LONDON -- One less lonely girl?
Swimming sensation Missy Franklin now has something other 17-year-old girls all over the world will be jealous of: a tweet from Justin Bieber.
The teen heartthrob singer wrote about Franklin Tuesday morning, hours after she won her first individual gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke.
