LOS ANGELES, CA(UTC/The Loop) – For those who had the Bieber Fever on Sunday, September 12th were cured at this year’s VMA’s awards. Usher, who signed Bieber on the spot after finding him on YouTube, has made this sixteen year old cutie a star and Best New Artist of the Year. Check out this Youtube video, where Justin was first discovered.

JB was founded by Usher but was also asked to be managed by Justin Timberlake.  Having two platinum artist fighting over who is going to sign your record deal must be an incredible feeling for a sixteen year old.

Bieber has had many hits this past year starting off his career with the song, “One Time” and following with “One Less Lonely Girl,” “Baby,” and “Eennie Meenie” featuring Sean Kingston, a recording artist who was also found on YouTube.

The pop teen sensation who has girls drooling and crying.  He has been tweeting almost everyday leading up towards the VMA’s and looks like it payed off.  Stars such as Selena Gomez voiced her opinion and her support for Beiber to win the award.

Beiber was up against Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo and Broken Bells.  Although I wasn’t surprised of his winning others were and tended to have a different opinion on who should have won. Check this link out to see all contestants for Best New Artist.

” Nicki Minaj totally should have won new artist. ” said UTC student, Kara Livingston.  Some people were  upset about him winning because they feel he is too little and not really talented.  ” He is a one hit wonder, as soon as he hits puberty his voice will change.” said Kerri Crawford also a student at UTC.  ” He is sixteen years old and singing like he knows all about love!”

  I wonder if students just don’t like him because he is a famous sixteen year old boy who is making millions of dollars. Is it jealousy or pure dislike? What are your thoughts?
