What’s this about, then? Talent manager Scooter Braun, who represents Justin Bieber, PSY and Carly Rae Jepsen, says he’s “not even kidding” that the White House called. We believe him: anti-American rapper PSY was part of the Obamas’ 2013 Christmas in Washington celebration (Bieber was there in 2011), and Bieber kicked off the 2010 Easter egg roll at the White House.

Speaking of the Easter egg roll, the sequester-strapped celebration is right around the corner. So, any other clues to what this is about? An encore performance by the Biebs?
