Pop superstar Justin Bieber turns 22 today (March 1) and this year, Justin will celebrate his birthday with a private, low-key party attended by his intimate circle of friends. Hours ago, Bieber shared a couple of pictures of him hanging out with his close pals, hinting that it won’t be a big club party for this birthday.

After having a great year with chart-topping singles and his platinum-selling album Purpose, Bieber seems to be content about how life has turned around, and even brought a little sunshine with it. After spending his last two birthdays under heavy media scrutiny for his outrageous lifestyle of partying, disturbing neighbors, a DUI, and hooking up with one model after another, it looks like Justin Bieber is finally settling into a laid-back life full of friends and family.

Over the past few weeks, Bieber has also posted photos on Instagram of some quality time spent with his little brother Jaxon. The pop singer even took him along to the Grammys last month! Speaking of the Grammys, the other great thing to celebrate is that Bieber finally earned his first Grammy for his collaboration on Skrillex and Diplo’s “Where are U Now” dance anthem.

On February 29 at around midnight, Bieber shared pictures of his close buddies hanging out at his Hollywood Hills home to celebrate his birthday at the stroke of midnight. Even though Bieber’s rumored flame, Hailey Baldwin, was not around, he’ll probably catch up with her sooner rather than later. While Hailey’s absence may hint at breakup rumors, Bieber looks quite upbeat and happy celebrating his 22nd birthday with close friends and family.
