Bite-sized Canadian pop star Justin Bieber is front and center for Vanity Fair’s February 2011 issue. The Biebs is covered in smooches as he adjusts his tie for the magazine.
The 16 year-old singer gives the scoop on how his mind works, what it’s like to be a teenager in the spotlight and how he will not go down the way some of young Hollywood has:
On his mental state: “I’m crazy, I’m nuts… Just the way my brain works. I’m not normal. I think differently; my mind is always racing. I’m just … nuts. But I think the best [musicians] probably are.”
On his public image: “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…. Everything is important. But, you know, my sanity is important, too. 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 keeping his head on straight: “Of course, I think that people are just waiting for that time when I make a mistake and they’re gonna jump on it….There’s gonna be haters … I know I’m not going to make a lifechanging 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.”
