Justin Bieber suits up nicely next to Ciara as they attend the New Look Foundation’s First Annual World Leadership Awards at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta on Friday night (August 6).

The 16-year-old musician received the UNL Honoree: Global Youth Leader Award.

The World Leadership Awards, which will bring together heads of state, civic and community leaders, philanthropists, and celebrities, will honor eight individuals for their commitment to supporting youth as leaders and change agents of some of our world’s most pressing issues.


Even by teen-sensation standards, it has been a big week for Justin Bieber.

The Canadian pop singer announced Monday that he will star as himself in a 3D biopic to be released in time for next Valentine's Day.

And he says he's also at work on a memoir, due in October. The book is titled Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story. A comic book about the 16-year-old singer also comes out in October.

On Twitter, Bieber called the movie project "incredible news." The movie, as yet untitled, will include footage of his current tour, which swings into Scotiabank Place on Aug. 24. Davis Guggenheim, who won an Oscar for helming An Inconvenient Truth, is in negotiations to direct.

How hot is Bieber? New York magazine, which usually skips teen sensations, profiles him in its current issue.

Here are 12 things we learned from the feature, written by Alex Morris....


Despite his tender age, Justin Bieber is accepted as one of their own by pop's biggest stars.

Whether he's crank calling Miley Cyrus, accepting a Lamborghini from P Diddy, or filming his own 3D movie, his life is not that of the average 16-year-old.

But Bieber still has some catching up to do in one department - height.

The teen was overshadowed by the statuesque pop star Ciara as they posed together on the red carpet yesterday. The 24-year-old singer was head and shoulders above Bieber. But at 16 Bieber has more than enough time to catch up. His current height is thought to be around 5ft 4. The height difference didn't put off the Baby singer, who posed with his arm wrapped around the slender beauty's waist.

The pair were amongst the guests at the New Look Foundation's Annual World Leadership Awards in Atlanta, Georgia. Thy were joined by Bieber's manager Usher, who set up the foundation.

Baby-faced Bieber is currently busy writing his biography, First Step 2 Forever: My Story, telling his modern-day fairytale. The Canadian star was being raised by his single mother when he was discovered on the web, and signed by Usher.

He is also preparing for the release of his new single, U Smile. He tweeted: 'The song is dedicated to the fans so this one is for all of u!! Radio here we come!!'


Justin Bieber, the man..coming soon. Oh, I can't wait! ;)
