I found out at the last minute I had a ticket to the LA premiere of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm]‘s new movie, Never Say Never, so of course I jumped at the chance to see it!
I really wanted to go see it so I could give you a sneak peek, and plus, how often do you get to go to a movie premiere? Especially when the special guest is Justin Bieber himself!
I got down to the Nokia Theater and it was madness! All the signs were lit up with Justin’s movie poster and there was a PURPLE carpet – love it!
I couldn’t believe how many celebs came to see the movie. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Miley Cyrus[/lastfm] was next to me and I tried to keep my cool, but she really did look pretty.

Then, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Will Smith[/lastfm] walked up with his lovely wife, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jada Pinkett Smith[/lastfm], and their kids, Jaden and Willow were with them! AHHH! I wanted to whip my hair back and forth, but decided that might not be a good on the Purple Carpet.
Will.I.Am was busy doing tv interviews, but he looked smashing as always. Comedian Kathy Griffin was there too, she is hysterical and I totally think she has a crush on The Biebs. Sorry, Levi Johnson.
I made my way inside and there was a big table with 3-D glasses (purple, of course) and glow sticks. I grabbed mine and also got a popcorn and bottled water and headed to my seat.

By the way, it was kind of funny to see very famous people just making their way to their seats like you and I would. I guess I thought they’d have a special section to sit in, if they even stayed for the movie at all. And they totally did!
Let me tell you, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Usher[/lastfm] walked in with his two little ones and they were adorable. Then, the question I know you’re all wondering…was SHE there? Yes, she was – [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Selena Gomez[/lastfm] walked in the theater wearing a drop dead gorgeous purple minidress. Someone must have given her the memo about the purple theme, wonder who it could have been?
Chris Brown came out to support JB and it was great to see our friends New Boyz there too. Sean Kingston and Whitney Port took their seats and I heard Taylor Momsen was running around in her underwear but sadly, I didn’t run into her. I’m a big GG fan! Oh well.
The lights dimmed and Scooter Braun came out to welcome everyone. The audience went nuts for him. Then Usher came out as well, and everyone screamed even louder. I wondered if I’d be able to hear after JB came out.
He was going to come out and say hello, RIGHT?!?!?! Of course he did! His fans are everything to him, how could he not take the opportunity to thank them and personally introduce Never Say Never.
Never Say Never trailer:
Scooter and Usher introduced Justin Bieber to the audience in the theater and he walked out wearing all black, except for an awesome purple blazer.
The movie screen was SO big that JB looked kind of tiny in front of it. It really kind of reminded me how at the end of the day, he’s just a regular person.
He spoke for a few minutes, saying there were a bunch of things he was “supposed to say” but that he just wanted to speak from his heart. He seemed very grateful to his fans and actually kind of humble. But then again, when you’re staring out in the audience at Will Smith, I guess that happens.
I didn’t know what to expect from Never Say Never. I figured it would probably be just a bunch of concert footage. I didn’t realize it was going to be such a thorough documentary of how this kid went from banging on drums as a toddler to posting videos to YouTube to selling out the legendary Madison Square Garden.
Even if you’re not a huge JB fan, I think you’ll enjoy watching this movie. It’s a very inspiring story and cool to see a kid stay a kid in the midst of becoming one of the most famous people in the world.
There are so many cameos in the movie, too! Miley Cyrus, Usher, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ludacris[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adrian Grenier[/lastfm] – those are only the ones I can remember! By the end of it, we were all dancing and singing in our purple 3-D glasses and it was a seriously fun time.
When it was all over, I worked my way out of the Nokia and was so excited to get a couple of limited edition Never Say Never premiere posters.
Check out the sneak peek of “Never Say Never” from the movie featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jaden Smith[/lastfm]:
I thought, who better to share these with than true Beliebers? Oh wait, did I mention I also got a couple of posters signed by Justin Bieber himself? hehehehe.
