That cute little guy we know as Justin Bieber isn't so little anymore. In case you haven't noticed, the Biebs, who turned 18 last month, is quickly becoming more mature, and seems to be making more sense almost every time he opens his mouth. The "Baby" singer shared some of his pearls of wisdom in a new interview with Seventeen magazine.
First, Bieber spoke openly about his career, which only seems stronger after his successful holiday album, Under the Mistletoe, and his latest hit single, "Boyfriend." Although a lot of people have questioned whether the pint-sized pop star will be able to hold on to his fans as he ages, Justin doesn't sound worried about it at all. "A lot of times, when artists grow older, they lose their younger fans because they're just trying to get older fans," he reveals to the mag. "But if you try to make good music, then you'll just appease everybody. I just want to make music that's good for everybody."
The teen also doesn't mind if he does some good for others along the way. He's already launched the Believe Charity Drive to help kids with cancer and music education, and he's a major supporter of Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organization that supports local schools. Now he's doing his part to end world hunger. "Recently, there were so many things in my [concert] rider that went to waste, so I took a lot of things off my rider," Justin admits. "Every day we were buying all this stuff and it was just sitting there. I got rid of it. I didn't want to waste all the food."
Someone who's probably pretty pleased with the way Justin is turning out is his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, 19. The two appear to be going strong after more than a year together, but it doesn't sound like the pop star's anywhere near taking his gal for granted. "I'm just trying to make her happy, that's all," he says. "I think it's important to make all women feel like they're princesses, because every girl is a princess. I'm serious." Aw, sweet! We'll see if he still agrees with that statement after a few bad breakups...
No matter what happens, though, the Biebs says he's prepared, thanks to the talented man who discovered him, Usher. "From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you'll always succeed, because your family will never leave you," Justin explains. "He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from."
Sounds like good advice to me!
