Just before Justin Bieber performed for a throng of adoring, rain-soaked fans (and their ever-ready camera phones) on the Today show Thursday (Sept. 10) morning in New York City, the hosts presented the pop star with a plaque commemorating a major honor.
As previously reported, JB has become the youngest male artist to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “What Do You Mean?”, his new single and first No. 1 hit on the chart. The good folks at Guinness World Records stopped by the Today show to deliver the plaque, which the hosts then handed to Bieber before he delivered “Where Are U Now” and “Boyfriend.”
After the music, Bieber swung by the Today interior set to answer a few questions. “I didn’t leave, but I took some time to do some soul-searching,” Bieber admitted when asked about his musical hiatus. When asked if he’d be interested in performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Bieber casually agreed. “I’d be interested. I’m down,” he said. As for a Taylor Swift Super Bowl performance, he simply offered, “That’d be great.”
The NFL recently invited back Bruno Mars for the next Super Bowl Halftime Show.
