"Haters keep on hating, cause somebody's gotta do it".
Everything is good, I'm definitely - me personally and mentally - I'm a great guy now. I'm more of a person who is definitely more positive.
I'm in the studio, back and forth, continuously, just having fun. I'm going to continue to make great dance videos and just be me.
The new album is called 'F.A.M.E.': Forgiving All My Enemies. Basically, just being able to witness my success, failure and success again. Being able to see me going from my best times to my worst times and being able to overcome it and growing into a man, as I was doing it.
[on the GMA incident]: Yes, I got very emotional and I apologize for acting like that. I felt like, 'OK, they told us this just so they can get us on the show so they can exploit me.' I kind of took it very, very hard. And I kept my composure throughout the interview, although you could see me upset, you know. I kept my composure and did my performances, and when I got back, I just let off, like, steam in the back.
[on writing the song "Disturbia" which he later gave to Rihanna] It's fun being creative and even if you have a concept in your head to write about, you can write it and give it to someone else because it might not personally fit you, but it might be an idea you have. So with (Rihanna) that was an idea I had. I just wanted to go totally left and kind of weird, and that's what I threw at her. (2008).
[on Justin Bieber] He reminds me a lot of me when I was younger. I kind of try and be the big brother and make him go the right way and have a great time.
