How long have you been a Belieber?
Forever. Since 2009.

Are you excited?
[On the verge of tears] Yeah.

So One Direction is playing Today . . .
I don't care. I mean, they're good and all, but it's all about Bieber.

But One Direction is the new thing?
No. They're nothing. Justin Bieber is just better.

Why is that?
Because he's just a helpful person and so inspirational and helps everyone. He's perfect and soooo good at singing. He's so attractive.

If Justin Bieber and One Direction got into a fight, who would win?
Justin Bieber. It'd be five on one but still, Justin Bieber would win.

If Bieber had a superpower, what would it be?
He would be able to teleport.

How long have you been a Belieber?
Since 2009.

Have you seen him before?
No, this is my first time.

Are you excited?
Yeah. He's just so amazing.

What's so amazing about the Bieber?
Everything. There's no bad part about him. He's just amazing.

So you're not a One Direction fan? Why not?
No. They're good and all, but Justin Bieber is just perfect.

So what makes Bieber so much better than One Direction?
Everything! [Screaming]

But we're talking about five attractive guys who can sing here.
Five, but it's against one. You can't compare them. If you like Bieber, you can't like One Direction. They're just different.

So there can be only one? Kinda like the boyband version of the Highlander?
[Blank stare]

If Bieber had a superpower, what would it be?
To fly or be invincible.

So did your parents get you out of school early to hang out outside the Barclays Center?
My parents got me out early, and my friends and I have been here since 2 p.m. We haven't seen him yet. We wanted to leave really early, but our parents wouldn't let us.
