Justin Bieber Says He Strives to Win a Grammy on ‘Rock Center’ Interview
Justin Bieber sat down with the equally well-coiffed Ryan Seacrest for a chat on NBC's 'Rock Center,' which was the continuation of his 'TODAY' piece, in which he revealed that he was supposed to be named Jesse, from yesterday morning (Sept. 13). With all of his massive success and accolades, the Biebs revealed the one thing he is dying to achieve is a Grammy on his mantle.
Overall, it was a standard news package that delved into his social media presence, his love for the Beliebers and offered some commentary from manager Scooter Braun, who said they probably broke every child labor law by pulling a 25/8/366 schedule when Bieber was an up 'n' comer and before he had billions of YouTube views and tens of millions of Twitter followers.
But that Grammy remains at the top of his goal list. Seacrest asked him what he thinks about at night when pondering his career, to which he replied, "Well, Grammys, because I haven't won a Grammy. When I was little, I was like, 'What if I won a Grammy?' So that's what I'm hoping for."
He has been nominated, but when he lost the Best New Artist Grammy to Esperanza Spaulding in 2011, Beliebers went bat-you-know-what crazy and hacked into her Wikipedia page and made nasty comments. All because she beat their hero fair and square for the Grammy gold. Those Beliebers are a dedicated bunch. Something tells us that the Biebs will eventually take home a statuette.
The piece also promoted his upcoming book, 'Just Getting Started,' so even though the singer is the most visible product of the digital age and an exemplary millennial, he still looks to an old media form to reach fans.
