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.

Bubbling Up

amen kelsi


Lol. Im sorry I just dont get the 0bsession with this kid.


I'm not one of Bieber's rabid fans so I'm not defending him because I like his music or think he's so dreamy or anything like that. But I think you are misunderstanding the quote about MJ, which is partially the authors fault by saying he's comparing himself to him. But if you read the quote he's not saying he want to be MJ or is like MJ. What he's saying is he admires MJ & his ability to reach people of different ages with his music. He's not saying that he's gonna copy him or that he thinks that he's on the same level. Just that he hopes he can reach people with his music in that way and admires him. Which I think most serious singers strive for that. So if you are bagging on him for saying he admires the King of Pop you need to direct that anger at a whole legion of fans and other artists and not direct your hate at just one artist because you don't like his music or that he's achieved a lot of popularity recently.


Comparing himself to MJ is a joke. This little boy needs to realize the world is not going to revolve around him By the way, what ever happened to real musicians that did not copy previous hit acts. They need to come up with something original.
