He is the child of Jeremy Jack Bieber and Pattie Mallette, who separated shortly after Bieber was born. Both women were 18 years old at the time of Bieber's birth. Pattie raised Bieber as a single mother in low-income housing while working a slew of menial office jobs. Mallette was assisted in raising her kid by her stepfather Bruce and mother Diane. Bieber and his father have been in communication. French-Canadian, Irish, English, Scottish, and German origins are among Bieber's lineage. Bieber went at Bedford Public School and Jeanne Sauvé Catholic School, two Stratford French-language immersion primary schools. He attended Stratford Northwestern for grades 7 and 8. Kim Booker, a former educator, frequently talked about her happy recollections of having Bieber as a pupil and was mentioned in several interviews. He went to St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford, where he earned a 4.0 GPA upon graduating in 2012.
He studied trumpet, guitar, drums, and piano as a child. In an early-2007 local singing competition in Stratford, Bieber, then 12 years old, performed Ne-Yo's "So Sick" and took second place. For the benefit of their relatives and friends, Mallette uploaded a video of the performance on YouTube. Bieber's fame on the website increased as she kept posting videos of herself performing covers of different R&B tunes. Using a rented guitar, Bieber busked performances in front of the Avon Theatre steps the same year during the tourist season. On the steps of the Avon Theatre, young talents continue to aspire to be like their idols.
Former So So Def Records marketing executive Scooter Braun accidentally clicked on one of Justin Bieber's 2007 YouTube videos while looking for footage of another musician. Impressed, Braun found the theatre where Bieber was playing, found Bieber's school, and at last got in touch with his mother Mallette, who had been reluctant at first due to Braun's Judaism. She recalled praying, "I gave him to you, God." God, you don't want this Jewish child to be Justin's guy, do you? You could give me a Christian man, a Christian label." Church leaders, nevertheless, persuaded her to allow Bieber to go with Braun. When Bieber was thirteen, Braun took him to Atlanta so they could record demo recordings. A week later, Bieber started performing for Usher.
Bieber said on December 24, 2019, that he will be starting his fourth concert tour in 2020 and releasing his fifth studio album. "Yummy," the album's lead single, was made available on January 3, 2020. It came into the Billboard Hot 100 at number two. The 10-part YouTube Originals documentary series Justin Bieber: Seasons, which centred on a number of issues including his life after taking a break from music, marriage, getting ready for new songs, and his fight against Lyme illness, was also teased by Bieber in a teaser that was published on December 31, 2019. Starting on January 27, 2020, new episodes were published every week on Mondays and Wednesdays. In its first week of release, the docuseries racked up 32.65 million views, shattering the record for the most-viewed launch of any YouTube Original to date.
According to reports, Bieber is a temporary resident of the United States with an O-1 visa granted for "extraordinary ability or achievement" in a sector. In addition to praising Canada as "the best country in the world" and pointing to its mostly government-funded health care system as an example, Bieber has stated he is not interested in getting US citizenship. But after getting married to Hailey Baldwin in September 2018, Bieber reportedly started the process of applying to become an American citizen, according to TMZ.
