There is one thing Justin Beiber apparently can’t do — sell a magazine.
It seems that Justin’s over-10 million Twitter followers don’t buy magazines.
The 17-year-old star’s February Vanity Fair cover issue was the worst selling issue in 12 years, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
“Who knew 12-year-olds didn’t buy magazines?” a Vanity Fair spokeswoman said.
According to the Audit Bureau of Circulation’s’ Rapid Reporter, Justin’s issue only sold 246,000 copies. But the numbers could still change slightly.
However, if they stay the same, it will be Vanity Fair‘s lowest-selling cover since Will Smith‘s “Wild, Wild, West” cover in July 1999.
But it’s not just Vanity Fair that experienced low sales from a Bieber cover.
According to WWD, Justin’s October 2010 Teen Vogue cover sold 12 percent of the magazine’s 2010 average at 121,054 copies.
But in the words of Justin: “Never Say Never.” Maybe some day his covers will sell.
