The year 2013 wasn't very kind to Bieber; a paparazzo died in oncoming traffic after attempting to take a photo of the singer's car. A week later, photos hit the Web alleging marijuana use by Bieber. The singer kept his sense of humor through the ordeal, joking about it in his first stint as host of "Saturday Night Live." Here he performs in Washington in December. Paul Morigi/Getty Images/File
Bieber cleans up at the American Music Awards in November, but the young artist is left out completely when the Grammy nominations are announced a few weeks later. Add an alleged murder plot to the mix, and it's fair to say December 2012 wasn't the best month for the Biebs. Kevin Winter/Getty Images/File
Bieber's relationship with Selena Gomez seemed to end at the end of 2012, although their actions sparked rumors of reconciliation just about every other week. Regardless of their on-again, off-again status, Bieber chose to take his mom, Pattie Mallette, as his date to the 2012 American Music Awards. Jason Merritt/Getty Images/File
The Biebs has a knack for concert mishaps. He managed to run into a wall of glass backstage in Paris in June 2012, and in the fall of that year, he got sick onstage before moving on with his performance in Glendale, Arizona. Here he performs at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in October 2012. Kevin Winter/Getty Images/File

Bieber's immense fan base comes out in full force when the singer releases his album "Believe." The disc not only went to No. 1, but it also had the year's biggest entry on the Billboard 200. How many can do that and graduate from high school (which he did in 2012) at the same time? Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images/File
Bieber makes his bread and butter as a teen pop phenom, but his social circle is wide. His appearance as part of boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s entourage at a fight in May 2012 had everyone doing a double take. Lil Wayne and 50 Cent were also on hand. Al Bello/Getty Images/File
When you're Justin Bieber, you get a $100,000 electric sports car for your 18th birthday -- and on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, no less. X17online.com
The Biebs attends the NRJ Music Awards in January 2012, but he stays busy giving back when he's not hitting the red carpet. A month later, he made a special Valentine's Day trip to a girl suffering from cancer. Photos he shared from their time together quickly went viral. Getty Images/File
Bieber had some of the "most influential hair" of 2011 and also was ranked as one of the most charitable stars. Here, he showed off his style with Paris Jackson at the Michael Jackson hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles. Kevin Winter/Getty Images/File
Bieber was embroiled in a baby mama scandal when he attended the 2011 American Music Awards with Selena Gomez, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the happy couple. A year later, Bieber and Gomez would no longer be an item. Valerie Macona/AFP/Getty Images/File
