Executive summary: Baby

Tween dream Justin Bieber says he took some drum lessons before kindergarten, but taught himself to play the guitar, piano, and trumpet. He sang in his church, earned spare change working as a busker in front of the Avon Theater in his home town of Stratford, Ontario, and took second place in a local talent show in when he was 12. His mother started posting his videos on YouTube in July 2007, when he was 13, and the videos were hugely and instantly popular. Within six months he was signed to a contract with Island Records, and in 2013 he became the first recording artist to have five #1 albums before his 19th birthday.

Evidence suggests that Bieber is best buddies with Usher, who sang back-up vocals and appeared in the video for Bieber's first single, "One Time", and apparently owns a piece of Bieber's recording contract. To pursue his career, Bieber and his mother have moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where they live near Usher's home. In November 2009, Bieber told the Toronto Star that at Usher's suggestion a "swagger coach" had been hired, who "helps me and teaches me different swaggerific things to do".

Swaggerific indeed: As a young adult Bieber has gotten numerous tattoos, urinated in a janitor's mop bucket at a restaurant, been carried by his bodyguards onto the Great Wall of China, abandoned his pet monkey in Germany, suggested that Anne Frank "would have been a belieber," pled no contest after doing an estimated $89,000 damage by egging his neighbor's house, texted vulgarities to ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, spit off of a hotel balcony onto his fans below, joked about joining the Ku Klux Klan, and been charged with stoned driving a rented Lamborghini in Miami Beach and assaulting a limo driver in Toronto.
