Two weeks ago, a Justin Bieber fan parodied Justin Bieber’s “Girlfriend” in a contest where female fans were encouraged to cover “Boyfriend” as “Girlfriend.” But her frankly unhinged version – with bugaboo eyes and unflinchingly stalker-ish lyrics – made the video a viral hit.  Now, Overly Attached Girlfriend is back.
