    will be a legend for the next two weeks then somebody else will replace him...do you remember New Kids on the block? I wonder if they still more popular than The Beatles.

    No. Not even to the Beliebers. He wouldn't even be somewhat lasting icon.

    His name will shine down through the ages, along with that of Rick Astley.

    He would be immortalized in the R&R Hall of Fame with the rest of the greats. Bieber is a legend.

    He is a short term icon? ..He (she) WAS. I can hardly spot him (her) anywhere, he (she) is already forgoten. Nobody cares about him anymore...

    or Katy Perry... or One Direction... and on down the Pop Top 40 you can go with this one. None are legends IMO. The only reason people remember Brittney Spears is because her insane antics of late.

    If people on the internet quit mentioning Justin Bieber so much, does the internet become a better place?

    I will take a bold stance here and say Bieber does have talent. He has good pitch... I think his musical talents stop there though.

    He clearly has some good coaches, the kid is pretty darn good at P.R.

    As far as the OP's question, Bieber will never be a legend. Even the "legends" of the boy band/star genre aren't really legends beyond the women that were once little girls screaming. Donny Osmond anybody?

    (And the Osmonds rocked even rocked at on time)
