Justin Bieber Says He Doesn’t Like ‘Giving Too Much Personal Information Out’

Justin Bieber has claimed that being famous “can tear you apart” as it’s not all about the money, flash cars and fancy restaurants.

The 18-year-old, who is often surrounded by a swarm of shutterbugs, tries not to think of himself as a celebrity despite having sold millions of records, the millions of fans that follow him on Twitter and those vying to get his attention.

In an interview with Vibe magazine, the teen said: “What does that really mean, to be famous? In general, fame can tear you apart, so you can never really feel like you’re famous.”

He continued: “When people start acting like they’re famous, that’s when they start losing it.

“I don’t like giving too much personal information about where I live and the cars I drive. There are a lot of people in this world that aren’t good people, and all they need to do is a little research.”

Justin, who is dating Selena Gomez, also added: “People hiding in garbage cans overnight to catch [pictures] of me; crazy things happen. You can’t give out too much personal information.”

Do you think that Justin is about to become a whole load more closed off now that he’s growing up? Remember the days when he would tweet every little thing? Perhaps he’s learned his lesson?
