Justin Bieber is a singer and musician who rocketed to fame after being discovered on YouTube in 2007 by manager Scooter Braun. Justin signed with Island Records in October 2008 and released his first single "One Time" in July 2009.
Justin released his debut EP My World in November 2009. Shortly after, he released his debut album My World 2.0 in March 2010. His sophomore album Believe was released in 2012, followed by a collection of songs called Journals in 2013.
His hit songs include "Baby," "Never Say Never," "Somebody to Love," "As Long As You Love Me" and "Beauty and a Beat." The "Baby" music video is the second most watched video on YouTube.
He's also released two feature films titled Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Justin Bieber’s Believe documenting his two major tours. Ticket sales to the My World Tour made a total of $53.3 million worldwide and tickets for the Believe Tour grossed a total of $69.9 million worldwide from 67 shows.
Justin is the son of Jeremy Jack Bieber and Pattie Malette. He was born in Startford, Ontario when Pattie was just 16 years old. Justin was rasied by Pattie as a single mom with the help of his grandparents.
Justin and Selena Gomez started dating in 2011 and the two have been in an on-and-off relationship ever since. The lyrics of his hit song "Boyfriend" and many tracks on his album Believe are reportedly about his relationship with Selena.
The singer's been in his fair share of trouble with the law, from speeding to reportedly egging a neighbor’s home. It was all fun and games, until Justin was arrested for DUI in 2014.
