In case you hadn't heard or seen on your Facebook or Twitter feed already, it's a big day. The boy with the flippity hair who has fans of all ages fawning all over him, Justin Bieber, turns 18 today! Happy birthday, Biebs! It seems like everyone wants to get in on the celebration, and later today, Ellen DeGeneres gives her audience the opportunity when Biebs makes a b-day appearance on her show.
Being that the segment was pre-taped, we can already tell you a bit about what went down when Justin and Ellen hung out. The biggest surprise: His manager, Scooter, shows up and gives him one of the best -- and err, most extravagant -- birthday gifts of all time!
But first, Scooter applauded his client and friend of five years for being such a hard-working kid and being so devoted to his fans. He also shed some light on how he's "raised" Bieber to be as a celeb, saying, "You work really, really hard. I always yell at you don't get anything flashy. You know, we're not about that. Be humble, be humble and I kind of broke my own rule ..."
Turns out, Scooter (along with pal Usher) got Justin a Fisker Karma! Never heard of it? I know, neither had I. Apparently, if the Batmobile and a Prius had a baby, you'd get the Fisker Karma -- a luxury electric vehicle that even has a solar-paneled roof. And the car starts at $100K. Wowee, faaaaancy! Scooter wasn't kidding when he said he and Usher wanted to get Justin "a car that would make [him] stand out." This vehicle will certainly do that.
It's not crazy to think that a gift of this magnitude might actually not impress someone as world-famous and HUGE a star as Justin Bieber is right now. When you've got the world at your fingertips like he does, maybe a car like this is truly no big deal. But when when Scooter presented the car, Biebs seemed genuinely shocked/touched/excited ... and most of all, grateful. Looks like he really is the "good guy" Ellen and Scooter praised him for being. He hasn't totally lost his soul to Hollywood and become a rich, famous spoiled brat. Hallelujah!!
Even more reason he should deserves a super-happy 18th birthday!
