The 'Mistletoe' singer says he intends to continue gaining more and more older fans with his music.
Justin Bieber says he gets "annoyed" when people label him as just another teenage heartthrob and says his new music has shown people that he is becoming more of an adult artist now.
The 'Boyfriend' singer has taken part in a new interview for The Today Show in which he admits to having a strong desire to prove people wrong about his longevity in the music business, and says he thinks new album 'Believe' has changed a lot of people's minds about him.
"I feel like I just don't want to be another teen heartthrob," Justin revealed to host Ryan Seacrest during the interview. "I just think that just annoys me.
"To think that's what people will, will think of me, I just want to prove people wrong," the 'Never Say Never' singer explained. "My new album 'Believe' has really showcased what I'm capable of - especially becoming an 18 year-old and becoming an adult.
"And hearing older people say, 'Wow, this new album's great. Like I didn't know that was Justin Bieber," the Canadian star added.
