Justin time for the re-release of his album Believe Acoustic, featuring eight reworked tracks from his platinum 2012 release, Justin Bieber landed the cover of Billboard Magazine, anticipating his debut at the top of the charts.
Justin landed in some pseudo hot water in the recent weeks following his breakup with Selena Gomez, and an incident in which he is being sued for accidently shooting a security guard with a Nerf gun.
Drama aside, Justin has been sure to focus on the positivity surrounding him as an 18-year-old success.
In the corresponding interview, Justin talks about everything from being snubbed at the Grammys, to rooting for Chris Brown to win on the big night.
Check out some excerpts from the interview below.
Your manager Scooter Braun took to Twitter when the nominations were announced and you didn't get [A Grammy Nomination.] How did you feel about it?
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.
Will you go to the Grammys this year?
I will not be there.
Is there anyone that you're pulling for that night?
Chris Brown. I'm a fan. His music is really good. That's what they should focus on: the music.
There's been all this back-and-forth with both you and Selena Gomez separately covering "Cry Me a River." The blogs have a field day speculating about what happened to your relationship.
There's so many rumors. People say I call Selena every day and she won't pick up the phone or I'm chasing her down, and these are all fake stories.
Do you ever think of a day when perhaps you won't be "hot right now"?
Yeah, of course. I don't think that I'm going to be boiling hot for the rest of my career. I think that, if I'm not on top. it would be because I didn't want to be. It would be a time when I wanted to take a break and do movies or take a break and raise a family. When I'm doing music and I'm really focused, I'm not going to not be where I am.
