It seems as if Justin Bieber has been around forever but given he's only turning 18 next week it can't be. Has he been around almost forever then? Well, he has been a part of the world's celebrity scene for 3 years and now he's about to become an adult.
Bieber was 15 when he and Mom, Patti Mallette hooked up with manger Scooter Braun and mentor Usher. His first big move was to put out his extended play 'My World'. He began touring and at 16 put out 'My World 2.0' with the massive hit Baby. That was all she wrote, he was a bona-fide superstar.
This birthday there hasn't been any big splash announcement about what he'll be doing. Hollywood Life suggested they had the goods on his birthday plans. However, essentially all they had was a 'source' that told them he was going to spend a relatively quiet birthday "with family and friends."
Justin Bieber's birthday raised money for charity
We do have more information on what he did last year on his 17th. Some might remember that in lieu of gifts he asked fans to donate 17 dollars to a charity called mycharity: water. They had a goal of raising $17,000 and he tweeted that "100% of all donations go directly to building clean water projects in developing countries." The donations got up to $17,000 - and kept going, making it all the way to over $47,000.
Other events from his 17th birthday included his talking about how much he was looking forward to his grandmother's cheesecake, a dinner out with Selena Gomez where he got frustrated and raised his middle finger at photographers (later apologizing) and having two records, 'Never Say Never: The Remixes' and 'My World 2.0' in the Billboard top five. He also left for a tour in the U.K. and on to Europe at that time.

How about this for his 18th birthday: Bieber tweeted this week that the new album he's working on, 'Believe', has a single coming out in March. How about on his birthday? It would make a great present for fans and Digital Journal predicts that is exactly what the maturing Bieber has in mind, to surprise fans with a present to them, a song, on his birthday.
