“I’m crazy, I’m nuts,” teen heartthrob Justin Bieber tells Vanity Fair.
“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.”
The 16-year-old tells the magazine that his mind is so active that he sometimes he suffers from insomnia. It happens because he begins to “think about all the things I didn’t have time to think about during the day — like family and God …”

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. I don’t often fake it—what’s me is me….I know I have to give up a lot of myself, or a lot of a private life.”
