Justin Bieber has come a long way since he was discovered by his manager Scooter Braun in 2008. He turns 19 today and to celebrate, here are our 19 favorite things about the Biebs. Happy birthday, Justin!
His first two singles “One Time” and “One Less Lonely Girl” introduced the Biebs to the world, but it wasn’t until this 2010 release featuring Ludacris that his star power lit up the world. It was hard to go anywhere without hearing this track on the radio.
