Bieber raunches it up - nah, not really

Justin Bieber has confirmed that he will remain a clean-cut Canadian kid for a while yet. Those eagerly anticipating a career shift into death metal or gangsta rap will just have to be patient.

Bieber and his management team obviously realise that the one constituency that still spends money on music with some regularity is the pre-teen girl sector, and the 17 year-old Bieber can not be allowed to do anything that might upset his fans’ parents.

"People need to know I'm not a kid anymore," he said in an interview with V Magazine. "But I’m still learning. I'm not going to try to conform to what people want me to be or go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol."

If the thought of Bieber cracking open a cool Molson is so horrifying, how about sexual matters? "I want to do it at my own pace," he said. "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."

Rather worryingly he cited Michael Jackson as his yardstick of a successful pop star. He does have a restless ambition though, albeit expressed in a very wholesome way. "I want to be better than anybody who's ever done it. And in order to that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can."
