Justin Bieber Compares Himself to Jay-Z

Justin Bieber covers Teen Vogue's May music issue, in which the popstar addresses the "crazy year" he's been having, which so far has included getting kicked out of a London club, a paparazzi fight caught on tape and an allegation that he assaulted his Calabasas neighbor.

But despite reports of a Bieber meltdown, the 19-year-old insists that he's still "in control."

"I know who I am, and I'm very much in control," Bieber tells the mag via The Cut.

He also insists that he doesn't "need to address every speculation," and in the process compares himself to superstar Jay-Z.

"Remember when Cam'ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn't even respond," Bieber says. "Why didn't he respond, because he's Jay-Z."
