At 21 years, Justin Drew Bieber has astounded the world, again. But this time for his incredible talent rather than his, err, lack of puberty!
This Canadian artist first came into limelight in 2010 with his ever so popular number “Baby”. For years now, he has been the target of global mockery and innumerable internet jokes about his boyish appearance and squeaky girl-like voice.
And we have all seen that meme of him and Miley Cyrus. (It was very funny and apt, though!) For those of you who haven’t here it is:
But he didn’t care and was a good sport about it all. In fact, the Roast of Justin Bieber by Comedy Central is a must watch. He always had his own fan following and support, who stood by him at his worst or his best. Be it when he was arrested in Miami, Florida for driving under the influence. Or when he received the best male video award at the MTV VMA (Video Music Award) for “U Smile” in 2011. Teenagers are crazy about him. And they always have been! And he plays along. Apparently, he says that all his girl fans are his girlfriends! Makes them swoon over him even more. Also, there’s a tale of his visit to Germany where a fan became unconscious when he told her “Ich Liebe Dich”, that is “I love you” in German.
And now he has finally flourished, not just physically (which is responsible for the newly added weight to his voice and Hey! he is 5’7″ now. Give him some credit. :P) to the top of the UK Singles Chart. He has beat and knocked off One Direction and Adele to occupy the top 3 positions in the chart with the mellifluous song “Love Yourself” (co-written by Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco) occupying the number one position. It is followed by the catchy number “Sorry” in the second spot and last but not the least “What do you mean” in the third position. This is the first time in history that any artist has grabbed the top 3 spots on the list. That’s called showing it to ’em bitches! Way to go!
Honestly, I’ve never really liked him or his songs. But now, “Sorry” is on my playlist and I have been listening to it on repeat. His songs have a soul to them now. And are much more meaningful. Experience is the best teacher as they say. So hats off to him!
Seems like 2016 has brought the greatest joys and success to Bieber. All the best for the year ahead!
