First Chris Brown compared himself to Justin Bieber. Now, Justin Bieber is comparing himself to Jay-Z. Confused?

So are we.

In attempts to make Beliebers of us all, Biebs covers the new issue of Teen Vogue  and deflects rumors about his personal life with a move that is very Hov.

As a 19-year-old pop star who can boast the most followers of anyone on Twitter, bring in millions of dollars and sell out arenas, he makes clear that responding to the fodder isn't a top priority.

"I don't need to address every speculation," he said. "Remember when Cam'ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn't even respond. Why didn't he respond? Because he's Jay-Z."

While the Canadian crooner is hardly involved in anything close to the aforementioned rap diss, his recent odd behavior (sneaking monkeys into Germany, trying to attack the paparazzi) has drawn the ire of the limelight glare.

To keep from breaking his fitted-cap "I will not lose" stance, Bieber turns to Twitter and his fans.

"My Twitter is really nice, I have so many fans that I rarely ever see a nasty tweet," he explained. "I don't read YouTube comments because those can get you sad. I see so much stuff on the Internet, sometimes I just want to go to Twitter and just go after people. But then I just think twice: If someone is dissing me, I'm going to make this person way more famous by tweeting them."

Bieber is currently on the international leg of his Believe tour, which hits Frankfurt, Germany, tonight, followed by Dortmund on April 5.
