The purple carpet rolled out for Justin Bieber at the star-studded premiere of his 3-D concert film Believe in L.A. on Wednesday. Looking slick in a red suit, white loafers, and sunglasses, the 19-year-old superstar turned on the charm as he posed for photos and signed autographs for fans.
He was joined by his family and friends including his mentor Usher, manager Scooter Braun, mother Pattie Mallette, and grandparents.
Other stars including Jaden Smith, Mike Posner, Meagan Good, Gabby Douglas, Maejor Ali, and Kylie Jenner came bearing unwrapped toys, which were donated to needy children.
Graffiti artist Alec Monopoly created an art piece live on site, inspired by the artwork for Justin’s upcoming Journals album, and auctioned it off to charity.
