It’s official. The world has Bieber Fever. The 16-year-old pop star seems to be everywhere. If he and James Franco teamed up, they’d have no problem monopolizing the entertainment industry.
‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never’ (in 3D, of course) arrives in theaters Feb. 11. It’s rated G, so there’s that. The cynical side of me says these kid-concert movies are released so the handlers can make as much money as possible.
But the trusting side of me says these movies are a great way to show kids that anything is possible. Or in Justin Bieber’s words: Never Say Never.
The documentary follows his rise from street performer in the small town of Stratford, Ontario to Internet phenomenon to global superstar with a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. Clearly, the kid has a phenomenal drive to achieve his dreams, and that’s not a bad thing. Or is it?
I’d hate to see him end up in rehab for “exhaustion” – how much can these young stars be expected to take? I mean, that’s a big responsibility having such a huge empire resting on their shoulders.
Here’s his music video for ‘Never Say Never,’ featuring Jaden Smith of ‘The Karate Kid’ (a great movie, by the way).
