Back in 2011 Justin claimed the Make-A-Wish “Chris Greicius Celevrity Award” for his dedication to making wishes come true.
Now, only two years later Justin has granted the most wishes in the program and in the Music industry…all at the young age of 19!
"He shines as a Make-A-Wish supporter. He’s grown from a new celebrity wish granter into an ardent and innovative philanthropist," said Make a Wish.
His wish count continues to grow from the record of 300+ from John Cena of which he surpassed.
Scooter tweeted his praises along with Make-A-Wish tweeting about it also.
Hopefully now people can see the true Justin Bieber: a genuine, kindhearted 19 year old who truly cares about his beliebers.

Elizabeth Arden has unveiled a Summer Edition of Justin Bieber’s Someday fragrance, which is said to capture the carefree spirit of summer in a bottle, and is described as the perfect companion for playful days on the beach or flirty summer nights.
Said to be flirty and fun, the juice is a brighter version of the original Someday scent, according to the brand. It opens on top notes of mandarin zest, pear and magnolia blossom, building to a heart of strawberry and mimosa, atop a base that blends vanilla with sandalwood and musk.
The packaging is a revamped version of the original Someday presentation. The flacon this time is bright blue, with a colourful cap, adorned with gold charms.
“Someday was the first fragrance I created for my fans, and this new Special Edition fragrance was also developed with them in mind.”
"I love everything about summer: the beach, warm weather and even swimming in the ocean, so I wanted to share that with my fans in a bright, blue bottle and a fragrance that reminds me of summertime. Whether it’s music or fragrance, I always like to create something new and different just to remind them how amazing my fans are and what they mean to me.”
— Justin Bieber
Someday Summer Edition is available as a 1fl oz and 3.4 fl oz edt, priced domestically at around US$35 and US$55, respectively.

Check out this sneak peek at Justin’s wax figure over at Madame Tussauds Vienna!
Sculptors at Madame Tussauds Vienna, are putting the finishing touches to their latest attraction - a wax figure copy of teen star Justin Bieber!
And they are hoping they will make a better job of it than colleagues in London where fans complained the figure looked nothing like their idol despite months of work.
Bieber worked closely with the team who created his waxwork, giving sittings in New York. Stylists also teamed up with Justin’s personal hair stylist to ensure his once legendary hairstyle was the exact replica of the original cut.
Very soon Justin’s fans can visit their ‘heartthrob’ at the Vienna attraction when it is unveiled with a flash mob on June 21st. On the same day the star will also get his sculpture unveiled in Washington DC!
A source told RadarOnline that Justin skipped the song ‘One Less Lonely Girl' during his 2 shows in Dubai because the state religion of Islam frowns upon men touching women who are not their relatives. He didn’t want to offend anyone and he showed sensitivity and really wanted to respect the people he was playing to.
Justin recently did a interview with Gulf news talking about his life, and how he’s “just a regular kid”.
Do you ever wish you were just a regular kid?
I am a regular kid.
Well, not really…
You know what, as long as I keep thinking to myself and always remaining humble, I think that I am a regular kid and knowing that nothing is going to stop me from being who I am, then I’m going to be fine.
Justin Bieber is making videos for SpendSmart to teach youths about sound finance!
“You know when I was a kid, we didn’t have a lot of money, so me and my family had to watch the money that we spent,” Mr. Bieber says in a video directed at his young fans. “I learned if you have $100 or $100 million — if you spend more than you have, you’re going to go broke.”
“Managing your money is important,” he says, “and there’s a great company that can help you do that called SpendSmart.”
The promotional video will be shared by Justin beginning Thursday on his YouTube channel and his other social media websites so stay tuned to hear more details about his latest project!

"It’s a Canada goose!"
I am sitting next to Justin Bieber in his hotel room in New York City. He pulls out a mint black iPhone 5 from his pocket, and after seeing my surprised look, he excitedly explains its lock screen. it’s a simple illustration of the bird that reminds him of his humble beginnings in Stratford, Ontario. Despite the superstar bling, Justin is surprisingly low-key. He doesn’t have a personal assistant doting on him. For his Teen Vogue cover shoot, there was no rider and only one request: 50 Cent’s Vitaminwater, Formula 50 (“the purple one”).
Justin on internet fame:
"My Twitter is really nice. I have so many fans that I rarely ever see a nasty tweet. I don’t read YouTube comments because those can get you sad."
Justin on who he counts as friends:
"My dad, my mom, Ryan [Good]. Ryan and Chaz [his friends from home]. [Lil] Twist is my best friend. They don’t see me as Justin Bieber, but just see me as Justin."
Justin on his song “Yellow Raincoat”:
"It started as a warm-up guitar riff—it’s got that Tracy Chapman meets Eric Clapton vibe. When I heard it I thought it was brilliant. In the studio, I said something that sounded like ‘raincoat,’ and I liked it. I was thinking of what I was going through. The raincoat is a metaphor for putting up a wall, not letting anyone affect what I do, because I know who I am and what type of person I am. It doesn’t matter what they say, I’ve got this yellow raincoat covering me."
Justin on his inner circle:
"I get good vibes from people all the time, and I probably could get along with them and be their friend, but now I just don’t trust anybody. Literally, my phone never rings. I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with. I don’t need a bunch of friends to make me happy. I just need the people close to me that I love, that’s all."
Justin on striving to be the best:
"When people get to where they want, they’re like, ‘I’m here, I got it.’ When I get to the top, I just want to get better."
Justin on his concerts:
"I wanted to do something different, and something people would remember. I just want everybody to have a good time no matter what their age."
Justin his spiritual side:
"I think that’s part of the reason I’m here. Not just because I’m talented, but because God had a purpose for me to just help people. I’m spiritual … although I slept in [and missed] church yesterday. I haven’t been to church in so long, and I planned on going, and I slept in. I was upset. It’s all good. God forgives me."

The mama bear is defending the cubs!
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith took to her Facebook page on Sunday to defend several young stars whose lives have been heavily criticized lately in the media.
“Are we bullying our young artists? … How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them?” her post to her 3 million followers began. Accompanying the entry was a photo of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and Quvenzhane Wallis.
"This last week, I had to really evaluate the communication in regard to our young artists in the media. I was trying to differentiate cyber-bullying from how we attack and ridicule our young stars through media and social networks," she continued. "It is as if we have forgotten what it means to be young or even how to behave like good ol’ grown folk. Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous?"
What a trooper!
Justin Bieber experienced breathing troubles during his show at London’s O2 arena tonight and, per eyewitnesses who took to Twitter immediately, the 19-year-old appeared to pass out onstage.
"He got oxygen from emergency personnel. He insisted on finishing the show. He is on the way to the hospital right now," his rep tells E! News.
Arena sources tell us that Bieber informed the crowd that he wasn’t feeling well and went backstage to get checked out. He returned to the stage about 10 minutes later and finished the show, despite a doctor’s recommendation that he pull the plug.
