Though singer Justin Bieber is not a good fighter, but he’s a hard worker and has spent the past few months in the studio, recording his new album “Believe.” His fans are awaiting his new work and he told the magazine that he’ll be doing a bit of rapping on some of the tracks.

The teenage star also speaks about his relationship with pop star Selena Gomez, a romance which has been under a microscope ever since the two were first rumored to be dating. “There is no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us,” he says.

“It’s like, ‘You take this car and I’ll take this car, and then we’ll meet up at the spot … I’ll go through the back area. Then we’ll meet in the dressing room and see each other.’ At that point, it’s not even a relationship. You’re just hiding from everyone. That’s unfair and unhealthy, man.”

Bieber was grown up in the spotlight, bursting on to the scene as a fresh faced popstar, and for the most part that’s the reputation he has today, writes The Daily Telegraph.

The 18-year-old could veer off track, but it’s the company Bieber keeps that seems to keep him on the straight and narrow. Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, recalled a conversation he had with Bieber about drugs: “He called me and said ‘Do you know why I’m never going to do that stuff? Because I know you’d walk in and beat the shit out of me.'”

And even with the $100,000 cars, the houses, the money and insanely dedicated fans, Braun told Complex, “[Bieber] doesn’t like being famous. He struggles with not being normal. I’m constantly telling him, ‘You’re not normal, and since you’re having an extraordinary life, I’m holding to you extraordinary standards.'”

While being interviewed, Bieber was weaings the same jacket as Swizz Beatz, and talked about his responsibility as a role model and reveals his competitive nature.

“There’s no point in doing this if I’m not going to be the best,” the pop-star said. “I give up a personal life. I give up my friends and family to pursue what I love and to make my fans happy. Why would I give up so much to be just another singer?”

Justin also revealed his attitude to people who dislike his music. “I feel like it’s my responsibility to be the greatest I can be. If I start making terrible music, I don’t expect people to like me. If I’m making great music and there’s no reason for people to dislike me, that’s when it’s going to make me upset.”

He continued: “People just need to take a chance and listen. If they don’t want to take a chance, then I don’t know. That’s going to be the biggest problem, to make them feel like it’s cool for them to like my music.”

The singer also mentioned his tattoo’s: “I want to get more tattoo’s when I’m older. My first tattoo was inspired by Richard Bach’s book ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’. My whole family got inked with the same design when I was 16.”

“They all got it on their wrist, but I wanted it in a different spot. The book is about a seagull who wanted to be more than just a seagull. I’m trying to be more than just a regular person. I’m trying to be extravagant,” he added.
