Yeah Justin, Take It Away!

I call him the “Cool Hair Dude”. Look at that crop! The hairstyle suits him. It’s his trademark. It reminded me of teen idols of the ’60s where the hair was the in-thang! One saw first before hearing the voice.  Meet JUSTIN BIEBER! The latest Canadian singing sensation.

He was featured on the BBC1 Breakfast show a couple of days ago and I couldn’t help thinking that today’s generation has pushed the boundaries of the voice box to heights unknown. They are crooning in a different kind of way that appeals to certain types of people and mainly young ones. This boy, only 15 years of age, started learning to play the guitar at the tender age of 11. Now 4 years later he is on stage with a hit single ‘Baby’ which was released today. That’s right. Released today! He is the teen idol of the new decade, without a doubt.

I keep on thinking about my teen idols who were Cliff Richard, Ricky Nelson, the Beatles and Buddy Holly, then came Elvis Presley, Petula Clark, Lulu, Skeeter Davis and the Bee Gees.

He says he is having a ‘blast’…so he should. His debut album ‘My World’ (released on 17 November, 2009) should be selling like hotcakes. The 2nd part of ‘My World’ will be released in March, 2010. The kid’s cool and a joy to hear him speak about his aspirations and the world unfolding before him as a budding musician. Such a grown up little guy. Yeah, Justin, take it away!

Enjoy.
