Justin Bieber Says ‘Girlfriends Are Trouble’

Pop star admits he doesn't have much time for dating right now.

Now that Justin Bieber properly took over the VMAs , lined up a bunch of projects and even announced the release date for his forthcoming 3-D movie , one might think he would want to find that special someone to share his days with. But just moments after winning his Best New Artist VMA on Sunday, the 16-year-old megastar explained that he’s too busy for love right now.

“I mean, girlfriends are trouble at this age,” he explained to MTV News. “Girls are fun to hang out with but, like, having that one steady girl … we’re constantly traveling and one girl’s not gonna really [work]. You can’t really have one girl. I don’t really have any crushes at the moment.”

With so much going on in his life, the “U Smile” singer is just trying to balance his career and personal life. “Right now, the best thing is [that we're] just teenagers having fun doing what we love,” he explained. “We’re just staying ourselves and remaining humble.”

With his “Never Say Never” collaborator Jaden Smith by his side, Bieber revealed that he and the Smith family may work together again in the future, with Bieber possibly working with Will Smith on his next project. However, Bieber kept the details sparse, saying, “We’re trying to figure something out.”

In addition to trying to re-team with pal Jaden and family, Bieber said that for his next album, he wants to work with his friend and fellow Canadian Drake. “[It'll] probably [come out] fourth quarter next year,” he said. “Drake is gonna be on that album. I’m not sure [who else]. I’m gonna ask him if he can get [Lil] Wayne on there.”

The Moonmen have all been handed out and the stars have gone home, but there’s plenty of 2010 MTV Video Music Awards news, interviews, behind-the-scenes scoop, party reports and more still to come, so keep it locked on MTVNews.com.
