Remember how adorable Justin Bieber was??

Sure the Biebs may not even be old enough to drink (although March 1 is fast approaching), but you can't argue that the guy has lived. You might not even realize that Justin has been active in music over half as long as The Beatles were, and for some reason that is just mind-blowing.

And then we remembered that today is the five year anniversary of the epic "Baby" music video that broke records and hearts everywhere. Turns out we're a little nostalgic for young Bieber.
