Justin Bieber: 'I don't want to sing about sex, drugs and swearing'
Pint-sized popstar keen to hang onto squeaky-clean image
The squeaky-clean popstar said that although he was maturing, he didn't want his fans to see him drinking alcohol or start singing raunchy tunes.
"People need to know I'm not a kid anymore," Bieber told V Magazine. "I'm still learning. I'm not going to try to conform to what people want me to be or go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol."
He went on to add:
I want to do it at my own pace. I don't want to start singing about things like sex, drugs and swearing. I'm into love, and maybe I'll get more into making love when I'm older. But I want to be someone who is respected by everybody.
Bieber also said he wanted to be the best popstar of all time and named Michael Jackson as his idol, stating: "I want to be better than anybody who's ever done it. And in order to that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can."
Last year, Justin Bieber become embroiled in a paternity spat when 20-year-old Mariah Yeater claimed that the singer had fathered her baby. Bieber, however, dismissed her claims and said he was prepared to take a DNA test to prove that the child wasn't his.
