Justin Bieber: I'm not normal

Justin Bieber will be the first one to tell you he's not like other 16-year-olds.

“I’m crazy, I’m nuts,” the singing sensation tells February's Vanity Fair. “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.”

Read more from Justin Bieber's Vanity Fair interview

That includes greats like the Beatles and Michael Jackson.

“Michael [Jackson] was able to reach audiences from young to old; he never limited himself,” Bieber says. “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.”

And while most of the world's female population are certainly on the Canada native's side, Bieber believes that the ladies would be smitten with him whether he was famous or not. “Not trying to be arrogant," says Bieber, who has recently been romantically linked to 18-year-old Disney star Selena Gomez, "but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?”

Of course, the singer realizes that he also has his share of haters. "For younger guys, it’s like [they think] they’re not cool if they come to my concert," he says. "That’ll [change], I think; it’ll happen, maybe when I’m 18. But meanwhile all their girlfriends are coming to watch me.”

    He fills the need for the young male teen icon for all the young teenagers to swoon over (Backstreet Boys anyone?). There have been a bunch before him and there will be someone after him. Just give it a year or two.

    Although I do have to admit the first time I heard that "Baby" song or whatever, I asked my friend who the girl was that was singing lol.

    I find it fascinating that you all feel the need to respond so vehemently to this article – that a sixteen year old boy causes such rancor in a bunch of adults. That's much more interesting than anything this kid says or thinks.

      What's interesting to me is two things:

      1) You assume everyone commenting is an adult.
      2) You don't know what an opinion is. Everyone has one and is free to share at will.

    All teenagers think they're different and special. I wish someone would tell him he's not the special snowflake he thinks he is, so he could stop embarrassing himself in interviews like this.

    Also, he is not famous because he's good-looking - little girls think he's good-looking BECAUSE he's famous. If he were just some guy on the street, no one would look twice.

    16, hasn't gone through puberty; certainly not normal. I've often wondered if hey didn't lie about his age & he's only a large 12 year old. He should see an endocrinologist- he's about 3 years behind in development. By the time he catches up (hopefully soon), he may be out of a career (in this build-em-up & cash-em-out music biz).

    I actually feel sorry for him because, like every other child star, he is screwed. He won't be famous in 10 years, he doesn't have the talent to become a multi-generational icon (and that's not an insult, just an observation) like Madonna et al.

    That's ok, we'll need someone to star in the "whatever happened to" shows in 5 – 10 years. Along with the likes of Leif Garret and Shaun Cassidy, Bieber will have an equally short shelf life. And for those who are asking who are they, it just proved my point. True musicians last for decades, Bieber is not one of them.

I don't like his look. And he is NO MJ! Michael busted his chops from the time he was a little boy, or does no one remember the Jackson 5? And The Beatles are just not comparable. Hey Jude, Strawberry Fields Forever. They had it. This kid really doesn't. Good musician, probably. Good entertainer, maybe. Good singer, not particularly.

      I did find the reference to MJ kind of strangely poetic. If he was still alive MJ would surely be thrilled with having Bieber as a fan. He'd probably have the kid on the first plane to whatever foreign nation he was hiding in at the time.

    The reason he became a success was because he was fortunate enough to be a spoiled child with overbearing parents who recorded everymove he made, then somehow turned it into a pity/inspiration story... he did not earn his recognition, it was given to him. if half the worlds talent had the time of day to show prove themselves, his name would fade into a void along with 95% of the rest of that group... what happened to the little girl who could sing opera flawlessly, (if you dont know who im talking about, that is exactly the problem) she has a gift any aspiring choirist can train their life for and still never achieve... justin beiber has talent and so do many others, he has looks and so do many others... really, hes just bragging about how his parents babied and spoiled him all his life up to this point, its kinda sad, and if any of the halfwit fans could see that they should all be offended by such arrogance... what i hate most is not that hes a fraud, its the fans who put him where he is & cant defend him

As much as im not going to the album , I know the music bizz and people just don't know the piont Im making. Yes if Elvis came on the scene now he would be thrown under the bus too. Elvis , never could play any instrument great......Beiber can play the piano atleast and Probally any thigh he wanted. Usher saw something in him and Usher is based on MJ. The only reason he wasn't know as a teen Idol ( which he was on Tiger Beat ) was because he was black then. So what will it take for anyone to respect a 16 yrd pop star. It won't happen because people hate success. If he sucks so bad why don't you do it? Why don't you have your kids do it? lol once again amazing.....LMAO.

