Justin Bieber and Scooter Braun Cover Story – The Hollywood Reporter

Justin Bieber Scooter Braun Hollywoodreporter

Justin Bieber on the cover of the November 29 issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Justin gave THR magazine lots of access for an article about his transition from tween idol to grown-up artist, and the way his manager Scooter Braun sees that going down.

7 Things We Learned from the Hollywood Reporter Cover Story, via Time.com

1. “Swag” is over: Though Justin can’t resist using the slang term (“It’s a lifestyle — like a suaveness or a swag, per se,” he tells reporter Shirley Halperin), he always declares the once-dominant term “played out.” (YouTube find of the day: Justin saying “swag” for 30 minutes straight.)

2. He gets daily scripture texts and weekly Will Smith calls: A pastor named Judah Smith sends him a personally chosen bit of biblical wisdom every day; Will Smith speaks to him on the phone every week about any problems Bieber is having.

3. That Anne Frank thing was not unprompted: Justin drew massive amounts of scorn for writing in the Anne Frank House’s guest book that Frank might have been a Belieber, during a visit to Amsterdam early this year. But, claims Scooter Braun, Justin didn’t just come up with that sentiment on his own. According to Scooter, the museum staff pointed out the pictures of movie stars admired by Frank and drew the first comparison between her fan-ish tendencies and modern-day Beliebers.

4. Tom Hanks and Eminem have offered to counsel Justin: When news of him in trouble comes out, celebrities come forward to offer advice. Tom Hanks was offered as a counselor by his wife Rita Wilson, and Eminem’s manager offered to have the rapper gives Justin advice.

5. Nobody has ever said “no” to Justin Bieber: At least according to a scene in the upcoming movie Believe, as reported by THR, he can’t think of a time something he wanted was denied.

6. Justin Bieber has donated a dollar of every concert tour ticket, from two tours, to charity: That adds up to $13 million. Not too shabby.

7. Justin is a teen-mag champ: He’s been on every single cover of Tiger Beat this year.

When Braun brought Bieber to Atlanta to record his first album, he says he took the responsibility of watching over a then-13-year-old very seriously. “I changed my lifestyle because I had to be a role model,” he says. “When Justin was younger, it was, ‘Keep him out of trouble, stop him from falling down, protect him as much as you can from anything that can hurt him.’ ” Today, Braun admits it’s a different dynamic. “When I try to do that now, he’s resentful, he pushes away and rebels,” says Braun. “What I’ve come to learn is: Be there, give the best advice you can, but he has to be allowed to make his own decisions — and his own mistakes.”

It was a lesson learned the hard way for Bieber and Braun as the two found themselves increasingly at odds with each other over the past year. “I saw the rebellion, I saw our relationship being hurt,” says Braun. “We were struggling in talking to each other because I wasn’t having conversations about anything good anymore. It was constantly calling to say, ‘No!’ ”

Bieber doesn’t disagree. “It’s like how a parent sees their kid,” he says. (Dad Jeremy Bieber remains in the picture, but less so than mom Mallette, who lives down the road from her son; Bieber has a roommate.) “Scooter was like the father figure in my life. But when I started to grow up, it was hard for him to have to listen to my input. I want to be me, to show everybody who I am as an individual. I don’t want to just be a puppet.”

At the same time, Braun has gotten heat for what many see as being an enabler. Says the industry insider, “When you’re constantly telling your teen artist what a genius they are and saying yes to everything they ask, it ultimately harms them.” Fittingly enough: One of the most off-the-cuff and real scenes in Believe involves director Chu asking Bieber if, now that he’s over 18, people have told him “no.” The teen pauses for a minute to think, then answers with a smile: “No,” as the room explodes in laughter.

      • KALANI

        CURIOUS TO KNOW IF HALF OF THE THINGS THEY SAY IS MADE UP. WHAT DO THEY JUST SIT AT THERE COMPUTER AND SAY OKAY. I THINK I’LL MAKE UP A STORY. SOURCES SAY JUSTIN AND ASHLEY BENSON OR SHAY MITCHELL WERE CAUGHT KISSING AND HOLDING HANDS. BUT REPORTS SAYS JUSTIN AND ASHLEY BENSON ARE SECRETLY DATING.

