In Justin’s new interview with with Ryan Seacrest he says he wants to be the absolute best but he doesn’t want to be just another popstar. Read on to find how how Justin is dealing with his fame and how he’ll make it last!

Justin Bieber doesn’t want to be just a flash in the pan. The 18-year-old sat down with NBC News Special Correspondent Ryan Seacrest in an interview that is set to air Sept. 13 and he talks about his new book Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started. So what’s in this book? You’ll have to read on to find out!

Justin tells Ryan that: “I don’t want to be just another teen heartthrob, it just annoys me to think that’s what people will think of me and I want to prove people wrong. I think my new album Believe has showcased what I’m capable of, especially becoming an 18-year-old and an adult. Hearing older people say ‘wow this new album is great. I didn’t know that was Justin Bieber’ or ‘Wow I never used to listen to Justin Bieber’s music but now I listen, or ‘As Long As You Love Me, Justin Bieber sang that?’ I like those kinds of reactions. They’re judging me based on my music and not the flick of my hair.”

Justin’s mom, Pattie Mallette also joins in the interview and reveals secrets like: what she almost named him, and what it was like raising him.

I really think you’re wrong. People said he wouldn’t last and it’s been 5 or 6 years already (since he started working with Scooter) and since the original videos were put online.and he just keeps getting bigger. Every performance, Every song, he is amazing and wildly talented. he has the right “stuff” to go the distance, he has the talent, the drive, a good team around him, he’s not a trouble maker and he’s likeable. . He’s not goin anywhere any time soon, besides, he has millions of fans (like myself) that aren’t teens and are amazed by him. My kids love him too and they’re not teenagers yet. His fan base is extremely big and ranges in age dramatically. . So don’t put a much longer career past him. That’s why he’s here.

I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, Cas­h­L­a­­zy.­com

Awwe, well it should be based on that. The first time I actually watched a video, from when he was 12, singing in his bathroom and living room, I was so impressed. He really has the talent and potential to go the mile. He’s gonna last. I think the fact that his fans aren’t all teens helps. Pretty soon, he’ll have more fans that are adults than teens. He’s making the ‘transition’ into adulthood so smoothly and at the right pace. Many artists can’t do that and he is doing an incredible job. It’s good that he has good people around him who know what they’re doing..
And the fact that he’s such a good person helps as well. I’m 26 and am such a big fan, so are my kids. Adults like that he’s clean and his music has meaning, if that’s how he stays and doesn’t start changing his music into the garbage that many other artists tend to have these days, then he’ll do just fine. and I don’t see him ever becoming one of those artists. He’s smart, he knows what sells, but he also knows what doesn’t last. Creating an all nonsense album, with swearing, based on nothing important, that doesn’t last forever. Lyrics, heartfelt, timeless songs will and Justin is here to stay as far as I (and many people in the industry) am concerned.
I genuinely believe that he was put here to go the distance and he proves that over and over.
