Justin Bieber is in Iceland, and the local media coverage has left no stone unturned and no detail unreported.

Nútíminn was first on the case, reporting that Bieber stopped at the restaurant Lemon in Reykjanesbær where he spoke briefly with employees. Eyewitnesses say he and his entourage went to the seaside and took a few selfies.

Icelanders were expressly forbidden to take photos of Bieber, as it is reported he had “a giant bodyguard” with him who made it clear to passers-by that they were absolutely not to take photos of Bieber.

Bieber was also hungry, and the media was on the case. Vísir reports he went to Subway. There, the Canadian pop star ordered a turkey sub (12 inches). The employee who served him was reportedly “in shock”.

Perhaps needing a beverage with which to wash down that turkey sub, MBL reports he stopped in the coffeeshop Kaffitár and ordered a double cappuccino. An employee at Kaffitár described Bieber as “in a very good mood”.

Vísir then reported Bieber was sighted in Selfoss, where he allegedly used a public restroom. Bieber’s bodyguard stood outside, reportedly preventing others from potentially using the same bathroom.

According to sources close to Vísir, Bieber is currently on his way to Gulfoss and Geysir. Where else he plans to use the toilet and what else he will eat has yet to be reported.
