Justin Bieber is celebrating his 20th birthday today!
The “Biebs,” as he is affectionately called, began his rise to superstardom when his current manager, Scooter Braun, discovered him performing covers on Youtube. Braun brought Bieber to both Usher and Justin Timberlake, and a bidding war ensued, before he began working with the now-"Voice" coach.
Bieber became an overnight sensation, storming the Billboard charts and invading living rooms everywhere. He became the first solo artist to have four singles enter the Top 40 before the release of their debut album, his video for “Baby” boasts nearly one billion views, and he is the youngest artist to earn five number-one albums in the U.S.!
The ubiquitous megastar just released a new album, "Journals," as well as a concert doc, "Justin Bieber's Believe." The singer is so popular in fact, that he has nearly 50 million Twitter followers, more than the population of his native country of Canada.
Justin has had a few brushes with the law over the past few months, but we have no doubt that this gifted young man will be back on top in no time.
