The Canadian star idolises the King of Pop.
Justin Bieber has told of his admiration for the late Michael Jackson, claiming that he someday wishes to be as influential with his own music.
The singer told Vanity Fair magazine, “Music is music, and I’m definitely influenced by Michael Jackson and Boyz II Men and people who were black artists – that’s what I like. But I like their voices and I like how they entertain – it’s not about what colour they are. Michael [Jackson] was able to reach audiences from young to old; he never limited himself.”
He continued, “He was so broad, everybody loved him, and that’s what my goal is – to basically make people happy, to inspire them, and to have everyone root for me.”
Bieber has also recently stated that his aim this year is to win a Grammy Award.
