Although the Canadian pop star isn’t a legal adult quite yet (he turns 18 in March), he recently told V Magazine that “people need to know I’m not a kid anymore.”
“I’m still learning,” he told the mag, admitting he doesn’t feel “completely grown-up” yet.
As for his career?
“I want to be successful and be great at what I do. But eventually, I want to become the best at what I do,” he revealed. “I want to be better than anybody who’s ever done it. And in order to do that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can. Because for me, I work so hard and this consumes my life—it’s not worth it if I’m not the best.”
