Justin Bieber is now 18 and should now be considered a man in the pop music industry. We have watched as this teenage heartthrob has wooed millions of young girls onstage. Will he embrace manhood, or miss his younger years?
When Justin Bieber wakes up in the morning, does he see the Man in the Mirror?
How fitting a question, considering that Justin's longtime idol is Michael Jackson, which he shared at Michael Jackson's Memorial service outside of Grauman's Chinese Theater in January.
After Justin Bieber has celebrated 18th birthday, this incredible milestone marks his transition from a teenage pop star to a man, who aspires to one day be like the King of Pop.
Justin Bieber was very surprised when he received his birthday present on the Ellen Degeneres Show. His manager, Scooter Braun, gave him the keys to a $100,000 sports car, which also happens to be eco-friendly - being an electric vehicle - which fits in very nicely with Justin's style.
Now that Justin has moved into the forefront of manhood, does that mean he has to give up having fun?
Justin Bieber is known for being a prankster, from his shenanigans back on the CSI set (story here), to his more recent debut on the season premiere of Punk'd on MTV, airing March 29, 2012. Let's just say that he pulls a huge prank on Taylor Swift, who happens to be one of the most humblest music celebrities out there.
Justin Bieber may now be grown up, but that doesn't mean that he has to stop having fun - as long as that fun is innocent and doesn't get anyone pregant.
According to ABC News, his accuser, Mariah Yeater, had filed a lawsuit against Justin, but has since agreed to settle the case out of court. All the while Justin Bieber has maintained his innocence, and that this story was completely fabricated to benefit from his fame.
While it is a shame that anyone is accused of such allegations, it is only more evidence for Justin's coming of age, since child stars typically uphold a squeaky-clean image, with no indication of sexual misconduct.
Fans of "The Bieb" can hope and pray that he keeps his purity until his future wedding day with Selena Gomez, unless he chooses a lucky alternate from the sea of screaming girls that fill his concert arenas. The latter choice is very unlikely, considering by his own testimony he goes straight from a performance to his escort vehicle at each venue, not stopping to mingle with fans, let alone have enough time to get anyone pregnant.
Justin Bieber can be seen next at the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards, airing on March 31, 2012, but he will not be going as a kid, because now he will now be going as a man.
