Justin Bieber Announces Tour Plans to Ryan Seacrest
Justin Bieber will likely be touring this summer. In a chat with Ryan Seacrest, the Biebs shared some details about his road plans, his second fragrance and why 'Boyfriend' was chosen as the first single from 'Believe,' which he says will be classic pop.
“After I finish my album and my album comes out, then I am going to rehearse for my tour and then I am going to go on tour. So, probably this summer, the end of summer," Biebs said about his tour plans, so we may be seeing him sooner than later. Hopefully, he and Madonna will cross paths so he can take her up on her tweeted offer to hop on stage with her!
Bieber confirmed that he will follow up his best-selling debut scent Someday with a second fragrance. He said, "Yes, we are doing that. We’re doing another one, it’s just a branch off of that and it’s a new scent." So it's an update, but somewhat new and fresh. Mmm! Smells good.
The teen also shared that choosing 'Boyfriend' as the lead single was not a decision that was arrived at easily or lightly by his team. It was a mission critical moment, since it was the first look (and hear) of what will be a landmark album in Bieber's career: he is at a pivotal point, crossing bridge from teen pop to adult pop.
He said, "It was a really hard choice. We had so many songs, so many up-tempos we could have released, and I thought we should slow it down a little bit. I feel like every single that’s dropping is like this [beats out a faster tempo] and you can only take so much of that, so I wanted to do something a little different, slow it down," he said. "It’s just something a little bit more mature but also something I think I’m ready for."
He also stated that he was intrinsically involved in the process of choosing the single, since it's always going to be his career, since managers, publicists, radio reps and the like can come and go, but he will always have to live with and deal with the consequences of the decisions that affect his career. Therefore, he must be involved.
"There’s so many people that are going to give me opinions and tell me how my career should go," he acknowledged. "But I’m the only one who can ultimately make those decisions, because I am the one who is going to have to live with my career for the rest of my life. So, I have to make those decisions, where I want my career to go. So I thought this was the perfect single, so that is why it was my first."
The Biebs also revealed that 'Believe' is going to have a classic pop vibe, and that it'll be timeless. He said, "It’s kind of classic, I feel. Because the songs I feel won’t get old. The music is very fresh, but it’s also I’m taking a lot from old school music, like a lot of Michael Jackson is inspired in this album. A lot of old R&B. A lot of old pop. Just stuff that I feel I can bring into, but also make fresh and new. So, it’s pretty special."
It's the Biebs – of course it's special.
