Los Angles: Justin Bieber`s third album ‘Believe’ has a more matured voice but his manager, Scooter Braun, says it is not appropriate to call him an adult artist yet.

"Adult artist? Just because he`s legal now doesn`t mean he`s an adult. He still needs guidance. He`s still finding his way. He`s no longer a boy, but he`s definitely not yet a man," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Braun as saying.

Bieber turned 18 in March this year and Scooter says he is proud of the singer because he has grown up fast and that too in the full glare of the public eye.

"No one in the history of the world has ever grown up with the pressure that he has, being a solo artist that young, that famous, in a world with technology that exposes us 24X7.

"He was literally going through puberty in front of the entire world, with everyone expecting something from him and a lot people waiting for him to screw up.

"He`s a fighter. I am proud of him how`s he`s stayed true to himself and taken control of the entire situation," he said.
