If you’re looking for a master class in how to become one of the most famous people on the planet, look no further than 25-year-old Justin Bieber.

While many other teen stars (such as Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers and Zac Efron) built up their celebrity status by working hard on popular TV shows, Justin shot straight to the top by using social media.

Many years ago, Justin uploaded videos of himself on YouTube, performingcovers of his favourite songs at home. He just saw it as a bit of fun for friends and family, but when music manager Scooter Braun saw one of the videos, he flew to Justin’s home town of Ontario (Canada) to sign him up. Justin was just 13.

Shortly after, Justin was flown to the US. He eventually started working with R&B superstar Usher. Justin's debut album My World was released in 2009. But all the time, Justin continued to build his fan base on his YouTube account, where some of his original home videos can still be found, and where he continues to post music. “I wasn’t sending mixtapes or anything like that to record labels,” he told us when we met him on his promotional tour for his latest film Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. “I was just doing regular stuff at home and I just posted videos online randomly. I would never be here if it wasn’t for the internet and YouTube.”
