Justin Bieber's popularity -- 10 million Twitter followers, hit songs, a hit movie -- is apparently not carrying over to newsstands.
Vanity Fair's February issue, which featured 17-year-old Bieber on the cover covered in lipstick kisses, is on its way to being the magazine's worst selling issue in 12 years (see the cover after the jump). It's sold only an estimated 246,000 copies.
For comparison, the magazine's August 2010 issue with Angelina Jolie on the cover sold more than 500,000 copies.
Bieber also has meant bad news for other mags -- his October 2010 Teen Vogue cover sold 121,054, which is about 12 percent below the mag's 2010 average. People magazine's April 2010 Bieber cover sold 961,762 copies -- the weekly's third worst seller that year.
The question becomes whether Bieber is the problem, or whether the issue is that the younger generation doesn't buy magazines in general.
Still -- Justin has his ladylove Selena Gomez there to support him, even when he's down! Read where the two were just spotted together after the jump!
Justin and Selena were seen together in the ritzy Hamptons in New York -- a summer hotspot for celebs. They reportedly spent more than $700 at Flying Point Surf and Sports in Bridgehampton, N.Y., according to an eyewitness.
Gomez bought Toms wedges and a dress, and Bieber bought Toms shoes and more. The two called each other "babe" in the store, and then grabbed some ice cream across the street at Candy Kitchen.
