Michael Jackson influences Justin Bieber’s career

Now, Justin Bieber confesses that everything in his career “is kind of modeled after Michael Jackson.”

Asked by Forbes magazine who he admires the most in the music industry, the Boyfriend singer replied: “I mean for me it’s only one person. Everything that I do is kind of modeled after Michael Jackson.”

But the current success is not enough for Justin Bieber as his manager, Scooter Braun, has plans for him to become a “mini mogul”.

“[Scooter] wants me to be knowledgeable about my business and know what I’m actually doing and not one of those artists that lets everybody take care of it. He wants me to be a mini mogul myself,” the singer said.

Scooter Braun praised him for his involvement in the business: “Justin spends at least one hour a week with myself, with the business manager, with the lawyer – going over scenarios in business and learning and dissecting it.”
