Great news, Beliebers! Your boy Justin Bieber is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Seventeen magazine. Looking ever so much like the teen dream that he is, The Beibs smiles adorably on the cover of the mag and then mugs playfully in various poses in his accompanying photospread. For those of you who like to read rather than look at purdy pictures, JB also answers some questions in his interview. What more could you ask for?
On His Role Model “Usher is who I look to for guidance. From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you’ll always succeed, because your family will never leave you. He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from.”
On Growing Up With His Fans “A lot of times, when artists grow older, they lose their younger fans because they’re just trying to get older fans. But if you try to make good music, then you’ll just appease everybody. I just want to make music that’s good for everybody.”
On His Romantic Dates With Girlfriend Selena Gomez “I’m just trying to make her happy, that’s all. I think it’s important to make all women feel like they’re princesses, because every girl is a princess. I’m serious.”
On Not Wanting to be Wasteful “Recently, there were so many things in my rider that went to waste, so I took a lot of things off my rider. Every day we were buying all this stuff and it was just sitting there. I got rid of it, I didn’t want to waste all the food.”
On What Scares Him The Most “Losing a family member is my biggest fear. I’ve never lost anyone, so I don’t know what the feeling would be. It would just be scary.”
OK … these are slick answers. The princess line? Yeah, even I swooned at that one. Homie is smart smart smart. He knows how to make sure that the millions of tweens that love him keep loving him. Aspiring teen hearttrobs, this is how you play the game. Well played, JB. Well played.
