In an illuminating new interview, Justin Bieber says he’s looking for respect, not sex and drugs.

Bieber recently did an interview with V Magazine titled ‘Watch The Throne’.

The global sensation, who turns 18 in a couple of months, says that he wants to be ‘The Greatest’.

“I don’t want people to just think of me as a teen sensation,” he says, “Because I could probably just sell out, and then in two years not put out another album, and just become Justin Bieber the teen superstar. But I don’t want to be that. I want to transition, and become the greatest. “

He wants to maintain his image and to resist going out drinking and swearing, saying “I want to be able to do what Michael [Jackson] did—he always sang clean lyrics—and it was always that little kids loved Michael and grandparents loved Michael”.

“I don’t want to start singing about things like sex, drugs and swearing. I’m into love, and maybe I’ll get more into making love when I’m older. But I want to be someone who is respected by everybody.”

He also weighed in on Kanye West: “Kanye is on a different level. I mean, Kanye is probably my favorite producer. He’s a musical genius.”

Bieber also spoke about being “spiritual” rather than “religious”, boxing, his work ethic, and wanting to prove to people his success is not just a “fluke”.
