The Boyfriend singer likes the British boy bands

Justin Bieber, 18, is glad he has competition from boy bands One Direction and The Wanted – because he now has people to hang out and have fun with at the events he has to attend.

It’s actually cool to have other young people on the scene. I’ve spent years being the only one at all these awards shows – now there are other people my age,’ says Justin.

I hang out with One Direction, and the guys from The Wanted are fun, really funny guys. I keep my distance when they go to clubs to have their fun – I go home.’

However the Beauty And A Beat singer doesn’t like to hit the clubs with the bands himself.

Drinking is definitely one way, but it’s not for me. I still want people to think I’m a good person, a good influence,’ Justin tells Live magazine.

I want to be around tomorrow.’
