Society has a tendency to corrupt minds, especially young minds, into thinking they’re supposed to fit a perfect mold. Spoiler alert: perfection doesn’t exist. If one person in this world had to be rewarded for acquiring an astronomical amount of success over the past five years, we’d expect Justin Bieber to start preparing his acceptance speech. Justin’s extreme level of success makes us wonder, is he the biggest artist of all time?
