Justin Bieber - Bieber Aiming To Emulate Timberlake

JUSTIN BIEBER is aiming to become the next JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and he's hired superstar songwriter SEAN GARRETT to help reshape his sound.
The teenage pop star is currently working on the follow-up to his hit album My World 2.0. and he's collaborating with Garrett, who has written songs for Usher, Ciara and Britney Spears.
Garrett admits 16-year-old Bieber is aiming for a more grown-up sound on the new record, and they are looking to Timberlake for inspiration.
He tells Billboard, "What we're trying to do with Justin is to segue him into young adulthood. The one great thing about Justin Bieber is the fact that his fans are going to grow with him. So we want all the fans that started out with him to still be intrigued and excited about him, but we want to also stretch out a little bit and make the fans that are 22-23 years old love Justin as well.
"When Justin Timberlake went from the last album of 'N Sync to his first solo album - I want to say (we're aiming for) that level. That's the bar for the type of song, that level of Cry Me a River, big records."

LMAO over Bieber thinking he has any fans that are 22 or 23 years old. His fans are more like 10, 11, and 12. He'll never be another Justin Timberlake either. Not enough talent. Not enough height either. lol

I think this is great! I absolutely love justin bieber, but his music is a little bit cookie cutter pop stuff...i was just saying a month or so ago that i can't wait until his music matures a little. PS i am 21 years old and love Bieber...he does have older fans.
