Justin Bieber's fans are not only starry-eyed teen girls. The 16-year-old has amassed quite a following of fans and one such listener is none other than basketball great Shaquille O'Neal. At a July 27 concert in Phoenix, O'Neal took the stage and sang a few lines for the teen heartthrob, proving that Bieber has a way of transcending many different demographics. The young Bieber has been out on the road promoting his My World releases.
Bieber is also head-to-head with country singing sensation Taylor Swift in a Bowling Hall of Fame Showdown. Fans are encouraged to vote in the competition and choose a celebrity that will become part of bowling history. The polls have been open to the public since July 12 and a winner will be announced in the Aug. 23 issue of OK! Magazine.
While it may be hard to believe that Justin Bieber is already writing down his life's story, he has accomplished quite a lot already in his 16 years. Bieber's musical successes came by way of YouTube, where he routinely posted performances and gained a steady following of online fans just a few years ago. As it turns out, his videos also caught the eye of a Def Jam executive, who in turn introduced the talents of Bieber to Usher. A 15-year contract with Def Jam was quickly drawn up and Bieber was suddenly out of YouTube territory and into the big leagues.
The pop star's very first single "One Time" arrived in May 2009. The ballad had no trouble reaching platinum status and the resulting six-song album My World climbed to number six on the Billboard 200 chart. Only a short time after its release Bieber returned with the second part of the album, My World 2.0. The release reached the very top of the Billboard 200 chart, placing Bieber in superstar territory in only a short period of time.
There is no arguing with the fact that Justin Bieber is one of pop music's brightest stars. Thanks to his frequent video updates on YouTube, Bieber is now a superstar to many fans from around the world... including Shaquille O'Neal. Don't miss seeing Bieber perform live on a stage near you.
