His videos on social media proved to be his audition for the big-time and Justin Bieber hasn’t looked back since. He’s gone from being a Canadian YouTube phenomenon to an über-successful international artiste — so much so, that Carly Rae Jepsen has compared his popularity to the Beatlemania of yore. Of course kind words from Carly are only to be expected, and this is where our tiny tale begins.
Back in 2011, when Carly was just another aspiring musician from Canada, Justin extended his hand in friendship and support. From encouraging his millions of Twitter followers to check out her ‘Call Me Maybe’ single in 2012, to featuring in a viral video for the track, The Bieb went out of his way to make his Canadian contemporary feel welcome in the mainline music industry. What he earned in return was a friend for life.
“I’ll be eternally grateful,” says Carly on the subject of their ‘asli yaari’ — making it clear that she has his back through thick and thin. “We are both probably two of the busiest people, we travel a ton so it’s not like we’re hanging out every day, but I support him and I know he supports me and I’m very indebted to him,” the ‘I Really Like You’ singer lets on. Whether the world sees him as squeaky clean or a bad, bad boy, Carly couldn’t care less — The Bieb will still be her BFF and main man. Now that’s asli yaari!
