He's the pint size wunderkind from Ontario, Canada who made a Faustian development deal with Usher to become the music industry's only hope, and if you're the kind of parent who lives in mortal fear of your daughter's blossoming hormones, you'll shell at least $29.50 to see the Biebs croon out "Eenie Meenie" tonight at Madison Square Garden. Terrified dads should take solace in the fact that Bieber's brand of smoothie r&b comes with a crafted stage show on par with Lady GaGa's. In the interest of safety, bring earplugs and a flak suit; you never know when an errant water bottle or misplaced tweet could make you fear for your life.
