Teen sensation Justin Bieber is on the cover of the industry bible, Billboard Magazine. He may be all of 16 but the teenager numerous hits, including “One Time“, “One Less Lonely Girl“, “Baby” from his “My World” CD and sells a boatload of records. So yes, he deserves the BB cover – as well as Teen Vogue.
And a little known fact: Bieber sings the opening line in “We Are The World”, which was sung by Lionel Richie in the original version.
Here are some advance quotes from his interview:
Comments of him just being a “teen pop fad”:
“There’s more people that like me than there are who hate me, so I kind of brush it off,” he says. “People say, ‘Oh, people just like him because he’s pretty.’ Or the funniest one: ‘When he goes through puberty, he’s not going to be a good singer anymore. How does that make sense when we’ve seen people like Michael Jackson and Usher and Justin Timberlake and all these famous singers do it?”
Wanting to play Madison Square Garden:
“I just think that I have enough fans, so I could pull in the people. I don’t really get nervous anymore. I’ve already performed at Madison Square Garden, and I’ve performed for an hour before. What’s the difference?”
Wanting to go into acting:
“I don’t want to do the ‘Hannah Montana’ thing,” he says.
