The pop singer has always had a way with words – these are some of his best quotes

It may be hard to Belieb, but Justin Bieber has always had a way with words. Growing up in the spotlight, the 21-year-old says he’s turned his life experiences into lessons – and isn’t afraid to sound off on touchy subjects.

Here are five nuggets of wisdom from the singer:

1. Love

The “Never Say Never” singer’s on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez has been very public.

In a recent interview with Complex magazine, Bieber addresses his views on love.

“Love is a choice. Love is not a feeling. People have made it seem in movies that it’s this fairy tale. That’s not what love is. You’re not gonna want to love your girl sometimes but you’re gonna choose to love her.”

In addition, he said: “If I have an awesome, bomb girlfriend, I’m gonna wanna show her off and go around and tell people my girl is the s—. I’m not gonna cheat on her because she’s the best.”

2. Christianity

The pop star has been very vocal about his religious beliefs and what it means to be a Christian and his reasoning might include a popular fast-food restaurant. (Yes, we’re serious.)

“At this point, my faith has gotten me to where I am,” Bieber told Complex. “My faith has brought me to a whole other level. I love talking about my faith. I think that with Christians, they’ve left such a bad taste in people’s mouths. Just like, overly pushy with the subject, overly churchy and religious.”

Furthermore, Bieber explains why he believes you don’t need to go to church to be a Christian.

“If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco,” he added. (Can’t argue with that!)

3. Style

Let’s be honest, Bieber is the king of “swag.”

“I wear black diamonds instead of regular ones because I’m not flashy, just flossy,” the “What Do You Mean” singer told Rolling Stone in 2011.

“That’s not the only fashion secret the Biebs is willing to share.

“I have a swagger coach that helps me and teaches me different swaggerific things to do He has helped me with my style and just putting different pieces together and being able to layer and stuff like that.” Trust Bieber to coin the term “swaggeriffic.”

4. Science

Bieber did graduate high school with a 4.0.

“I’m the type of dude who always wants to figure it out,” he told Compex. “Science makes a ton of sense. Then I start thinking – wait, the ‘big bang.’ For a ‘big bang’ to create all this is more wild to think about than thinking about there being a God. Imagine putting a bunch of gold into a box, shaking up the box and out comes a Rolex. It’s so preposterous once people start saying it.”

5. Oh, Canada

The Canadian-born singer will always stick to his roots.

“I’ll never be an American citizen,” he said in the Rolling Stone article. “You guys are evil. Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills.”

And that’s not the only bone he has to pick with America.

“I don’t really agree with war either, necessarily. I think everyone should just get along. I don’t understand why people attack. What’s the point of killing people – power? If no one cared about power, then no one would have wars. Canada doesn’t go around attacking people.”
