Justin Bieber is on this week’s issue of Billboard. Just in time since his new album Believe will be released on June 19. The magazine piece on Justin has the singer talking about one of the songs that could be about girlfriend Selena Gomez.
The tune Be Alright was written when he was in Japan during his last tour. It’s about the challenges of a long distance relationship.
He says,”That song is really special to me. Listeners will be able to get where I’m coming from, because long distance relationships are hard–being overseas, or in a different place in general, and having to maintain a relationship is tough. In the song, I’m letting the other person know that everything’s going to be alright.”
Justin also shares his appreciation that social media had helped his career.
“Your life is out there a lot more, especially nowadays when everybody has a HD camera phone on them at all times. But my whole career launched from the Internet, so without it, I feel like I wouldn’t even be here. I owe a lot of my success to social media, to Twitter, to YouTube and Facebook. It is also a great way to interact with fans.”
As for being 18 – his manager Scooter Braun thinks Justin still has a lot to learn.
He says, “Adult artist? Just because he’s legal now doesn’t mean he’s an adult. He still needs guidance; he’s still finding his way. He’s no longer a boy, but he’s definitely not yet a man.”
