Justin Bieber wants to make it clear: he won’t be proposing to Selena Gomez any time soon.But in a new interview, which took place Thursday night at the Dolce & Gabbana store on Madison Avenue in NYC, the singer did speak on his future and a potential family and when the two might merge.
For Justin and Selena, first comes love… then comes marriage and a baby carriage?“By 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or looking for a family,” Justin said. “I want to be a young dad… if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25.”Among other topics covered by Bieber in the Q&A: his fashion icons and his mother. Excerpts are below.
On expanding his resume: “I want to eventually start a clothing line or a shoe line, something like that. But nothing is in the works right now. I’m just focusing on my music now.”
On remaining grounded: “I love to play sports and stuff. I love just hanging out with my friends. I’m just a regular 17-year-old. I grew up playing hockey so I like to get on the ice every once in a while. I love to play basketball and I try to play soccer as much as I can.”
On his fashionable role models: “Kanye West. Usher’s real cool. He knows way more about fashion than I do. I’m learning from him. He helps me put stuff together and find different designers who I’ve never heard of.”
On his mother’s influence: “She always pushed me to be the best that I can be. But she never pushed anything on me. She always let me do what I wanted to do. She let me follow my dreams. She never held me back.”
