Justin Bieber has already blown $1 million to impress Selena Gomez


Very few male teen singing sensations (with the dubious exception of Justin Timberlake) demonstrate any lasting power past puberty, but Justin Bieber doesn’t appear to have learned anything from the countless examples of fallen teen idols or, for that matter, the sad fate of M.C. Hammer, who managed to spend $50 million in just a couple of short years. So far, we’ve heard Justin’s been blowing his money on $25,000 custom Stewie bling and chartered helicopter rides to whisk his beloved, Selena Gomez, away for romantic dinners. Has he ever heard of calling a cab? This is not to mention the time that he bought out a florist’s entire inventory to impress his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. Now, Justin’s camp is allegedly worried about all of the money he’s spending on Selena, which reportedly adds up to at least $1 million:

Someone ought to slip Justin Bieber a copy of The Beatles hit, “Can’t Buy Me Love.” Friends are concerned that the teen sensation is burning a hole through his hard-earned fortune in a desperate bid to impress his two-years-older girlfriend, Selena Gomez. According to one friend, the pop star, 17, has already spent a cool million on Selena since they first started dating earlier this year. “Each date is a production, from bodyguards to flowers, private jets to catered meals,” the friend tells In Touch. “Plus, he guys her major gifts. It’s all adding up pretty quickly.”

If Bieber were wise — and I’ve neither heard nor read any accounts of him being just that — he’d save his money in case his desire to be a young dad ends up coming to fruition (in the form of a much feared accidental pregnancy) sooner rather than later. Of course, Bieber probably thinks he’ll be rich and famous forever like most celebrities believe, but the odds are against him. The question remains, however, how long will Selena and Justin stay together? If and when they break up, he’ll certainly regret spending that million on her.

    That’s just ridiculous..can’t his mother step in and w/ a financial intervention..or is she one of those celebrity moms afraid of being cut off if she sets boundaries?

  2. Quest says:

    Biebs don’t take advice so when his financial troubles starts and the couchie-coo relationship is over, we will just have to sit back and wait for the “Where are they now” episodes

  3. Has he reached puberty yet?

  4. normades says:

    Beibs just does not get that he’s just a flash in the pan (pre)teen idol. He’s spending like there’s no tomorrow, but when tomorrow comes he’s in for a big reality check.

  5. Lee says:

    Weird how these “kids” just don’t get how transitory it all is – both the fame and the money. He’ll be unappealingly grown-up all too soon, forgotten on the dust-heap of all previous teen idols (Shaun Cassidy et al.) Funny how he can’t see it coming. Won’t be funny to him or his creditors though.

  6. The Truth Fairy says:

    Maybe he’s going to have a long and successful career like Justin Timberlake. But he should really save his money because he could just as easily go the way of Vanilla Ice.

  7. ocean says:

    Sad. Shame on his parents for not teaching their son, how to manage and set money aside so that he has something to live on when he becomes yesterdays news. If my kid ever became a tween celebrity Id make sure that they put money into savings that collect good interest. However, this kid is going to learn the hard way and in a couple years he is going to be flat broke and down on his luck

  8. ShanKat says:

    His parents should be slapped around.

  9. Sol says:

    So sad he needs to spend so much money only to impress her.There are inexpensive ways to impress a girl.
    Maybe she isn’t the right one.

  10. Elizabeth says:

    His father was never in his life much (except since he got rich and famous, sadly) and his mother is in a tough spot because he’s 17 and doesn’t want to listen to anyone. Its too bad – he has no idea how it could all be gone soon. And that could have nothing to do with him working hard – he may just go out of fashion.

  11. Feebee says:

    Some have to learn the hard way.

  12. anne_000 says:

    I wonder why his mother doesn’t have stricter control of his ‘allowance.’ I know he made the money, but doesn’t his mother have to sign his contracts since he’s still a minor? Unless he emancipates himself, I guess…

  13. Happy21 says:

    She says she’s in love with him. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t expect these things. I think that his mum should for sure step in. He is still a minor. But, on the other hand, even if he is just flash in a pan he’s a kid and maybe his mum should just let him do what he is gonna do while he has the chance. I see if from both sides. The wisest way though is to reign in the spending so he has money for the rest of his life even if he is flash in a pan.

  14. tripmom says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Where are this kid’s parents? And why don’t they seem to get that it doesn’t matter what Justin wants? He’s a MINOR and HAS NO LEGAL CONTROL over his money. Step in and do something already! What horrible people.

  15. Jover says:

    Sign on with everyone; he’s headed for the trash heap of VH1′s where are they now sooner than he thinks – and I have no sympathy for this conceited little snot – and as for Selena, face it she probably is more decent than most “stars” but she can’t sing live to save her soul, and without the disney machine she’d be nothing; I don’t see either of them having much of a future because they have no adult audiences, it’s all disney tweens. Maybe the Biebster can find a career in 2 am zit cream infomercials.

  16. sosuzy says:

    If the Biebs wants to look into a crystal ball at his future all he has to do is look at Donny Osmond….

  17. Ally says:

    Selena is starting to look like a young Sofia Vergara.

  18. april says:

    I would think $1M is way overinflated. Regardless, she’s a lucky girl!

  19. eternalcanadian says:

    If Justin wants to impress Selena, he should grow up and start acting responsibly (like no drag-racing on roads) and wear proper trousers that don’t hang down to his knees!
