(Newser) – Fear the Bieber! Or at least the wrath of Justin Bieber fans—especially if you had the misfortune of beating the young heartthrob at last night's Grammy Awards. Angry fans of the Bieb ran wild on Esperanza Spalding's Wikipedia page after the talented but less-well-known singer won the Best New Artist award, Gawker reports. Among the many changes Spalding found: her middle name changed to "Quesadilla"; she won the Grammy "by stealing it from Justin Bieber"; and, perhaps most poetically, "SHE IS F****** REATARD." If you'd like some un-vandalized, and likely more coherent, facts about Spalding—click here.

The Grammy's are so freaking convoluted anyway, barring the surprising nod to Arcade Fire and Eminem. How does a kid who has been making [crappy] music for 3+ years qualify as a new artist?

Esperanza won because she has genuine talent, and she is an innocent who has done nothing to deserve the wrath of the mindless rabid Bierber fans! What Bieber has is just some hairdo that he spends hours grooming for that seemingly effortless casual look, and a pretty boy face. Just wait a few more years when he grows up, starts losing his looks and his hair thins out, as has happened with many teen idols in the past. Esperanza has bona fide musicality in her blood, and will be still going strong decades from now, long after Bieber has faded into the dust

I am so glad that cockey little Canadian did not get the award. The Beiber should go back to Canada and do his strut there. He won't be around long.
