Following in the footsteps of Leonardo DiCaprio and whoever Ashton Kutcher plays on Two And A Half Man, the just-turned-18 Justin Bieber is ready to roll in a Fisker Karma. The teen pop star appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show today and was surprised by his manager with the plug-in hybrid birthday present. His manager, Scooter Braun, told him on the show:

You work really really hard. I always yell at you, 'Don't get anything flashy!' You know, we're not about that. Be humble, be humble. And I kind of broke my own rule. We wanted to make sure since you love cars, that when you're on the road you are always environmentally friendly. And we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out... I think you know where I'm going, and you're kind of freaking out right now. That's a Fisker Karma.

The young singer was suitably impressed. You can see the video after the jump.

Bieber tweeted that "[Ellen] and all of you are amazing" and now his "Belieber" followers are both discovering the car – "I now know what a Fisker Karma is, thanks to #Beiber" – and discussing, um, other aspects. Not everyone is impressed.

        Doubtful. the only people who like Justin Bieber are little girls, and people with the minds of little girls. They're not people who can drop $100k+ on a vanity car.

          Actually, the Fisker Karma was just featured on Ellen's show. You might have been caught up in Beiber-fever, but Ellen's audience is huge. Millions of people who'd never heard of or seen a Karma, have just been informed that it exists, and there is certainly a percentage that can afford to consider buying one.

      With all that money Justin made for Scooter he dresses like a bum. And what would Ellen do with Justin anyway? So now it's time to sign up for the draft, Justin. Or don't they do that in Canada?

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from: ( http://tinyurl.com/TopBargains )

      Don't get too excited folks. The kid has a Cadillac that was displayed at the 2011 SEMA autoshow. The dang thing looked like an F-117 Stealth Fighter and was ANYTHING but enviromentally friendly. http://www.gtspirit.com/2011/11/04/sema-2011-justin-biebers-cadillac-cts-v-coupe/ Money, that's what it takes these days for the young crowd in Hollywood.

      Jultin Bieber may be cute, but he needs to grow up. Pull up his pants and quit showing off his underwear. Wearing his pants belted below his backside looks tacky and stupid.

      I saw a Fisker Karma and a Focus Electric on the road yesterday. I was surprised to see both a rare car and one that isn't even for sale yet.
