In a recent interview, Justin Bieber talked about his senior Mariah Carey and ruled out a duet project with the R&B singer. The 16-year-old singer explained her new music in "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" is the reason why he doesn't want to collaborate with her.

"I don't love her new music, it's not the same," the Canadian pop singing sensation told The Sun. "It's like Michael Jordan coming back out to play in the NBA. She is past her best."

While he is not interested to team up with Mariah Carey, the young pop star said he would love to hook up with British songbird Corinne Bailey Rae. "She's a talented artist and seems like a nice person," he reasoned.

Another thing that he discussed was his life as an ordinary kid despite the fact that he is a big star now. "I'm a grounded person. I don't need security when I'm home as they know who I am. I live with my mum and tour with my dad," he stated. "I'm just a regular 16 year old kid. I make good grilled cheese and I like girls. I have to do my homework which is a chore. English is my best subject but I'm bad at chemistry."

"I could finish this year but I want to continue at school until I'm 18 in case I decide to go to college. I don't want to limit my options. You never know how things are going to work out."

Beside doing an interview, Justin Bieber also did an acoustic set, singing a cover version of Usher's "You Got It Bad" and his own songs "Baby" and "Never Let You Go".

Watch the acoustic set here.

Update: Justin's camp said that the Sun who reported this diss is not telling the truth and now it seems that The Sun has deleted this quote from their own article. I checked the article again and it seems to be true. The Sun has erased the quote from the article. Shame on you!

No wonder. I was all confused when I saw it because everyone knows Mariah can sing and that Justin is not like that. Not only that but Justin and Nick Cannon are good friends. The Sun is horrible.

They should already know that Justin only disses one person: Miley Cyrus. ahhhakakaka

Despite recent attempts to assume the vacant King of Pop throne (most notably by the members of the House of Jonas), it’s been a bleak interregnum. But a Justin Bieber-led restoration may soon be on the cards. As the impish prince of teen idolatry, Bieber — the 16-year-old YouTube breakout star turned bona fide pop royalty — has captured the popular imagination, sending teenage girls (real and honorary) into paroxysms of passion and mall-security guards into nervous fits every time he makes a public appearance. T paid court to Bieber, whose eagerly awaited new album, “My World 2.0,” is out today.

Hey, Justin, thanks for doing this. I know you’re superbusy this week. Walk me through a typical day for you at the moment.
No problem, sir. Every day is different, whether I am performing or doing interviews, but I definitely have long days, especially with the new album coming out. I have a lot of people who want to talk to me, and I am doing a lot of TV shows and stuff. Then I do dance and vocal warm-ups and cool-downs every day. The voice is like any other muscle, you have to exercise it. But if I am lucky I will get six hours of sleep a night. There are times when I get to come up for air, but most of the time I am working a lot and just having fun with it.

Since you’re in the mood for fun: inquiring minds what to know about your hair. Let’s talk man-bangs — how do you get hair like that?
[Laughs] I’d love to be able to say it was complicated, but I’m just chilling. My hair takes five minutes to do in the morning. I shower and as soon as I get out I just shake it and it just does that. For real.

Who would win in a hair-off between you and Zac Effron?
I’ll let you decide. But all I’ll say is that it’s no competition.

Ha. You’re at a point where most people are discovering their personal style but may not have the budget that you have these days. What are you splurging on?
I don’t actually spend a lot of money. The last big thing I bought was a car for my birthday because I just got my driver’s permit. I’m not a splurger, but I like clothes like G-star and I really like shoes — I wear Supers a lot. I wear a lot of hoodies, but I also like Alexander McQueen. I think he is very original and does amazing stuff.

Unfortunately, he died recently. 
Rest in peace. I didn’t know that. But I think I have my own style — I like to try to dress fun but keep things simple and me — and like to dress myself, I have no stylist to help me if that’s what you mean.

What about your “swagger coach”? Doesn’t he help you with fashion? 
It was kind of a joke we had at first. We didn’t really know exactly what his role was – I guess he was sort of came on as my stylist, to develop what I like. So we kind of made up this swagger-coach title and now everyone refers to it. But it’s not like he is teaching me how to swagger.

Do you miss not being able to go to the mall during the day?
I definitely miss being able to walk around the mall and stuff, but I love what I am doing and I love that I can perform for millions of people and have their support. But there are ups and downs, you know, like everything else. Right now I try to stay positive and not worry about the negative and work on how I can become a better person.

Are you still buddies with Usher?
He’s working on his album and I have been working on mine, so we haven’t got to see each other as much as before but he is a great friend of mine and I talk to him at least once a week.

