Happy 18th Birthday, Justin Bieber!

It feels like he’s been in the spotlight forever, but despite selling approximately 30 gajillion records in his life, Justin Bieber just became a legal adult today.

The Biebs celebrated his big day by taping an appearance on Ellen in which he announced the name and release date of his new single. The track, titled “Boyfriend,” will drop March 26th. Justin co-wrote the song and describes it by saying, “Basically I’m talking to this girl, ‘if I was your boyfriend I would never let you go.'”

The taping was full of surprises, as Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, made an appearance to present his meal ticket with a hybrid luxury sedan known as a Fisker Karma. it was a far cry from my own 18th birthday, in which I walked to a corner store to stock up on lotto tickets.

Sadly, Justin still won’t be able to vote in the 2012 elections, as turning 18 doesn’t make him any less Canadian. On the plus side, the fantasies of millions of middle-aged women just became slightly less creepy.
