Justin Bieber Interview

Posted by at 4:07 am in Celebrities, Music | Permalink

Justin Our Scholastic interviewer, Marie Morreale, told me she has a new interview with Justin Bieber, and I said, “Who’s that? I’ve heard of Cody Simpson and Greyson Chance, but I don’t know this Justin Bieber kid.” Just kidding! Here’s the interview.

Q: What book would you recommend to kids?
Justin:
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan.

Q: What book do you think everyone should read?
Justin:
The Bible. There are many lessons in The Bible that you can apply to your everyday life.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?
Justin:
English

Q: Is it true that you’re a self-taught musician? What instruments do you play?
Justin:
Yes, it is true that I’m a self taught musician. I started playing the drums at age two. I play the drums, piano, guitar, trumpet.

Q: When did you first get interested in music?
Justin:
I’ve been interested in music since I was really little. My mom would always have people over the house playing music and listening to music. I grew up listening to music.

Q: Do you get nervous when you perform?
Justin:
I don’t really get nervous anymore. Performing is one of my favorite things to do.

Q: Do you have a talent that most people don’t know about?
Justin:
I’m a great juggler.

Q: What quality do you value most in a friend?
Justin:
Loyalty and a sense of humor.

Q: What was it like growing up not very rich? What can other teens learn from you?
Justin:
Luxury isn’t necessary as long as you have plenty of love and family and friends.

Q: What’s your favorite holiday, and why?
Justin:
I love Christmas for the food and family time!

Q: Of all your accomplishments, which are you most proud of?
Justin:
Most recently winning the VMA (Video Music Award) for Best New Artist and just being a good son to my mom and dad.

Aww. Sweet!

    He is not only a good singer, but he can act. He has many talents, plays four instruments, and believes he got a miracle.

    I went to NYC and that place was beautiful! I stayed therefor a week and guess wat! On the last day when I was going to leave I saw a lot of people with sleeping bags and stuff. I was wondering wat they were doing when I saw a sign that sais “Tommorrow in the morning at 7:00 we are giving free tickets to 75 people to see Justin Beiber on the today show.” I like freaked out and started screaming I was so surprised! I was like mom can we stay for tomorrow to get to see JB? She was like no we cant. I was sad and was about to cry.

    Justin is a good singer. Whether he is saying these things for publicity I don’t know. People at my school make fun of him every chance they get. That is wrong in so many ways because they don’t know him

    Can you PLEASE forget Bieber? Or, at least instead of him, interview GREGG SULKIN. He’s a huge, rising star and is going to be in Season 4 of Wizards of Waverly Place as Mason Greyback, in the new DCOM Avalon High as Will Wagner, and he was in ATBRUK (as JJ). Really. Interview Sulkin. Honestly.

      Would you happen to have any fmaliy photo’s that were taken in Sterling that you would be willing to share? I live in Sterling and am interested in the history. Any photo’s that also include buildings are of interest.I remember your Aunt Francis and Uncle Dugan and Butch, they lived down the road from me when I was growing up.

    He seems nice. I don’t know why people make fun of him. He’s not my favorite singer, but he’s not my least-favorite either. The guys just don’t like him ’cause he’s getting all of the girls. It’s actually kinda’ funny in my POV. I overhear guys say “he’s so stupid” and girls argue about who’s going to be his future wife.
