Michaela Wallace, 14, has co-written the tween new girl anthem: a bubbly, Hanson "Mmmmbop"-esque song called "Justin Bieber's Girlfriend." The video for the song depicts Wallace receiving Bieber concert tickets in the mail and then attending his meet-and-greet and concert. It has received more than 1 million plays on YouTube.
Though Wallace is a fan of Bieber she says that she does not really want to be his girlfriend--she just wanted to write a song for all his fans.
"I really do like Justin Bieber, but...I wanted to write a song that could relate to all those girls out there that love him and want to be his girlfriend--not because I wanted to be his girlfriend," she explained during a recent question and answer session with her fans.
Her idea worked. Girls have left adoring comments on her YouTube channel page saying, "You're like my idol! GREAT SINGER," "love your Justin Bieber's Girlfriend song!" and "Great job! You have a very good voice and I hope you[r] dreams come true!"
As depicted in the "Justin Bieber's Girlfriend" video, Wallace did actually meet the Canadian superstar at a fan pre-show mixer in Nashville. You can see them playing a video game together in the shot.
"I was nervous because he is Justin Bieber," Wallace told Popeater about the meeting. "But he was really cool and made me feel comfortable. Then, during the concert when he sang 'U Smile,' he came over and sang right to my cousin and I. That was pretty awesome."
Wallace has not spoken to Bieber, however, since she has released the music video. "Justin Bieber's Girlfriend" is featured on Wallace's four-song debut, The Justin Bieber's Girlfriend EP, which was released on iTunes in November.
The Monett, Missouri native--who wrote the song with Nashville songwriter Deanna Harper--began playing piano at age 7. She also plays guitar. Harper contacted Wallace after seeing some of her music videos on Facebook. The song reached No. 32 on iTunes.
If Wallace keeps up the momentum, she could be the next Taylor Swift, who also made her debut with a song named after a male pop singer ("Tim McGraw"). We will keep our eyes on Wallace.
