From the jungle of anything goes-tainment Bieber shot to the top and then out of the ballpark altogether. He reached upper echelons of fame with breakneck speed, collecting album purchases as fast as the latest installment of OMG Cat collects pageviews. How did it happen? Is this clean-skinned all-American celeb one of the luckiest kids on the planet or does he possess some kind of phenomenal talent only squealing teens appear to be capable of recognising?
