Singer Justin has issues with getting close to new mates

Justin Bieber might have 37,045,234 virtual friends on Twitter but his circle of mates in real life is much smaller.

The 19-year-old superstar has revealed he’s cautious when it comes to forming bonds with new acquaintances because he worries their intentions aren’t always genuine. 

‘I get good vibes from people all the time, and I probably could get along with them and be their friend, but now I just don’t trust anybody,’ says Justin.

‘Literally, my phone never rings.’

Justin – who used to date Spring Breakers actress Selena Gomez, 20 – instead feels much more comfortable hanging out with a close-knit group of pals who can look past his fame.

‘I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with,’ Justin tells Teen Vogue.

‘I don’t need a bunch of friends to make me happy. I just need the people close to me that I love, that’s all.

‘They don’t see me as Justin Bieber, but just see me as Justin.’
