Can you Beliebe it? A convicted killer in New Mexico had apparently concocted a plan to have Justin Bieber murdered—and castrated—at his Madison Square Garden concert last month, but told on himself before the hit could go down. Dana Martin, who is said to be obsessed with and have a tattoo of the pop star on his leg, reportedly recruited his fellow inmate Mark Staake and Staake’s nephew to, once Staake was released, kidnap Bieber and his bodyguard and then strangle them with paisley ties—Martin’s signature. For some unknown reason, Martin blew the whistle on the whole operation, and Staake and his nephew were arrested.
