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.

    • 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

    • 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!

      • 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

      • 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???

      • 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!

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • 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

      • YOUR WRONG!! CAUSE I WILL LOVE JUSTIN EVEN WHEN I AM 10000! HAPPY? THOSE ARE CALLED FEW BELIEBERS! NOT THOSE WHO KEEP STICKING TO OTHER PEOPLE~~~

      • 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..

      • 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.

    • 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..

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

      • 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.

    • 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.

  7. 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

    • 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

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    • 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!

      • 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.

      • 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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

    • 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

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

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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……
