Find Out What Justin Bieber Talks About in His ‘Just Getting Started’ Book
Justin Bieber is a product of the digital age, but he still looks to a “classic” medium like a book to tell his story. He doesn’t merely rely on the power (or the art) of the tweet. The singer’s new book is a hybrid of a memoir and a coffee table tome, the perfect literary and pictorial combo for the ladies who love him. While he’s only 18, which pretty much makes him a child in our eyes, he has done enough in his almost two-decades on the planet to warrant another book detailing his experiences and exploits, as this is the follow up to 2010’s ‘Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story.’
So what topics does the Biebs tackle in ‘Just Getting Started?’
According to MTV, Biebs doesn’t dance around the topic or rely on subtext to discuss it, writing: “So let’s just get to it,” saying, “She had absolutely no evidence to verify her claim. It’s hard enough to be a teenager going through regular stuff, but doing it under the microscope of the press just amplifies what’s already awkward to begin with. That would be tough for any kid.” Tru dat, yo!
He also reveals that the constant glare of paparazzi flashbulbs and the pressures of fame nearly knocked him out of the entertainment business altogether. He was inspired to keep moving forward by a talk with NBA superstar Kobe Bryant. “For the first time, I think I understood that I will never be normal again,” he writes. “I want to grow up as an artist, as an entertainer, and I want to perfect it along the way. What I got from Kobe that night is that all I can do is strive to be my best, and the rest will come.”
The Biebs also discussed the backstage hijinks that take place on his tours. It’s business, yes, but he knows how to have a good time when trekking across the globe, which adds an air of levity to the stressful nature of touring. “For security reasons, we sometimes have to take a whole floor of a hotel,” he said, no doubt inspiring a legion of crafty and savvy Beliebers to figure out how to find said whole floors of hotels. “It doesn’t happen a lot, but when it does we often get into epic games of hide and go seek.” He also recruits certain members of the crew to form alliances with during the game.
What is this, ‘Survivor?’
Sounds like JB might be a whole mess o’ fun to tour with. Right, Beliebers?
