Hotseat: Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber

Hundreds of you got in touch when we gave you the chance to put YOUR questions to pop star Justin Bieber!

The 15-year-old is already a huge hit in America and as been making waves in the UK charts with his debut album, My World.

We sent some of your most popular questions to the teen sensation and here's what he had to say...

What's your favourite song on My World, and are you coming back to the UK for the release of My World part 2?

It's hard to pick a favourite because all the songs mean so much to me. Down to Earth is very special to me definitely, since I was involved in the writing of it. It's a song that is very close to my heart.

If you could sing with any British artist or band, who would it be?

U2 are amazing to me. That would be awesome.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I find inspiration in everything, and especially in past experiences with life and girls and stuff.

Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Boys II Men definitely inspire me too, artists like that.

What's the best thing and worst thing about being famous?

Being able to perform for my fans is definitely the best part. Absolutely. It's a great privilege to be able to step on stage and perform for people who enjoy my music. I love it!

The worst part? Hmmm... It's hard to say when I'm having such a good time and travelling the world.

I'm from a small town so all these opportunities are incredible!

I'm learning to play an instrument... what was the first instrument you learnt to play, how old were you and how long did it take?

I started playing drums when I was two years old and I got my first drum kit when I was four.

I basically taught myself to play guitar as well, and later I learned to play trumpet and piano.

What's your worst habit?

If it's a habit I'd have to say I maybe eat too much candy. Ha ha!

Do you have to go to school and do homework like everybody else?

I have a tutor who travels with me on the road. School is definitely a priority of mine and I'd like to go to college one day.
