Justin Bieber: Vanity Fair Fella

Justin Bieber: Vanity Fair Fella

Justin Bieber shows off the effects he has on women on the February 2011 cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

The 16-year-old musician opened up about his passion for music, being more than just normal and just waiting for the day when guys voluntarily come to his concerts. Check it:

On not getting to be just a normal kid: “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 being the object of every teen girl’s obsession: “For younger guys, it’s like [they think] they’re not cool if they come to my concert. That’ll [change], I think; it’ll happen, maybe when I’m 18. But meanwhile all their girlfriends are coming to watch me.”

On some of his biggest influences: “Music is music, and I’m definitely influenced by Michael Jackson and Boyz II Men and people who were black artists—that’s what I like. But I like their voices and I like how they entertain—it’s not about what color they are. 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.”

Justin‘s cover of VF hits stands this Thursday, January 6 in New York and LA; January 11 for the rest of the United States.

    i listern to black artist, but it doesnt matter about the colour of their skin. why bring race into it all then?

    and I know im goint get alot of bieber fans commenting me back ‘your just jealous’ ‘shut up bitch’ some of their fave phrases.

    …but… he has acutally not that good looking, he was cute when he first come out but pubity hasnt agreed with him. and guys (and girls above 16) dont go to his concerts because they dont like him not because they think its uncool.

    The shelf-life of pop icons? Depends on how they re-invent themselves. For instance, Joe Jonas said he is working to make a next album more “edgy”. Justin Bieber appeals to ‘tweens still, and it’s wonderful that those demographics are being served. If Justin Bieber goes too “edgy”, in order to target his appeal more to older age demographics, he risks losing some of the younger demographics. And of he isn’t coming from his heart, from where he authentically is in his life right now, rather than having universal appeal, he’ll probably lose most demographics, as he won’t seem real.

    Do you honestly think that Justin Bieber is somehow not painfully aware of all of this?

    bieber is washed up, go away and come back in 7 years when you grow a penis.

  • good-one

    @dcstarinthemaking: JB’s probability of continued success, is precisely because he isn’t wishing failure upon others, but rather, in songs such as Pray, he helps elevate us to greater humanity.

    I hope he is happy with Selean

  • Tiffany

    Opps I mean Selena, get all of her clothes here http://outfitidentifier.com/

    He looks sad probably because these girls are hella younger than him and because photoshoots are long days! So not much fun to be had there in my opinion. Justin Bieber’s the man, simple.
    But puberty has definitely removed that cute boyish look and he is building muscle. kuudos to him!

  • YeahWell

    I don’t like Justin.
    And this cover is gross.

  • katie

    i can’t stand this kid. hes an arrogant, stuck up idiot. killing real music!
    i dont see you some girls see in him. if i saw him in the street, i wouldnt look twice, or once for that matter.
