Justin Bieber Takes A Cue From Jay-Z In Teen Vogue

Justin Bieber has had his ups and downs this year but in a cover story from the May issue of Teen Vogue, he said that he takes a cue from Jay-Z when dealing with press rumors and pot-stirrers.

“I know who I am, and I’m very much in control,” he said. “I don’t need to address every speculation. Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond? He didn’t need to respond because he’s Jay-Z.”

He went on to explain that rather take things to Twitter to go after people who insult him, he thinks twice.

“I see so much stuff on the Internet, sometimes I just want to go to Twitter and just go after people,” he said. “But then I just think twice: If someone is dissing me, I’m going to make this person way more famous by tweeting them.”

Twitter is generally a positive spot for Bieber because of his fans. YouTube, on the other hand, is a different story; it’s there that he abides by the sage advice of “don’t read the comments” about oneself.

“My Twitter is really nice,” he said. “I have so many fans that I rarely ever see a nasty tweet. I don’t read YouTube comments because those can get you sad.”

The cover’s tagline, “Justin’s Crazy Year,” couldn’t be more true for the singer. The craziness continued last week when Bieber had an unfortunate interaction with German officials at the airport. Headed to Munich for a show, Bieber decided to bring his capuchin monkey along for the flight but didn’t have the correct documentation so his monkey had to be left behind. The Biebs now has 30 days to pick him up or he will be taken to an animal shelter.

Bieber’s Teen Vogue issue hits newsstands April 16. On the┬áspecial two-cover issue and in pictures from the spread, Bieber is clad in Melet Mercantile vintage flannel, a Hanes tank, A.P.C. jeans and his own jewelry.
