Love him or hate him, there’s no ignoring Justin Bieber‘s stardom. Whatever your notion may be, the fact that a young boy has become a phenom is laudable. In his latest concert film ‘Believe’, Justin stands up against his haters. He asserts:
When you reach a certain point in your life, there are people out there who sit, waiting, wanting to see you fall. But rather than let gravity take you down, sometimes, you have to take matters into your own hands and fly.
Directed by the guy who gave us Step Up 3D and GI Joe: Retaliation (Jon M. Chu), this concert film biopic takes us on a journey that comprises of fame, success, love, humility and belief. FYI, he is also directing the sequel of Now You See Me.
‘Believe‘ reveals a side of Justin Bieber that most of the world has not seen. The left-handed king of teen pop pens down his own songs and even plays the piano, guitar and the drums. He might be one of the most sought-after youth icons of our time, but he stays humble and does not let the fame get to his head.
As Bieber embarks on his Believe tour, we see that he has grown a pair… of wings. The exclusive concert footage unfolds, and parallely we see Justin Bieber talk about his passion for music, being in love and his fans. The film also features Usher, Scooter Braun and Justin’s mother among others, who have a lot to say about Justin! Also, watch out for cameos by Ellen DeGeneres, Nicki Minaj, Ryan Seacrest, Zach Galifianakis and Ludacris.
For Justin, his fans are his life. Whether they are pouncing on him like piranhas or getting his face inked on their thighs (yeah, that actually happened – as you’ll see in the movie), he simply adores them all!
Mr. Chu has done a phenomenal job in capturing all the behind-the-scenes action, the controversies, and what goes into putting a concert tour together. He brilliantly tells the story of a superstar who is constantly being judged and is always in search for validation. All Justin wants is for people to believe in him.
