Never Say Never

Before he was the “Despacito” singing, heavily-tattooed Justin Bieber we all know (and love?) today, he was a clean-cut pop star who was the object of millions of tweens’ affection. This documentary follows the Biebs as he prepares for his 2010 world tour. It’s available on Netflix.

There’s one particularly poignant moment that will stick with you months after you’ve finished watching: Perry is sobbing about her heartbreak seconds before she hits the stage, then you watch her collect herself, and turn into the smiling, energetic performer we’re all used to seeing.
