Justin Bieber did a book siging at Barnes and Noble in L.A. on Sunday and while he was at it spoke candidly about things in his life.
Justin Bieber did a promotional book signing event at a Barnes and Noble bookstore in Los Angeles on Sunday October 31 and while he was at it he revealed that he wants to be a Dad. Indeed it would seem that he wants to be a Dad sooner than later.
Not right away or anything, no he's but 16 and definitely smart enough to know that he's got lots of living and lots of singing ahead before taking on being a parent. But in an interview with the Associated Press before sitting down to talk to his fans and to sign books and have photos taken he candidly said that he wants fatherhood before he gets too old.
Bieber Sees Marriage and Fatherhood...One Day
"I see myself being like, 30, like, married, like, probably. I don't know. It seems far away for me" he told the AP. "But I want to be a young dad. I don't want to be old and not be able to kick around the soccer ball, you know?"
That wasn't the only subject he was candid about. He actually referred to himself as a "heartthrob" but it seems by the hesitation that he's not entirely comfortable with calling himself that. He made it clear he wants to continue taking singing seriously and named two well known singers who were in his position when younger and who he planned to emulate.
"I see myself making a smooth transition from being a teenage, um, you know, teenage heartthrob basically to, you know, to an adult singer," he said. "I want to make that smooth transition, kind of like Usher or Justin Timberlake did it."
Massive Line-up For Bieber to Sign First Step 2 Forever: My Story
The line-up for Sunday's signing saw over a thousand teen and tween girls, and many parents and even some boys, wait patiently for a chance to get Bieber's book Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story, signed by the Canadian singer, actor (he was recently in an episode of CSI: Las Vegas and now writer.
The interview wasn't long given all the book signing, fan-meeting and photos that he had waiting. He was asked about why write a book in the first place. After all with all that's been written about him it's easy enough to presume his fans know all there is to know. He's clearly though about the answer.
"I don't know if they know it completely. I've never gotten the chance to really tell them myself. I've told them in interviews and people have written articles, but it's not really from me," he pointed out. "I was able to write all my thoughts down and basically tell them, basically, how I'm feeling, you know? Just different stuff like that."
