Justin Bieber Rules Out Rap Career 

The Boyfriend star says he only likes spitting lyrics for fun...

Justin Bieber may have tried his hand at rapping in the past, but the teen superstar has insisted he's not about to take over from the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye West and Eminem.

The Boyfriend singer, who displayed his spitting abilities on Chris Brown's New Boy In Detention mixtape last year, has claimed he isn't about to launch a rap career anytime soon as he doesn't want to alienate his fans.

Justin explained to Showbiz Spy: "A lot of countries don’t get rap music. It is a lot bigger in the US and Canada but not everywhere."

While Biebs isn't about to become a fully-fledged rap star, he went on to add that while he will never use his skills on a record, he still enjoys rapping the odd lyric, stating: "I am a singer — that is my passion, Rapping is something that I like to do for fun.”

Earlier this week, the 18-year old revealed that his new album Believe will be released in the US on 19th June.
