New Delhi: He is just 19, but has become the most followed person in Twitter. This is a unique achievement for anyone under 20, especially when you have beaten people like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry in the race to the top. The hit singer is the heartthrob of millions and remains in the news for all sorts of reasons.
Last month, it was reported that he is having an affair with Rihanna. The teen sensation was said to have cheated on his on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez towards the beginning of their relationship with the 'Umbrella' hitmaker.
Lately, Bieber has started to shed his image of a bad boy. It was evident the way he condemned the death of a photo-journalist who was chasing his car, "While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim," the 'Boyfriend' singer said in a statement.
Bieber's popularity leads him into trouble at times. Last year, an imprisoned man whose infatuation with Justin Bieber included a tattoo of the pop star on his leg has told investigators in New Mexico that he hatched a plot to kill the singer, according to documents filed in a New Mexico court. An affidavit filed in Las Cruces said Dana Martin told investigators he persuaded a man he met in prison and the man's nephew to kill Bieber, along with Bieber's personal bodyguard and two others not connected to the pop star.
Despite all the hue and cry about Justin Bieber's attitude, he remains one of the most influential pop stars in today's world. Here is a playlist of his most popular songs on his 19th birthday.
