Teen idol Justin Bieber has received an 18th birthday gift that other teenagers can only dream of.
The chart-topping singer was presented with a Fisker Karma by his manager Scott Braun, live on the Ellen Degenes Show Thursday.
The exclusive car, an electric-powered luxury sedan, is valued at around 100,000 dollars. ‘You work really really hard,’ Braun said. ‘I always yell at you, ‘Don’t get anything flashy!’ You know, we’re not about that. Be humble, be humble. And I kind of broke my own rule.’
Braun bought the gift together with Bieber’s mentor Usher, who said he wanted to give the singer a car ‘that would make him stand out on the road.’
Bieber thanked the two with the words, ‘This is amazing.’ But he may not feel that way when he sees how much the insurance will cost.
