Want people to focus on my music: Justin Bieber

London: Pop star Justin Bieber hopes his new `Believe Acoustic` album will make people focus on his music and appreciate him as an artist.

The 18-year-old hopes his fans talk about his music rather than his personal life and thinks the record will prove his real talent to critics, reported Daily Star.

"It`s just good music. It just shows that I wasn`t made, I was found on YouTube and it shows people music is music. That`s what you need to focus on - listening to the music. I`m an artist. I`m not - I`m a singer and I want to show people what I love to do," he said.

The `Baby` hitmaker, whose on-off relationship with Selena Gomez has been the subject of much recent speculation, says the record shows off his raw side.

"I wanted to basically strip it down so it`s just me and an acoustic guitar. Some of it is me and a piano but most of it is just raw me. I think the fans really like it because it`s just kind of how I started. I started with just me on the internet."
