while she was in the middle of whipping her hair on the live stage.
