On Thursday, Justin Bieber became a man in the eyes of the law as he celebrated his big 1-8. In honor of the momentous occasion, we thought we'd bring you Bieber's responses to some more of your burning questions. Beliebers wanted to know everything from what his life plans are to how things have changed since becoming famous.
MTV News toasted to Bieber's birthday in a number of ways — we asked his famous pals like Usher and Lil Wayne to send shout-outs and counted down his top 18 moments so far — but answering fans' questions may be one of the biggest highlights of his birthday week. So read on below for the scoop and be sure to click on the video to see/hear what else Bieber had to say — that means you @We_Love_SellyG and @Isabellaxxlove!
@LeilaaCarteer & @AlissaValley: Now that you are 18, how do you think your life will change?
Justin Bieber: Well, 18 requires a lot of responsibilities; moving out requires me to be alone, without my parents. So, legally, I can make any decision I want. My mom's still going to be there, probably, calling me every day. Probably won't be able to get away from her for too long. Eighteen's going to be fun. I look forward to a lot of touring and a lot of spending time with my fans, so 18 is going to be a great year.
@BieberCal: How has helping people made you a better person?
Bieber: Giving back is one of the most amazing things that I'm able to do with my career, just being able to pay it forward. I was signed by Usher, a fellow artist, and I was recently able to sign a girl named Carly Rae Jepsen, who has a single called "Call Me Maybe," so she's blowing up right now. It's a great song. She's great, so why don't I help her get out of Canada?
@alexqte: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Bieber: I see myself acting. I have some ideas right now I'm working on. I see myself in 10 years having a family. Twenty-eight, that's a good time to really have a family 'cause I want to be a young dad. Maybe, [it's a] long time away though. Don't get any ideas, people. It's not happening anytime soon.
@Just_Bieber_xo: Do you think you've changed since becoming famous?
Bieber: Yeah, I've changed, hopefully not for the worst since this all happened. I was young, I was 12 or 13 when everything started to happen so, of course, I've changed physically and mentally and stuff, but always kept my fans first and always kept God first. That's the most important thing.
Happy 18th birthday, Justin Bieber! Now that we've counted down the superstar's 18 greatest moments, stick with MTV News as we celebrate the milestone.Related Videos
