Calling 2013 a whirlwind year for the "All That Matter" singer, Justin Bieber is an understatement. Between his on-and-off again relationship with Selena Gomez, constant battles with media outlets, and various scandals ranging from his rendezvous with an escort to owning an illegal pet, Bieber's faced avid scrutiny this past year. Some claim that Bieber's year has mainly been composed of mishaps, a false retirement, and craze. Throughout the pandemonium, Bieber immersed himself in charitable acts, including granting his 200th wish for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The attention he has received, however, this year has not reflected the charitable acts he has completed, but more-so Bieber's received attention for the negative aspects of the controversy-filled year. Amidst the controversy, there appears a charitable, altruistic version of Bieber that seemingly no one is focusing on, along with him reflecting an artist of extreme growth and of one who is converting the haters.
The charitable aspects of Bieber's career are in part due to his close-relationship with manager, Scooter Braun. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Braun revealed that every deal he makes must include some sort of aspect in which the artist must give back. If the deal doesn't hold any charitable components, the deal will not happen.
Though the acts in which Justin has given back do not excuse the mishaps he's stirred this year, it's paramount to note the aspects of his career that don't solely involve the negatives: what most aren't focusing on. Though the altercations with paparazzi, noisy parties, and reckless driving did occur, this list provides insight to the other side of Justin Bieber's 2013 - the side not often portrayed by the media, with both his musical and altruistic accomplishments.
