In less than one year’s time, Justin Bieber has gone from YouTube sensation to world wide phenomenon after Usher battled a bout of insomnia by falling deep into an internet link jumping blackhole, discovering and then signed the 15-year-old to Island Records. Not only has Justin become a fixture on the radio, but also on the bedroom walls of tween girls everywhere — one of the most essential (and toughest) demographics to crack.
Now, he’s partnered up with 1-800-Flowers in creating the One Less Lonely Girl bouquet (named after his song) just in time for Valentine’s Day. You know, back in my day, all it took was dropping a one-sided Power Rangers card into a desk-mounted “mailbox” to snag a date. Ah, how times have changed.

PopWrap: How did you get involved with 1-800-Flowers’ One Less Lonely Girl bouquet? 
Justin Bieber: My manager’s the one that set it up and I thought it was great idea. I’m all for it since it’s definitely not a bad thing to bring a girl flowers.

PW: Do you have a Valentine this year? 
Justin: I have one person that I’ll be sending flowers to and that’s my mom. She’s been there since the beginning and has given up a lot for me, I’m very blessed to have her. She likes roses, so I think I might send her the One Less Lonely Girl bouquet.

PW: You’re only 15 years old, so have you had a chance to really lavish a girl in presents? 
Justin: I haven’t been able to be as romantic as probably I will be able to be, but I think that being a gentleman is what matters; taking them out to a nice dinner, open the doors, stuff like that. Flowers are great, but love is better – you know what I mean?

PW: Do you have any crushes right now? 
Justin: I have crushes, but they’re all too old. Like Beyonce – she has a husband, I might get shot. [laughs] I went up to give Beyonce a hug at the Grammys and Jay-Z said, watch out buddy! He was kidding, but you know…

PW: Now you’re about to kick off a world tour, what can people expect? 
Justin: My show is developing more and more. I started with 2 dancers and a DJ and we’ve worked our way up. I’ve got 5 dancers now and we’re trying to make it more and more exciting. But it’s all about the vocals and making the audience have a good time.

PW: You’ve had a pretty exciting couple of years yourself, can you process everything that’s happened? 
Justin: Yeah, you know, it’s crazy. This whole thing has been amazing — to present at the Grammys and be a part of “We Are The World” has been crazy. And last year was even crazier. I mean, I got to perform for the president!

PW: You have a new album (“My World: Part 2”) dropping March 23, looking ahead are there any artists you’d like to collaborate with on part 3?
Justin: I would like to work with Taylor Swift. She’s an amazing writer. And, well, you know … Beyonce.

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber will undertake a monumental job next week. He — or should it be said, his voice — will be heard at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. The announcement that the song We Are the World, Haiti will be revealed during the opening means Justin Bieber will be right in first place in his home country.

Canadian Justin Bieber from Stratford, Ontario was chosen to sing the first line of We Are The World, Haiti, much to the delight of his fans. So, technically, and even though he got that line way before it was decided that the song would be released at this international event, Justin Bieber is going to the Olympics. His singing and supporting the continued relief efforts for Haiti has been prominent during the past few weeks. Not only was Bieber involved in the the We Area The World Concert but the 15-year-old was also on hand the ‘SOS Help Haiti Concert (did you see that video – awesome to watch.)

Fans wonder if Justin Bieber will attend the Olympics in the flesh. No official announcement has been made that the singer will be heading to Canada to enjoy some winter weather and watch the best of winter sports. In addition, Justin is so hot, Olympics officials may need to concern themselves with the idea that Bieber might melt the ice if he shows up.

Justin Bieber is currently one of the hottest young artists in the world. The 15 year old has impressed teenage girls the world over and label boss Usher with his soulful voice.
And on his recent trip to the UK MTV grabbed a chat….
MTV: So Justin what can we expect from the album My World?
My World is actually going to be a lot of fun, it was so much fun recording, I think it shows that I was having fun recording it and I think you guys will have fun listening to it. It’s got a kinda r ‘n’ b/pop feel.
Tell us how you got signed and a little about your relationship with Usher?
So, basically I was twelve years old and I was posting videos online just for my friends and family and other people started watching it and I started getting a lot of hits and views
Then a manager contacted me and ended up flying us down to Atlanta where I met Usher and was then flown out to LA and Memphis to meet with Justin Timberlake. We ended up signing with Usher at Island Def Jam.
He’s a great guy just as I met him I actually sang him my own song You Got It Bad. I was a little nervous but it was a lot of fun.
It must have been amazing at twelve, what did you think did you think your whole world was going to change or was it just a bit of a dream?
Well at the time I really didn’t know what was going on, I was kind of like ‘pinch me I’m dreaming!’ It was definitely a big change but I’m having a lot of fun.
Usher starred in the for video One Time…
He didn’t star in it I starred in it! He made a co-appearance, in my video. He wouldn’t star in my video, that wouldn’t make sense right?
What kind of advice has he given you?
Usher gave me a lot of advice and I think the best advice he’s given me is basically just to stay humble through this whole experience.
Now is it true there was a bidding war between Usher and Justin Timberlake?
Well I don’t really know about it all I know is that they were going back and forth. So, basically I think Justin and Usher both wanted to sign me it was kind of like a bidding war, it was kind of like they were in a ring and Usher knocked him out so…
Have you seen J.T. since you decided to go with Usher?
I haven’t seen Justin Timberlake since the whole deal went down but I think he’d have no hard feelings. He seems like a really nice guy, he seems cool.
What’s the craziest fan experience you’ve had?
I had one of here just a few days ago and we were driving and these little girls they were running in front of the vehicles. They nearly got hurt- we were driving and they were still running in front of the vehicle. So that was probably one of the craziest.
Tell us about the accident you had on stage where you were supporting Taylor Swift in the UK, you broke your foot didn’t you?
Yes! I actually broke my foot on stage performing with Taylor Swift I was opening up for her which was a lot of fun- although it definitely wasn’t fun when I broke my foot. I was running down stage and there was a little dip in the stage and I rolled my ankle and broke it and I finished the song but yeah, it was still a great night.
Would you like to work with Taylor in the future maybe have a duet with her or something?
I would love to work with Taylor in the future she’s a great writer, song writer, musician, singer so she’s an all round great person, so I think it would be great.
