In just two short years, Justin Bieber has gone from a kid with a dream on YouTube to a jetsetting superstar selling out huge arenas. J-14 has been along for the ride since the very beginning, and couldn't be happier for Justin.
We were the first magazine to ever interview him and when he visited our office on May 18, 2009, he wrote a note showing J-14 and our readers the love. Take a look:
We love that Justin referenced his MySpace -- he didn't even have an official website yet! From all of us here at J-14, Happy 17th Birthday, Justin!
Fun Facts About Justin:
-If Justin wasn't a famous singer, he'd design buildings. "I'd like to be an architect," he says. "That would be cool. I like drawing."
-Justin is a big fan of sweets -- his favorite candy is Sour Patch Kids.
-Before Justin was known for his signature hair flip, he broke it down for J-14.
