Justin Busts Engagement & Tattoo Rumors
Justin cleared up some rumors, there was a story saying that Justin may be interested in getting a tattoo on the inside off his lip, “No, no, no, no. I think they wash out in like a year anyway. I don’t know if I’d go through the pain of getting one on my lip.” And there was also a rumor going around that he may be engaged, when girlfriend Selena Gomez was spotted wearing a ring with a cursive J. “First and foremost, I’m not engaged. You know, we’re still young, at this moment in time, this is where I am, so that’s all I can really say,” he says.
On His New Album
Justin has been busy in the studio lately, “We’ve been working with a lot of cool people and just trying to create the best sound for me. I’m now 18 and I’m going to be trying to get an older audience, as well as keeping my younger audience, but just making that good music that everybody can like and vibe to. I’ve been in the studio working with a bunch of different people like Timbaland, Pharrell, and just a bunch of cool people. But, then we’re trying to work with people that people aren’t familiar with. So, that we create something completely different as well. So, we’re making the best album we can,” he says.

Who Is Carly Rae Jepsen?
“Call Me Maybe” is actually by a new artist by the name of Carly Rae Jepsen, that Justin just signed, “I looked her up and I seen that she wasn’t signed and so I signed her” he tells us. But don’t expect Justin to immediately sign a lot of artists, “Right now, I am focusing on one [artist] at a time and making sure that I focus on one person, that’s what Usher did with me, was focus on me and he helped me tremendously. So, I am only looking at my mentor and trying to do my best,” he explains.
Carly then joined us on the phone and told us her reaction to finding out that Justin had looked her up, “Shock and awe and a lot of gratitude.” She tells us when she hears her song on the radio it’s, “Kind of hard to believe, it’s really, really exciting, it’s what I’ve been working for. So, it’s great.” Although she tells us, “I’ve not heard it like clubbing or anything like that.”
