Now that Justin Bieber has found “Somebody to Love” and has been accused of fathering a “Baby,” does he consider himself a full-fledged adult since he’s about to turn eighteen? No; in fact, he actually thinks the exact opposite, which is shockingly refreshing to hear from someone who’s the target of way too many girls’ affections. Not only does he still consider himself young, but he also pledges to continue making the music that he feels is appropriate for someone his age to sing: beats with clean lyrics, performed without consuming alcohol or alluding to sex or drugs.
“Here’s the thing: I think that I don’t need to try to do anything,” Justin Bieber told V. “There are people who try to grow up too fast—they’re 18, so they’re like, I’m not a kid anymore. People need to know I’m not a kid anymore. But at the end of the day, I’m not completely grown-up. I’m still learning.”
Bieber continues that he’s just not ready to sing about certain things.
I don’t want to start singing about things like sex, drugs and swearing…I’m into love, and maybe I’ll get more into making love when I’m older. But I want to be someone who is respected by everybody.
He also doesn’t plan on changing his behavior anytime soon either. ”I’m not going to try to conform to what people want me to be or go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol.”
So what’s on the mind of this teenage pop star—besides Selena Gomez, that is?
“My goal at the end of the day—right now—I want to be successful and be great at what I do. But eventually, I want to become the best at what I do. I want to be the best. In the world. I want to be better than anybody that’s ever done it…Because for me, I work so hard and this consumes my life, and it’s not worth it if I’m not the best.”
