Justin Bieber’s life seems picture-perfect right now. After being chased down by Justin Timberlake and Usher , the 15-year-old soon-to-be pop star eventually signed a record deal with the latter.
On top of that, he already has a huge following online, where he is currently being followed by more than 200,000 people on Twitter. And the kids already love his song “One Time.” On Sunday (September 13), he’ll be making his big debut at the VMAs, where he plans to shout out a lucky fan’s name on the red carpet .
And yet, things will get even better for Bieber when he releases his album My World on November 17. “It’s gonna be a fun album,” he told MTV News. “It’s a lot about love and teen love and what would be in my world.”
The teen said that the album isn’t just a bunch of songs about girls; he also touches on some deeper subjects that he hopes will allow other teens to relate to his music. “There’s a lot of stuff that’s not just about love. There’s songs that teens can relate to, as far as parents not being together and divorce,” he explained. “And just stuff that happens in everyday life. There’s a lot of kids my age [and] their whole album [is] ’Everything is perfect.’ ”
Bieber noted that in his world, the outlook just isn’t that sunny. “Real life isn’t perfect,” he said, “so my album kind of portrays that. You just have to make the best of what you have.”
