Justin Bieber, Teenage-Girl Dream Boy

Justin Bieber.

Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a hugely popular young Canadian pop musician, actor, and singer-songwriter. Justin posted some videos on Youtube in 2008, when Youtube was just becoming popular. That decision propelled Justin Bieber to worldwide fame and fortune.

Justin was born in London, Ontario and is of German, English, French-Canadian and Irish ancestry. His parents were not married, and Justin's mother Patricia raised him. Justin has two younger siblings, sister Jazmyn and Jaxon (born in 2009 and 2010, respectively) from a different father.

An American talent manager (Scooter Braun) spotted one of Justin's Youtube videos. He liked it and decided to check Justin out.

Braun induced Justin to come to Atlanta to record some demo tapes. Braun liked what he heard and arranged for Justin to sing backup for his friend Usher within a week.

Braun signed Justin to his Raymond Braun Media Group, in which Usher also was involved. Braun used his contacts to arrange an audition with The Island Def Jam Music Group. In October 2009, Justin was signed by Island Records.

Now signed to a record deal, Justin began recording his debut album. He released single "One Time," which made the top twenty in both Canada and the United States and other countries around the world.

Justin released his first album - actually an extended play - "My World" in November 2009. "My World" went Platinum in the United States and double Platinum in both the United Kingdom and Canada.

After that, Justin Bieber became a musical phenomenon. Having gotten his start on video, he knew how to sell a song, so he went on numerous television shows to market his music.

Justin also turned to acting, appearing on television series "True Jackson, VP" late in 2009.

Justin's next album - actually, technically, his debut album - was "My World 2.0," released in 2010. "My World 2.0" debuted at the top of the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart. Once again, Justin did extensive promotion, and the album sold 3.5 million copies in the United States alone.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin also did well with his singles off of "My World 2.0." "Baby," featuring Ludacris, went top five in the United States, "Eenie Meenie" and "Somebody to Love" went top twenty, and "U Smile" went top forty.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Justin's single "Baby" is No. 1 for all time.

"Baby" was certified by the RIAA as going 12x Platinum - an absolutely phenomenal achievement. When including streaming, it became the highest certificated single of all time - by anyone. Ever.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


As of this writing, Justin has released four studio albums ("My World 2.0," "Under the Mistletoe," "Believe," and Purpose"). All four have reached No. 1 in the United States and Canada. There has been no dropoff in sales, either, as his most recent album, "Purpose," released in November 2015, sold more copies than his previous two albums.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin's domination extends to the singles charts, too. Aside from all of his other successful singles, he has had worldwide No. 1 hits with "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry," and "Love Yourself."

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin released a 3-D concert film, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," on February 11, 2011. It was a huge success and put Justin in the same league as Miley Cyrus, who narrowly beat Justin's box office gross with her own concert film, "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both World Concert."

Awards such as Artist of the Year for 2010 at the American Music Awards soon followed.

Justin Bieber is proudly Canadian and has stated that he has no intention of trying to obtain US citizenship like so many famous Canadians before him.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin's love life is always a matter of intense interest by the press. He famously dated Selena Gomez for a couple of years, but eventually they broke up in 2012. It is unclear who, if anyone, Justin currently is dating, but rumors repeatedly surface that it is singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld. She sometimes denies the rumors, such as on SiriusXM in May 2017, when she said, "We're friends. We've been friends for years."

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Some statistics help to illustrate Justin's wild popularity. In 2010, Youtube reportedly said that 3% of all of its traffic was due to Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


On the other hand, Justin also generates a lot of ill-will, perhaps from jealous boyfriends and the like. His "Baby" single, the one that is the most successful of all time, also has received more Dislikes on Youtube - 8.1 million at last count - than any other video on Youtube. Of course, it also has 7.1 million Likes, but those figures illustrate how Justin Bieber polarizes the music-going public.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin resides in the United States under an O-1 visa, which is based on "extraordinary ability or achievement" in a field.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin supports several charities. He has done work for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Adam Braun's "Pencils of Promise," and even launched his own online #GiveBackPhilippines campaign after Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. Justin personally delivered a check for $3 million to the Philippines due to his own fundraising, earning him a star on the Walk of Fame Philippines.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin has had several very notorious brushes with the law. For instance, he was arrested for driving under the influence in January 2014. He also had an expired license and, the police claimed, resisted arrest. Justin eventually settled the DUI case with a plea bargain that enabled him to avoid any jail time. This involved making a US$50,000 contribution to a local children's charity, "Our Kids."

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Chinese government also has issues with Justin. They barred him from performing in China in July 2017, claiming that the reason was to "purify the Chinese performance environment." The Chinese government claimed that Justin was "badly behaved" and "controversial." In fairness to Justin, the Chinese government has a long history of discriminating against foreign entertainment, and in the past even has had issues with Disney animated feature films.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin Bieber already has sold an estimated 100 million records. Even if he never sold another record, he still would be the best-selling male Canadian artist of all time.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


In 2013, Bieber received a Diamond award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to recognize his single "Baby" as being the highest-certified digital song of all time.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin reportedly has fourteen titles in the Guiness Book of World Records, including the most streamed track on Spotify in one week.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin Bieber is in a close race with Katy Perry for the most followers all-time on Twitter. At last count, Katy had just over 100 million followers, and Justin had just under that milestone. Justin also is in the top ten all-time on Instagram with over 90 million followers.

I believe in God and stuff. I believe He's given me this platform for a reason, to help change people's lives. That's why, in each of my shows, I try to give a positive message.
