Found this awesome video of how things really went down the other day when Justin was trying to leave his hotel to return to the US. The British fans are crazy for the Biebz. This just shows, it’s Justin’s world – and we’re just living in it.

Justin Bieber

This morning Justin Bieber was present in two of Twitter’s top ten global trending topics, a feat usually reserved for big events like award shows and major sports outings. Seeing as this is just any old Tuesday in February, what gives?

We asked our Facebook friends about the teen pop phenomenon this morning and the resounding answer was, “WHO?” Still, like him or not, Bieber is a true Internet star, who was plucked from in front of his webcam in Canada and thrown into the real music world, working with heavyweights like Usher and releasing his debut album on Island Def Jam Records. Now he is even taking over Lionel Richie’s singing duties in the ‘We Are The World’ remake. But what makes this 15-year-old stand out from the rest of the aspiring singers out there? Perhaps it’s his legion of die-hard young fans.

Bieber’s fame is not just buzz, either. Last November, Bieber’s debut album ‘My World’ debuted at #6 on the U.S. Billboard 200 selling 137,000 copies in its first week. At the time, the album was the strongest debut from a new artist before Susan Boyle pounced on the scene and subsequently decimated all competition the following month. Even more impressive, Bieber became the first solo artist in Billboard’s history to have at least 4 singles enter the Top 40– before the album even dropped.

These days you can regularly find Bieber presenting at the Grammy Awards or hobnobbing with superstars like Rihanna and Beyonce (both of whom he’s expressed having crushes on), but the true key to his success is never forgetting about the fans that thrust him into the spotlight in the first place (as evidenced by the riots he caused at a local mall last fall).

On Bieber’s original stomping grounds, the pop star is certainly a force to be reckoned with. His YouTube page has 136 million video views and nearly half a million active subscribers. If he sings it, they will watch and listen.

Facebook and MySpace
Currently, Bieber has 1,743,255 fans on Facebook and 484,193 friends over at MySpace (at time of publishing.) The latter is maybe not all that impressive in a relative sense (by comparison, larger artist Beyonce has 1,611,244), but as newer social networking sites continue to grow where MySpace once dominated that’s not too shabby at all. Here it is quality over quantity.

And as for Facebook? A simple post by Bieber with just a link to his YouTube channel and a sweet Valentines Day message received over 15,000 likes and 4,500 comments. He’s definitely a social media juggernaut.

Over 1.1 million strong, Twitter is by far Bieber’s greatest asset. As previously mentioned, this fervent network has the ability to start a riot, literally. Last fall, crowd control got out of hand at a mall in Long Island, NY and resulted in five people hospitalized with minor injuries and police arresting a vice president from Bieber’s record label. The police’s major grievance? Justin’s failure to tweet his fans to cooperate with authorities in their attempts at dispersing the crowd. That’s pretty major in our books.

Obviously Bieber owes a lot to the fact that the majority of his fans are young (and excitable) enough to devote unlimited amounts of time following his every tweet and musical note. The more we see Bieber around, the more we know he’s definitely the one to watch.


French fans are the best. I love this video.

From Lexi L: I went to Justin Bieber’s concert last night at the Hollywood Palladium. We camped out since the early morning. It was general admission, which means standing room only with my friend Val. We were all the way in the front, pushed up against the barricade hard. We were seeing Justin as close as we could, so we didn’t care about getting hurt. Then as he was performing his third song of the night ‘Never Let You Go’, punches to the face started being thrown. It got CRAZY.

Soon, fans were getting pulled out by security because so many were passing out due to no breathing room at all. I got pulled out because I couldn’t handle it anymore, then Val got pulled out about 5 minutes later. I started to get dizzy and couldn’t stop shaking, so Val & I went into the Medics room of the Hollywood Palladium. By the time his show ended, there were about 40 girls in there hurt. Two had seizures. One was using an oxygen tank.

Me & Val weren’t anywhere as close to that bad, but I couldn’t stop shaking & we both were hurt. So, in the end we went home fine. Luckily, before we got pulled, we got to see him perforn 3 songs up close and he saw our sign. We wish we could have seen the concert though. That would’ve been WAY more fun than being in the medics all night. But it was a very intense and crazy concert expierience. I couldn’t believe what I saw. It’s amazing how us Bieber Fans will go through ANYTHING, just to see Justin.

From Liz: ‘I went to Justin Bieber’s concert at the Palladium last night and a it was packed! 32 girls wen to the hospital and many more passed out! Other than that the concert was amaing, it as like Justin’s voice got better, there was also a preview of some songs from MY WORLD PART 2.0 (:’ BABY under!


Wow! Talk about a HUGE JUSTIN BIEBER DUDE fan. Where most guy Beliebers might be afraid to show their love for the Biebz this guy is loud and proud. The tattoo of JB on this leg is incredible.

The goal is for Justin to recognize his guy Beliebers because let’s face it, Justin never really shows much love to his guy fans. Well mission accomplished as Justin retweeted the video it to all his 15 million followers after Jeremy forwarded the video to him. #REPRESENT!


At 10AM earlier this morning Chilean Beliebers congregated outside the Hotel W in Santiago to welcome the Biebz but unfortunately it doesn’t look like JB was anywhere in sight. So don’t worry, Justin wasn’t attacked. Chile loves their Bieber. 🙂 The concert is tomorrow night.



Debhani Guzman Torres

You may recall the video of Justin Bieber fans going hysterical when they found out his September 30 concert in Mexico was sold out.

The Biebs certainly hasn’t forgotten it, and now he’s on a mission to locate a young female fan from the footage who seemed to take the disappointment particularly hard.

The singer just posted the video, taken last month at a Monterrey, Mexico ticket booth, and tweeted,

“need everyone’s help. we have LESS than 24 hours. we need to find this girl.. she is at the 30 sec mark. HELP! thanks.”

Bieber was clearly moved by the girl’s emotional reaction, and wants to make sure she gets to his show.


Justin must have seen this video really late for him to tweet it now. Fortunately she has been found. Her name is Debhani Guzman Torres and she now has tickets to the concert. Yay!
