Los Angeles: Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber says he is determined to prove that he`s not just another teen heartthrob.
Bieber, 19, said he wants to be more than just a teen heartthrob and vowed to prove his worth, reported Ace Showbiz.
"I feel like I just don`t want to be another teen heartthrob. I just think that that just annoys me. To think that`s what people will - will think of me - or, like, I just want to prove people wrong," he said.
The singer said his new album Believe is a step to shake off his heartthrob status.
"My new album has really showcased what I`m capable of... especially becoming an 18-year-old and becoming an adult. And hearing older people say, `Wow, this new album`s great. Like I didn`t know that was Justin Bieber`."
"Or, you know, `Wow, like I never used to listen to Justin Bieber`s music, and now I like his music.` Or `This `As Long As You Love Me` that`s Justin Bieber singing?` I like those reactions, because I feel like they`re now - they`re judging me based on my music and not based on, you know, my - a flick of my hair," he said.
