'X Factor' Judge L.A. Reid: On the Greatest Thing Justin Bieber Could Learn From Britney Spears
“I think the greatest thing he can learn from Britney is that Britney always put out great songs,” he told reporters during a conference call Friday. “It’s a journey for anybody… almost everybody has peaks and valleys in their careers, especially if you’re around long enough.”
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on the Today show, Justin confessed, “I feel like I just don’t want to be another teen heartthrob.” And it’s no wonder why those who love him and love to hate him can’t seem to get the image of the baby-faced singer out of their heads! Justin walked onto the music scene five years ago at just 13-years-old.
Mentor L.A believes Justin will be able to make the transition as long as he remembers one thing: “If there’s anything that he can take out of Britney’s book, it’s always put out great songs.”
With his new album “Believe” out, Justin will have the opportunity to prove that he can do just that.
“I just think that just annoys me. To think that’s what people will – will think of me – or, like, I just want to prove people wrong.”
Do you “Believe” that Justin can be more than just another teen heartthrob?
