‘One Time’ was followed by the release of singles such as ‘One Less Lonely Girl, ‘Love Me’ and ‘Favourite Girl’.
During a promotional tour, Justin Bieber was due to appear at a shopping mall in Long Island, but the visit had to be canceled when an unexpected crowd of over 3,000 turned up and threatened to breach safety restrictions.
A number of Bieber’s fans suffered minor injuries n the foray that ensued. The vice-president of Island Records was arrested over the incident, as he was reported to have disadvantaged the police’s crowd control efforts.
Similarly, Scooter Braun was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance in relation to the event.

Bieber was also chosen as a presenter at the 52nd Grammy Awards.
Bieber was also asked to perform on the re-recording of ‘We Are the World’, which was sold to raise money for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

In 2012, the album Believe sold 374,000 copies in its first week, before the disappointment of the following year’s Journals, a downbeat album without a hit single.
Bieber made a big comeback in 2015 with Purpose, which became his fifth million-selling record in the U.S. by the end of the year.
Following the release of Changes in February 2020, the 25-year-old became the youngest artist to have seven albums reach the top spot on the Billboard Hot 200, breaking the record once held by a 26-year-old Elvis Presley.
Some of Bieber’s hit songs include:
Bieber’s first single, “One Time,” went certified platinum in his native Canada shortly after its release in May 2009.
Bieber broke into the Billboard Top 10 in early 2010 with “Baby,” which also featured rapper Ludacris.
“All I Want for Christmas Is”

Bieber had another hit single in April 2012 with “Boyfriend,” which appeared on his 2012 album Believe.
“Beauty and a Beat”
In October 2012, amid controversy over his offensive behavior, Bieber released another Top 10 hit with this party anthem featuring Nicki Minaj.
“Where Are Ü Now”
Bieber nailed a summer Top 10 hit with the Diplo and Skrillex collaboration “Where Are Ü Now” in 2015, helmed by R&B songwriter Poo Bear. In 2016, Bieber landed his first Grammy, winning for “Where Are Ü Now” in the category of Best Dance Recording.
“What Do You Mean?”
In October 2015, Bieber landed his first No. 1 single with “What Do You Mean?,” also produced with Poo Bear.
In January 2017, Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Luis Fonsi released the hit “Despacito” on YouTube; the video soon became the most-watched video of all time on YouTube. A few months later, after hearing the song in a nightclub in Colombia, Justin Bieber asked Fonsi to collaborate on a remix. Their song went on to hit the number one spot on the Hot 100; after 16 consecutive weeks in the top spot, it broke the all-time record as the longest-standing chart-topping song in August 2017.
“I Don’t Care”
Thanks in part to a surreal video, Bieber enjoyed more success with this spring 2019 collaboration with Ed Sheeran, a breezy track that went to No. 1 in several countries and topped out at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The pop star has had a series of link-ups and relationships.
However, the longest and the most talked about one continues to be the one he shared with singer Selena Gomez
The two first started dating in 2011 but called it off the following year, over Bieber, reportedly, cheating on her with Victoria Secret’s model Barbara Palvin.
Nothing was confirmed on this with Bieber and Palvin denying the rumors of any possible romance.
Gomez and Bieber continued to have an on-off relationship, with Bieber seeing other ladies while on a break with Gomez. He was linked to models like Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr, and also went on to date American model Hailey Baldwin.
The model and he shared an on-off relationship between 2014 and 2016, however, they abruptly split, given Bieber’s budding romance with Sofia Richie in 2016.
Hailey Baldwin met Justin Bieber for the first time in 2009 and calling the introduction awkward is most definitely an understatement.
After they outgrew their young teenage years, and Justin subsequently said goodbye to his signature flow, the pair became “good friends”—so much so that they even shared a New Year’s kiss.
Justin proposed to Hailey in July 2018 after an intense two-year break-up in the Bahamas and they wed in a New York City courthouse just two months later.
The Biebers hosted a second wedding in September 2019, where Hailey wore three custom bridal looks.
HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH
Bieber has described himself as a faithful adherent of Christianity, said he communicates with God via prayer, and that
He reflected his faith in a music video with Brandon Burke, titled “#iPledge”, in which he talks about God’s forgiveness.
Bieber was baptized on January 9, 2014, by Pentecostal pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong Church, New York, after a born-again experience.
He has described Lentz as a good friend.
When asked how he wants to raise his children, Bieber said, “I’m a Jesus follower.
I just want to be led by the Holy Spirit.”
Many of Bieber’s tattoos have religious significance including the medium-sized cross on his chest and a tiny cross under his eye.
Bieber also covered up the “Son of God” text tattooed on his abdomen with a large design that features two angels, gothic arches, a skeleton and a serpent.
Regarding sexual abstinence, Bieber told music magazine Rolling Stone in 2011, “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them.” He added that he does not “believe in abortion”, and that it is “like killing a baby”.
When asked about the case of abortion with regard to rape, however, he said, “I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
His view on sexual orientation is quoted as “everyone’s own decision”, and he has contributed to the It Gets Better Project, a non-profit group aiming to prevent suicide among LGBT youth.
Bieber has struggled with mental health issues, particularly depression and anxiety, at various points during his career.
He has generally been open about these issues.
On January 8, 2020, Bieber announced on his Instagram that he had been diagnosed with Lyme disease, saying that speculation by other people that he looked like he was on drugs was false.
He also revealed that he has infectious mononucleosis, which affected his neurological and overall health.
