Canadian Justin Bieber is the son of a single mother, Pattie Mallette, who fell pregnant when she was 18-years-old. As a child, Bieber showed a strong interest in music, teaching himself to play many instruments. When he was 12, he entered a local talent competition, and placed second. His mother posted his performance on YouTube, and continued to post other clips of Bieber singing.
The videos soon built up a fan following, and caught the attention of talent agent Scooter Braun. Braun was able to secure an impromptu audition with Usher Raymond, who was impressed and helped Bieber to sign a record deal. His first single, "One Time", was a worldwide hit and was certified Platinum in Canada and the United States. This was followed by Bieber's debut album, "My World", which was an international smash. He also released a successful concert film, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011).
Bieber continues with a hugely successful music career and has tried his hand at acting, including guest starring in an episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000). He has a large and loyal fan-base, who are said to have "Bieber Fever" and are nicknamed "Beliebers".

I'm crazy, I'm nuts. Just the way my brain works. I'm not normal. I think differently. My mind is always racing.
[never plans on becoming an American citizen] You guys are evil. Canada's the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard's baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby's premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home.
I want to be a young dad. By 25 or 26 I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family.
All our decisions are based on long-term decisions. We use Michael [Jackson] as a template. The things he did for his career - a lot of the times it's was good, some of the times it was bad - but he was successful from being young to being old. That's what I want to get to. I don't want to grow up and lose my young fans, singing inappropriate music.
My voice always wanted to do runs, vocal acrobatics. Rather than make music that everyone else is making, with the same four-on-the-floor beat, I have a chance to change music. There's only a certain amount if people that can do that.
I believe in God and stuff. I believe He's given me this platform for a reason, to help change people's lives. That's why, in each of my shows, I try to give a positive message.
