Justin Bieber Talks His Rise to Fame and Love of Girls on 'The Early Show' (VIDEO)
A superfan of Justin Bieber got the chance to interview him on 'The Early Show' (Weekdays, 7AM on CBS) about his meteoric rise to fame in 2010. Bieber was very humble about his early beginnings on YouTube, and how quickly things moved from there.
"I just started posting videos online and then it just got to the point where they wanted to move me out to Atlanta and start recording songs," Bieber said.
Bieber also talked about the relationship he has with his mentor in the industry, Usher. "I call him all the time," he said. "I ask for advice. We hang out. He's probably the closest person to me in the music business."
Bieber's manager Scooter Braun, who discovered him on YouTube, arranged the first meeting between the pop stars. Usher immediately came on board to help represent Bieber, helping him land his recording contract.
When asked how he deals with the constant attention from his female fans, Bieber flashed a smile. "It's great, you know," he said. "I'm sixteen and I love girls."
