Life is pretty hard when you're on top--or at least that's what Justin Bieber says. From selling out Madison Square Garden and fighting teenage texting and driving, to having a number one movie and practically the biggest fragrance launch ever, the Biebs can literally do no wrong.

But here's some good news for all of the other entertainers and entrepreneurs out there: Bieber is taking a break--but only for a month because he has to get back in the recording studio and start making his second full-length record, which is sure to rule the charts.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the teen dream opens up about what he plans to do with all of his newfound free time. That is, when he's not crashing weddings with his girlfriend, Disney starlet Selena Gomez.

"I've been working so hard, I'm taking a month off," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "It's been great to just think and enjoy hanging out with my friends. I'm still growing up, and when you're working every day, you don't really get a chance to figure out who you are. So with the time off, I'm able to think, pray and just kind of grow up."
