He’s arguably the biggest act in pop music, and Justin Bieber is thrilled to be able to provide massive amounts of wealth for his formerly poor family.

The “One Less Lonely Girl” singer explained, “My family are all poor, so the cycle would have continued. My kids would have been poor, and their kids would have been too.”

“I feel I broke the cycle, and when you get to break the cycle, you don’t go back. If I hadn’t found music my life would have been bad,” he continued.

Bieber also noted that he isn't interested in booze as a way to have fun. “Drinking is definitely one way, but it’s not for me. I still want people to think I’m a good person, a good influence. I want to be around tomorrow.”
