Justin Bieber might be an NC State fan, and here’s proof

Is Justin Bieber an N.C. State fan?

Bieber was spotted on the streets of New York wearing a cowboy hat, mustard jacket, red and white leggings and a pair of shorts that appear to have the N.C. State University logo.

The Canadian pop megastar, known for songs like “What Do You Mean?” and “Sorry,” was photographed getting out of a black SUV on May 30. The pictures appeared in several media outlets and on multiple Twitter accounts.

“It is one of the entertaining parts of living and working in the Triangle. A simple image like that can generate so much conversation, not just from the N.C. State fan base but from all of the local fan bases,” said Fred Demarest, N.C. State athletics spokesman.

The N.C. State connection just might be his pastor, Carl Lentz, who preaches at Hillsong NYC. Lentz walked on to the Wolfpack basketball team, 1998-00.

Bieber is on his third world tour.
