Nikki Reed, star of guilty pleasure TV The O.C. and who has an upcoming role in Twilight: Breaking Dawn, confessed that she finally figured out why everyone is so enthralled with Justin Bieber.
In an interview with MTV News, the brunette beauty was asked if she had any insight into the cause of the infamous “Bieber Fever” sweeping the country, given her own experience with the equally rabid fan base of Twilight (and also given that the Venn diagram of Bieber fans and Twilight fans greatly overlap).
She admitted that she “really didn’t understand that for a while,” but now she finally “gets it” after she came across some “vintage” videos of a 6-year-old Bieber playing the guitar:
“The excitement and passion in his eyes and his voice, this little tiny kid holding this big huge guitar… he’s singing, his voice penetrates into the world. People across the street were listening, it’s truly incredible. He’s a talented kid.”
She added, “I’m starting to get it with the Biebs.”
