Justin Bieber Buys Private Jet for Christmas, Calls It a “She”

When you're worth 200 million dollars and you close this year with a total 80 million income then Christmas is definitely going to be special. We’re used to seeing hitmakers dropping a new Lamborghini every a couple of months or so the same way we buy a new jacket, but the coolest thing in the showbizz comes by air nowadays. Justin Bieber is the newest member of this unique club.

In case you’re bragging about poor, old Santa not being too bountiful this year, maybe you’re right. In fact, we’re sure you deserve more, we’re sure you’ve been a nice person the entire year, working hard and helping other people. But at the end of the day, the only fair question is how much money do you make.

You might not like Justin Bieber’s “Amazing” hit, heck you might not like the 20-year old pop star’s music at all, but you should know his style pays off. The Canadian singer now holds the No. 1 spot on the Forbes’ list of top celebrity earners under 30, with a reported net worth of $200 million total. Most of the earnings come from music sales, merchandise, product endorsements and touring.

Point is, buying luxury sportscars is not enough anymore for this fellow. Who cares about Audi R8 and Ferrari 458 Italia when you can skip traffic by air, right? Looking at the pictures Bieber posted on his social network accounts, it would seem the new private jet is able to fit at least 11 people in those comfy-looking brown, leather seats.

Why do we care? Because we’re trying to guess what type of a jet this baby is. Using Google’s large wisdom for half a minute, you’ll find that one of the most popular private small jets on the market is the Gulfstream G650 model. The model is designated Gulfstream GVI in its type certificate and it’s the company’s largest and fastest business jet with a top speed of Mach 0,925 (704 mph).
Do you have 60 million dollars to spend, at least? Then, it's yours
Now, these puppies come with a capacity ranging from 11 to 18 passengers and, of course, the specific custom luxury features. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Deutschland turbofans, each engine comes with a maximum thrust of 17,000 pounds-force (75.6 kN) and together they give the private jet a range of 7,000 nautical miles (8,050 miles/12,960 km).

We’re talking about the highest level of luxury traveling that you can find. That does, however, come with a price. Around 60 million dollars, to be more precise, but that can obviously vary a lot.

Did Bieber really buy a private jet that expensive? Well, Floyd Mayweather, another proud private jet owner, just confirmed it on Instagram quoting: “@JustinBieber Welcome to the Jet Club! Yes, I got a 14 passenger jet. Got to give them another reason to hate, but I will motivate the people that are ambitious and want to be winners in life. I am guilty! I'm materialistic & I'm motivated by money...but GOD is first in my life. GOD will not give you anything you can't handle. That's why GOD gave me the best hands in the business to pray with, box with and count money with.

Remember how the song goes: “So you wanna be a rock superstar and live large?/ A big house, five cars, you're in charge/ Comin' up in the world, don't trust nobody/ Got to look over your shoulder constantly”.
