KARL LAGERFELD How do you see your career evolving? Do you still have unfulfilled ambitions?

JUSTIN BIEBER Of course. I’m still young. I still have so many personal and professional goals I want to achieve. I want to keep creating music for my fans. One day I hope to make strides into movies and fashion as well. I want to share my creativity with the world.

KL How do you imagine yourself at 30?

JB I hope I am still blessed to be performing and making music. I hope to have a family too.

KL I saw you perform onstage and I thought you were great. Do you enjoy performing live?

JB I love performing live. It’s my favorite part of my job.

KL Can you really play the guitar?

JB Yes.

KL What is the one thing you would never do in life?

JB Give up on myself, my family, or my fans.

KL Who are your favorite musicians from the past?

JB Michael Jackson.

KL When was the first time you had the feeling that you had become a success?

JB I performed at a water park in New York at the very beginning of my career and thousands of girls showed up to see me in the rain.

KL Do you imagine what your career would have been like without the Internet?

JB The Internet has been a huge part of my career. I was discovered on YouTube. I use Twitter, Instagram, Shots, and Fahlo to communicate with my fans on a daily basis. Things would be totally different without it. I definitely wouldn’t be able to have the personal relationship I have with my fans without social media.

KL What is the next step in your fabulous career?

JB I’m going to start working on a new album and a tour for 2015. I took the last year off and I’m excited to get back to work.
