Biebermania has never reached such a feverish pitch. Justin Bieber is officially 20 years old. And so far he has made it to the big 2-0 despite the controversial events of the last few years.
The arrests over drag racing and DUI got him into quite some trouble. Then there was the stripper scandal with photos of him performing indecent acts on a nude buxom lady. He was caught with his pants down (literally!) with a prostitute in a foreign country. And several other similar shenanigans earned Justin a reputation as a bad boy.
All this provoked one of the sole survivors of the Bee Gees to offer him some unsolicited advice regarding cleaning up his act. But Bieber is unfazed. While he did celebrate his birthday with all the frills he didn’t let others know too much about what exactly happened at the party.
Bieber’s mother and father, who never got married in the first place, tweeted best birthday wishes to their son.
Happy Birthday son. Wow 20!— Jeremy Bieber (@JeremyBieber) March 1, 2014
Happy Birthday YOU KNOW WHO! I love you. Xoxo— Pattie Mallette (@pattiemallette) March 1, 2014
And other friends such as the singer Carly Rae Jepson also wished him a very happy birthday.
Bieber’s parents wanted their son to have a solid career in music and they worked hard to make this dream come true. The chap was picked from his YouTube videos by a person who saw the spark of pop genius in him. Since then Biebermania (like the older phenomenon of Beatlemania) has spread high, low and center.
Justin Bieber became the heartthrob of billions of teenage girls whose hormones virtually depended on his voice and image. And with the adolescent growth spurt that Bieber started suffering from since the past half decade or so, his mood swings and acts of rebellion caused much disruption in his life.
Selena Gomez was the center of his love life for a while and he became known for his rudeness to the paparazzi. Justin will make it as an adult performer provides he adds a little maturity to his behavioral repertoire.
Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes. Means a lot. Blessed and hoping we can continue to change the world together. Thanks— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) March 2, 2014
