Posted by , Updated on April 18, 2014

Love him or hate him, it’s impossible to get past the fact that “Bieber fever” has taken over the minds of pubescent teenage girls the world over…or at least we hope it’s limited to that demographic. Like with the impending zombie apocalypse, however, there are several things you should know about Justin Bieber that may or may not help you survive (at the very least they will allow you to communicate with your teenage daughter). To help you out with this we have compiled a list of 25 things you didn’t know about Justin Bieber.

Beat Shaq at basketball

While this is true, it honestly says more about their friendship than it does about Justin’s basketball skills.


Plays basketball backstage during each of his concerts

Justin likes it because he says it “takes his mind off everything” and helps him relax.  While he’s waiting to go on stage or while the crew is setting up he’s back playing some b-ball.


Loves snowboarding

You have to wonder when he has time to go snowboarding but he says he likes to do it.


Non-brand shampoo and conditioner at hotels are the best

According to Justin, name brand is not always the best brand. He even has a personal collection of hotel shampoos.


Favorite sandwich is tomato and mayo on wonder bread

At least he doesn’t have to worry about anyone stealing his lunch.


Has a dog named Baylor who he adopted with girlfriend Selina Gomez

Justin and his girlfriend Selena Gomez decided to adopt a rescue puppy that Justin is convinced hates him.


Has family board game night on the tour bus with his crew

When most of your time is spent away from home and with your crew they become family. So it only fits for them to have family game night.


Favorite movie is Step Brothers

Two aimless middle-aged losers still living at home are forced against their will to become roommates when their parents get married. Apparently he likes silly comedies.


Loves to skateboard

Justin is a huge skateboarding fan and any chance he gets to ride his skateboard he does. His crew, however, doesn’t like it when he skateboards because he may get hurt. This doesn’t phase Justin though as he sneaks away to practice his kick flips!


Has water chugging contests with the crew

Being cooped up in a tour bus for days on end has some interesting side effects…


Wore his first tux this year to the White House Correspondents dinner

Apparently he has mastered driving them with no hands.


Is left-handed

For all you lefties out there who thought you could never amount to anything…here’s your inspiration.


Afraid of sharks but loves jet skiing

Honestly though, who isn’t afraid of sharks? At least when your speeding around in a jet ski you’re a moving target.


The only sneakers he wears multiple times are the ones he wears on stage

Just like you eat a different sandwich every day for lunch, Justin wears a different pair of shoes everyday because…well, he’s Justin.


Plays four instruments, all self-taught

pic #10

As he grew up, Bieber taught himself to play the piano, drums, guitar, and trumpet.


Favorite drink is at Tim Hortons

pic #9

He loves the Iced Cappuccino.


Tries to visit a mall at every city while on tour

pic #8

Considering the fact that he is a teenager this shouldn’t come as a surprise. He can buy his new shoes (#11) and see his fans all in one trip.


Would rather travel by bus than airplane

pic #7

No wonder he loves his bus. It has a private room with a queen size bed as well as 6 bunks. It’s like home away from home.


Never remembers to pack a toothbrush

pic #6

Maybe this is the inspiration behind the new Justin Bieber singing toothbrush?


Loves the ocean

pic #5

In an ideal world Justin would have his sharkless ocean. Unfortunately until then however, he’ll just have to spend his time dodging ferocious underwater predators on his jet ski.


Favorite candy is Big Foots

pic #4

He loves candy, but these are not your average jolly ranchers. They’re called “Big Foot” and not surprisingly they’re straight from his home country of Canada.


Is claustrophobic, especially in a crowded elevator

pic #2

Everyone is afraid of something. Justin is no different.


Has a huge crush on Beyonce

pic #3

Despite his sadness at her marriage, Justin got to meet his idol at this year’s Grammy Awards.  Recalling the encounter, he said: “It was amazing. I was a little nervous but I told her she was very good-looking. Actually she’s super hot.”


Learned to play the drums at age 2

pic #1

When placed on the hotseat Justin was asked what instrument he learned to play first. He told his fans that he was 2 years old when he first started playing the drums. At every concert Justin typically does a solo on the drums because he loves them so much!
