For those of you who can’t get enough Justin Bieber, read on for this new interview where he discusses the documentary movie about his life, Never Say Never, which will hit theaters on February 11, 2011. He also talks about his musical influences, his celebrity crush, and what he looks for in a girl.
Q: Describe how you feel about making a documentary of your life, Never Say Never.
Justin: I think it’s exciting. Any time you open up your whole life to cameras, it can be a little nerve-wracking, but my team has so much fun and this is such a great story, I’m excited to share it with everyone.
Q: What is the most important thing you reveal in Never Say Never?
Justin: The most important thing I reveal is that I’m a normal kid, living my dream, and I’ve been extremely fortunate and blessed. I am happy to show other kids that anything is possible and you should really never say “never”.
Q: What was the funniest part of making Never Say Never?
Justin: The antics of my road manager, Ryan Good and messing around with my friends for the cameras. You’ll see what I mean when you see the movie.
Q: Are you interested in taking time off to do a scripted movie? If so, what kind of movie?
Justin: I’m definitely interested in taking on larger roles as an actor. My main focus is definitely music, and I don’t want to take away from that but I’m open to taking on roles that will challenge me as an actor.
Q: Congratulations on the AMAs. You referred to Michael Jackson—how has he influenced your approach, your style, your love of music and the industry?
Justin: I think I, as well as anyone who has ever approached a career in the music industry, have been inspired by Michael Jackson. His style, his work ethic, his talent and his love of music are truly something to be admired, and his success creates a goal for all artists to reach for.
Q: Who else would you consider as a major influence and how?
Justin: Obviously Scooter and Usher, but anyone else? My mom. She got me my first drum kit; she filled our house with music; she’s sacrificed everything for me. She plays a major part in my life and my career.
Q: What would fans not know about your relationships with Scooter and Usher?
Justin: The fans probably don’t realize just how influential they are in my life and how much pride they take in guiding me into being the best person I can possibly be.
Q: What are the three best highlights from everything that’s happened since the debut of your first CD to now?
Justin: In order of how they happened: 1) Singing for the President, 2) Winning the VMA for Best New Artist. 3) Winning 4 AMAs.
Q: What was your most embarrassing moment?
Justin: When I got spaghetti on myself during a date.
Q: Is there any celebrity that you have a crush on?
Q: What do you look for in a girl?
Justin: Someone with a good smile and a great sense of humor.
Justin, that describes me perfectly! Friend me!
