Bieber Fever Hits Bookstores

Justin Bieber has sold over six million records worldwide and his YouTube views top out over one billion. The video for Bieber's Baby is the single most-watched online music video. Justin Bieber has also sung for the President of the United States and now, for the first time, Justin Bieber tells all in his very own book in stores now.

Justin Bieber

Growing up an only child in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, Justin Bieber was forever singing around the house and taught himself to play drums, guitar, piano and trumpet.

At twelve years old, Bieber placed second in a local singing competition. Justin channeled his passion into homemade music videos, which he posted to YouTube. The videos became instant word-of-mouth sensations, garnering an astonishing 10 million hits.

These videos caught the eye of top music manager Scooter Braun and his partner, R&B superstar Usher. They brought Justin to New York City to audition for LA Reid, Chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group, who signed Justin on the spot. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Bieber Book

In his very first book, First Step 2 Forever: My Story, Bieber details his journey from small-town schoolboy to global phenomenon. Packed with never-before-seen photos of Justin on and off stage, plus private, captured moments, this story of Justin's climb to superstardom is targeted to his die-hard fans who want even more Bieber.

Details in the book include the fact that Bieber's first album, My World, sent four songs into the Billboard Top 100 before the album even debuted. My World was certified platinum within three months and became the first debut album ever to chart seven songs on the Billboard Top 100.

Bieber's latest album, My World 2.0, debuted at number one on the charts and has since sold over six million copies worldwide. This number one debut made Justin Bieber the youngest male solo artist since Stevie Wonder in 1963 to top the chart. Sales of My World 2.0 increased in its second week, the first time a number one debut has done that since the Beatles' 1 hit the top spot in 2000. Justin is also the youngest male solo artist in SoundScan history to chart two albums simultaneously in its Top 5.

Pretty incredible for such a young performer. The book is now in stores.

So what now 8 year olds are writing autobiography? What can he possible talk about his life just started and he doesn't have a tough. What's he gonna talk about how the school bully would take his lunch money everyday?

I heard the guy try and cash in at Michael Jackson's funeral - and he has nothing of Michael's talent. I've seen him interviewed, and he hardly knows where he is, he so out of it. An autobiography? I'd be surprised if he could write. I'm sure it was written by a ghost writer. He is a creation of media hype. When you buy into this stuff, you are nothing more than a clone of the advertising corporate industry, doing their bidding. Gain some ears. Don't fall for this media hypster teenager. Listen to the real stuff. Sure he's cute, and I guess, if that's all you care about - but really gain some ears...

Are you kidding me? This kid is just looking for another avenue for money. He's barely lived life, and we've heard just about everything about him there is to know. And if you don't believe me, then read this article again.

"Details in the book include the fact that Bieber’s first album, My World, sent four songs into the Billboard Top 100 before the album even debuted. My World was certified platinum within three months and became the first debut album ever to chart seven songs on the Billboard Top 100." Wow - enlightening. We need to buy a book to find out something that is readily available information. Parents - your pocket is getting picked....THINK ABOUT IT!!

A 16 year old with an autobiography....FUNNY!! "When I was 2, I woke up with a wet diaper, my parents knew then the way I screamed I might have a future in the entertainment business."
