Justin Bieber turns 21 today -- happy birthday, bud! Your 21st is a milestone birthday, but it's a milestone we at MTV think Bieber's actually already crossed. He's been manly ever since he chopped off those floppy locks, and, hello, that was four years ago -- that's enough time for a baby to be born, grow up and start school.
Here are seven ways Justin Bieber's already crossed into manhood:
He had a mustache.
Listen, not every dude can grow one. Justin may be one of those dudes, but at least he tried.
He's obsessed with tricked-out cars.@justinbieber/ Instagram
Justin is buds with the guys from West Coast Customs (they not only make him cars, but they had him on their show). Also, cars = testosterone.

Biebs gets his own roast on Comedy Central on March 30 at 10 p.m. It takes a true man to let comics like Seth Rogen take their best shot at him.
