      Well no offense, but I think it's a bit too soon to be even asking this question about Justin Bieber.  Sure, it's easy to speculate now based on how well his popularity is at the moment, but we don't know how much longevity his career has, as his songs aren't really that great.  Therefore, I think if he's still popular like say ten years from now, then we can pull out the measuring stick to see how far he ranks next to Michael Jackson and Elvis.  However, for right now, it's too soon.  Besides, would you dare try to ask if Miley Cyrus is the next Madonna or Cher, at this point in her career?  I sure as hell wouldn't, as it's still too soon.  Therefore, I'd say wait ten years and if Justin Bieber is still having sold out concerts all the time, then we can start drawing comparisons.

    He seems more like the Beatles back in their "I Want To Hold Your Hand" days to me. Whether he manages to transcend that and be more than a flash-in-the-pan remains to be seen.

    Justin Beeber is just a kid, who is lucky that he has millions of teenage girls drooling over him. He has no talent. A more likely comparison would be the New Kids On The Block. Give him a couple years, and he will fade away like every other child act that has come and gone. Then maybe come back 20 years from now, and put out the same stuff he is doing now. Justin Timberlake, maybe. But, Elvis? No way.

    People also compare Adam Lambert to Elvis. And, Adam is a million times more talented than Justin Beeber. But, the only comparison to Elvis is Adam's looks. But, Nobody will ever be the next Elvis. He was not only a singer, he also acted, and did sold out shows in Vegas for years. The only person I can think of that would even come close to Elvis is Cher. And she is till going strong.

    Is more likely to be the next Donny Osmond, falling into obscurity, or go off the rails in five years like Macauley Culkin.

    Teeny bopper idols come and go. Most of them just fade away, like Leif Garrett or Jonathan Taylor Thomas. He'll probably continue performing for a few more years, but since no one over the age of 16 is interested in his music (other than Usher and Johnny Depp) he'll start doing more acting. As his popularity wanes he'll get fewer offers and eventually he'll just go back to a normal life.

    The difference between Bieber and Elvis/MJ is that Elvis and Michael Jackson produced groundbreaking music. They couldn't just fade away, because there was no one there to replace them.

    Well it was just reported that Justin Bieber's documentary made far more money than Michael Jackson's "This is It" documentary, for those wanting to know.  although i think the 3-D aspect helped out a lot too. wink  lollol

    Interesting question  , but it says way more for the mentality of those who like Justin , or Micheal or the Beatles for that matter.  I think that music , especially pop music , although not just pop , contemporary , country , jazz you name the genre and the same thing applies to each! Todays music is so infused with the promotional hype and marketing that the music world has been reduced to  mediocre at best in the quality , and in the individuality . Justin Bieber is just one example of the epidemnic of today.....Boring! So many of the "celebrities" today are just average at best , average singers with a microphone. As A lover of music , and believe me ,I grew up in the sixties and seventies , I have to say our standards for musical quality and vocal excellence , is substandard. If you have money behind you for promotion and a "sticktuitivfness" mentality any one can do the dance.

    I'll tell you the same thing I have tried to explain to my daughters. All of this teeny-bopper music is the same garbage, regurgitated generation after generation. I don’t even know if you can call what they expel as music as they are simply using the same repetitive beat and similarly cheesy lyrics. I for one will be surprised if he's around two years from now.
    From my perspective, to even compare what he does to real artists, and rock and roll is offensive.

    At least Elvis and MJ left a legacy, I don't see Justin Bieber's songs becoming legendary songs in decades from now.

    Yes but Elvis , MJ,Prince , and so many more leave legasies of drug abuse , excentisism or wierdness, extremely anti social behavior at times too. We have to teach our kids about music in the sense of quality of life. Idolizing is more the issue ,I think , and we fail to teach the young that glorifying stupidity or idolizing mediocraty is a recipe for setting substandard goals and dreams for real success in life.
