Justin Bieber Talks Sex, Drugs & Growing Up
The Baby star says he's not a kid anymore, but is still learning...
Justin Bieber has insisted that unlike many child stars before him, he doesn't plan on ditching his squeaky clean image anytime soon.
The Biebster, who turns 18 on 1st March this year, has toldMichael Jackson, telling the publication: "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 better than anybody who's ever done it. And in order to do that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can. Because for me, I work so hard and this consumes my life — it's not worth it if I'm not the best."
He continued: "When I was coming up, trying to get to where I am now, people were so happy for me. They were rooting for me. Now that I'm on top, everyone wants to bring me down. Everyone's trying to tug at me and take my spot,
"A lot of people say they hate Justin Bieber who haven't even listened to my music. They just hate the idea of me."
Justin, who is currently dating Selena Gomez, also addressed his Christian values in the article, saying: "A lot of people who are religious, I think they get lost. They go to church just to go to church. I’m not trying to disrespect them, but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to Him. I don’t have to go to church.”
