Sharon Osbourne Predicts “Justin Bieber’s Career Won’t last”

Sharon Osbourne meets Justin Bieber for the first time during Best Buy TV commercial (Feb 2011)

The former X Factor Judge — Sharon Osbourne has predicted that Justin Bieber’s career won’t last, reports DigitalSpy.com

Speaking at the National Radio conference in Sydney, Sharon said that Justin’s fans will soon grow tired of him because he “still looks like that little boy”.

“For me, Justin is… I’ve met him, I’ve worked with him, I did a TV commercial with him. He’s a really great little guy. But that’s his problem – he’s a little guy.

“His fans are growing up, they’re 18, 19-year-olds now. And that means the little girls of titties and lips (sic), you know they’re young women. And he still looks like that little boy! He needs some hair, or something.

“I just don’t think, from my gut, maybe my gut’s wrong ‘cos it’s not 100%, but I don’t think he’s going to stand the test of time.

“But you know what, I don’t feel sorry for him, because he’s made oodles and he’s a fabulously nice person and he’ll go on to do something else.

Sharon recently admitted that she would “love” to return to The X Factor as a judge.

    first! he will last forever

    • Belieber94

      I know. I don’t know what sharon’s talking about. Justin will be famous forever and he’s not a little boy, he’s 18.. like Gosh

        hi my name is david conway

    • Mrs. Bieber

      What Sharon said is true. His fans aren’t going to stick with him forever. When you’re thirty I don’t think you’re going to still be a belieber. People grow up over time and mature. Justin can’t be a singer for the rest of his life, he’s got to think about his future. When he’s sixty are we going to still be cheering him on? Obviously not! We’re going to find a young singer that’s got his game on. We won’t be the newest generation for long. So think about it beliebers. Do you really think he’s going to last forever in this industry? If you say yes then there is something wrong with you!

      • Danielle

        What ever

      • Jsha bieber

        Ur wrong,Ikr we all beliebers gonna stick with him forever.

      • Jsha bieber

        Yes yes yes he will last forever n here nothing is wrong with me but everything is with u minga

      • rada

        Of course his music career is not gonna last forever, but he might enter other businesses like film, for example. And as for his future… He doesn’t need to think about it, he has enough money to not have to work a single day in his life. Lucky guy

      • gexwy

        You are really wrong.You have wrote it just because you want to be his Mrs.Bieber…hahah we,beliebers will always be with him ok???

      • YOLO

        I agree with you Mrs.Bieber. Those fools who think he is going to last forever are so dumb! They think if Justin quits the music indrusty and doesn’t do anything else in his life that he will still have money, but they are wrong. He blows it on useless stuff! And Jsha Bieber are you Indian; if you are, I know why you believe Justin Will last forever!

      • Lauren

        Well, you thought wrong. I’m 29 years old and a hardcore Belieber. There are plenty of older Beliebers out there. You just aren’t aware of it because you’re not in the same age group. It’s no different than me being completely unaware (mainly because I don’t care) of what teenagers are up to these days. I don’t know because I’m not around it enough.

        When I found him on YouTube almost 5 years ago, I subscribed because I thought he was amazing. Then he got popular and just blew up the music scene. Here I am 5 years later purely astonished at what this kid has accomplished. I’ve converted many friends including a Top-40’s-hating husband of mine! The kid has whatever “it” is. He will be around for years. Do I expect him to be swaggin’ at 60? No. That’s asinine for you to suggest or anyone else to think. If you think in terms of the career longevity of a top music artist, their decline starts in their 40’s more often than not. But the Madonna’s and Celine Dion’s of the world kept going past their “prime” age. Why can’t Bieber?

        He’s 18. I think it’s far too early to even say what his career will be in 5, 10, 15+ years. He’s shown he can keep a level head and not let the industry get to him. His music will continue to mature as he has. Believe has shown he can appeal to a much broader audience. I imagine his next album will push “adulthood” even further.

        I do believe that because of the social media age we now live in he will be popular for years to come. I believe he’ll be bigger than Michael Jackson because of social media and the internet. Now we’ll just all sit back and watch his career move forward.

      • Belieber94

        As long as he does his music/acting carrer, I will always be a Belieber. Only God knows his plans throughout the years. And No, there’s nothing wrong with me. And I also know he’s not going to do his music carrer in his 60s.

