Justin Bieber - "My World" MAG

On November 17, 2009, Justin Bieber, a 15-year-old discovered on YouTube, came out with his first album. Island Records and the pop star Usher helped young Justin put together “My World.” Bieber has quickly won over the hearts of many young girls because of his adorable smile and innocent stage presence. The CD is mostly upbeat, happy songs of love for and admiration of a certain girl in the singer's life.

His most popular song, “One Time,” is by far the best here and will make listeners sing along. It describes how he felt when he met a girl and how she is now his “one love.” Another great song is “Down to Earth,” which displays the artist's strength and talent. Although not specifically about love, it conveys the struggles people face, including divorce, and the importance of compromises. The next track, “Love Me,” is familiar since it is Bieber's cover of the song by The Cardigans. The lyrics have been ­altered to fit the life of a 15-year-old and have a somewhat techno genre feel. I feel like at my age, 17, I can relate to these songs more than some of the others on the CD.

The majority of the songs are easy to become a fan of, but a few are not as catchy or appealing. The lyrics of “Bigger,” about a young player who has grown up to find love, are ­confusing and childish, and Bieber's voice sounds very high-pitched. “First Dance” ­begins with an unknown rapper and then introduces Bieber, who sings about dancing with his date, “tasting her lip gloss,” and having to be home by nine. This song will only appeal to very young kids, even younger than Justin.

Throughout the CD Bieber displays a number of annoying traits, unfortunately: two songs begin with him whispering “Mafia,” and he refers to himself by his nickname, “JB,” in every song.

The cute and talented Bieber has been very successful in both the United States and his home, Canada. I am glad that we now have a young artist who is truly innocent, and has not (yet) been changed by fame and money. I am a fan of the image he portrays. I look forward to more performances, songs, and success by Bieber.

I dont care what other people think about him, but I do like him. He is adorable and I can relate to some of his songs. U cant judge a person only by their music bc none of us really know him. Even though he may seem bad, he may not actually be that way but its ur opinions.

Yeah! I agree but his music is kind of catchy and let's face it, at least his music is better than Rebecca Black's songs.( No offence to Rebecca or her fans; I'm not a hater but I am not a fan either.) P.S. I have no idea why my other comment is underlined... :D

I am also not very fond of Justin. Though many people adore him, I don't. Not saying that I'm one of those people who are like "ZOMGZ U MUST DAI!" His music just is not pleasing to me. Too mushy, too techno.

Yes, he writes them now. It was stated  in the special on the channel "E!" called "Justin Bieber: My World."

Justin Bieber is a good singer, thats true, but his voice is a little high...and, some songs are good, some are bad...in my opinion, his industry is OK. Also, all the girls falling for him is just a little gross. He is cute, but COME ON. Most of the girls dont even know him.

This is an awsome article and yes he is a good singer.even though schnoodlebar thinks his looks are off-topic(which it is but who cares) I have to agree with kera48 that he is cute but I do care more about his music. Just saying. Especially the song Baby.

I don't think Justin is all that great. I agree with the article when it says he has some annoying traits. (Ex- Referring to himself as JB). I really like this article beacuse it tells it how it is. Good job and keep writing!
