Justin Bieber to Vanity Fair: I'm Nuts!

by at . Comments

The Justin Bieber fans that are threatening the life of Selena Gomez? Truly insane.

But the singer admits in the latest issue of Vanity Fair that he isn't exactly stable, either. Of course, his self-proclaimed insanity is rooted in a much different cause.

“I’m crazy, I’m nuts," Justin says. "Just the way my brain works. I’m not normal... my mind is always racing. I’m just... nuts. But I think the best [musicians] probably are."

Elsewhere in the interview, Bieber actually compares himself to Michael Jackson, saying the King of Pop set a standard by which he judges himself. Read excerpts below and check out a bevy of photos from Justin's spread.

On being like MJ: Michael was able to reach audiences from young to old; he never limited himself. He was so broad, everybody loved him, and that’s what my goal is - to basically make people happy, to inspire them, and to have everyone root for me.

On drawbacks of fame: It’s hard to really balance myself. A regular kid, if he catches the flu, he just gets to go home. But I can’t do that.

On his public persona: My sanity is important. Even if I’m angry, I’ll just put a smile on my face and fake it. I don’t often fake it... what’s me is me. I know I have to give up a lot of myself, or a lot of a private life.

On future scandals: I think that people are just waiting for that time when I make a mistake and they’re gonna jump on it... I know I’m not going to make a life-changing bad decision, as some people have. I’ve seen it happen too many times. I could be my own worst enemy, but I don’t want to mess this up.
