JUSTIN Bieber thinks people forget he is "a real human being."
The 21-year-old singer, who claims to have turned over a new leaf after multiple brushes with the law last year, says he wants his fans to be proud of him.
He said: "I'm a real human being. I think people forget that, and I'm growing up, I'm figuring some stuff out but I'm here to show people a new walk and I want people to look at me and be proud of me, you know, so that was all I really wanted to get across."
Meanwhile, the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker, who split from Selena Gomez last October after four years of dating, says he has no plans to include a response to her song 'The Heart Wants What It Wants' on his upcoming album.
But speaking to Ryan Seacrest on heat radio, he added: "I think a lot of my inspiration comes from her. It was a long relationship and a relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness and a lot of different emotions that I wanted to write about. "
Justin, who says he is currently single, is working with Kanye West on several tracks.
He said: "I've been in the studio with him for the past month or so. I think that he just pushes you. He definitely wants it to be my direction, but he pushes it. That's why artists love to go to him because he pulls something out of you that other people don't."
