Justin Bieber was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair this past February and it appears as if the issue is on track to become the magazine's worst selling issue in 12 years according to Women's Wear Daily. It could end up being the magazine's biggest cover bomb since Will Smith was on the cover in July of 1999. Although Justin is not the magazine's target audience he seems to have the same effect to other magazines too!

Women's Wear Daily also reports that Justin failed at selling copies of Teen Vogue (his target audience) because when he was on the cover in October 2010, sales were down 12% below the average for the year. Those aren't the only magazines reporting slumping sales when he's on the cover, People magazine said when Justin was on the cover in April 2010 it was their 3rd worst seller of the year.

Are you surprised by this?
