Six years ago, Justin Bieber introduced himself to the world via his first single, 2009’s “One Time.” And since then, the world hasn’t been the same—in both good ways and bad.
Here’s a look at Bieber’s highs (platinum albums!) and lows (that egg-throwing incident!) in the six years since “One Time” first graced our radio stations.
HIGH: Bieber’s debut EP My World reaches platinum in the U.S.
LOW: He meets President Barack Obama for the first time and greets him by saying, “What up, my dude!”
HIGH: The video for Bieber’s “Baby” becomes the most viewed video on YouTube.
LOW: The video for Bieber’s “Baby” becomes the most “disliked” video on YouTube.
HIGH: Never Say Never arrives in theaters Feb. 11 and debuts at No. 2 at the box office with an impressive (for a concert documentary) $29.5 million.
LOW: He cuts his hair. Fans weep.
