The more grown-up sound that Justin Bieber is trying out on his new album Believe has earned the star plenty of comparisons to Justin Timberlake, but the Bieb insists that he doesn't hear it.
Speaking to Forbes, Justin says, "My voice doesn’t sound like his voice...I don't make any music that sounds like his music." However, he does admit, "I’m making pop R&B music and he made pop R&B music, so that could be the comparison. As far as fans, I have a lot of fans that are young and girls, so that’s another comparison."
Justin also reveals that he would definitely like to emulate Timberlake's movie success, and launch his own acting career sooner rather than later. He sees it as a way to free himself from his rigid recording and touring schedule, according to Forbes.
"I wanna make an album whenever I feel like making an album,” says the Bieb. “I think that’s what [Timberlake] does as well. He makes one when he feels it’s necessary to make it.”