    The Beatles WERE trashed in the early 60's. Elvis was trashed in the 50's. Frank Sinatra was trashed in the early 40's, Benny Goodman was trashed in the mid 30's. Ravel was trashed in the 10's and 20's. Even Bach was trashed in the 1800's. The point Jeff, is not whether you're trashed...it's whether your talent is enough to sustain your career, which is what I think most of the comments are about and, personally having a Phd in music, I see nothing coming out of this kid that would allude to any longevity of any kind.(although he did get the "proactive" gig ...no more zits for the Bieb)

    Point I'm making people is NOT comparing to the Beatles , but that if the Beatles came out right now in 2011 with how the media is you would be bashing them too. My father has a masters in music and said he thought the Beatles were all gay no talent punks in 1964 because nothing but teenage girls liked them just like Beiber. Are none of you intelligent enough to understand that? lol . Amazing . Now go listen to your Jack Johnson and stop secretly listening to Justin Beiber if all your going to do is bash him...Do you hang out with him? Are you in the studio with him? And as Lief Garrett , he had no musical talent at all and during that time all they wanted was a pretty face. Now , because of so much media and being able to see everything about a artist, you have to have some talent.

    Justin, don't start believing everything that all the people in your entourage tell you. Most of them are hangers-on who, if you got into trouble, would not lift a finger to be there for you. Don't have so much hubris (look it up) that you think you are not subject to the rules, social norms and laws as everyone else. You can have a great career if you keep fame in perspective.
    And for the rest of you guys, if you "hate" him so much, why did you even read the article? Oh, my God, I would hate to have to be responsible for everything I said or thought when I was 16.
    P.S. Justin, you compare yourself to the Beatles. I have seen the Beatles in person in Atlanta and you, young man, are no Beatle, nor will you ever be. Comparing yourself in any way to them is tantamount to musical heresy.

    Having seen his name and face all over the place – despite wishing to avoid them – I chose to read this ONE article and am not surprised to find that he comes across as empty-headed and vain. The differences between any one of us singing into a hairbrush during our prepubescent years and many celebrities today are that (1) our parent(s) chose not to live out their fame fantasies through us, (2) a publicist and (3) a lot of makeup. It is our own damn fault so many of us cherish celebrity for its own sake instead of life's real values.

    Oh Lord! to think that he's only 16 which means we have god only knows how many years of having to hear about this little nerd, unless, of course, he fades away after forcing himself on everyone. Good looking? Don't think so. He is so full of himself. Wants to be like Michael Jackson - that's kind of a dubious ambition but either way - don't thinks so. Not Normal?? BINGO!!!

      He is trying to be like his mentor, Usher... but then again I guess you're right. Most artists strive to be what MJ was. That will never happen again, however.

      actually: To continue your point, MJ was about half Beaver's age when he became famous! And he was never a teen idol. Teen idols have about three years, tops.

    He lost me with "...and I think the best musicians usually are." Did he really say that?! Wow. He is crazy.
    In that case, most of the best musicians that were "crazy" ended up dead well before their time. So you run with that one, Beebs.
    Oh, and Noel Gallagher called, he wants his bloody hairdo back.

    “Not trying to be arrogant," blah, blah.

    That's like saying "I'm not racist" as you light a cross on someone's front yard.

    • Bieber=Beaver

      And what about what the writer of the article said: "And while most of the world's female population are certainly on the Canada native's side..." More like most of the pre-teen girl population." And Beaver's comment: "If I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?” WRONG! There is nothing good-looking about this guy. Take away his haircut and you take away his fame!

      "That’ll [change], [guys not going to his concerts] I think; it’ll happen, maybe when I’m 18." Sorry Beave, when you're eighteen people will be saying 'Justin Who?'

      omg, best response i have seen all day, and the next is "the only reason someone would turn around walking down the street is to see if you are male or female, what happened to boys looking like boys?"

    • trix are for kids

      Who cares how much he makes? Money does not equate to talent. We've seen that in today's society so often. "Jealousy" is often the excuse fans offer because they have nothing better to say. Maybe we just don't like the kid for thinking he is bigger than what he really is. Just because he makes millions more than each one of us doesn't mean he is worth more to society than anyone else. Say in 5 years he vanishes... someone else will take his place just as fast and just as easily. It's a business, people. He will suffer the same fate as the others before him and probably just be remembered as a fad.

      melisa, the bridge is waiting for you, jump off.

      The only reason anyone might turn around while he was walking down the street would be to verify whether he was male or female. Seriously with that haircut its really hard to tell. What happened to boys wanting to look like boys?

      Read it in Vanity Fair, who also gave us the latest BS poll statistic that most Americans want to tax the rich more to balance the federal budget. Splendid. Just keep feeding us the BS VF.

      "The best musicians probably are?..." And this applies to him how? What a spaz. Justin, you are going to hit bottom so hard by age 25. By then you will be one of the hosts on Tru Tv's Worlds Dumbest wondering "What happened? I thought I was one of the greats..." In reality, not even close.
