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.
