Following the conclusion of his immensely popular documentary series on Jake Paul, Shane Dawson has set his sights on Justin Bieber for his next project.
So far, Dawson’s ‘docu-series’ have focused solely on the weird and wonderful lives of some of YouTube’s biggest stars, Jake Paul, Tana Mongeau and Jeffree Star, but is now setting his ambit wider.
His documentary on Jake Paul was split into eight parts, all around 40 minutes in length, with the final episode running 1 hour and 45 minutes, so it was a truly massive undertaking.
But it reaped the rewards, as the series has a total view count for all episodes of over 140 million, beating out even some top Netflix and ABC shows.
With such reach, it is really no surprise that he is going after stars who can match that level of influence, stars like Justin Bieber.
Although he doesn’t explicitly state he wants to do a full documentary or series on Justin Bieber, he sent the following Tweet asking if he would take the time to discuss “a project i’d love to do with u that my heart is super invested in.”

As of yet, Bieber has not responded to Dawson’s request, at least not publicly, but the potential for a documentary focused on the pop star certainly isn’t out of reach.
Bieber’s own career started on YouTube, it was how he was discovered by various record label A&R’s and mainstream artists, and his music videos were some of the first to go truly ‘viral’ on YouTube, boosting his career once more.
If Bieber still sees that connection to the website which originally gave him the platform to be discovered, perhaps he will be more open to this ‘project’ with Shane Dawson that some may think.
