1. BIEBER FEVER REMAINS UNABATED (undiminished)
“Baby” did not prove to be a one-hit wonder. Instead, Bieber Fever has continued to rage UNABATED (undiminished and thus at full force). The 19-year-old superstar has a net worth of over $120 million and a loyal global army of Beliebers that includes 42 million Twitter followers. Bieber owns lavish mansions and drive a fleet of luxurious supercars.
2. LUCRATIVE (very profitable) IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT (overly restrained)
To say that Justin Bieber is having a LUCRATIVE (very profitable) career is an UNDERSTATEMENT (overly restrained). JB is a cash-making machine who earns $55 million a year. The multi-million dollar Bieber empire includes products ranging from posters and backpacks to toothbrushes and fragrances. In addition, Bieber is rapidly becoming a venture capitalist with investments in Spotify, Tinychat, and SoJo Studios.
3. AN OSTENTATIOUS (very showy) AUDI R8 SUPERCAR
JB now has a fleet of luxury supercars that includes a Ferrari 430, a Porsche Turbo 997, a gleaming white Lamborghini, and a Fisker Karma Hybrid. But these amazing cars have been ECLIPSED (surpassed) by Bieber’s attention-grabbing Audi R8. Not content to simply drive the 525-hp Audi, the Biebs had the car wrapped in a leopard-print pattern. The OSTENTATIOUS (very showy) supercar is now one of the most recognized vehicles in Los Angles. It may also have inspired Flo Rida to wrap his Bugatti in a shimmering gold chrome.
4. ORNATE (elaborately decorated) MANSIONS
Needless to say, Biebs needs a crib where he can park his fleet of luxury supercars. Bieber solved that problem by purchasing a $10.8 million LA mansion. Once rented by Ashton Kutcher for $50,000 a month, the ORNATE mansion boasts 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, private theater, personal gym, and a stunning infinity pool. Bieber also owns a country home in Calabasas outside LA.
5. PHILANTHROPY – GOOD BUT NOT YET MUNIFICENT
JB is best known for his CONSPICUOUS (very noticeable) fleet of luxury cars
and expensive mansions. Although Biebs is not yet a MUNIFICENT (very generous) philanthropist, he does support many worthwhile charities. For example, he has become involved with the Pencils of Promise effort to build schools in developing countries. In addition, Bieber actively promotes adopting shelter animals. In one video he states:”It’s really important that people adopt. I really encourage
going out to an animal shelter or a place where you can get a dog that has been abandoned or doesn’t have a home.” Bieber himself adopted a cute spaniel named Sam. I’m with JB on this one. My wife and I recently adopted a wonderful shelter cat we named Jennie Belle.
