Justin Bieber‘s rapid ascension to teen superstar is unusual because he did it without a the backing of TV platform Disney used for Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, according to Rolling Stone. Justin’s manager Scott Braun told RS:
‘I get thousands of e-mails every week saying, ‘Please don’t go Disney.’ Kids made Justin. They made the fan pages, they spread the Twitters, they put up videos. I’m a good marketer, but not as good as them.’
From Melissa, Aixa & Tressa: A group of leaders got together a group of girls for an Atlanta My World buyout. We went to Borders, Target, Best Buy and Perimeter Mall. In the end all the girls bought over 100 CD’s.
Justin heard about it so he decided to show up at Perimeter and surprise everybody who came to support the buyout. He told everybody not to freak out to cause a scene. He went around and gave everybody a hug. He was really nice!
