Vintage Justin Bieber Pounds the Skins (VIDEO)

Justin Bieber might not always have been as adorable as he is now, but he’s apparently been talented for a long, long time.

Check out this newly unearthed video of the My World sensation, at the age of nine and pounding the bejesus out of his drum kit. Not too shabby, for a kid who was probably needed a booster seat on his drum stool just to reach the hi-hat.

Speaking of getting a boost, make sure to crack open The Holy Bieble for all things Bieber-related. It’s absolutely inspirational.
