Paramore have poked fun at Justin Bieber and the drama surrounding the pop star's alleged artwork plagiarism.

As reported, Bieber shared new track 'We Were Born For This' with fans earlier this week. An image attached to the SoundCloud link caught the attention of Paramore fans for its similarities to the cover for the band's 2007 album 'Riot!', and it later transpired that the exact image was first posted on a fan's Tumblr page in 2011.

In a post on their own Tumblr, Paramore have poked fun at the incident with all four members of the band posing for new artwork for their single 'Ain't It Funny', which bears a striking resemblance to Justin Bieber's 'Believe' cover (see above).

This follows comments made online by Paramore singer Hayley Williams about the incident in which she said she "wasn't even listening". Justin Bieber has yet to respond.

Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Blink-182 will headline Reading and Leeds Festivals 2014. It will be both Queens of The Stone Age and Paramore's only UK festival appearances of the summer.
