A Brit says she is the world’s biggest Justin Bieber fan – sleeping with a cardboard cut of him and legally changing her surname so she can pretend they’re MARRIED.
Devoted Gabrielle Newton-Bieber, 22, has FIVE tattoos of the pop star and owns every record, DVD, perfume, nail polish and make-up the star has ever put his name to.
She sleeps next to a lift-sized cutout of the Canadian singer, has a wardrobe full of Bieber clothes, and her walls are covered with posters bearing his face.
Gabrielle is hoping that her dedication to the Canadian will convince him that she has to be his BABY – as she’s been obsessed with him for SIX YEARS.
Supermarket worker Gabrielle said: “Even my boss calls me Justin now.
“I always call Justin my husband when I talk to people. I say ‘I’ve got to go my husband is just one the TV’.
“They find it a bit weird because we are not really married – If only we were. Just maybe one day.
Gabrielle, who has never had a boyfriend, swears the only man who will make her happy is Justin – or failing that a long-lost twin or a really good lookalike.
She said: “I think Justin Bieber is the only man for me. I wouldn’t literally go out with anybody else except Bieber unless he had an identical twin or a lookalike.”
Gabrielle obsession with the 21-year-old singer began back in 2009 following the release of his debut single ‘One Time’.
She said: “Justin released first single ‘One Time’ when I was aged 16 and straight away I was obsessed. He was so cute with his floppy hair and riding his skateboard.”
“I fell for him instantly. He makes us all so happy – Justin Bieber is my world.”
“I wouldn’t change anything about him. He has made mistakes and I think he needs to learn from them and I wouldn’t copy his bad boy antics but I wouldn’t want to change him.
She continued: “I like him even more now than I did as a teenager. He has got very sexy with age – such great abs.
“I think his sexiest moment was when he appeared in his boxers in the Calvin Klein advert or his new video when he is in his boxer shorts and all wet.”
Her obsession with Justin has since been inked into her skin as a permanent reminder.
On one side of her ribs she has ‘Bieber’ tattooed on with ‘Believe’ on the other.
Underneath one of her breasts she has ‘Belieber’ inscribed while on her shoulder she has a copy of the key that is often spotted hanging round the singer’s neck with ‘Never Say Never’ written underneath.
She said: “Next year I plan to get ‘Purpose’ tattooed under the other breast, but I wouldn’t go as far as getting his face tattooed on me unless it was somewhere like on my bum.”
Gabrielle begged her mum to let her change her name – and eventually her mum relented and even PAID for the name-change as a birthday present.
Gabrielle said: “My mum was like ‘no way’ and told me to wait a few years before changing it.”
She even admitted to sleeping with the cardboard cutout of Bieber that she won in a competition when she was 16.
She said: “I just tried it out once just to see what it was like but it would have been better if it was the real thing.
“Sometimes I will talk to him and ask him to move if he is in the way, but I haven’t had dinner with him or anything like that yet – perhaps I will bring him down so he can have Christmas dinner with us this year.
“I’ve had a lot of dreams about him and about what I would do if I met him for real, one dream he’d get me on stage and sing ‘One Left Lonely Girl’ to me and then I’d get to meet him backstage afterwards.
“It would be so cool if I was his ‘One Left Lonely Girl’.
“But honestly if I met him I would probably just burst into tears.
“I do think if I won the lottery I would probably end up stalking him, finding where he’s living and move there.”
Gabrielle, of Worksop, Notts., has chosen to go public about her obsession in the hope that Justin will meet her when he comes to perform at Sheffield Arena, South Yorks., next October.
She said: “To meet him would literally mean the world to me, it is my dream.
“I want to thank him for all he has done for the Beliebers.
“Whenever anything bad happens in the life or anyone gives me stick for anything, I just think to myself, what would Justin Bieber do?
“Then I shrug it off.”
Gabrielle said her top three Bieber hits were Believe, Purpose, and lesser-known track Bigger.
She and sister Francesca, 25, who is also a big fan, have seen him perform twice – once in Sheffield and once in Nottingham.
Gabrielle said: “I hope Justin gets to read this. It would be so amazing to meet him.”
