Justin Bieber explained to ‘Vanity Fair,’ magazine:
“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. But I like their voices and I like how they entertain – it’s not about what colour they are. Michael was able to reach audiences from young to old; he never limited himself.”
“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.”
Justin also admitted that in order to achieve the same success as the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker, his aim this year is to win a Grammy Award. Justin has made no secret of his aim to win one of the prestigious gongs, recently telling the’ Early Show,’ that it would “mean the world,” to him if he received one of the two awards, he is nominated for at the ceremony later this year. Michael is also nominated for a Grammy award.
