Justin Bieber feels in control of his actions and knows who he is but admits he finds it hard to trust people and only has four friends
Justin Bieber insists he is in full control of his actions.
But the ‘Beauty and a Beat’ singer – who is being investigated for battery following a heated verbal argument outside his home in Calabasas, California last week and has attracted a lot of controversy for bad behaviour in recent months – admits he finds it harder to trust people these days and only has four real friends.
The 19-year-old Canadian singer told the May issue of Teen Vogue magazine: “I get good vibes from people all the time, and I probably could get along with them and be their friend, but now I just don’t trust anybody. Literally, my phone never rings. I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with.
“I don’t need a bunch of friends to make me happy. I just need the people close to me that I love, that’s all.”
Justin has attracted a lot of criticism recently for a string of incidents including smuggling a monkey into Germany, showing up to his concert two hours late in London and most recently for getting barred from an Austrian nightclub after his security team allegedly broke a fan’s camera.
But the popstar refuses to let speculation about his behaviour affect him and compared himself to Jay-Z.
He said: “I know who I am and I’m very much in control. I don’t need to address every speculation. Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond? Because he’s Jay-Z.”
Justin also believes he still has the support of his fans.
He said: “My Twitter is really nice. I have so many fans that I rarely ever see a nasty tweet. …I see so much stuff on the Internet, sometimes I just want to go to Twitter and just go after people. But then I think twice: If someone if dissing me, I’m going to make this person way more famous by tweeting them.”
