Justin Bieber: Can Good Looks Really Get You Anywhere In This World?

If somebody surveyed all the teenage girls in Canada and the Usa asking who the fastest growing male singer was, most of them would probably answer Justin Bieber.

Justin is currently 15 years old, born on March 14th, 1994. He was born in Stratford, Ontario. Justin first started singing in 2007, and was discovered Scooter Braun, who quickly became his manager. Justin's manager flew him to Atlanta, Georgia to sing for Usher. When Usher heard him singing he was very impressed. Antonio L.A. Reid at Island Records signed Justin to Island Records in October 2008.

Justin's first single was "One Time", and it quickly grew to the top of the charts.

I myself listened to the song, and although I found it was an okay song, I didn't worship it like lots of other girls I know did.

Wanting to know why this song had done so well, I decided to find out through some people I knew who were absolutly crazy about him.

I talked to twenty girls, aged 12 to 14, and found some similarities in their answers.

When asked why they loved him so much, this was the response I got.

16 of the people said they loved him for his 'killer looks',
2 of the people said they loved him because his singing 'came from his heart',
And the remaining 2 people said the liked him because his looks and singing.

This information pretty much informs us that even if about 80% of your fans only like you because of your looks, you can still make it far in the world.

So, with all this information, you can probably figure it out: Without the good looks, Justin probably wouldn't be quite so far in his singing career.

He has a small portion of talent or else he would not be able to make it as big as he has been in my opinion.

i do feel that most of his popularity comes from his looks though.

the same thing happened with jesse mccartney when i was little. not so great talent but good looks.

Ça fait tellement du bien d’aimer les gens qu’on aime, que ça finit par faire mal. Je sais pas comment on survit a ça. Non franchement, je sais pas. LOL (laughing out loud) ®, Lola.

Hmm good initiative but I think a survey should be on more people to find a more specific statistic. True that many are superficial today, though.

nowadays in society wherever you are is based somewhat on looks whether your in school or at the mall shopping or on your way to become famous most of the "hot" or "good looking" girls are the ones that get approached as is with guys. talent is also a big thing you look at there are some people who arent all that good looking but have like outstanding moves or voices so all in all it balanced out on the scale but if you are considered to be better looking odds are somewhat in your favor.

Weeeeelllll.....Miley IS pretty lame. She only became famous because her daddy was a one-hit wonder.

Justin Bieber is NOT all that. Nor is he a "hottie", no matter WHAT J-14 and Tiger Beat and other bubblegum-pop magazines say. (not to say I don't read them...I'm a teen girl too!) But still.

I don't know who's "lamer", but at least Miley has already turned to the bad side of celebrityishness (hello, "Can't Be Tamed"?).

Well, in the video he is practically sexually harassing that girl, he keeps getting up in her face and being all "kiss me" and when she makes it quite clear that he needs to leave her alone, he gets worse. It might be "acting" but still, the fact that he would portray that as being "cool" is disgraceful and wrong.
