Justin Bieber is 18 today, and officially a man. Bring on the cougars!
Justin Bieber might share a birthday with Ke$ha, but Biebs is the one getting all the attention today.
The pop sensation has been making the ladies young and old swoon since he first stepped into the music scene in 2009. Now that Justin Bieber is technically an adult, the “teen sensation” angle is kind of out the window. So will Justin Bieber be changing his image all together?
Teen idols have faced similar challenges for decades and have failed to make the leap. But unlike his predecessors Justin Bieber has an all-star posse to back him up, including his manager Scooter, mentor Usher, and girlfriend Selena Gomez, not to mention millions of adoring fans.
Justin Bieber does have a new single debuting this month, but no word yet as to whether or not he will be changing his image.
Justin Bieber probably isn’t too worried about the future of his fame today, though. Earlier this week Justin Bieber celebrated his birthday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, where his manager Scooter presented him with a $100,000 Fisker Karma, a hybrid sports car.
Justin Bieber fans are also trying to help the star get into the record books today. Fans are sending birthday wishes to the star via Facebook and Twitter in an attempt to set the record for “Most Social Media Messages in 24 Hours”.
The current record is 209,711.
Justin Bieber has asked his fans to donate $18 to the organization charity: water in honor of his birthday. The charity provides clean drinking water to people in developing countries. Last year fans donated $47,148 to the charity at Biebs’ request.
A do-gooder with a great voice, legendary stage presence, and a cult following? Could Justin Bieber find any more ways to make us adore him?
Happy 18th Birthday, Justin Bieber!
