The Evolution Of Justin Bieber

The Evolution Of Justin Bieber

Because, why not?

I have been a Belieber since the very beginning, and I am definitely not ashamed of it. How could I be? Justin Bieber started as the cutest boy (my biggest crush at the age of 12) to a handsome, talented young man. So he made a few stupid mistakes, so what? That definitely didn't stop me from supporting him. Not only did his age change, but his hair style changed, his style changed, his music changed, and it all came together to what he is today: a very lucky, wealthy and famous person. If you don't believe my observation of his evolution being truly mesmerizing, take a look for yourself...

2008: The beginning of the Bieber Era. This was the first time people really began to see Justin Bieber out in the open. After being discovered, he was quickly thrown into the fan-based obsession that would grow into "Bieber Fever".

2009: The Bieber side flip was in. It made an appearance in 2008, but this was when it began to hit all of the regular, pre-pubescent boys by storm. They all had this hair all they all claimed that they "hated" Justin Bieber. All of the girls saw right through them and their flipped hair.

2010: The Bieber hair flip has made it another year. However, this year it looks a bit more organized and styled. It's a little shorter. Instead of a hoodie, Justin has opted for a very nice bowtie ensemble and he looks very dapper. Still just a kid though.

2011: BAM. The Justin Bieber hair is GONE, just like that! Clearly, he looks like he is trying to grow up a bit and to rid himself of his "cute-boy, adorable" persona. However, at only 17 years old, he was still considered a baby in the public eye.

2012: And the hair gets higher. Not only is the Bieber side-swipe gone, but the hair is defying gravity at this point. The shift from 2011 Justin Bieber to 2012 Justin Bieber is a major one. He also seems to be dabbling in some new wardrobe styles: nothing too crazy, but something a little different. I can appreciate the attempt at fashion.

2013: This Justin Bieber is very similar to the 2012 Justin Bieber, just older. I'm not mad about it though. At 19 years old, he was looking good. Also, this was about the time he dropped off the face of the earth because of his rebellious stage. Whatever.

2014: Wow. Justin Bieber, back and looking better than ever. He is showing two full sleeves of tattoos, blatantly stating that he is not a child anymore. His gravity-defying hair is tamed and styled perfectly to suit his chiseled jawline. He gets a 10/10 on the attractive scale from me.

2015: Out with a new album with completely different sound, Justin Bieber is back in business. After his brief hiatus, it is nice to hear a fresh sound from him and even see a new look. Though his previous style was more my type, this one isn't awful. The wardrobe picks aren't my favorite, but who really cares about the outfit, honestly?

2016: Here we are. The head is shaved, he is on tour, he is back to the beginning (though much older than when he started). He has made it eight years so far, even with his brief period of issues. It looks like now he is trying to start fresh. Maybe the evolution will continue. I'm excited to see what's to come, but I definitely wouldn't be mad if he stayed looking like this, either.***

***The dread-lock phase was ignored for the sole reason that they were awful and did not reflect the proper evolutionary growth of Justin Bieber. It was an outlier that had to be excluded.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.
