I think Justin Bieber and Tavi Gevinson deserve their success because they're talented and they tried their best to be more talented. They worked hard so they deserve their success.

I think Justin Bieber and Tavi Gevinson have lucky, because they made few an effort before becoming famous, Justin with his video on youtube and tavi with her rookie blog, they're just lucky.

Hi llangaroro!
Thanks for letting us know. I've just tested the audio and it's working fine for me. Perhaps you could refresh the page or try a different browser? Don't forget there is also a transcript to read if you are still having problems with hearing it. Do let us know if you are still having problems ...
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Teen Team)

I think Tavi Gevinson copletely deserves his succees.She had really bright ideas even tough she did not have enough experience.We can explain it with her abilities.But on the other hand Justin Bieber's success in not only come from his abilities.We can even say if he was less good-looking,he would be not as fomous as he is now.

According with this question I think that they deserve their succes, but also they've had good luck because they have born in a time where you can show your talent through apps as youtube, twitter, blogs and so on, so is easier for them to achieve the succes, in this sense I consider that they have had good luck, however it is obvious that they have a natural talent and as a result they deserve their succes

Of course, YouTube and blogging were just appearing at that time, but it didn't occur to everyone that they could post videos on YouTube or start a blog. They did something that no one had tried before, so I think that they deserve their success.

Well, i think that Tavi got famous because well, People first thought that she had an interesting style of taste. Then they wondered how she got slightly popular at such a young age, and that made her grow more and more. And Justin Bieber probably also started growing because of his age, and after that when he finally got popular girls (that is mostly his fan base) just because he is famous and young.

A great discussion to bring up.
