MEET THE WORLD'S HOTTEST NEW POP STAR!
Discovered on You Tube, Justin's first EP went platinum, selling almost 200,000 copies the first week and his second debuted at number one, selling 300,000 copies the first week.
A musical appearance on SNL and the cover of People magazine make one thing clear:
BIEBER FEVER IS SWEEPING THE WORLD! THIS BOOK ANSWERS ALL THE BURNING QUESTIONS FROM DIE-HARD FANS -
- What are the latest details on his next album?
- How did he teach himself to play so many instruments?
- What was Justin's childhood like?
- What are Justin's plans for the future?
...and much more!
Marc Shapiro is the author Stephenie Meyer: The Unauthorised Bigraphy and of the New York Times bestselling biography, JK Rowling: The Wizard Behind Harry Potter and more than a dozen other celebrity biographies. He has been a freelance entertainment journalist for more than 25 years, covering film, television and music for a number of national and international newspapers and magazines.
This book is a well written biography of someone who has not lived long enough to have a lengthy story about their success. Shapiro covers a lot of ground in this book that will answer many questions that fans may have about this young superstar. After the whirlwind year that Justin Bieber has had, it seems like almost no one is immune to 'Bieber fever'!
Justin's first EP went platinum and his singles have been burning up the charts ever since. He's also performed on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, and at the Macy's Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. Beiber was the Seventeen cover star in the summer of 2010.
While many may slag off about Bieber, it can’t be disputed that he is popular, so millions must be buying his products behind closed doors. He also has a huge fan base, with over 4 million followers on Twitter and over 160 million (!!!) views of his music video for his debut single, "One Time."
While I don’t particularly like Bieber’s music, I found this book to be a very interesting read and a great success story that is very inspiring. From humble beginnings and a lot of dedication to music, this youngster has made a name for himself. The book is worth reading even if you are a fan, just to see the possibilities that are available to gain success through hard work and self promotion using the internet.
