Young recruit: Justin Bieber learns a few classic basketball tricks backstage from the famous Harlem Globetrotters on the set of Lopez Tonight on Tuesday
His fame has brought Justin Bieber many advantages - not least a huge fortune and hundreds of thousands of adoring fans.
But the 16-year-old got what must be his best perk of the job yet yesterday as he met the Harlem Globetrotters.
The world-famous basketball team taught the pop star a few tricks as they met backstage at the George Lopez chatshow.
But while Justin seemed to get the hang of spinning a ball on his fingertip, he has a long way to go before he can even think of joining them on the court.
For while the average basketball star is 6ft6, with many tipping 7ft, Justin is a pint-sized 5ft5.
Of course the youngster is still growing, but looks unlikely to reach the heights of professional basketball anytime soon.
City Of Love: Justin received a huge welcome as he arrived for his premiere in Paris tonight
But that shouldn't concern Bieber.
The teen star was tonight in Paris, where he was greeted by crowds of screaming teens delighted to see him.
He tweeted: 'PARIS Premiere of was INSANE!!'
The previous night he was in London where he received an equally huge reception.
The singer arrived in the UK on Monday to attend the BRIT Awards on Tuesday where he was awarded Best International Breakthrough Artist.
Worldwide fame: Justin has sold more than 9million albums
He also received a kiss from fellow pop star Cheryl Cole, whose fame he has more than eclipsed.
Bieber is one of the most Googled people on the planet with more than one billion You Tube views, 6.3 million Twitter followers and 16.5 million friends on Facebook.
He has sold 9 million albums worldwide and performed for President Obama twice en route to starring in his new movie.
