Pop star Justin Bieber hopes his new Believe Acoustic album will make people focus on his music and appreciate him as an artist.
The 18-year-old hopes his fans talk about his music rather than his personal life and thinks the record will prove his real talent to critics, reported Daily Star.
"It's just good music. It just shows that I wasn't made, I was found on YouTube and it shows people music is music. That's what you need to focus on - listening to the music. I'm an artist. I'm not - I'm a singer and I want to show people what I love to do," he said.
The Baby hitmaker, whose on-off relationship with Selena Gomez has been the subject of much recent speculation, says the record shows off his raw side.
"I wanted to basically strip it down so it's just me and an acoustic guitar. Some of it is me and a piano but most of it is just raw me. I think the fans really like it because it's just kind of how I started. I started with just me on the internet."
