(Newser) – She could use the publicity for her cause, and he could use some press that doesn't involve fighting over girls or inadvertently fending off bear attacks. Which might explain this weird FaceTime pairing spotted by Pakistan's Justin Bieber and teen activist Malala Yousafzai. In a Facebook post last night, Bieber writes that they connected via video chat: "Just got to FaceTime with Malala Yousafzai. She has such an incredible story. I can't wait to meet her in person and talk about how I can support her and the Malala Fund." The Daily News notes that Malala has been working to drum up publicity for her fund, aimed at educating girls around the world.

She doesn't need that little puke to boost anything for her as he is all about himself and trying to repair his image. My daughter says she doesn't like him and he doesn't have a voice to sing.

Give Bieber a month. He'll have her smoking bud and doing his underwear.

I think either his manager or his mom is behind this. Or, he's just looking for a fresh piece of tail. I don't think this little blood clot would do anything that wasn't self-serving. In any event: RUN MALALA RUN
