Bieber Fever: Are you a Belieber?

Justin Bieber has taken the world by a storm for quite a while now, and as I seem to face writer’s block everytime I sit down to blog, I thought why not? Plus this will serve as a useful experiment for me, I will be able to see whether blogging about something which has high search ratings according to Google trends actually translates into more visits, followers and the highly sought after meaningful comments instead of spam.

Justin Drew Bieber

Well, unless you have been living in a cave for the past few years you already know that Justin Drew Bieber  is a Canadian pop/R&B singer, songwriter and actor. Bieber was discovered in 2008 by Scooter Braun who came across Bieber’s videos on YouTube and later became his manager. Bieber’s debut single, “One Time“, was released in 2009 and peaked in the top ten in Canada and charted in the top thirty in several international markets.

His debut album, My World, followed in November 2009, and was later certified platinum in the United States. He became the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

Besides from his music Justin Bieber is famous for his haircut, and his cult following among tween and teens. In my opinion, he looks and sounds younger than his 17 years, but I guess it works for his tween following. Apparently Just Bieber’s and Emma Watson’s new haircuts were the most influential hairstyles of 2011.

Justin Bieber batmobile or his black Ferrari is also a part of his trademark style. At a glance you’d be forgiven for thinking some kid’s taken some else’s car for a ride 🙂

The Observer newspaper in the UK published a report indicating that Justin Bieber is more influential in the social networking sphere than Barack Obama or The Dalai Lama! According to Jan Hoffman of The New York Times, part of Bieber’s appeal stems from his YouTube channel. Long before he released his EP, My World, in mid-November, the YouTube videos attracted millions of views. You can view his offical youtube channel by clicking here.

His duet with Mariah Carey’s All  I want for Christmas is You (above) although was a remake of what I thought was pretty good song, although Mariah’s antics in it are bit off-putting especially since she’s probably his mom’s age. What do you think?

Justin puts the J in the super-cute pop couple Jelena with Selena Gomez, who is two years older than him. Does Justin have a thing for older women? I’m sure his fans hope otherwise.

I personally think that Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber wouldalso make a really adorable couple although Taylor is five year’s older than him…but cougars are cool in 2012 or so Hollywood would like us to believe. What do you think?
