31 Photos of Justin Bieber That Will Remind You That He Was Once Just a Cute Little Boy
There's no question in my mind that Justin Bieber is an immense musical talent, but that fact often gets pushed to the side when I hear about yet another one of his irresponsible antics. Sure, no one is perfect, but the Biebs hasn't exactly had the best track record in the past few years. Instead of his music, the press has mostly focused on his crazy behavior, such as reckless driving, mocking a fan, and, of course, that infamous "peeing in a bucket" incident. Since the Biebs is going through some growing pains right now, let's take a look back on a simpler time for the young star. Check out these adorable photos of Bieber at the very beginning of his career.
The Biebs shared this baby pic on his Instagram page.
I know what it looks like, kids, and don’t worry — 2008 Bieber would never flip off the camera. He would, however, flash a very awkward peace sign.
Here’s the Biebs belting out one of his original tunes. Perhaps he’s belting out the chorus of “One Time.”
Purple was Bieber’s color back in the day.
Here’s him with his purple scarf.
And his purple American Apparel hoodie. (Note: I also own and adore this hoodie.)
Annnnd another purple scarf.
He also liked hats.
And belting songs out.
Usher took Bieber under his wing as his protege when he was first starting out in the industry.
Remember that hair? So perfect.
Before he palled around with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Bieber snapped this pic with their big sister Kim Kardashian.
Here’s him accepting the Artist of the Year award at the 2010 American Music Awards.
Here’s him hugging Usher after the big win.
Clearly, he was delighted to take home the prize.
Here’s the Biebs with his 2010 memoir First Step To Forever: My Story. If only he knew how much else he would do, he may have held off on the book.
Bieber rocks some very thick glasses on the red carpet. (The hair is still flawless.)
Here’s him doing bird calls.
And here’s the Biebs rocking some really cool shades!
Phew. Thank God he’s in the back seat.
Never forget the Bieber is killer on the drums. Here’s him drumming at nine years old.
This was the kind of stuff that made the pre-teens swoon.
The Biebs holds up his debut EP.
Here’s him giving the thumbs sign. Everything is going to be A-OK!
Just keep on working it.
And maybe put back on a shirt?
No complaints, but…
