Well, Justin Bieber has certainly struck gold in the past few months and pretty much reinvented himself after teaming up with Skrillex.

His new album 'Purpose' has topped the charts in more than 100 different countries around the world.

So far, his official singles have been Where Are You Now?, What Do You Mean?, Sorry, and Love Yourself, which Justin co-wrote with Ed Sheeran. He made videos for all of the Purpose tracks and weirdly most of the videos don't even feature Justin Bieber at all, I think he's only in two. Didn't seem to make any difference to album sales though.

Yes, the Purpose album sold over half a million copies in its first week alone and became his 6th number one album.

Around the world it has gone platinum in many countries and has been sold over 2 billion times.

Forbes magazine say that Justin Bieber is now in the top ten most powerful celebs on the planet, and of course he is just about to embark on a huge world tour. The Purpose Tour starts on March 9th in Seattle, and because many dates quickly sold out, new dates have been added, so tickets are still available for some gigs. In total there are currently 112 concerts, ending on November 29th at the O2 Stadium in London.

Justin is also performing in the UK between October 11th and November 2nd, in cities such as Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester and Sheffield.

Shame we can't afford it, because they are between £100 and £230 per ticket at the moment. Someone is raking it in, aren't they Justin? He's already worth over US$200 million, and he's set to earn over US$50 million in 2016 touring, apparently.
