On buying a plane: “No way. It’s a total waste of money. You buy the plane, then you have to pay for storage, and on top of that you have to think about the fuel, the cost of the fuel – that’s maybe $4,000. Even hiring a private plane is like 50 or 60K. Once you get into that it becomes a habit – a bad habit. I’ll get one when I need it – if I have to go somewhere instantly – but you don’t want to buy a plane; it’s definitely not worth it.”
On music: “I never stop working. In what I wanted to do in music I’ve never had any fear. But now I’m at the top there’s nowhere to go but down; for me it’s about staying standing at the top. I’m not a kid any more – I’m an adult, I’m making the decisions and I want to keep on growing, and I believe I can.” Continue reading

The 2012 Billboard Music Awards are shaping up to be a one-of-a-kind event: Justin Bieber, LMFAO, Carrie Underwood and The Wanted are the first performers announced which will air May 20, 2012 on ABC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Justin Bieber is set to return with a hotly anticipated new album, “BELIEVE” (due June 19), that has already been previewed by the lead single, “Boyfriend.”
British boy-band, The Wanted, recently finished up their first tour of America, where they were met with a very enthusiastic response. However, the band was prepared for all the attention. They have toured with Justin Bieber in the past and when asked by MTV News what advice he gave them, Max George responded:
“I think he’s too humble for that, in that way. … He’s not someone that really gives advice, because I think he just appreciates what happens to him rather than thinks he’s God. And so, I mean, we don’t really talk music. When we speak to him, it’s more we talk about football or basketball.”
Jay McGuiness added: “I think he knows that we know how to do what we want to do in the same way that we could never tell him how to do what he does, ’cause he does it a lot better than we ever could.”
