Puberty strikes again: Justin Bieber’s voice cracks along with a million hearts

Fearless leader Justin Bieber is finally hitting puberty, which means the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here: the 16-year-old’s voice is changing. “It cracks,” Bieber recently admitted. “Like every teenage boy, I’m dealing with it, and I have the best vocal coach in the world. Some of the notes I hit on ‘Baby’ I can’t hit anymore. We have to lower the key when I sing live.”

We’re a bit skeptical since news outlets are using the same Bieber quote and not crediting where they got it from (unless Bieber told an entire room of reporters about this). But voices do change over time. Just listen to Hanson circa 1997 (when Taylor was 14) and Hanson circa 2010 (he’s now 27). Hell, even Whitney can’t hit the high notes anymore. It’ll be interesting to see if The Biebs’ mobs continue to storm airports once his voice changes. Hanson’s fans pretty much dried up once the band grew up. But the real question on everyone’s mind is that once Bieber grows up, what will happen to the site Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber?
