The world is full of 'Beliebers', as the many fans of Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber are known. But it appears Spain's Fernando Alonso is not one of them.
While the singer has over 50 million fans on Twitter and celebrities including actor Ryan Gosling and TV personality Kim Kardashian are reputedly firmly on the Justin Bieber bandwagon, Alonso snubbed a possible meeting with the star when the two coincided in Monaco recently.
According to racing magazine F1 pulse, Alonso said he was "too busy" preparing for the mythical Monaco race to meet the singer.
It wasn't all bad news for Bieber though. He did manage to get a selfie with Formula 1 president Bernie Ecclestone.
Alonso ended up coming fourth in the race held on Sunday, while Germany's Nico Rosberg took the chequered flag.
