In support of his new single What Do You Mean and his performance of the song at the MTV VMAs, Justin Bieber stopped by Hits 1’s Morning Mash Up show to dish about his new music and his new lease on life.
Bieber describes What Do You Mean as, “an easy sing-a-long, but it’s also not safe … it’s an easy singa–long, but it’s also really melodic.”
Among the other topics discussed are his plans to learn to surf from fellow pop star Cody Simpson, his hair routine, his new car (a rare LaFerrari!!), his shoe collection, the actor he’d like to play him in a biopic (shout out to Logan Lerman!), being able to legally drink, his growing faith and relationship with God, his sweet tooth, and whether he’d let his future children be a part of the entertainment industry.
“I wouldn’t put them in the industry as a child,” he said. “You have to know yourself before you come in this industry. You have to completely know who you are.”
He went on to say that this round of press is the last time he hopes he’ll have to discuss his troublemaking days and that going forward, people will know he is sincere because of his actions — on and off the camera.
“[Having cameras follow me] shouldn’t be pressure. I love what I do. I just want to love every moment. I want to come into this radio station. I want to enjoy it,” he explained. “I want to be so comfortable again with people and with the media that these conversations are going to be over. I want to talk about it right now because I want to get my point across, but I also don’t want to keep explaining myself. … People can see authenticity.”
Although he couldn’t reveal the title of his upcoming album — which features production from Skrillex, Diplo and more – he did hype his album cover, saying that fans are going to love it.
