Justin Bieber is Bad for Business

Looks like not everyone has Bieber fever. Justin Bieber was recently featured on the cover of Vanity Fair, which we just discovered is the worst selling issue in the last 12 years.

Biebs was on the February cover of the magazine wearing a men’s white shirt, a stripped tie and covered in lipstick stains.

If it were the cover of Seventeen magazine, the issue would have sold like hotcakes, but because it was VF, no one bothered to buy it. Well, okay, 246K people did. But that was still the worst selling issue in over a decade.

WWD reports that Bieber wasn't just bad for Vanity Fair. He didn't sell well last year for issues of Teen Vogue and People.

Hello people, Bieber fans go out and buy Teen Beat and teenybopper magazines that I’m too old to remember the names of—they don’t buy Vanity Fair.

So who has been Vogue’s biggest seller of the year? March’s Lady Gaga cover of course.