      • BieberSwaggie

        If you say no them there’s clearly something wrong with you and don’t name your self “mrs.bieber” if your clearly not trying to support him

      • jazmin


      • @Marie_Belieber3

        You call yourself ‘Mrs. Bieber’ and then you say you won’t be with him forever??
        – I will stay with him forever. When I’m 60, I will turn on my radio, and hear Justin’s voice.. I know that his voice won’t sound like now, but did his voice sound like now 4 years ago? No.. So if you know you won’t be a Belieber when you get 60, you shouldn’t be calling yourself a Belieber now..

      • Jade

        That’s what people use to say about the New Kids on the Block when they were Justin’s age and their fans were young girls. Now, the band is in their 40’s and the Blockheads (fans) are STILL with them and they are still selling out concerts all over the world. I 100% believe is Justin stuck around that long so would a lot of his fans–probably not all–but the hardcore ones for sure. What will happen is that yes, his fame WILL die down, and he’ll probably take a break, but when he comes back, his fans will be waiting.

    • jazmindigma

      oh well,obviously,Justin is enjoying his life okey?..plain and simple, “his enjoying his life” ..so it does’nt matter whether he looks like a li’l boy or a grown up boy..as long as he’s happy with it…ang he’s enjoying it… :) ..why don’t you fudges use all your common sense..

  • Aine

    stupid bitch, atleast he has a career. how is he a “little boy”. shes a cow.

    • Belieber94

      I agree. He’s not a little boy. That makes not since why she said that. He’s 18 yrs old. not 13.

      • Marley

        Have you even read what she just said? Obviously his age doesn’t make him little. But he still looks like that boy from “One Time”. Justin really needs to step up his game with music and try a mature sound rather than relying on his loyal fans to keep him relevant. My older sister is now acting like he never existed. She used to love him to death.

      • Danielle

        Yea I agree with all of u but not the butt head mrs.bieber.


      I agree with you .


        / WITH AINE . /

    • JBJBB

      Yeah wtf does she know? She should just keep her trap shut

  • iyana luvs justin bieber

    I love Sharon but I don’t understand why she would say that

    • Belieber94

      Same here

  • Zak

    oh and when was the last time she changed her hairstyle?

    • Belieber94

      Hah.. Never. She keeps it the same. And I don’t know why she said Justin’s hair style needs changing. He got a different haircut last year.

      • GG

        I think she means some scrffyness on the face


    Oh Sharon, his fans will NEVER grow up, i mean just look at all the death threats you’re gonna get, they were immature 4 years a go, they are still immature now. So i think they’ll be sticking with him for a long time.

    I mean everyone is like that, they will eventually go away, no one lasts, although i’m a fan, i’mnot gonna be bias, even though i really love justin and i think i’ll love him 4ever, i also said that to Jesse Mcartney, Justin Timberlake, Jordan Knight, etc. And i know i grow out of them.

    Yeah maybe i’m not a “true” belieber like many of you claim to be. but you never know, things change when you grow up.

  • Zak

    this is exactly y beliebers like justin and not Sharon XD

  • Belieber for life

    I now hate her for saying that I have been a belieber for years. Will always be a belieber if beliebers keep buying his music he will stay around live you Justin <3

    • Belieber94

      Exactly true

  • Belieber

    Thats the point sharon everyone loves him because of his great image and voice and he is young too so he grows up along with his fans at that whats best coz he will always be here for us..just keep ur opinions to ur self next time u meet justin coz he will last forever

  • JaylaBieber

    I don’t know how some of you guys can sit there and act like she isn’t right. Teen pop idols, especially male ones, do not last very long without a lot of touching up. Sharon made a valid point. She also thinks he will go on to do something else major, but she doesn’t see his fanbase growing with him, and I don’t either. Some Beliebers will but I doubt most. Justin’s growing up which obviously means he’s going to change. Music wise and as a person. Then, he will have this entire flock of “Beliebers” trying to get him to stay the way he was back in ’09.

    • Belieber94

      His fanbase is growing. He has almost 29M followers on twitter and over 40M on Facebook.

      • JaylaBieber

        That’s not the growing I meant.

      • The REAL khloe99

        She meant growing in maturity and to remember that justin is not gonna forever be that baby singing cute 16 year old that we all fell in love with. He eventually is gonna change and grow up and we should too. And I agree with you Jaylabieber at least someone gets it

      • Belieber94


  • Jess Bieb

    you are angry at her because you know what she said is true. I bet most of you use to idolize someone, and swore you would love that person forever, now where he at? Especially younger fans, they will grow up and grow out of him.But hey why worry about that now? just enjoy the present. If he is meant to last, he will last


      you sond like a hater

      • TTFan

        BIEBERGIRL99 You sound like a naive little girl, which I’m guessing you are since you cant even spell. Jess Bieb is right. Justin has maybe two more years, but that’s it musically. And this is coming from a JB fan.

