It's cool when fans spend so much time making things for me. It means a lot.
On being heartbroken:
“I’m not in the happiest place that I’ve ever been. I’m trying to get through what I’m going through. Like I said, I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going”.
On the Grammys snub:
“I felt the same way that Scooter felt, I just can’t really... it’s good that he can put it out there and say that. He had my back just like any manager would. My whole life I’ve dreamed of winning a Grammy. At this point, the excitement of that has gone down. I’m more excited to just make great music for my fans. That’s just something that if it happens, it happens”.
Not trying to be arrogant, 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?
A lot of people who are religious, I think they get lost. They go to church just to go to church.
I grew up below the poverty line; I didn't have as much as other people did. I think it made me stronger as a person, it built my character. Now I have a 4.0 grade point average and I want to go to college, and just become a better person.
Cheryl Cole and Katy Perry are two of the hottest girls in the world - and so normal and funny with it. If I was a few years older they are the kind of girls I'd like to date. I want a younger version of Cheryl and Katy - a mixture of the two would be hot.
Young people in the business have grown up and made the wrong decisions, or bad decisions, and haven't been good role models. To be someone that people look up to is important to me.
I started singing about three years ago, I entered a local singing competition called Stratford Idol. The other people in the competition had been taking singing lessons and had vocal coaches. I wasn't taking it too seriously at the time, I would just sing around the house. I was only 12 and I got second place.
I'm looking forward to influencing others in a positive way. My message is you can do anything if you just put your mind to it.
The Beliebers have done some pretty crazy stuff. Last week, the night before I was due to do a show in Germany, four girls went into a dumpster so they could sneak into the building. They climbed in and hid. When the guys working on the truck started getting the garbage they found them straight away. It was crazy.
“I think older people can appreciate my music because I really show my heart when I sing, and it’s not corny. I think I can grow as an artist, and my fans will grow with me.”
“If I notice a cute girl at the meet-and-greet, I might go and talk to her.”
“My world got very big, very fast, and based on a lot of sad examples from the past, a lot of people expect me to get lost in it”
“I want my world to be fun. No parents, no rules, no nothing. Like, no one can stop me. No one can stop me.”
Two people can look at the same thing and see it differently..”
“It was like I opened my eyes one day and noticed that the world was full of beautiful girls. And I’ve had a hard time hard time thinking about anything else since then.”
There are lots of things I really like besides girls. Like pizza. And pranking. And CHUCK NORRIS.”
My first date has been sort of mythologized as ‘Bieber’s Dating Disaster.’ I took her to King’s a buffet restaurant. Yes, I wore a white shirt. Yes, I got spaghetti.”
I think she’s cute. And, no, she’s not too old for me. Above 40 is a little too old for me.” on Kim Kardashian
Singers aren’t supposed to have dairy before a show, but we all know I’m a rule breaker. Pizza is just so good!
It’s funny when I read things about myself that r just not true. Why would certain people take time out of their day to hate on a 16 yr old?”
It’s kind of hard to balance school and work sometimes. But sometimes, like, if I’m going to the White House and I’m in there doing a tour and stuff, that’s like school.”
I also try to read all of my fan mail. A lot of them send me candy, which I’m not allowed to eat ’cause my mom says it might be poisonous.”
