Justin Bieber to release a memoir
If we believed everything we read about Justin Bieber, we'd currently be convinced that he died (at least once), contracted syphilis and is about to embark on a tour of North Korea. But the latest Bieber news does not appear to be another Google-trending meme.
Harper Collins announced today that Bieber is publishing a memoir with the colon-heavy title "Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story" that will be be released in October. The book promises to reveal all the details of his "amazing journey to stardom," a journey that, it should be pointed out, has lasted all of 16 years.
Hey, remember when people busted on Dave Eggers for writing "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" when he was just shy of 30? That seems kind of dumb right now, doesn't it?
But seriously, Bieber has plenty of material with which to fill a rich life history. Surely there will be an entire section devoted to the tumultuous, soul-searching creative process that led to the writing of "Baby." And if this book is worth any of the ink used to print it, there had better be a chapter -- at least -- devoted to his hair.
This much is clear -- the Justin Bieber book makes a ripe candidate for the Celebritology book club.
What revelations do you expect from the Bieber autobio? Will you buy a copy?
