Justin Bieber, the 16-year-old pop music star whose moppy hairdo has inspired teens and tweens around the world, is releasing a memoir.
HarperCollins announced yesterday that it will be publishing "Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story."
The "official illustrated memoir" will "reveal Justin's amazing journey to superstardom," HarperCollins says. The Canadian-born Bieber was discovered on YouTube and is now a multi-platinum recording artist and teen heartthrob.
The hardcover book is said to contain "exclusive, never-before-seen photos." It's due out in October and will sell in the U.S. for $21.99.
Bieber's authorized memoir isn't the only book about his story coming out this fall. Author Chas Newkey-Burden is set to release "Justin Bieber: The Unauthorized Biography" on Nov. 1.
