Justin Bieber had some choice words for his critics during his rather candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter's Shirley Halperin.
"I don't give a f**k what they say," the 19-year-old Baby singer said of his haters. "I know who I am and what I'm doing in my life and what I've accomplished and continue to accomplish as a performer, as a writer, as an artist, as a person, as a human being. I'm happy with the man I'm becoming."
As for all the negative press he's been receiving, this year especially, Bieber thinks it's all just because negative stories sell. "Every time some site writes something bad, all my followers go on there, and it brings them more traffic. Now they have all the Beliebers on their site, which gives them money from advertisers. They're just worried about money. They don't care about ruining someone's name."
So, what's next for this teen heartthrob? Bieber told THR (watch interview) that he's only just begun. "Michael Jackson didn't do Off the Wall until he was about 23. Bad, not until he was, like, 25 [Jackson was 29]. I have all the time in the world."
The pop star's second documentary Believe (WATCH trailer) hits theaters Christmas Day, and pre-sale tickets are on sale now.
