I think it’s pretty safe to say that Justin Bieber is one teenage heart throb that has gone from a cute, guitar-strumming YouTube sensation to a menacing, A-list superstar within just a matter of a few short years. Makes you feel old, doesn’t it?
Well, we have some more Bieber related news for you. According to Forbes magazine, Justin Bieber is now one of the top earning celebrities under 30. Whether were unsure to be scared about it or be channeling our inner beliebers to get excited, we do know that he is currently more successful than many of us will probably ever be.
Justin Bieber’s Net Worth as of 2018: $225 Million
With his infinite top hit songs and climbing fan base, he must be doing something right. Here’s a look as to how Bieber scored his 2015 net worth…
2009 – 2010
Bieber first began his journey to fame upon quickly becoming a growing Youtube sensation. After realizing his musical talent, Justin’s mother began posting videos of him singing covers of artists like Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. Those covers got so popular that they blew up the internet, causing him to gain numerous offers to meet and discuss record deals.
Eventually, young Bieber signed under Usher’s label and released his first single which you may recall being entitled “One Time” in May of 2009. Soon to follow came his album My World which sold 137,000 copies within a week. His song, “Baby”, made it onto Billboard‘s Top 10 in 2010. Following the initial success, Bieber released the album My World 2.0 that same year.
Let’s not forget Bieber’s popularity rising due to his first celeb girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Guess that’s one thing that didn’t pan out in success for Bieber.
2011 – 2012
2011 was an interesting year for Bieber, seeing as he somehow scored a deal to release his first concert documentary called Never Say Never. Earnings from the movie were $73 million at the box office that year. He was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal album at the Grammy’s that same year.
Additionally, he released the song “Boyfriend” in April of 2012, only to heighten his fame and appear on top charts yet again. Naturally, he had a tour which was dubbed the “Believe Tour” which went from September to December 2012, making a profit of $69.9 million.
2013 – 2014
Bieber soon went from being the good boy to the bad boy in April 2013 when he visited a museum that paid tribute to Anne Frank, saying she “would have been a Belieber”. Whoops. Later that year, he was caught publicly peeing in a janitor’s bucket as he screamed “F*** Bill Clinton!” Let’s also not forget when he egged his neighbors house and got arrested for a DUI in January of 2014.
We think everybody can agree that Bieber pulled a little bit of a Miley Cyrus during this time, but it definitely showed the world that he was ready to change his audience and possible even do a little bit of growing up.
Bieber released a hit single with Jack Ü, entitled “Where Are Ü Now” (good song, we must admit). He also made an appearance on Comedy Central for his very own Roast. He also has another hit single, “What Do You Mean”, which is a lead single from the upcoming album due to be released on November 13, 2015.
As of now, all we can say is that we’re actually pretty excited to see what comes next for not-so-little Bieber. We have to give him credit where credit is due. Besides, we can make fun of him all we want, but he’s the one rolling in $225 mill.
Bieber began on his Purpose World Tour, which started on March 9, 2016 in Seattle, Washington and is scheduled to end September 6, 2017 in Toronto, Canada. The tour was first announced in 2015 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In fact, after its announcement and due to popular demand additional shows were added onto the roster. Early showings were met with positive acclaim and praise for his smooth vocals and powerful dancing.
There hasn’t been any news on an album drop for 2017 yet, but fans are watching their social media feeds closely for even the slightest whisper of Bieber’s music.
Though welcomed, Justin Bieber plans on laying low for music’s biggest night Grammy Awards.
