Guess what? Justin Bieber is already a quarter of a century old. We know — crazy. The iconic pop star turned 25 on March 1 and we’re not the only ones who can’t believe our eyes. The singer’s longtime manager, Scooter Braun, took to social media to congratulate his pal on making it to the big 2-5 and the sweet pic he shared along with it really reminded us how far the Canadian crooner has come in his relatively short time on Earth.
“Our first pic and now you are 25. My day 1,” the 37-year-old wrote on Twitter just after midnight on March 1. “You know exactly what it is and how I feel. I love you. Happy birthday you grown ass man. Proud of you.” Hey, can you pass us a tissue? How about the whole box?

The photo in question is of baby Biebs and Scooter, real name Scott, sitting at a diner together back in the day. The nostalgia has got to be real for the newly minted 25-year-old and his manager when it comes to this pic, considering the music mogul actually discovered Justin on YouTube when he was 12 and convinced him and his family to move from Canada to the U.S. to pursue his musical dreams.
Fast forward to 2019 and the singer is a world-renowned artist with four chart-topping albums and a dedicated fanbase most celebs could only dream of. He is also a married man, having tied the knot with model Hailey Baldwin back in September 2018. Plus, with the singer’s dedication to his religious beliefs and the rumors that he’s getting back into the studio to make some more music for us all, we bet there’s a lot for Justin and Scooter to reflect on and celebrate together.
If you’re wracking your brain about where you’ve heard the music manager’s quirky name before, it probably rings a bell because he also represents Ariana Grande, Kanye West, and Carley Rae Jepsen, among other big names in the music industry.
