Before he is known worldwide as the singer heartthrob Justin Bieber, he was just a normal school kid raised by a single mother in Canada.
Major television network ABC is concocting a new project that will feature the biography of the famous pop sensation. Bieber's rags to riches story is believed to be an inspiration of a sitcom. A reality TV show is also a speculated format.
TV Guide broke the news and says the show would be produced by Bieber and manager Scooter Braun. It would center on the crooner's life prior to Justin striking it rich and famous. On the small screen, Bieber has guest-starred on CSI, hosted Punk'd and appeared in the special Justin Bieber: All Around the World.
One of the possible parts of the sitcom is Justin Bieber's relationship with young actress Selena Gomez. Justin and Selena are considered as one of the beautiful couples in Hollywood.
However, Hollywood Life reported that the actress recently broke up with the pop singer as the latter befriends Selena's ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas.
The gossip website quoted a source saying, "Hanging out with Nick proved that he wants to just be a jerk about this, and Selena's sick of being heartbroken," our source said. "They are finished, and I think it's for good this time."
In a less laughing matter, two men were arrested after concocting a plot to castrate and murder him at a concert in the US.
Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane from New Mexico were allegedly hired by jailed fan Dana Martin, who is currently serving two life sentences at a state prison near Las Cruces, for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in 2000. Martin was so obsessed with the singer, he even had a tattoo of Bieber on his leg.
The pair were hired to kill a total of four people, including two of Bieber's acquaintances in Vermont, before travelling to New York where their plan was to murder the singer and his bodyguard at a gig at Madison Square Garden last month.
