Prior to hitting super stardom, he would post YouTube videos of his performances, in various locations, throughout Canada. Since then, he signed a contract with the Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG). He was discovered by Scooter Braun, who is also his talent manager.
To date, Bieber has sold over 15 million albums, and he is a platinum-selling recording artist. All of this, he accomplished before turning 20. Due to his fan base and popularity, he has remained a fixture in tabloid news. When he first burst onto the music scene, he was portrayed as an angelic teen idol. However, in the past two years, he has become more and more rebellious.
One of his recent escapades involves graffiti painting while in Brazil to perform a concert. Apparently, the Brazilian police received a complaint regarding Bieber spray painting the former Hotel Nacional. In Brazil, this would be considered a misdemeanor without a permit. Bieber was given a permit for another location, which he and his entourage deemed to dangerous. So, they moved their art activities to the Hotel Nacional. Now, he is currently under investigation. If it turns out he didn't receive authorization, he could face vandalism charges.
The graffiti incident is the latest drama surrounding his trip to Brazil. On November 2nd Bieber was struck by a bottle thrown by a concertgoer during his live performance of 'Boyfriend' at Arena Anhembi in São Paulo. The incident caused Justin to drop his mic and storm off stage.
The Telegraph have obtained footage of the incident which clearly shows Bieber's fury at the water bottle incident:
