Happy birthday, Justin Bieber: A look back at simpler times

justin-bieber-2008-radio-disney.jpgJustin Bieber used to be an adorable moppet, all floppy hair and tattoo-free skin, singing songs with lyrics like, "You are my love, you are my heart and we will never ever ever be apart."

Then he started peeing in mop buckets, having friends possibly take the fall for his drugs and getting arrested for alleged DUI and drag racing. Oh, Biebs. And all before he was even in his 20s.

In honor of Bieber's 20th birthday on Saturday (March 1), here's a look back at the beginning. Can it be that it was all so simple then? Here are the Bieb's early, innocent tracks: "Baby," "One Less Lonely Girl" and "U Smile."
