Justin Bieber’s rise to fame in 2009 proceeded at a rapid pace after he was discovered as a talented singer on YouTube covering popular songs. He broke the record as the first artist to perform 7 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and in 2010 his first studio album with the single Baby went triple platinum in the USA.
The young artist has released numerous hit songs like Somebody to Love, Never Say Never, Boyfriend, What Do You Mean, Sorry and Love Yourself. He has also worked with top artists such as R. Kelly, DJ Khaled, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, Future, Big Sean and Diplo. As a recording artist, he has also won numerous awards, including the American Music Awards 2010 and 2012 as Artist of the Year, the Grammy Award 2016 for Best Dance Recording, and the Latin Grammy Award 2016 for Best Urban Fusion and Performance for the Despacito remix in 2017. Bieber was named one of Forbes magazine’s top ten most powerful celebrities in 2011, 2012 and 2013. He is also the Guinness World Record holder for the youngest male artist to debut on Billboard Hot 100 with a number one single for his song What Do You Mean.
Not so many people know much about Bieber’s private life, and lately, there have been questions about the star’s sexuality and his relationship with the LGBTQ community. In the following, we will go through what we know.
Who Is Justin Bieber And How Did He Become A Singer?
The music star is the son of Jeremy Jack Bieber and Patricia Mallette. He was born in London on March 1, 1994, but grew up in Stratford, Ontario. He was raised by his mother, as they (his parents) were not married and Jack was never around. However, Bieber kept in touch with his father, and since he became a star, the two of them got along quite well.
He attended a French primary school in Stratford – the Jeanne Sauvé Catholic School – before attending St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford, Ontario, which he graduated in 2012. As he grew up, he developed an interest in music, which led him to learn to play piano, drums, guitar, and trumpet. At the age of 12, he sang the song So Sick by Ne-Yo in a singing contest where he finished second, and his mother, impressed with his singing, uploaded the video to YouTube, which turned out to be a habit in the following years.
Bieber’s talent was discovered online by Scooter Braun, a former marketing director of So So Def Recordings, who happened to watch his video, but was quite impressed with the boy’s talent, so he had to track him down and get his mother’s permission to take him to Atlanta, where he was signed by the Raymond Braun Media Group, a record label jointly owned by Braun and Usher Raymond.
Pattie, as his mother is affectionately known, is Justin Bieber’s biggest fan. She believed so much in her son and gave him the best she could afford, even though she didn’t earn that much. She even wrote a book in which she describes in detail the difficult times she went through in raising her son.
As fame grew, Justin Bieber is said to have fallen out with his mother because he saw her less often. In an interview, he explained that the situation was not so bad and that they would work things out. He has also been seen with his father ever since he posted a picture on Instagram which says that he would like to meet his father. Bieber’s father, Jeremy, has two other children named Jazmyn (born 2009) and Jaxon (born 2010).
This Is What His Dating History Looks Like
Justin Bieber is a womanizer and has been associated with over a dozen women; some he was really with, while others were just rumors. He has been with celebrities such as Sofia Richie, Yovanna Ventura, Selena Gomez, and Hailey Baldwin. Others he was supposed with include Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Kendall Jenner, Shanina Shaik, Miranda Kerr, Rita Ora, Barbara Palvin, Adriana Lima, Jayde Pierce, and Madison Beer.
His relationship with the star singer Selena Gomez was probably the most publicized affair of his previous relationships. Their relationship lasted for about two years and their fans nicknamed the couple “Jelena” before they separated in 2012. A reunion and possibly a walk down the aisle was speculated by fans and the media alike when they were seen a lot in late 2016, coupled with the fact that both had broken up with their respective partners at the time, which never happened.
Is Justin Bieber Currently Dating Or Married?
Justin Bieber is currently married to Hailey Baldwin. The lovebirds, who have been in a torn relationship since 2009, have finally decided to secretly tie the knots in a New York City courthouse in 2018. The couple got engaged in the summer of 2018, and months later they were secretly married.
In September 2019, the couple re-tied the waistband in a ceremony at the luxury resort montage Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, South Carolina. Baldwin is a Vogue model and daughter of American actor Stephen Baldwin. Mrs. Bieber started as a professional classical ballet dancer, but this dream was shattered by a foot injury. At the moment she is not doing badly as a model.
Why Do People Think He Is Gay?
From everything we said above, it is obvious that the singer is heterosexual and has been with women, now for the big question, why do people think he is gay? This is because Bieber is religious but not homophobic towards people from the LGBTQ community. In 2015, he addressed the issue of his sexuality when he published a statement on his Instagram page entitled “I’m not gay, but even if I were, that’s no insult”.
In 2018, Justin Bieber made headlines when he invited a gay fan to worship in his church when he complained to him about how difficult it had been for him to find a church that would accept his way.
