There's a name for the inner circle of followers who know every song, every lyric and every little move Justin Bieber makes: Beliebers.
And if Anne Frank had not died at the age of 15 living inside a concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Germany, the pop star says he hopes she would have joined the ranks of those very fans.
