Justin Bieber gets birthday surprise on 'Ellen'

Our little pop star is all grown up! Justin Bieber turns 18 today, and when he's not being gifted with a new ride, he's celebrating by giving back.

Bieber revealed to fans via MTV that his birthday plans included spending time with friends and family, "have a little get together, nothing too crazy."

But the lead-up to his 18th also included a stop by Ellen DeGeneres' show, where his manager, Scooter Braun, surprised him with a swanky, eco-friendly present.


"He does things for the right reasons," Braun says of Bieber, telling him, "You work really, really hard, and I always yell at you, don't get anything flashy, we're not about that, be humble. And I kind of broke my own rule."

And because Bieber loves cars, "We wanted to make sure you were environmentally friendly...and we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out a bit on the road. So Justin, that's a Fisker Karma. Usher and I wanted to do this for you, since you never do anything for yourself."

Ellen's contribution to Bieber's birthday gift? A lovely (and practical!) windshield sunshade bearing the image of a heart with her face and Justin's on it, and an Ellen bobble-head for his dashboard.

As he did last year, the singer is also aiming to raise money for Charity: Water, a non profit that provides clean drinking water in developing nations.

Bieber tweeted yesterday, "[I] want to use my bday to help others. if u want please donate $18 to @charitywater on my 18th bday!...[S]o blessed. so moved. so grateful. cant believe this is my life. never going to take it for granted. always going to give back. thank you."

    If he's big on being environmentally friendly, he needs to stop consuming animals. The meat industry is a huge environmental mess. But just like many celebritwits, he's a faux-environmentalist.

    Bieber does not have to put on makeup and groom himself so he looks like a gay woman. He looks like a skinny Chaz Bono. And you girls think he is cute. Future lesbians.

    Bieber looks more like a girl than Ellen. He looks like a gay woman. Imagine him in a military uniform. I have a 1 yr old daughter who watches Disney, younger boys than him look more like a man than he does. All of these young girls think he is so cute. He looks like a gay woman. When these girls get 18 they will be lesbians, they will be dating girls that dress like boys, because that is what they have learned.

    I hope everyone here is smart enough to realize anything this little turd does for charity is a PR move created by his reps. Good PR=more money

      I've actually met him and will verify that he is quite awful indeed. Him and Beyonce might be the two worst celebrities in all of the industry. That reason alone I refuse to support any of their ventures.

      even if it was a pr stunt, he's still doing good works for society. i'm sure nobody would turn away his money or fame to help promote their cause. pr or not, he's still doing the right thing.

      Thanks for doing that for me, but I have to agree that Adele is quite large and rather in charge.

      Willing to wager 100$ you will never hear from her again after this year.

    • nbafan is a lousy troll

      Don't talk about money you don't have or are not willing to give up.
