“I am going to change and grow through my music and doing films. This album was different. My next album will be even edgier. My music is never going to have swear words in it. Never.”
He also wants to be remembered for more than a teenage heartthrob that people think he is:
“I definitely don’t want to be just another teen heartthrob. But there are different ways of growing. I want to be loved like Michael Jackson was, from the four-year-olds to the 80-year-olds.”
As for his career path, he wants to follow artists like mentor, Usher, and Justin Timberlake:
“I look at Justin Timberlake and Usher and see how they crossed over really successfully, and I’ve seen people go off at the deep end, get full of themselves, think they’re the best and end up not being anything. I’ve worked way too hard for that.”
Besides talking about his songs, he also talked about his belief in Christianity, despite not attending church regularly:
“I believe that He put me in this position, and that I have to always give Him the glory He deserves for putting me here.”
He also wants people to know that he is a musician and not a manufactured product that was found.:
“People think I’m a product, that they found this good-looking kid, cut his hair nice and put Auto-Tune on his voice, wrote him good songs, taught him how to dance and then said, ‘Here is a pop star for you. I am the furthest thing from that. I’m a musician; I play instruments, I write songs. I’m a businessman; I want to create an empire. I want people to know I don’t just sing songs. I’m the guy who signed the girl who just had the biggest single all round the world.”
That girl being Carly Rae Jepson I presume since he did star the Call Me Maybe craze. Although he may sound a bit cocky, I do have to give it to him for all the achievements he has made since Baby.
