This is what happens when you dethrone The Bieber.

Esperanza Spalding, who pulled off the biggest upset in award show history at the Grammys last night by waltzing in and taking Best New Artist right out from under Justin Bieber's bangs, is no feeling the wrath of tween girls everywhere.

According to MTV, minutes after Esperanza nabbed the tiny gramophone, her wikipedia page was attacked by furious Bieber fans. They taunted the singer, added false information, and generally acted like the hysterical children they are.

Although Bieber himself admitted to being "surprised" by Spalding's win, he apparently was very congratulatory to the jazz singer when they ran into each other backstage.
