Who Is Justin Bieber?

Justin Bieber is a Canadian singer and songwriter who took the world by storm when he was 16 after his hit single ‘Baby’ gathered interest and recognition all around the world. He’s now one of the most famous singers in the world and has set records for music continually over the last decade. 

Justin Bieber Music


Justin began playing music when he was young, teaching himself how to play drums, piano, guitar and trumpet. He then began competing in singing competitions, with his mother posting footage of the events on YouTube for friends and family to see.

These videos were found by music promoter and talent Scott Braun accidentally while he was trying to find another singer’s music. Braun then invited 13-year-old Bieber to record some demos with him, where he met Usher, who helped him sign a record contract in late 2008.

His debut album “My World” was a hit and earned Bieber the title of the first artist to have seven singles from a debut album on the Billboard Hot 100. From there, he’s managed to continuously chart in his music and has collaborated with musicians such as Drake,, Skrillex, Diplo and Post Malone.

His US album and single sales are estimated to be north of 100 million and worldwide over 150 million, which makes him one of the best-selling artists in the world.

Justin Bieber Controversy

Bieber has been fairly controversial during his rise to fame. From scuffles and DUIs to saying he was going to quit music, he’s managed to ruffle a few feathers on his way.

Maybe most notably in 2014 when he was attacked by Orlando Bloom in an Ibiza nightclub. The conflict reportedly occurred after Bieber said, “She was good” about Bloom’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

He was also arrested the same year in Miami for DUI and resisting arrest (which led to more than 270 000 people signing a petition to the White House trying to get him deported) and later charged with vandalism after throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house.

Besides this, fans were left a little unsure how to feel after footage of him spitting toward his fans from a hotel roof, footage of him peeing in a mop bucket at a restaurant and a message he left in the Anne Frank House which read, “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully, she would have been a belieber.”

Justin Bieber Wife & Relationships


Justin Bieber has been associated with a huge list of girls, so it’s hard to say who he has and hasn’t had relationships with in the past, but his most well-known supposed (or confirmed) relationships include Miranda Kerr, Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez.

However, he’s now a married man after tying the knot with Hailey Baldwin in September 2018. The pair first met back in 2009, introduced by the model’s father and actor Stephen Baldwin (brother of Alec).

What is Justin Bieber’s Net Worth?

Justin Bieber’s net worth is a cool $285 million (according to CelebrityNetWorth). With more than 150 million record sales worldwide, it’s not hard to imagine where his huge fortune has come from.

A documentary concert film of him called ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never’ made over $73 million – the most ever made for that kind of film.

With this wealth, Bieber has bought himself a home worth $25.8 million in Beverly Hills, with neighbours like Denzel Washington and Eddie Murphy, as well as a lakeside house in Ontario. He also bought Hailey Baldwin an engagement ring worth about half a million dollars.

Justin Bieber Tattoos


Justin Bieber has in excess of 60 tattoos on his body, with his first coming when he was just 16 years old. The vast majority of Justin’s tattoos relate to religion, such as having a small cross near his right eye. Other tattoos on Bieber’s body mirror those of his wife, Hailey.

Justin has another larger cross in the centre of his chest to signify his faith in God. He also has a bear and a lion tattooed on each pec and a large eagle on his abdomen. Other tattoos include a depiction of Jesus Christ on his arm, some angel wings on the back of his neck, and a reading from Psalm 119:105 which reads, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”

Bieber also has tattoos of the names of his albums on various places on his body.

Some of Justin’s insane wealth is spent on a seriously enviable car collection, which includes such motors as a custom Rolls-Royce and a Lamborghini Urus SUV. Unfortunately for the pop singer, Ferrari has blacklisted him after he customised his 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia F1 Edition with a Liberty Walk body kit.

Justin Bieber Haircuts

As with a number of celebrities in the public eye, Justin Bieber has changed his hairstyle on numerous occasions.

At his recently concluded mini-concert in February 2024, Justin wore a royal blue NHL-customized sweatshirt while performing on stage.