      • BAAB

        yes i am a hater because i don’t praise justin in every sentence that i say. I am a hater because i can look at things objectively.

      • BAAB

        @Jess Bieb good to see smart people here

    • Galiya

      You totally wright.People are living in the present. they even don’t want to worry about their future

    • Belieber94

      I used too Idolize the Jonas Brothers in 2006 and there starting to record music doing tours again


    justin is a forever and always will be. i love u jb.

  • GermanBieber

    Michael Jackson started when he was 5 & stopped at 50. Justin & Michael are similar. People said Michael would never make it apparently he was nothing without the Jackson 5. Justin isn’t just a phase. He’ll be here until his last breath. <3

    • Kalua


      Justin is the prince of pop & it’ll take a long a** time to bring down such a legacy

      • Marley

        Your either very delusional, or your just in denial. Michael Jackson and his brothers made a huge impact when he was that age. Justin is popular, but he will never be around in the next 10 years. I guarantee it, unless a miracle happens.

      • Lokani

        Love your name kalua, he’s amazing recording arist, I do think Justin will be around for a long time,

      • Belieber94

        You’re right! He’s the next Prince of pop.

    • JaylaBieber

      I can’t even express how you have just showed your ignorance trying to compare Michael and Justin’s careers. First off, Justin isn’t the “prince of pop” nor will he or anyone else be. He literally started a revolution and no one will ever be close to him. I love Justin and all, but he just follows the game.

      • Belieber94


  • BAAB

    sadly…its true, no one lasts. It’s how it works, it’s not because justin is not talented, That’s just how it is. To be honest, i rarely kept up with justin for the past year anymore, i got work and college, i only came here cuz i heard that his laptop was stolen and was blackmailed and stuff

    • Believe


      • BAAB

        whatever dude

    • Belieber94

      Why are you saying Justin’s carrer won’t last? You don’t even know all he has planned acording to his life period. There may be another person coming about in 5 yrs or so, but my guts are telling me ‘No matter who comes around, There will still be some Beliebers out there who will still like him.’ I know I will. No one knows exactly how many more years he will be famous for. He could be around more yrs than people expect him to be

  • Marley

    Some of you seriously need to look up how the industry works. In this generation EVERYONE will fade away sooner than people did in the 90s or 80s. The longitivtiy that Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, or even Madonna had are now a singers dream. In this lifetime not everyone will last, and you have to except that with Justin…

    • Believe

      some pressure make you come here wrote comments more often than his fans ; )

  • Ashley

    I agree with Sharon, he has got to ditch this “nice guy” image, i used to love that he connects with his fans and all, but now i’m just sick of it. I’m not saying that its bad, it’s just that i think he’s trying too hard to be nice, and because of that, his fans are becoming more and more ignorant each day. He never said anything when his fans sent death threats and do stupid things.

    • Sharl8Biebs

      I really think there is no way to stop how his fans are. It’s already too late. It is his fans who are the reason why everybody mostly hates him, I do agree with you on that.

    • Belieber94

      He is a nice guy. He gives to charity, visits sick kids in children hospitals, gives money to homeless schools and allot more. You mean his haters sending deathe threates? fans would not go that

  • Ooh jk

    Sharon is 100% correct its how he acts its like he’s still a little guy ..and he’s 18 he should be heading to the adult route . And his music is good but he needs some music that is mature enough for people his age and up to listen too. I’m not a hater I’m just telling the truth but I still respect justin.

    • Believe

      Go to his concert, you will see how much adult fans he has, I mean real fans, you will be very surprise ; )

    • Belieber94

      He and his music is starting to mature more. Um, My mom and dad likes Justin’s new music

  • danielle


    • Danielle

      U tell ‘em girlfriend (p.s. I have the same name as u)

  • LaLaLand

    I seriuosly cannot at some of you people. Comparing Michael and Justin’s careers? Weather you guys like it or not Justin will never take any lead role when it comes to superstardom. Michael, Madonna, Britney, And Elvis are the only ones I can think of right now who made a whole turn in music that we hear today. Justin is nowhere near that, and will probably disappear. This is coming from a fan.

