Justin Bieber Billboard Cover Shoot

By CHANDRA PRICE

Justin Bieber goes solo on the cover of the June 14 issue of Billboard, talking about his rise to fame, his fans and his idol Michael Jackson.

"For me, he's the greatest, he's the King of Pop! And everything I do, I do to be the greatest," says The Biebs.

He even wrote his 2012 version of MJ's "Billie Jean", about the woman who accused him of fathering her child and later recanting her claims. "It was something I wanted to get off my chest and I could just say it in a song... and get my point across without having to worry about the words I'm using in an interview."
