Justin Bieber has pledged that his new songs won’t become all sweary when he turns eighteen in March, though he might write some lyrics about “making love”. So no “fucks” but maybe some fucking.

The Biebster says he is set on maintaining his clean cut image even as he becomes an adult, and doesn’t see himself becoming a boozy party animal living the rock n roll lifestyle. No, he’s aiming for something much more wholesome, you know, like his idol Michael Jackson.

The teen popster told V magazine: “I’m not going to try to conform to what people want me to be or go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol… I’m never going to make myself so the kids and the parents don’t respect me. I want to be able to do what Michael did. He always sang clean lyrics, [so] little kids loved Michael and grandparents loved Michael. I don’t want to start singing about things like sex, drugs and swearing. I’m into love, and maybe I’ll get more into making love when I’m older. But I want to be someone who is respected by everybody”.

So that’s nice. Perhaps he could also follow in the footsteps of his hero and pen a song all about a slightly loony fan accusing him of fathering her child, though where would he find the inspiration for that sort of thing?

Of course, some might question aspiring to be the new Michael Jackson. It would be nice for Justin to be able to sing like MJ did at his peak (yeah, like that’s going to happen), but isn’t the Biebster worried that following his hero’s career path might result in the personal life hardships Jackson suffered? No, says Bieber, cos his early rise to stardom hasn’t resulted in a messed up childhood.

Says Bieber: “Michael had a really bad childhood. I was blessed with a great childhood. My mom loved me. My dad loved me. I’m now a teenager and I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on anything in my life. I’ve gotten to experience everything I possibly could. I don’t look back and think: ‘Ugh, I wish I would have been able to do that’. Maybe [Jackson] missed out on a lot, so he tried to [re-live] his childhood when he was older. But I’ve got such good people around me, I’m not worried”.
