Well, it's happening. Justin Bieber is returning to Nashville. When he appeared at Bridgestone back in August of 2010, we wondered just how long it would be "before he hits puberty, his voice gets too mannish for the average mini-van soundsystem, and we've all abandoned him for the next pretty young shiny object of our affections." The joke's on us, it would seem, as the Biebs remains a force to be reckoned with. Sure, he lost the impish haircut, and his voice — which you can hear on his recent, Mother's Day-released single "Turn to You" after the jump — has grown to sound kind of like that of Tracy Chapman. Even so, the Biebs has over 20 million Twitter followers, and according to Wiki, "his popularity on Twitter at one point accounted for three percent of all Twitter related traffic, with a Twitter employee commenting that 'racks of servers are dedicated' to Bieber." Also, his recent single, "Boyfriend," debuted at No. 1 in 32 countries ... which is terrifying in its way.
Anyhow, if you're in JB's fan club, then you almost certainly aren't reading this, but you can pre-order your tickets for Bieber's Jan. 18, 2013, appearance at Bridgestone Arena today beginning at noon.
