On the heels of the island in December copping the World's Leading Wedding Destination award, pop stars Justin Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez are in Montego Bay for the wedding of Bieber's father, Jeremy and new stepmom Chelsey Rebelo.

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett pointed out that high profile visits to the island, "enable the destination to effectively promulgate it's diverse offerings to specific and very important demographics while showcasing the island as a must do for a great vacation experience. We are undoubtedly a multi-faceted destination."

Bieber and Gomez's visit follows that of Russian Tennis Star Maria Sharapova, who vacationed in and around Montego Bay, staying at the famed Round Hill Hotel and Villas. There, Sharapova spent 15 minutes on the tennis court with a guest as part of a charity effort. Another famous pop music celebrity, Shawn Mendez, vacationed in Portland last week, while Singer Solange Knowles, sister of Pop star Beyonce, vacationed earlier this month on the island.

Meanwhile, billionaire fashion icon Ralph Lauren, who owns a vacation home on the outskirts of Montego Bay, spent several days on the island and was recently honoured by Hanover Charities at their yearly Sugar Cane Ball at Round Hill. Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Tourism Minister, Bartlett officially acknowledged Lauren's love and philanthropic work on the island.
