Justin Bieber Will Be Honored at Tribeca Film Festival
The Biebs global domination of 2012 continues. With 'Boyfriend' all over the place and a clip of the video set to premiere on 'The Voice' tomorrow night (April 16), Justin Bieber is completely dominating the media landscape. Not even the Tribeca Film Festival, held every year in New York City, is immune to Bieber Fever.
Both The Biebs and his manager Scooter Braun (also the manager of the Wanted) are being honored with a 2012 Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award, which celebrated "leading disruptive innovators" who have impacted the worlds of business, technology, arts and entertainment. That certainly sounds like our boy Bieber and his career guider Braun.
The terrific twosome "will be honored for the historic discovery of Bieber on YouTube and his subsequent social media rise," according to a post on the festival's official website. The festival obviously looks at trends in the all media, including social, and Bieber is certainly emblematic of web-created superstardom.
Congrats to the Biebs and Braun for this recognition. They will reportedly be on hand to accept the award in person. This year's TFF runs from April 18 through April 19.
