Justin Bieber reveals Jacko inspiration

Justin Bieber has revealed that he is influenced by the late Michael Jackson in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine.

Biebs explained how the late King of Pop’s music reached out to people and how it had inspired him to do the same.

"Music is music, and I'm definitely influenced by Michael Jackson and Boyz II Men and people who were black artists - that’s what I like. He told the magazine.

“I like their voices and I like how they entertain - it's not about what colour they are."

"Michael [Jackson] was able to reach audiences from young to old; he never limited himself."

He continued: "He was so broad, everybody loved him, and that's what my goal is - to basically make people happy, to inspire them, and to have everyone root for me."

Could we see some Jacko classics on future Bieber albums?
