Justin Bieber loves pranks almost as much as he loves taking his shirt off in inappropriate situations. So the "Boyfriend" singer wasn't going to let April Fools' Day go by without rounding up a victim or two. But also what a great excuse to mess with TMZ.

Biebs used the power of his almost 37 million Twitter followers to pull a fast one on the celebrity gossip site. Yesterday Justin tweeted, "As promised taking all fan phone calls TODAY at (888) 847 9869. Talk to u soon!" Only that 888 number is the tip line at TMZ. Whoops.

Justin eventually removed the tweet (Billboard has a screen shot), but here's hoping TMZ knows how to take a joke... and has the cash to pay for all those toll-free calls.
