Late Night Justin Bieber Math
I was laying in bed playing on my iPhone and checking Instagram before going to sleep last night. I call that “relaxing before bedtime.” I happened to land on Justin Bieber’s Insta. He has 83.5 million followers. EIGHTY-THREE POINT FIVE MILLION.
Did your mind go where mine did? Are you feeling compelled to calculate what percentage of the world’s population that is? Well, I’ve done the math for you. That’s about 2% of the entire world following Justin Bieber on Instagram. Two percent. The whole world.
How many Americans is that? TWENTY-SIX PERCENT. Now, I know he has followers from all over the world. But there are 325,880,000 people in the United States. 83,500,000 is 26% of 325,880,000. So, the equivalent of 26% of people in the United States are following Justin Bieber on Instagram.
What does this mean? I don’t know. Nothing, maybe. Let’s talk about a more important question: Why is Justin Bieber looking more and more like Eminem? Odds are slightly better than 1 in 4 that you know the answer because you’ve been following his transformation on Insta.
