use of question marks

I have always worked on the basis that question marks were full stops as well, but consider the following sentence from a blog post:

"Who's Justin Bieber?" you might say.

This seems to be a punctuation nightmare. I want the question mark in there, but it doesn't feel right to start a new sentence directly after it. It feels as though there should be a comma. What is the correct form?

Nope, the way you are writing is correct!
