Justin Bieber Theme for Windows 7

Microsoft has recently released a Justin Bieber theme for Windows 7 following his inspirational “rags to riches” story. The theme is available for downloading for free for all Windows 7 users. Justin Bieber, who is a global superstar and a teen sensation, was a street performer in the small town of Stratford, Ontario before he was discovered on YouTube in 2008. He shot to fame when his uploaded videos on YouTube were noticed by Scooter Braun who is currently the Manager of the singer.

Since then, the teenaged Canadian singer and actor has never looked back. With a huge fan following among teens, he still has more haters who think his music lacks quality and the fad would soon pass away. But for his innumerable fans or Beliebers as they are called, the theme based on his 3-D concert film, Never Say Never, is soon going to be a rage for sure. Although this type of marketing was not expected from such a leading tech giant, this is the first time that a company like Microsoft has indulged in this kind of publicity. Whatever be the reason for this, the theme is certainly going to be a craze for his teenaged computer savvy fans.
