Eighteen year old Justin Bieber is insistent that his career is not just a flash in the pan.
Teen sensation Bieber wants to have an extensive and successful career that is not limited to his adolescent years.
He said: "I don't want to be just another teen heartthrob. I know some people are waiting for me to fail, thinking, 'Oh, his time's up.' Well, I like being the underdog, and this tour is my chance to take things to the next level."
Whilst preparing for his upcoming Believe tour, the singer has been taking tips from the hugely successful career of Michael Jackson.
He said: "I've been watching (videos) of his concert tours over and over, he's my inspiration."
He added: "When my team gets together, we're always asking, 'What would Michael do?'."
