Justin Bieber is officially applying for American citizenship.
Since being discovered on YouTube nearly ten years ago, Bieber has spent the majority of his career within the United States. Originally from Canada, Bieber moved to the U.S. at age 13 at the advice of Scooter Braun and Usher. Additionally, Justin’s recent engagement to model Hailey Baldwin may be one of the motivators behind his decision to seek citizenship.
The singer has the option of revoking his Canadian citizenship, however based on his recent property purchases that doesn’t seem like the avenue young Justin is going to take. Bieber recently bought a 5 million dollar mansion atop 101 acres in his home province of Ontario.
