Justin Bieber is a Canadian singer/songwriter who is one of the most recognizable faces in the world. He is a multiple-times Grammy Award-nominee and a one-time winner. He also has four studio albums to his name, with a fifth on the way in February 2020, titled Changes. A multi-millionaire, his albums have all been certified platinum multiple times. Oh, and did we mention he was only 25?
Indeed, there is little that Justin Bieber hasn't accomplished in his life. He has all the money in the world, and women bend over backward to be the one to be with him. All that being said, it is also worth mentioning that it has not all been smooth sailing for the young Canadian. He has a history of public misdemeanors and felonies.
He has since turned his life around and has settled down with his wife, Hailey Baldwin. There is no denying that Justin has lived a colorful life, to say the least. In this list, we look at seven facts about the struggles and triumphs of Justin Bieber.
Justin is a singer, songwriter, model, and a multi-instrumentalist; maybe it's time he added "human tattoo gallery" to his résumé. Most of us would shudder to make one trip to the tattoo parlor, but Justin has gotten inked more than 50 times!
His tattoos range from purely aesthetic to deeply meaningful, and you would be hard-pressed to find an inch of his body not adorned in ink!
In January 2020, Justin dropped the bombshell news about his recent diagnosis with Lyme Disease.
The tick-related condition causes- among other things- depression, fever, rash, fatigue, and joint problems.
In a statement on his Instagram, Bieber addressed his "looking like he was on meth", and said:
"While a lot of people kept saying justin Bieber looks like s**t, on meth etc. they failed to realize I've been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease."
To date, Justin has released four studio albums, three compilation albums, three remix albums, and an EP.
All his studio albums have been certified platinum by the RIAA, and his fourth studio album, Purpose, was nominated for four Grammys.
Justin is set to drop his fifth studio album, titled Changes, sometime in February 2020. He is busy promoting the album heavily and has dropped two singles, "Yummy" and "Intentions" off of the album.
No one would have thought that Justin would give up his playboy lifestyle and settle down, but such is the nature of love! Justin tied the knot with Hailey in a Manhattan courthouse in September 2018, and had a lavish ceremony a year later, in September 2019.
Before Hailey tamed the wild child, however, Justin was a notorious philanderer and had flings with the likes of Selena Gomez, Sofia Richie, Nicola Peltz, and a litany of other women.
Justin Bieber is one of the richest celebrities, not just in the music world, but in showbiz as a whole.
As of 2020, his net worth is reported to be $285 million. His multiple-platinum certified studio albums have yielded numerous #1 hits, and his extensive touring schedule has bolstered his earnings to the high nine-figures.
"Fame comes with a price"- is a prophecy that comes true more often than not. Not everyone is equipped to deal with being a relative-unknown one day and a mega-celebrity the next.
The prophecy was no more self-fulfilling that in the case of Justin Bieber. Fame got to the young Bieber, and he crashed and burned. His myriad of felonies includes DUI, vandalism, and drug possession, to name a few.
As one of the most recognizable faces on the planet, the who's who of brands clamor to have Bieber's face be front-and-center of their marketing campaign.
The apparel brand Calvin Klein was one of the first (and the most prominent) to capitalize on Bieber's popularity and made him their brand ambassador in 2015.
He has been endorsed by a plethora of high-profile brands such as Proactiv and OPI.
