  • Andrea Bieber (Guatemala)

    He is not just handsome also charitable

    • Alyssa sweetie luvzjb

      Totally agree we don’t love our sweet Justin Bieber for his good looks and musical talent but for his heart too. His heart is just as big as his fanbase.

    • Mrs.Bieber

      Do any of you Beliebers dream about Justin and what do you guys dream about?

      • xoBelieberxo

        Yes. I did once, It was about a year ago, and I dreamed that I went to his concert. In fact, I was really close to the stage that I couldn’t see.. It was quite blurry. I supposently went with my class at school on a field trip. But yeah, That was my dream. I hope I have other one’s sometime.

      • #Believe In Biebah

        I dream about Justin. I’m always Justin’s 15 year old sister. He’s always my 18 year old brother. It might seem weird, but I fangirl over him in reality, but in my dreams I love him as my brother. :)

        justin’s hair looks so freakin hot like that! pic.twitter.com/hOwyvekF

      • the real biebah

        I dreamt bout justin 5 times!
        but the latest one was justin downstairs my building !
        I saw a really cool black car and then I saw the perfection coming out of it a.k.a justin himself and he smiled at me and huged me!
        lol thats all I remember…i dont remember what happens exactly in my dreams!

      • Jsha bieber

        Hmmm~~ I did, 8 times or more :) ¤Once i was shopin with him. ¤He gave me VIP tickets for his concert. ¤He gave me his Cell Phone. ¤He came to my home Twice. ¤1ce he visited to my School……..

      • Mrs.Bieber

        I’m 15 too #Believe In Biebah and I dream that he is my older brother too!!! I thought that I was the only one who dreamed about that and I thought people would think that I was strange!!! I dream about him being my 18 year old brother, because I know he would never date a minor. It is going to be worse when he is 19, because there is going to be an even more age difference.

  • Andrea Bieber (Guatemala)

  • ivan

    Wonder if the scandal loving gossip sites will mention this-something positive about Justin.

    • Alisha

      Aww! So nice, he is great guy. Luv u jb <3

      • Alisha

        @ivan right, they never mention these good things he does.

    • Sarah

      Oh my god AMEN.

  • retarded fangirls

    I’m dumb and so immature. LMFAO

    • #Believe In Biebah

      Just because you don’t like her, doesn’t mean YOU have to be immature. What do you want, a “I’m The Best Poser” award? Be nice and grow up. :)

      • #Believe In Biebah

        I’m so immature I need the “I’m The Best Poser” award!!!

      • #Believe In Biebah

        This poser is really annoying. Please, posing as someone is stupid, immature, and childish. Get a life. Stop posing as me and @retarTedfangirls. Ok, bye. :)

    • retarted fangirls

      Man you even got the username wrong Lol

  • #Believe In Biebah

    Justin’s heart is bigger than his bank account. <3

    • Jsha bieber

      Yup, hes just so amazing. ;)

  • #Believe In Biebah

    Taylor Swift is always #1 at these things. Ugh. -__-

    • leila

      what’s wrong with that? like you can beat her, so shut up and just accept that justin is a good person, but not the best at everything

      • #Believe In Biebah

        I’m not playing or complaining. I know Taylor is really charitable, sweet, and kind. I’m not criticising her or anything. She’s always #1, and she deserves being it. So don’t get your panties in a knot. :) Happy Holidays.

    • Rue b

      Girl go sit down somewhere… I don’t know if you was playing or not but if you weren’t its not a competition helping the world is not a competition….. The only thing they get out of this is the joy and the satisfaction that they did something that’ll change the view in a good way…. But if u were playing ….stop.

      • #Believe In Biebah

        As I said I’m happy for Taylor, she deserves it, I wasn’t playing/critising, Happy Holidays. :)

  • Jsha bieber

    ;) Follow me on twitter @jshabieber for a follow back :)


    Way to go Justin bieber I love you so much

  • Beliebers4ever

    way 2 go Justin I <3 u.

  • khloe99

    Of course…….I knew that Taylor Swift was and by the looks of it always WILL be 1st on anything related to charity well I guess she deserved cause I’ve never seen any celebrity take out so much of time of their music career for charitable work. Well its nice to see celebs like Juju <3 to take time out and actually use their money for charitable reasons.

  • khloe99

    Hey did anyone else notice that Justin posted a racy pic of Selena on instagram

    • Rue b

      What was so racy about it…. I don’t get it

      • khloe99

        Well that’s what those stupid gossip sites call it anyways I just posted the title of the article

    • #Believe In Biebah

      I noticed! If your talking about that picture of Selena in the red dress, with her hair open, and she’s on sand. But, I think Justin didn’t post that pic. Because on twitter, there’s pics of Chaz’s comment under Selena’s photo, and he said that he posted that. But, even if Chaz did post that pic, Justin didn’t delete it. Anyways, as Kingsley said, “Lord, free us from the drama of Jelena!” So yeah, lol. But, did you see what Justin commented?! There was this pic of a guy, he was shirtless, and had nice abs, and Justin commented, “U look fat” & on another he commented, “Nice shirt, douchebag.” That isn’t very nice, than again it could’ve been someone’s pic he knew or maybe his Instagram got hacked. Or, maybe he was drunk… o.O Lol, idk. But, yeah I saw the Selena pic.

      • xoBelieberxo

        #Believe In Bieber – Where did you get the shirt-less guy and Justin commenting “U look fat & called him a douchebag? I never saw that and I go on Justin’s twitter everyday.. So please tell me where you got that from.

      • #Believe In Biebah

        @xoBelieberxo That was on INSTAGRAM. But everyone’s talking about it on Twitter, and there’s also screenshots on Twitter. But, Justin commented, “U look fat” & “Nice shirt, douchebag” on Instagram.

      • xoBelieberxo

        Oh, Sorry.. DIdn’t know

      • khloe99

        Wow really??? How come I didn’t know

    Taylor Swift is always first but I’m glad she is because out of everyone on the list, including Justin, she’s all I ever see donating to charities. I know Justin and obviously the people on the list do it too but it’s usually Taylor I see donating often.
