Trivia Eh? Justin Bieber

[ 0 ] June 11, 2014 |
  • In 2012, Forbes magazine named Bieber as the third most powerful celebrity in the world! Not bad for a Canadian kid who was born in London, Ontario and grew up Stratford.
  • Bieber was born on March 1, 1994.
  • In terms of social media popularity, it seems Justin is in a perennial race with Katy Perry. Their Twitter followers both numbered above 46 million in early 2014.
  • Justin’s mother, Patricia (Pattie) Mallette, had a very difficult upbringing and life, often skirting poverty. They lived in assisted housing for a time. Pattie published her own life story in 2012 called Nowhere but Up.
  • As a result of his mom posting videos of his signing on YouTube, Bieber was discovered in 2008 by Scooter Braun, an American talent manager.
  • Bieber has two movies under his belt so far: Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, and Believe
  • This young Canadian artist has many claims to fame, including being the first artist in history to have all of the songs from his debut extended play appear on Billboard’s Hot 100, and being nominated for two Grammy awards.
  • Bieber was arrested in early 2014 in Miami, and charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. He did not attend his Valentine’s Day court date.
  • Fans of Bieber are called “Beliebers”.
  • In the ‘do you need to know these things category’, Justin’s favourite food is spaghetti and meatballs, and the young star had his first kiss at any even younger age: 13!
