You may or may not be a fan of Justin Bieber, but if there’s one thing you can’t deny it’s the fact that he made himself a career. It’s been almost a decade since Scooter Braun stumbled upon a very young and ambitious boy on YouTube, his username at the time being kidrauhl. And in that time, Justin Bieber became a household name, gaining both fans and haters.
Our story. Our awards. Our songs. Our albums. Our tour. Our journey…just beginning. This is forever. Thank u. Love.

It’s safe to say that the haters had little effect on the young Canadian’s career. Since 2008, he has managed to break countless records, win hundreds of awards (including a long-overdue Grammy) and now holds many titles which no one can take away from him. Justin Bieber is most certainly a name that you’ll keep hearing for many years to come, and it’s definitely a name that will appear in the history books decades from now. All of this is thanks to his fanbase, his loyal Beliebers.
In this article, we bring to you just some of the many faithful Beliebers around the world that stood by Justin and helped him reach his most wildest dreams and goals in life, and we ask the about the impact that Justin has had on their lives.
Sabrina | 15 | Indiana, US: “I love Justin because he’s been there for me through everything and his music has helped me through a lot. I’ve been there for him through everything these past seven years! Through all the drama with girlfriends and just everything that has happened. I never thought about leaving him or the fandom anytime throughout his difficult/troubling times. I was disappointed in him, sure, but I never thought about leaving him. If I am in a bad mood or am feeling upset all I have to do is listen to Justin’s music and I feel 100% better!
Justin has made a huge impact on my life ever since 2009! He has never had a negative impact on my life, it’s always been positive!! He’s showed me so many things like: don’t listen to the haters, don’t let people bring you down, if you have a dream then chase it, and just things like that! He’s such a positive influence in my life and I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better role model! I will forever be a Belieber”
Courtney | 14 | UK: “I’ve supported Justin from the beginning, I still continue to, and I always will, I’m literally stuck here, I can’t unstan him. I love him because he has such an incredible big heart, and a loving personality, he’s such a dork but he’s so kind, sweet and caring, I mean his looks is just a bonus. honestly his smile just brightens my day, he’s so adorable. Justin is so appreciative and loving towards all his beliebers. He’s crazy talented and his music has inspired so many people to keep going and to stay positive through their tough times, if I’m having a bad day his music can help me to remain positive, and remember that it will all be alright, his music is there for me when no one else is :)”
Merjema | 14 | Bosnia and Herzegovina: “I love Justin Bieber because he changed my life for the better. I’ve been following him since 2009, and I’ve always been there for him, just as he has always been there for us Beliebers. He taught me to believe in my dreams, my hopes, and myself. I’ve spent countless late nights thinking about Justin, whether I’ll ever go to his concert, whether I’ll ever meet him. I’ve cried many times because he’s never even herd of me, and he probably won’t. But that’s okay, I love him so much, and I know everything about him.
I know how he was a poor kid on the street with nothing but a bottle of water, his guitar, and a big dream- to make enough money for himself and his mother. Justin’s talent came through, and in a short while be became the most famous singer in the world. His fame spread. Over the years everything changed. His voice changed, his appearance changed. Many have left, and many have joined this biggest fandom in the world. The thing that makes me the proudest Belieber is that this fame didn’t change his soul, and that’s why I still love him. One more time- I love you Justin. Once a Belieber, always a Belieber.
Natalie | 23 | UK: “I love Justin Bieber because he’s talented, generous and kind. He is always giving back whether it’s donating money to charity or meeting fans who are terminally ill. He has a good heart and appreciates his fans. I became a belieber in 2010 after hearing his song ‘One Time’ on TV. At the time I was struggling with self harm, depression and I was experimenting with drugs and alcohol because of personal problems but becoming a belieber, I gained a new identity and I made new friends with other beliebers all over the world.
Justin inspired me to be a better person and I enrolled in college, stopped using drugs and I had the courage to get the help I needed. I found happiness in supporting Justin and seeing him in concert. I would attend Bieber buyouts and even started an organisation to help other less fortunate beliebers get tickets to his believe world tour which raised over £5000. I now spend my spare time running a UK fan Twitter account for Justin which is @UK_Biebernews I could never not be a Belieber, it’s a part of who I am! And I’ll always support and respect Justin”
