He is the biggest pop star on the planet right now, a sweet-faced Canadian teen heartthrob with multi-platinum albums – and legions of hysterically screaming fans. What is it about Justin Bieber that attracts such devotion? Is he a flash in the pan or the real deal? Can he make the treacherous transition from teen idol to adult performer?
Toronto Star feature writer Shawna Richer followed the Believe tour to 11 cities across North America, to help answer these questions.
