Finally, some positive news from the Justin Bieber camp!

The pop star, who has been having a hard time with his public image as of late, broke the record Saturday for most wishes granted by a recording artist through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Biebs, who is just 19 years old, has already granted 200 wishes in his short career!

His 200th Make-A-Wish recipient was 8-year-old Atlanta native Annalysha Brown-Rafanan, who is suffering from a life-threatening liver condition.

The adorable little girl asked Bieber what his favorite of his own songs was ("I like 'That Should Be Me' and I like 'Catching Feelings,'" he said) and what was his favorite place to travel (Japan) before proposing to the pop star with a Ring Pop. "I'm supposed to ask you," he sweetly responded before dropping to one knee and placing the ring on her finger.

"This is what it is about. Thanks," Bieber tweeted to the Make-A-Wish Foundation's account, adding, "Honored yesterday. one of the best moments ive ever had. thank u. looking forward to doing more together. thanks."

The positive press comes at a much-needed time for the singer who has been going through a rough patch as of late. Videos leaked of the teenager peeing in a cleaning bucket in the kitchen of a restaurant in New York City and getting into a parking lot brawl outside of a Hamptons nightclub, while photos have surfaced of him appearing to spit from a balcony with fans standing below. And on Monday, photos of Bieber in the nude, carrying a guitar — apparently imitating Times Square's infamous Naked Cowboy for his grandmother last Christmas — were leaked.

His manager, Scooter Braun, seemed excited to comment on the upbeat news, tweeting a picture of the singer and Brown-Rafana along with the caption, "Just watched @justinbieber grant his 200th make a wish!! Most ever by any musician! Very #Proud."

What do you think? Could this be the turning of the tide for the Biebs? Tell us in the comments below!
