Justin Bieber says he wants to be a “young dad”. The pop star – who turned 18 on March 1 – answered questions from fans for MTV recently. He said that having a family is one goal he wants to achieve in ten years.
He said, “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.”
Bieber also says his life will change now that he’s 18.
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.”
Giving back is something he wants to do. He’s only been famous a short time and he’s already helping other young artists.
He shared, “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?”
