Forbes is recognizing teens for their hard work, and naturally , Selena, Jobro, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are listed among the 11 Most Successful Teen Celebrity Entrepreneurs.
We’re not surprised that Miley, Justin or any of the other teen stars on the list made the cut. Forbes considered celebs who have been able to balance careers in multiple industries — music, film, TV, publishing and fashion — while also finding time for charity work on the side.
Justin BIeber is recognized for his impressive Internet skills. As you all know, Justin launched his career using YouTube, and created a huge fan community on Twitter and Facebook that has set off the Bieber Fever epidemic.
Miley Cyrus on the other hands, has managed to score deals in nearly every category. Her success with Hannah Montana skyrocketed, and was the basis for her non-Disney singing and acting pursuits.
Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bieber’s career was launched not through the Nickelodeon/Disney machines but on YouTube. A native of Ontario, Canada, Bieber built an online audience by performing cover songs. After he was discovered by a music agent, Usher and Justin Timberlake vied to sign him. Usher won, and Bieber went with Island/Def Jam. In addition to promotional deals with 1-800-Flowers and Microsoft’s Xbox, he recently hosted Saturday Night Live and recorded the theme song for the new Karate Kid.

Naughty Bieber, he once stole his teacher’s pen so he could change his grade on an exam.
Justin Bieber says he used to lie all the time, and even changed his fail grade to a pass so his mother wouldn’t find out how badly he had done in an exam.
Justin told Top of the Pops magazine. “I tell a lot of lies,” “A couple of years ago. I had an F grade on a test at school, but I turned it into a B with the teacher’s pen!
“My mom had to sign that she’d seen it before I took it back, so she had no idea how bad it actually was!”
Justin has also lied to his mother about more trivial things. He once told her he had handmade a cake for her birthday, when he had in fact purchased it from a local shop.
“It’s not the first time I’ve lied,” he laughed. “I told her I’d baked her a cake for her birthday once, but I really just bought it from a baker. I would’ve if I knew how, but I was afraid I’d mess it up.”
