15 Things You Don’t Know About Justin Bieber

15. Usher Initially Turned Bieber Down

Usher is well known to having helped nurture Bieber’s talents beyond YouTube. But initially, Usher wasn’t as impressed with young Bieber and turned him down. It wasn’t until Usher watched Bieber’s videos that he had a change of heart. And we all know that worked out well for everyone involved. Bieber has gone on to win numerous awards and from 2011 to 2013 was listed by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 10 most powerful celebrities in the world. And at just 21 years of age, the Biebs has a lot left in his tank.

14. Harry Potter Actor Thought Justin Bieber Was A Girl, Initially

Bieber has had some issues when it comes to his appearances. Some have compared him to a young lesbian for his girlish features and stylish haircuts. Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe thought Justin Bieber was a girl and was surprised to be corrected. When Radcliffe first heard the teenage boy singing, he assumed it was a young girl’s voice on the recording. You weren’t alone, Daniel.

13. Delayed Concert To Visit Young Cancer Patient

Fans get annoyed when music artists are late to their own concerts. But in some cases, it’s more than just partying and women that delays a male pop star. Justin Bieber delayed the start of his January 7, 2013 concert in Salt Lake City, Utah, because he was visiting a 7-year-old girl in the hospital. The young sick girl (pictured above) was suffering from Leukemia and Bieber thought it was far more important to spend some extra time with her than rush to the concert. Well done, Bieb’s! Props for the classy move.

12. He Loves Rom-Coms

Bieber is a big fan of the movie The Notebook. In addition to his love affair with love affairs, he enjoys watching Smallville and Friends on the small tube. You’re in good company here, Bieb, as many people would agree with you on these fine choices.

11. Teddy Bear Collection

Everyone has that special stuffed animal they loved as a youngster. Many of us outgrow these lovable stuffed creatures. Bieber still holds a couple of his stuffed teddies in sacred standing. He has one teddy named Mr. Bear and the other named Willis. What you talkin’ about, Willis!

10. Four Top 40 Singles Before Album Release

Bieber is the first solo artist to have four top 40 singles before even releasing an album. Due in large part to his YouTube attention, the Bieber hype machine was on full display when his songs from his first album were released. My World 2.0 contained a multitude of singing gems from Bieber. Once the song “Baby” hit the airwaves, the rest would be history.

9. Disney Fanatic

Bieber is a big fan of the magical kingdom that is Disneyland. In fact, Bieber visited Disneyland on a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway with former girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Gomez, of course, is a former Disney television princess herself, so maybe Bieber was just returning the wild starlet back to the mothership.

8. Get Out Of His Way, His Father Is A Former MMA Father

Justin Bieber isn’t known as a big brawler. In fact, he began his career very small in stature. But his father Jeremy Bieber is a former MMA fighter. Justin may not have had a lot of size, but judging by his recent run-ins with the insane paparazzi, he apparently has some of his father’s fighting zeal inside him. Bieber has been accused of pushing a few loose cameramen around over the last two years. The overzealous photographers have been trying to chase down Bieber on the road. Better watch out, if Bieber has some of his father’s moxie, I wouldn’t want to be on the wrong end of a right cross. And over the past two years, Bieber has been bulking up so a jump into the octagon may not be far behind!

7. He’s Got His “Swag” On

Besides enjoying saying the word swag way too much, Bieber is “very influenced by black culture” although he also doesn’t think of culture in terms of race. Bieber stated, “It’s not me trying to act or pose in a certain way. It’s a lifestyle—like a suaveness or a swag, per se.” Well, that’s really…swag I guess.

6. Cap’N Crunch To Satisfy His Hunger

Bieber, like anyone, has a taste for certain kinds of foods. First off, if he is out and about, Bieber gets pretty excited when he sees a Friday’s on the street corner. All you can eat apps! At home, if Bieber has had a long day (and maybe has a bit of the munchies *wink-wink*), Biebs likes to break out some Cap’n Crunch Berries. Aye-aye, Justin!

5. More Twitter Followers Than Canada’s Population

When Justin Bieber surpassed Lady Gaga with 35.1 million followers, he became the most-followed person on Twitter. He now boasts more Twitter followers than the entire population of Canada. I’m not sure what that says about society, but when Justin speaks, there are a heck of a lot of people that will listen.

4. Tattoo King

Bieber sports a lot of tattoos for a youngster. His tats include an owl and the word “Believe” on his left arm; a crown and Roman numerals on his chest; a bird on his hip and Jesus tattoos on his rib cage and left calf. On a side note, if Justin Bieber gets one more Jesus tattoo he will win a set of steak knives.

3. Never Say Never Movie Received Harsh Criticism

Justin Bieber starred as himself in a 3-D movie/biopic (because seeing Bieber in two dimensions has been such a drag) entitled Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. The movie grossed nearly $100 million when all was said and done. The New York Magazine has this to say about the film: Bieber was “a bland, pious, profoundly unthreatening little Furby of a pop idol.” I’m not sure what that means, but the bank Bieber made from the film probably far exceeded the number of people that read that poor review.

2. $750 For A Haircut?

To women across North America, beauty salons are a lifeline. To a male pop star, the beauty outlets also provide those with full-flocking heads of hair an opportunity to properly get spruced up. One gossip publication claims that Bieber has been known to spend up to nearly $750 on a haircut. Guess I won’t be seeing him at my local Supercuts anytime soon.