Everything I’ve read about you suggests that you’re lucky not to have a stage mom from hell. But doesn’t it get too much traveling with her all the time?
My mom’s amazing and so supportive. She’s not pushy and respects everything I do. It can get irritating — what 16-year-old do you know who is with his mom 24/7? But we take breaks from each other every now and then. Like now, I am in London and she’s back home. But I love my mom, I love her and I miss her to death.

What’s different about the new album?
We did most of it in Atlanta this time. We had Ludacris and worked with a lot of cool people like Tricky and The-Dream. My first album was actually my first time in the studio so I hope this new one is a lot better. I was basically a rookie last album because it was during my first year.

Says the wise old man of 16.
Yes, I’m so old, right? But I am definitely more comfortable in a studio setting and stuff.

Lyrically, are you also growing up? A recent song you did for Wal-Mart, “Where Are You Now?”, talked about your dad being absent after your parents broke up and revealed another side of you.
I think I am growing up and that the lyrics show that. That song is about my dad and having him not always being there. But my dad and I now have a great relationship. And I’m fine that stuff like that is coming out. I want to sing about things that are going on in my life, and a lot of people will be able to relate to it.

Finally, you’ve been a viral Internet sensation since you posted a video of yourself doing a cover of Matchbox 20’s “3 A.M.” in a singing competition a couple of years ago. Are there any viral videos that you’re obsessed with?
For sure. I really like “Scarlet Takes a Tumble.” This girl is singing on a table and gets a little carried away and falls off. It’s stupid, and I’ve seen it a million times, but I still think it’s hilarious.


You Got It Bad


Never Let You Go


Justin Bieber on ‘My World 2.0,’ Fans, and His Future

Right now, no teen singer is a hotter star than Justin Bieber. From a two-day stint on “The View,” to a coming North America tour, Biebermania–is that a word yet?–is catching on.

The day before his new album “My World 2.0” hits stores and the launch of his new Web site, the 16-year-old Bieber talked to Speakeasy about his crazy fans, rapping and how he handles all the jokes about him.

Speakeasy: You always seem to do a lot of R&B covers. What is it about the genre that you gravitate towards?
Justin Bieber: Growing up, it was just something I wanted to listen to; “On Bended Knee” by Boyz II Men. I like Ne-Yo’s “So Sick”, “Because of You”. Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana”, so yeah.

Anyone in your iPod Justin Bieber fans might not expect?
I like a lot of classic rock. I like Led Zeppelin. I think they’re a really good band. I like a lot of classic rock, the Beatles, AC/DC, stuff like that.

In your stage show, you’re starting to break into dance moves and incorporate some choreography. Has that been difficult for you?
It’s been a little difficult. I didn’t dance my whole life; it’s kind of something I learned, but it takes a little bit of vocal training and stuff like that to keep my voice in check until the [end of the tour September] fourth.

What’s your favorite song to perform on the album?
My favorite song on the album to perform is “Baby”.

Ludacris is a guest rapper on “Baby”, but when you perform the song live, you rap his part. Do you enjoy doing that and does it make you want to take a stab at rapping yourself?
I just have fun with it. Luda’s hilarious, fun to work with, and I don’t always have him there, so I just do it myself. I own it. I have my fun with rapping; it’s just a fun thing to do.

How did you get Drake to be in the “Baby” video?
We met at the hotel we were staying at the day before the Grammys. He’s from Canada too so he wanted to show some support.

When you did the remake of “We Are The World”, you lead off the song, taking Lionel Richie’s part. Did you know that was going to happen?
We were in there, and we didn’t know that was going to happen. They did that last minute. Lionel was like, “I think you should sing my part.” I ended up doing and it was a lot of fun. I would really like to work with Lionel [again]. He’d be fun to work with.

A lot of people joke about you. How do you handle being a punch line and have you heard a joke about you that actually made you laugh?
There was a skit on Funny Or Die about me that was hysterical. People joke about me and it’s always fun to laugh about yourself. That’s the coolest thing about Justin Timberlake is he’s able to laugh about himself.

What are some of the craziest things you’ve seen fans do to get your attention?
I’ve seen girls flash me before; it’s happened a couple of times. It’s kind of crazy that girls would do that to get my attention. When we’re jogging, girls chase us. They’ll just do anything to get my attention.


The final concert of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo featured teen singers Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez and tickets to the show sold out fast. Some fans shared a special experience when they had the opportunity to meet Bieber, courtesy of an event promoted by Hot 95.7 FM.

The Bieber fans were able to join the teen singer in a friendly game of bowling with him on Sunday afternoon before his concert at Reliant Stadium.

The contest winners gathered at 300 Houston bowling center.

Hot 95.7 FM asked listeners to be the 20,000th person to send a text message to win every time they gave away a slot. At one point, the station received so many text messages that it caused some serious issues for their test provider.

Bieber talked with fans, signed autographs, posed for pictures and showed of his some of his bowling style on the lanes.
