The Biebz gets ‘The X Factor’ judge’s seal of approval for taking his stardom into his own hands!

Is Justin Bieber just another teen idol? One of those “here today, gone tomorrow” sort-of celebs?

Absolutely NOT! Or so says Simon Cowell.

The former bad-boy American Idol judge who is getting ready to launch X-Factor says the J-Biebs craze is not just another fad — Justin is here to stay!

“I think he’s got a long career ahead of him,” Simon tells

Why? Simon says it’s because he’s a self-made music man.

“He’s done his own Internet posting and built up his own fan base himself, he plays music, he has a very grown-up relationship with his manager…I think he’s bright,”  Simon explains.

We certainly hope Biebs can hold onto his successful career — we’d love to hear him perform for years to come!

So do you agree with Simon– will Justin have a long career as a star?
