The 'Boyfriend' singer says he wants people to give his new record a chance before deciding if they like it or not.
Justin Bieber says he hopes everyone will "take a chance" on his upcoming third album 'Believe'.
The 'Never Say Never' singer has said it is his responsibility to "be the greatest", and says he only expects people to dislike him if he makes bad music.
"I'm ready. I feel like it's my responsibility to be the greatest I can be," Justin told Complex magazine this week. "If I start making terrible music I don't expect people to like me.
"If I'm making great music and there's no reason for people to dislike me, that's when it's going to make me upset.
"People just need to take a chance and listen," the 'Mistletoe' singer added. "If they don't want to take a chance then I don't know. That's going to be the biggest problem, to make them feel like it's cool for them to like my music."
The Canadian singer-songwriter featured in a boxing themed photo shoot for the magazine's April issue, which sees him dressed in a tuxedo and boxing gloves with a bloody and bruised face.
Justin Bieber's new single 'Boyfriend', the first release from 'Believe', is due to be unveiled on Monday 26th March.
