He’s been a household name for years, and Justin Bieber adds another magazine cover to his credit with the September 2012 issue of Vibe.
During his interview, the “Boyfriend” singer discusses his massive success, but makes sure to clarify that he’s worked hard to keep it all in perspective.
“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.”
And while he’s plenty friendly, Justin prefers to focus on his career and keep his private life wrapped up tight under lock and key.
“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.”
As for his throngs of Beliebers, Justin noted, “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.”