    • Me no like

      To the people comparing him to Britney Spears…you cant compare the two because Justin would win…he’s not using autotune. I may get hate because I said that about her but she obviously does and she is not a legend in my eyes. Her songs are cool and everything but she uses autotune on them so quot lying out of your teeth. Thats just my opinion!

      • LaLaLand

        I never said I liked Britney. The point is she did something that made her sell over 200 million records worldwide, made her get a number one single just last year, and has been around for the last decade. Quantity doesn’t always have to equal popularity. Including her first album that sold 30 million ALONE. But if that’s not good enough for you than I rest my case.

      • hmph

        I agree however Britney has lost alot of her fan base. She still has some loyal ones that follow her but she isn’t as popular as she was back in the day. It’ll be the same for Justin. Nothing lasts forever.

  • Jeliah

    Everyone needs to stop fighting about this. Time will tell. No one really knows the future. He may end up being remebered forever or hey may not. I’ve loved Justin since 2009 and I still love him today. I am going to tell you that when Mindless Behvior came out I started to fan girl over them but then I got over it. That was like in 2010 and in 2011. Cody Simspon came out and that was a phase too. Now One Direction, Austin Mahone, and Greyson Chance are in the industry and I’m fan girling over them. I still am a committed Belieber! It all depends on the person. They may have a phase over someone(s) or they may not. Its up to the Beliebrs/fans of Justin to stay with him through his career. When I’m older I may not be going crazy and having posters up of Justin up on my wall but I will love him!

  • Bieleber

    He probably will last… he has the best fans in the world Sharon is a loser people dont even know who SHE is she should not be talking

    • LaLaLand

      She has been judging contestants for years on shows, and has experience with the music industry. She can have the criticism of people who she watched get to fame. It should be you who has no room to talk.

      • ※_※

        oh now she is over ,she has no room here to talk

  • Alyssa sweetie luvzjb

    It makes no sense to say Justin’s gonna lose his fame, because even if some of his old fans leave him (wich I’m sure isn’t happening any time soon) he has 28 or 29 million fans on twitter wich is more than he had in ’09 and his new album believe went platinum. I don’t know, but that doesn’t look like loosing fans to me

    • Alyssa sweetie luvzjb

      Btw, Sharon Osbourne is ugly like her daughter I hope she dies now!!!!

      • Jsha bieber

        I like ur comment

      • hmph

        That’s pretty mature of you, wishing death on someone.

  • belieberforever

    i bet she’s SO jealous of him!!!

    • Jsha bieber

      lol yaa

  • Penelopppppppe(:

    The ugly truth ……, we’ll face it when the time comes but for now, JUSTIN’S NUMBER ONE!!! #votebieber

  • JaylaBieber

    Some of you are so busy trying to defend Justin, you haven’t even glanced at what she had said. Therefore, you look really stupid trying to make points that have nothing to do with what was said. You read the title and you automatically jumped to death threats and how she’s a b!tch when she isn’t.

  • Sharl8Biebs

    I don’t comment much but your seriously the only person including some other people that actually can make points without looking stupid. :)

  • belieber till forever

    well sharon NOW look at him he in grwn up and sexy and we love him even more and i will never get bored of him bitch

    • Jsha bieber


  • Saphire

    Sharon needs to relax. When it’s time for sexy to grow, he will grow. Although I do believe all of u. He has grown alot with his look and music. So Sharon needs to relax and go sh!t in a hole or something.

    • Marley

      This isn’t about having a sexual image though. He really hasn’t done anything for himself to have any longitivtiy when the years come. I really like Justin, but I really don’t see him making it past the next 5 years or so.

      • Jsha bieber

        Rude ni**a

  • Saphire

    Atthe same time, me and my friend were talking about this. although I don’t agree with sharon, i thought about it and she has a point. to me, he has some innocent look. It really annoys me because he is a naughty boy and…. i like it. I really like naughty boys and…. he’s DEFENATLY me.

  • sastika belieber

    I dont what sharon is talking abt lyk he’s 18 n 18 means nt a little boy.means uuugghh she’s really disgusting.n yaa WE’ll (mst of us#beliebers ) be sticking with him.u knw I was thinking the same thing when my sister asked me the day before.n here the same yeahh I WILL BE LOVING HIM 4eva NO MATTER WHAT PPL SAY>THOSE PPL SHOULD GO N GET A LIFE FOR THEMSELVES no offense bt really sucking……
