GLOBAL SUPERSTAR, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
People assume celebrities are untouchable, but even teen superstar Justin Bieber has been the victim of bullying. He talks to Sweetenyourwords about kids in the playground and the best way to handle it.
Q: You also have your next studio album coming out in the not too distant future. Is there anything you can say about that?
The album is coming out probably February or March. It’s really exciting because I haven’t put out an album in a while, so people are going to be really excited about it hopefully.
Q: I read that it was influenced a little by Justin Timberlake’s sound, is that correct?
I think that was a rumour. But no, we are actually going with my own sound. I love Justin, so that’s not anything bad to him.
Q: You’ve achieved so much professionally at such a young age, what are your personal goals? What would you like to achieve?
My personal goals are hopefully that I’ll be able to win a Grammy someday. If not then whatever, but hopefully.
Q: I read in a newspaper you’re more influential than Obama or the Dali Llama. How do you feel when you read that kind of stuff?
I think it’s kind of amusing to think that but I don’t think that’s true. I think Obama and the Dali Llama, they are very powerful people and if I am able to influence people in a positive way sometimes then I’ll be lucky.
Q: What else would you like to do? Your movie did really well all over the world. Is acting something that you’d like to move into?
Yes, I mean I like acting a lot, but it’s something that I like being able to play, a character that’s not me, so that’s always fun.
Q: Who would you like to play you in a movie?
Nobody. I don’t want anybody to play me.
Q: So what kinds of things do you like doing in your spare time?
I like playing sports. I’m an athlete, so I’ve been playing sports ever since I was really young, so I love basketball, hockey, soccer…
Q: How do you deal with all the crazy fans?
Crazy fans? My fans are very inspiring, for them to be so persistent and so driven, is something that I wish I had.
Q: If your career hadn’t taken off, do you think you would have gone on to study or what do you think you would have done?
I don’t know. Like, I wasn’t good in school, well, I was okay in school, but I was not great, like A’s. I was like Bs and Cs, so I like wasn’t really focused. I’m glad that this worked out (laughs)
Q: Did you have a favorite subject?
I liked math, I liked English, but like recently math got so hard that I hated math.
Q: Is it true you released a line of nail polish? How did that idea come about?
(laughs) It’s for charity. It’s not really ‘my nail polish line,’ it’s like inspired by my music, so we have the purple one called, Never Say Never, that kind of thing. It’s for all the girl fans.
