It’s easy for Justin Bieber to say never say never. At 16 he’s seen pretty much all of his wildest dreams come true. After becoming famous on the Internet with homemade YouTube videos of himself singing, Usher and Justin Timberlake fought over the opportunity to produce his first album. Released just after his sixteenth birthday, My World 2.0 immediately hit number one. Now Justin tours the world, preforming before thousands of screaming, lovesick fans. They even have a special name for themselves, “the Beliebers,” which is a play on the word “believers.”

Recently, Justin released a film about his path to stardom called Never Say Never. Justin says that never say never is his favorite saying. If you never say never, you believe that anything is possible. You never say that something will never happen, and you always believe in your dreams, even if they are as crazy as becoming rich and famous overnight, like Justin did.

What are your dreams? Do you never say never?