      • Kalani

        Tmz knows nothing about Justin. Or what he does on his off days. I would guess Justin is tired of all the BS that’s been said about him.

  • Kalani

    Scooter seems Like a older brother to Justin. Since he has drake and of course bestie Alfredo to give him advice on certain topic. I love Justin. Selena has it made. She doesn’t need anyone to give her advice.

  • Havila alves

    NADA HÁ DECLARA

  • Belieber

    Its great that Justin has mostly scooter and will to be like a great supporter towards him. They are both great (:

  • hannah bieber

    Wow :) :) hahah I knew all those rumors were fake :) :) and I agree he needs counseling and I know eminem will give him good advice

    • eliza Gonzalez

      False rumors don’t surprise me ! Because i know they are all just made up by haters and spread by fools from the media and believed by brainless idiots with no f#cking life.

      • eliza Gonzalez

        Sadly i used to be one of those brainless fools until i saw reality about the media that makes up stupid dum ass lies :/

  • nicki

    THE PICTURES LOOK AMAZING AND HOT! I LUV THEM ALL AND I LUV YOU GUYS! HAVE A GREAT TIME! LUV YOU GUYS SO MUCH! :)

  • ivan

    Eminem also had many problems growing up even drugs but has straightened his life up so he could be a good influence to Justin. He needs positive people around him as he matures into a full adult; he’s still like a kid wanting to have fun and do what he missed growing up.

    • KALANI

      JUSTIN DOES HAVE POSTIVE PEOPLE AROUND HIM. HE HAS HIS RENTS AND COURSE SCOOTER. BUT HE ALSO HAS WILL AND DRAKE HIS BOYS. I FEEL SORRY FOR JUSTIN. HE’S TRULY AMAZING GUY. WHO DOESN’T LOVE JUSTIN.

  • ivan

    It’s good he addressed the spitting on his fans fake story; that’s a reason he lost some younger fans who lost trust in him and went to other teen idols; maybe they will come back?

  • KIDRAUHL FOREVER

    Justin Is A Per-Fect

  • Zoey

    Im grinning frome one ear to another. Justin is growing actually, he’s maturing albeit at a slower rate than most he is maturing. Nevermind the antics. Reading this interview kinda showed me that Justin does actually have a good head on his shoulders!! Im glad!!

  • eliza Gonzalez

    Que estará asiendo en los días que le dan libre talvez esta en los clubs de noche divirtiéndose

  • ♥belieber&jelenator♥

    the word swag is over…hmm .. well now people can say it

    • ivan

      He still uses it in his concert in one of the songs [out of time girl] but stopped using it as he used to.

      • tiffany

        i wouldn’t cARE IF IT WAS OVER.SWAG IS BEING CONFIDENT IN YOURSELF AND JUST BC PPL DON’T USE IT NO MORE I WOULDN’T CARE BC I CAN STILL USE IT CUZ IT’S A FREE COUNTRY AND IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO BRING IT BACK AND I DC IF PPL WOULD MAKE FUN OF ME

  • ivan

    Keep in mind there are people out there that are miserable, hateful, obnoxious, and cruel; they will continue to hate on Justin no matter what he does or says until their miserable lives end. If you see the comments on a site like TMZ you will see what i mean. They make terrible comments not only about Justin, but also Harry Styles, Austin Mahone, Michael Jackson, and others

    • tiffany

      HATERS THEY JUST ENVY HIM AND THEY WISH THEY WERE HIM AND THEY CAN DENY IT ALL THEY WANT THEY WOULD TRADE THEIR HOPLESS LOSER “LIFES” FOR HIS AMAZING LIFE ANY DAY AND THEY KNOW IT.SOME HATERS ON TMZ AND EVERYWHERE ELSE ARE SOME 40-YR OLDS WHO GOT NOTHING BETTER TO DO IN THEI LIFES THEY JUST CAT PPL AND RETARDS.THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED,PICKING ON A 19-YR OLD LIKE THAT.

  • Selenator
