OK, we're starting to think that all the teeny-boppers who were swooning over Justin Bieber were well ahead of their time, because Bieber fever is beginning to run rampant across age barriers.
The 18-year-old is the cover man for the September issue of Vibe Magazine, and featured in a pretty dope black and white spread. From now on, when we hear Justin whisper "swaggy" on a track, we will visualize this Vibe magazine shoot.
In the corresponding interview, Justin talked about his fame, his crazy fans and why he's so private.
Justin on the perils of fame:
“In general, fame can tear you apart, so you can never really feel like you’re famous. When people start acting like they’re famous, that’s when they start losing it.”
On why he keeps his personal life personal:
“I don’t like giving too much personal information about where I live and the cars I drive… There are a lot of people in this world that aren’t good people, and all they need to do is a little research and then they can… People hiding in garbage cans overnight to catch [pictures] of me. Crazy things happen. You can’t give out too much personal information.”
Justin admitting that his fans are indeed crazy:
"My fans are crazier than anyone else’s fans. I’ve had girls make light-up signs with actual mechanics involved. Like it takes them three months to make that sign. Three months! That’s a long time.”
