Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber is convinced he has been embraced by the hip-hop community because he isn't a "corny" Disney star like his contemporaries Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. The 16-year-old singer is mentored by R&B superstar Usher, and Ludacris provided a rap cameo on his hit track "Baby".

Bieber is glad hip-hop's finest are fans of his pop sound - and he's adamant they are keen to work with him because he didn't follow the same route to fame as many other teen artists. He tells MTV.com, "I like hop-hop a lot. I'm really glad they've taken a liking to me. Having Luda and having Lil Wayne give me shout me out on UStream, you know - it's cool."

"I think it's because I didn't go through the Disney route. I didn't go corny, but, like, at the same time I've been cool and collected." But there is one former Disney child star Bieber is inspired by - ex-"Mouseketeer" Justin Timberlake.

He adds, "Well, basically I look at people like Usher and Justin Timberlake and how they went from being a child star to blowing up and doing what they're doing now. I look up and see what they do and see that's what I want to do... and things that I want to do that's different and things that I wanna do that's working for them."

Why do people hate some celebrities? I always wanted to be on disney channel but now that i think abt it, most disney stars have scandals becuz their put into a cookie cutter lifestyle. Does the disney channel ppl or company really make the stars have to be perfect and good? Or do people exaggerate? So it is better to not go on disney channel. & plz dnt be rude. I only wanna knw. Ok. Thnx (= . Oh & how do fans become fans? Like what makes a song become such a great hit and for ppl to rlly want to come see you perform.? Is it you as a singer being unique and not copying a singer? & lastly, how can i tell what type of music genre i should sing? I like pop, r&b, & hip hop. Thank yu all. (=

from what i've seen his fan base is a lot of the same as people who like disney. Its almost like he has unofficially gone the 'disney route' even if he doesn't think so. like it or not, thats how he's grouped, and will continue to be at least until he looks older and gets more established.

aww hes so cute...& the people dissing him & saying all this crap, could you be saying this cause youre jealous of him by any chance? If you dont like him then why the hell are you on this page reading about him? If you dont like him then dont be reading stuff about him simple as that.

i'm pretty sure the people who are dissing him r not jealous...they're just stating their opinion. But i like Justin, he's one of the good guys. I don't understand why really good people are being bashed in this world now. The NEW THING always has to be hated now. It's a popular thing that people do...only some though...i don't like it
