Justin Bieber wants to be an actor.
The ‘Baby’ singer – who had a guest role on US crime show ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ earlier this year -has caught the acting bug and “definitely” wants another role in front of the camera.
He said: “I definitely want to do more acting, and further my career in that area, that’s something I would love to do.”
However, despite having a talent for following a script, the 17-year-old heartthrob insists his recent documentary film ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never‘ – which chronicled his ascent to pop stardom – didn’t involve any acting at all and says a scene where his grandmother tells him to tidy his room was genuine.
Speaking on ‘The Kyle & Jackie O Show’ on Sydney’s 2Day FM: “It wasn’t scripted… whenever I’m at my grandmother’s she always tells me to clean up after myself, especially when I’m at home, but I’m not at home that often, I really don’t have a room at this point, it’s just kind of travelling all the time.”
And although he wants to branch out in his career, Justin is still concentrating on his music and hopes to secure some new collaborations.
He said: “I would love to perform with Stevie Wonder or Beyonce.”
Bieber, Angry Birds among Webby Awards nominees
Now that Justin Bieber has conquered much of the modern world, can he claim a Webby Award next? His nomination for “Justin Bieber Takes Over Funny or Die” competes among the online film and video categories for best “comedy: individual short or episode.”
It’s up against “Between Two Ferns,” which may have star power, but, frankly, is stupid -– just Steve Carell mocking Zach Galifianakis for being fat. It’s really thin on humor. Ditto the nominee titled “Kenny Gets Signed by K-Swiss.” Don’t even bother to watch it.
However, Bieber faces tough competition from a spoof of “Inglourious Basterds” titled “Grammar Nazis” and the Onion News Network’s “Police Slog Through 40,000 Insipid Party Pics to Find Cause of Dorm Fire.” They’re both hilarious.
Every award category will have two winners, one that’s chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and the other -– called the “People’s Voice” — by Web users. Obviously, Bieber will win the Web award because he has millions of fans, but will he also win the academy’s award?
Winners will be revealed on May 3. Cast your votes in this category at the Webby site. Vote in all categories here.
It looks like one of the pitfalls of being a global superstar has finally sunk in with Justin Bieber, as he took to Twitter to express some of his feelings about the paparazzi following his every move.
The Biebs has been touring the globe while on his My World 2.0 tour, with his latest stop being in Israel and by the looks from his Twitter, he’s had just about enough:
“amazing place…not a bad day. just wish got a little more space and privacy from the paps to enjoy this time with my family. thanks. im in the holy land and i am grateful for that. I just want to have the same personal experience that others have here. You would think paparazzi would have some respect in holy places. All I wanted was the chance to walk where jesus did here in isreal. They should be ashamed of themselves. Take pictures of me eating but not in a place of prayer, ridiculous. People wait their whole lives for opportunities like this, why would they want to take that experience away from someone. Staying in the hotel for the rest of the week u happy? It’s not the fans, and some of the paps were nice enough to leave. But some people just don’t have respect.”
Poor Biebs! Of course, Justin’s army of Beliebers were quick to console him, having the hashtag #cheerupjustin trend worldwide. With fans like that, we’re sure he can’t stay sad for long!
