Folks, I’ve been sick in bed all week... with Bieber Fever! Ahh, Justin Bieber... *swoon*! If only he could whip his hair back and forth and sing a tune for me. Backstage passes, here I come! Listen, teenyboppers, I realize in "Bieber years" I’m considered an antique, prehistoric, haggard, creepy old lady, but frankly, I don’t give a hoot! Sticks and stones may break my bones, but Bieber swear words won’t hurt me! I have no shame in saying that I rock out to “Baby” in my car and have a few... fine, my whole wall plastered in Bieber posters. I will forever be a diehard Belieber!
The irresistibly charming Justin Bieber made his debut on YouTube when he was 12 years old. Within seven months, he not only acquired over 10 million hits on his videos but also the interest of former marketing executive from So So Def, Scooter Braun. Shortly thereafter, he was signed to a recording contract with Island/Def Jam, who released his first album, My World. Needless to say, My World went multi-platinum and Justin Bieber became an international superstar. Today, he has achieved pop supremacy with over 22.5 million Twitter followers and 2.5 billion views on YouTube (yes, you read this correctly)!
Mayday, Mayday! Calling all Beliebers! Tickets for Justin Bieber’s Believe Tour go on sale Saturday, June 2, at 10:00 A.M! Due to the high demand, I suggest you don’t wait until 10:01 to purchase your tickets. For ticket information, see here. Also, Bieber’s much-anticipated album Believe will be released on June 19! Too much excitement for this old granny!
Happy touring, Biebs! We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Staples Center in October! Let the Bieber music play!
