The 'Boyfriend' star says he loves playing pranks on people and having fun with his friends.

Justin Bieber has described himself as a normal 18 year-old guy, and says he doesn't like to take himself too seriously.

The 'Boyfriend' star revealed he still enjoys doing normal things, like going out with friends to the cinema, despite his worldwide fame and just wants to "have a good time" on his travels across the globe.

"I'm a normal 18 year-old, you know?" Justin told Billboard, when asked what he enjoys in his spare time. "I like to do normal things, hang out with my friends, go bowling, go to the movies.

"I think what's cool is that I don't take myself too seriously," he explained. 'I like to joke around, play pranks on people and just have a good time." 

Speaking in the US magazine's June issue, the 'Never Say Never' star also said that he has a lot to thank the Internet for, having launched his career on Youtube at a very young age.

"My whole career launched from the Internet, so, without it I feel like I wouldn't even be here," Justin added. "I owe a lot of my success to social media, to Twitter, to YouTube and Facebook. It is also a great way to interact with fans."

After performing at Capital's Summertime Ball 2012 over the weekend Justin flew out to Mexico this week and performing a surprise show there on Monday evening (11th June) in front of 300,000 fans.

Justin Bieber is set to release his brand new album 'Believe' in the UK on 18th June and in the US on 19th June.
