Justin Bieber is Secret Performer at MTV Video Music Awards 2012

Is Justin Bieber pulling a Clint Eastwood and gearing up for a secret VMA performance? Signs are pointing to yes. While the pop icon is set to appear at Fashion's Night Out in New York City, some hints have been dropped that the heartthrob may actually be MTV bound.  

MTV has made reference to a "secret guest" performing with Nicki Minaj, and Bieber and his team have left clues for audiences that the secret guest might be him. 

On Tuedsay, Bieber sent a tweet that had fans thinking he was in VMA rehersals: 


Bieber's manager Scooter Braun also left a clue tweeting: 


We already know that many of the names in Braun's tweet (namely the One Direction crew) will be at the VMAs, so it's pretty fishy that Bieber would be hanging out with them if he wasn't in rehersals (which One Direction is in all week). 

Braun also retweeted a photo from Jon Chu, Never Say Never director, which really got Beliebers pulses up. 


Is the secret Bieber at the VMAs? We'll have to tune in on Thursday night to find out.
