The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer says he still hopes to win a Grammy award at some point in his career.
Justin Bieber has finally spoken out about being snubbed by the Grammy Awards this year and says he "felt that same" as his manager Scooter Braun, who hit out at the snub on Twitter after the nominations were announced.
Despite the 'Boyfriend' star's huge success over the past year he failed to secure any nominations for the Grammy Awards 2013, leading Scooter to tweet that the board had "blew it on this one".
Justin had so far remained silent on his reaction to the snub, but now admits it did bother him at the time but that he has moved on and is now looking to the future.
"I felt the same way that Scooter felt, I just can't really, it's good that he can put it out there and say that," Justin reveals in the new issue of Billboard. "He had my back just like any manager would.
"My whole life I've dreamed of winning a Grammy [but] at this point the excitement of that has gone down," the 'As Long As You Love Me' star explained. "I'm more excited to just make great music for my fans.
"That's just something that if it happens, it happens," Justin went on to say, before clarifying that he is very excited for everyone else who was nominated.
"I'm so happy for the other artists who got nominated and have won Grammys. I'm 18 and I think that I have a lot ahead of me, so I'm not worried."
Justin then confirmed that he will not be present at the Grammy Awards ceremony next month, and named Chris Brown as his pick to walk away with an award on the night.
"I'm a fan. His music is really good. That's what they should focus on, the music," Justin added.
