New York magazine's Daily Intel ran a story last week about how President Obama had just made a promise that he couldn't keep: getting a 14-year-old girl whose father was killed in the attack on the World Trade Center the chance to meet pop megastar Justin Bieber. The girl, Payton Wall, says that Bieber's music helped her survive, despite her loss.
Obama made that promise during last week's ceremony at ground zero, meeting with Payton, her sister Avery and their mother Diane. Obama told Payton that he "knows Justin" and would set a meeting up with Bieber.
Well, Justin Bieber just proved New York magazine wrong – he tweeted that Obama would be keeping this promise.
What I find most notable about this story: it's apparently easier to get a meeting with the president of the United States than with Justin Bieber.
