Happy Belieber Day! 10 facts you may not have known about Justin Bieber.
Blessing our screens with his 1st single in May 2009, nearly 7 years later it seems Justin has taken the world by storm to have his own day named after him.
And to celebrate we are giving you 10 facts you may not have known about Justin Bieber…
- He has a step sister and brother
Although his parents are no longer together his father has remarried and he now has a step sister and brother called Jazmyn and Jaxon. And did we forget to mention he uploads the most adorable Instagram pictures of them together?
- Justin Bieber got placed 2nd in a singing competition
When he was aged 12, Justin entered a local singing competition in Stratford performing Ne-Yo’s “So Sick” and only got placed 2nd (we can’t believe it). However, it was after this competition his mum starting posting videos of Justin singing onto YouTube for all of his family to enjoy. Little did she know, these videos would be the beginning to Justin’s journey in becoming one of the biggest stars in the world.
- He has a cute puppy called Esther
On 22 March, Justin Bieber introduced us to Esther, his new, and extremely adorable terrier puppy. In an interview on the Elvis Duran Show, the singer was asked if he has a new girl in his life- where he then revealed that the love of his life is his new puppy. *Aww*
“Yes. I am in love…Her name is Esther, she’s my little puppy! She’s adorable. She’s a silky terrier. She makes me smile,” he said.
Putting aside that Esther is likely to have already lived a better life than 99.9999% of us, is it weird I’m jealous of a dog?
- His track ‘Baby’ is one of the most viewed music videos on YouTube
With over 1.2 billion views (yes, you heard it right), Justin Bieber’s single Baby is at the top as one of the most viewed music videos on YouTube. Just in case you have been living under a rock the past 6 years and have somehow managed to miss the video, check it out here!
- He’s not only extremely musically talented, but also very smart!
Not only did he teach himself the piano, trumpet, guitar and drums, but he also taught himself how to play the guitar like a drum. And on top of that Justin is also incredibly smart, being able to solve a rubric’s cube in a minute and a half. Pretty incredible. Don’t believe us? Check out the video here!
- This Christmas he campaigned NOT to be Christmas number 1
Just over a month after the release of his new album ‘Purpose’, Justin Bieber was dominating the charts with ‘Sorry’, ‘Love Yourself’ and ‘Where Are You Now?’. It was impossible to not hear his voice. But as the countdown for Christmas number 1 began, Justin heard he was against Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust’s choir and campaigned on Twitter for his 73.3M Beliebers to not buy his single and let the charity single be Christmas Number 1. *Our hearts have melted*
- Twitter once reported that 83% of twitter users are Justin Bieber fans
Maybe we should retake this survey since the release of the ‘Purpose’ album, it seems everyone is a belieber now!
- His pet peeves are Uggs, big sunglasses and too much makeup
If ditching these 3 items make Justin love us, we’ll happily sacrifice.
- His favourite sandwich is tomato and mayo on Wonder Bread
Unfortunately we’re not with you on this one Justin…
- Apparently whilst filming the ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ music video, the puppy in the video peed on Justin.
Pretty gross but you wanted something you didn’t know, so we are giving it to you!
