On hating some of his own music;
“It’s hard to make meaningful songs that make you want to dance because it can come off cheesy. In the past I’ve recorded songs that I didn’t like, that I wouldn’t listen to, that the label was telling me to record. I’m self-expressing with this album.”
On his nude-photos scandal and his dad’s comments;
“I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads.”
On growing up in the spotlight;
“I wouldn’t suggest being a child star. It’s the toughest thing in the world. Like Kylie [Jenner]. Look at her world: She has been living on TV since she was a kid. Every time she’s looking around she sees a camera, and that’s affecting how she’s thinking and how she’s perceiving people and why she has to do certain things . . . Situations that happen taint your mind, especially in this industry.”
On how he will always love Selena Gomez;
“I’m proud of the woman she is today. When you love someone that much, even if something comes between you, it’s a love that never really dies.”
On how he’s trying to change;
“Enough with the Justin Bieber Show. I want to veer away from the self-centered attitude. I’m just focused on the people who have been there since the start, on people who are taking the journey now. I want them to feel like we’re doing this together.”
