Stop Calling Justin Bieber a Teen Heartthrob, You Guys
Justin Bieber chatted with NBC News special correspondent Ryan Seacrest (like the media mogul needed to add another line to his resume) about the trials and tribulations of being a hot young pop star and how he hates being called a “heartthrob” by everyone, even though it’s made him very, very rich.
“I feel like I just don’t want to be another teen heartthrob, ’cause that’s just — I just think that that just annoys me,” he said to Seacrest. “To think that that’s what people will think of me — I just want to prove people wrong.”
Way to put the “just” in “Justin,” kid.
Biebs went on to mention how his album ‘Believe’ is far removed from heartthrob territory because, like, it’s serious and more mature and stuff, saying, “[It’s] really showcased what I’m capable of — especially becoming an 18-year-old and becoming an adult. And hearing older people say, ‘Wow, this new album’s great, I didn’t know that was Justin Bieber.’ Or, you know, ‘Wow, like I never used to listen to Justin Bieber’s music, and now I like his music.'”
There was more but we kind of stopped listening after he claimed to be an adult. Regardless, looks like his legions of underaged Beliebers may have to find someone new to dream about since they’re obviously not his target audience anymore.
Easy there, Justin. Those little girls may seem harmless, but don’t bite the bubblegum-scented hands that feed you. They’ll kick your ass right back to Canada.
