Justin Bieber (March 1, 1994)
Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
His album, My World 2.0 (the latter of his two-part debut studio album) debuted at #1 on the US Billboard 200, making Bieber the youngest solo male act to top the chart since Stevie Wonder in 1963.
Bieber was discovered when the music executive Scooter Braun accidentally clicked on one of his videos on YouTube. He was checking out another artist who was singing Aretha Franklin's "Respect," and Bieber came up with a related video singing the same song. Braun clicked on it thinking it was the same artist, and realized that the 20-year-old he thought he was watching was a 12 year old.
Born and raised in Canada, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 2008 to get signed by Usher, who had just won the battle for the talented kid over Justin Timberlake. Apart from producer, Usher also took the role of a mentor to the teen singer. As Bieber shares with Speed magazine, "Usher has had the greatest influence on my musical career thus far. He taught me how to hold a note, how to play the piano and even how to freestyle some funky-fresh lyrics."
Justin Bieber fans, who dubbed themselves "The Beliebers," have been named the greatest superfan community of the past 20 years by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Bieber's talent quickly turned him into a teen idol to the point that his popularity caused safety concerns, and he had to cancel a number of performances for safety reasons. In the middle of his world tour in 2011 he was even warned by the police in Liverpool that he could be arrested and charged with "inciting a riot" if he stepped outside of his hotel room. He managed to negotiate a compromise and wave to the crowd of fans from the balcony. The Daily Mail compared the Bieber Fever in Liverpool to the Beatles Mania a few decades earlier.
Justin is the son of Jeremy Jack Bieber and Patricia "Pattie" Mallette, who were both 18 when he was born. His parents never got married and Pattie raised her son with the help of her mother Diane, and stepfather, Bruce. Justin paid tribute to his mom with his song "Turn to You (Mother's Day Dedication)
," which he explained is about, "the struggles she went through and how brave she was and I think the world needs to know that."
To celebrate Justin's 18th birthday, his fans set the Guinness World Record for most social-media messages sent over a 24-hour period with 300,000 tweets. Justin overtook Lady Gaga in January 2013 as having the most popular celebrity Twitter account with over 33 million followers.
Justin is fond of fondue as the lyrics to "Boyfriend
" suggest. "Not the cheese kind," he said, "but the chocolate kind with, like, strawberries and stuff. Who eats the cheese kind unless you're old and from Paris?"
His autobiography Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever was published when Justin was just 16.
Justin endured his first big scandal when 20-year-old Mariah Yeater sued him for child support claiming he was the father of her baby son. When Justin agreed to a paternity test, Yeater's case fell apart. Justin wrote a song, "Maria
," about the experience.
He is the first singer to have seven singles from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100.
When Believe Acoustic debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, Justin became the first ever person under the age of 19 to score five #1 albums.
