The 'Baby' singer admits he is not a kid anymore and won't be adhering to people's expectation of him.
Justin Bieber has confessed that he wants to become an artist who is respected by everyone.
The singer revealed that his subject matter in his songs will only be concerned with topics he wants to be associated with.
In an interview with V magazine he said: "People need to know I'm not a kid anymore. I don't want to start singing about things like sex, drugs and swearing. I want to be someone who is respected by everybody."
The teen star also added that he will endeavour to ensure he stays away from compromising situations which could lead to embarrassing pictures.
"I'm not going to try to conform to what people want me to be, or go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol. I want to do it at my own pace," he said.
Justin was recently spotted sporting a new Jesus tattoo on his leg during a family vacation and confessed to the publication that he doesn't believe he is strongly religious.
"I don't think I'm religious. I am spiritual," he added.
Meanwhile, the singer recently admitted that he had begun work on his new studio album 'Believe' full time with view to release it sometime this year.
Justin is featured in the latest issue of V fashion magazine.
