Justin Bieber turns 18 today -- and to celebrate his milestone birthday, toofab has pulled together 18 of his most memorable moments!
Before Bieber Fever took over the world, the pop star got his big break as on YouTube sensation -- in large part thanks to his mother Pattie Mallette, who started posting his performances online.
Justin's renditions of popular Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Usher, Justin Timberlake and Stevie Wonder songs not only sparked the interests of nearly 10-million YouTube subscribers, but also of the former Def Jam talent agent Scooter Braun. With the approval of Def Jam, the then 13-year-old Justin landed a meeting and consequent record deal with his own icon, Usher.
The rest is music history. The self-taught singer, drummer, guitarist, and pianist has already been nominated for three Grammys, toured worldwide, hit the silver screen, and personally performed for President Obama. And now that the Biebs is 18, he can finally reap the financial rewards of his superstardom.
Happy birthday Justin! And like your “Beliebers,” we know you'll continue to do great things.
