NJ Teen Who Asked Justin Bieber To Prom Finally Going To Meet His Idol

Remember Leon Purvis, the 16-year-old New Jersey student who asked Justin Bieber to his junior prom?

Well, J-Bieb didn’t go, but his manager, Scooter Braun, has extended a special VIP invitation to Purvis (now 17), including two meet-and-greet passes and free tickets to Bieber’s November 4 show in Philadelphia.

Dreams really do come true—eventually.

Last year, when Purvis sent out the call, he asked “Justin Bieber, would you like to come to my prom with me? Not as a date—just as a friend, as a brother.”

    “…just as a friend, as a brother.” Right!


    this guy is straight. justin bieber is straight, till proved otherwise. they’re not attending the prom together, bro or otherwise. therefore, why is this here?

    A bigger question is just why. Yuck!

    This kid is awesome. I recall watching his prom invite video. He truly is a big Bieber fan and I’m happy for him that Justin acknowledged his efforts. If I were 16 and got to meet my idol (i.e., Ricky Martin) I would be over the moon. You just don’t often see this kind of teen male-to-male idol expression. Good for him and thanks for the follow-up :)

    This genuinely warms my heart. It’s good to see a cute young man openly creaming his jeans over another boy. Back in my day, the only idol young faglings squee’d for was some shrill, scabrous old hag with a one-word name who wore hennin (look it up) for brassieres..
