Bieber’s album, which critics have widely lauded, also shattered Spotify’s global record for most streams in the first week of an album’s release after logging 205 million streams across the globe, according to Nielsen Music. Bieber broke the Internet in the most embarrassing way when fully nude photos of the star on vacation snapped by a pap were widely circulated and analyzed. After rabid fans got overly excited upon his arrival in a Melbourne airport, he took to Snapchat to ask them to be more respectful and laid out his rules of engagement when it came to asking for selfies (“If you start screaming louder that’s not going to make me want to take a photo more,” he offered). And he even halted one performance to scold fans that they were clapping off-beat before demonstrating the correct way to clap to his music. “If you’re going to clap, at least clap on-beat.” “I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting,” Bieber wrote in a lengthy mea culpa after the Oslo incident.

But as he’s continued to prove onstage — including most recently at the American Music Awards, where he closed the show with a spectacular medley — music speaks louder than words.
