Bieber fever hits the Island

POP superstar Justin Bieber has his sights set on buying a new house on the Island

Insiders have revealed the Baby singer — who recently sold his house to celebrity Khloe Kardashian after falling out with all his neighbours — is planning to splash out on a holiday home on the Isle of Wight, according to showbusiness website

The appeal is said to be the fact the Island is cut off from the mainland, and can only be reached by boat or plane.

Bieber apparently wants a retreat to escape to with his on/off love, film star Selena Gomez.

"Justin wants somewhere quiet to escape to when it all gets too much," said the gossip website.

"England has always appealed to him, and he wants somewhere that feels like it’s cut off from the rest of the world — which is why he has his heart set on the IW.

"His people are putting out feelers and trying to find him the perfect property for him and Selena to enjoy as and when they feel like it. Of course, money is no object."

If he wants to escape when it all gets too much, then don't go to the Island as the minute he gets off of the boat someone will know and before he gets to his house everyone will know and swamp his house lol

Spot on Steve Jones. Regardless of what people think of him, someone with influence that puts out a positive message about the IOW can't be bad for raising tourism.... people in the USA now realise that there are 2 "Isle of wights" in the world!

This is great news. Having a super guy like Justin buying a home here will put the IOW on the map for so many people. Our economy relies purely on tourism and this free publicity will do so much more than all those ads on the London Underground. Look forward to the influx of high spending tourists following his lead.

It's nice to have some new blood over here, even if it is Bieber. I await his collaboration with Level 42 and Goodbye Stereo.
