Justin Bieber did a new photo shoot and interview with V Magazine and let me tell you, fans (I mean, REAL Beliebers) are in a tizzy…and not in a good way. The interview was decent but the photos? Fans have been trashing Justin on Twitter calling the pictures “gay” and “odd”. Here is what a couple of his Beliebers said,
“He honestly looks more female…” and “Honestly those pictures do look rather…. Odd? I mean I’m not gonna say they look bad, Justin still looks very cute in general, but ya… They could have, should have done better. I’m still a strong Belieber but… Sorry Justin”
I’m not sure exactly the purpose of wearing different headdresses and headgear was, but keep in mind, this is the eclectic and often eccentric V magazine, people.
As for the interview? We’ve got the highlights below:
ON HIS NEXT GOAL:
“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. 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, and it’s not worth it if I’m not the best.”
ON BEING THE BEST:
“I mean, I consider Michael Jackson the best. If I could be at his level… But I’ve got a lot of work to do. I’m not saying it’s going to happen within the next three years. But hopefully by the time I’m 30, people will remember me. I think people will remember me at this point, but I don’t want people to just think of me as a teen sensation. Because I could probably just sell out, and then in two years not put out another album, and just become Justin Bieber the teen superstar. But I don’t want to be that. I want to transition, and become the greatest.”
ON MAKING THE TRANSITION FROM TEEN TO ADULT:
“Here’s the thing: I think that I don’t need to try to do anything. 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. I’m going to grow up how I grow up. 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. I want to do it at my own pace. But I’m never going to make myself so the kids and the parents don’t respect me. There’re some artists that [parents won’t] let their kids go and see because they think they’re a bad influence. I want to be able to do what Michael did—he always sang clean lyrics—and it was always that little kids loved Michael and grandparents loved Michael. 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. Because right now, the young people are who make society. Young people determine what’s cool. Young people determine what’s going to be in style. So I always stick with the young people, that’s what I say.”
ON THE POSSIBILITY OF DOING A RAP ALBUM:
“I don’t think people take me seriously doing it. I’ll just put it out so people will be like “that’s pretty tight.” Like, just something I can do, but I don’t want to make a rap album. But I also want people to know that I write my stuff. No one writes my stuff for me. I write everything on my iPhone. And when people say, “Oh, Justin Bieber, he can spit but he didn’t write his stuff,” they’re wrong. I do.”
