Justin Bieber Is Double The “Crazy” On The Teen Vogue Music Issue: “I Don’t Trust Anybody”
Justin Bieber looks twice as nice on his dual covers for the May 2013 issue of Teen Vogue. The 20-year-old superstar covers the publication’s “Music Issue” and dispels rumors that he is cracking under the pressure of super-stardom in his cover story.
“I know who I am, and I’m very much in control,” he said possibly referring to recent issues that he may be headed for a breakdown. “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? He didn’t need to respond because he’s Jay-Z. There’s so much nonsense that gets out there that’s not true. I would rather spend time really interacting with my fans. You just have to keep your head high and be positive.”
One way the Biebs stays positive is simply by interacting with his fans. “My Twitter is really nice,” the singer admits. “I have so many fans that I rarely ever see a nasty tweet. I don’t read YouTube comments because those can get you sad. I see so much stuff on the Internet, sometimes I just want to go to Twitter and just go after people. But then I just think twice: If someone is dissing me, I’m going to make this person way more famous by tweeting them.”
Despite his 37 million Twitter followers and countless fans around the world, Bieber swears he can count all of his real friends on one hand. “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,” said the star. “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.”
The May 2013 Music Issue of Teen Vogue hits newsstands on April 16. Go behind-the-scenes of Bieber’s doubly hot cover shoot below.
