Justin Bieber Takes on Disney, Implies Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers are "Corny," Manufactured

by at . Comments

With a number-one album on the charts, a successful SNL gig behind him, and a movie about his life possibly on the way, might Justin Bieber be developing a major ego?

We pose this question because the singing sensation spoke to MTV News this week and gave himself props for being embraced by the hip-hop community.

"I'm really glad they've taken a liking to me," Justin said. "Having Luda [on my song "Baby"] and having Lil Wayne give me shout me out on UStream... it's cool."

Bieber was discovered by Usher's manager and signed by Def Jam Records. He says he wants to emulate the careers of Usher and Justin Timberlake.

What about other young singers, such as Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers? Bieber started a possible war in the tween world by implying that those artists are nothing more than Disney-manufactured drones. Asked why he's so popular among various demographics, he replied:

"I think it's because I didn't go through the Disney route. I didn't go corny... I've been cool and collected."

Hear that, Miley, Nick, Kevin and Joe: you're corny. Would you care to respond?
