Justin Bieber Covers 'Vanity Fair': 'I'm Crazy, I'm Nuts'

A lipstick-kissed Justin Bieber covers the February Vanity Fair, and in the interview he opens up about his fame and the pressures of showbiz.

Here are a few excerpts, read more here.

On his mind:
"I'm crazy, I'm nuts. Just the way my brain works. I'm not normal. I think differently - my mind is always racing. I'm just ... nuts. But I think the best [musicians] probably are."

On staying sane:
"It's hard to really balance myself. A regular kid, if he catches the flu, he just gets to go home. But I can't do that.... Everything is important. But, you know, my sanity is important, too. Even if I'm angry, I'll just put a smile on my face and fake it."

On his insomnia:
"I just turn over all night and think. My mind races. I think about all the things I didn't have time to think about during the day - like family and God and things that should be more important but you don't have time to think about, because you just get caught up [in everything else] during the day."
