There's already been a lot of talk about Justin Bieber growing up on his new album, and now the teenage pop star is adding a pretty big milestone to the mix. In an interview with London's Daily Telegraph, Bieber recently confirmed that he is now a high school graduate.
"I just finished high school," the 18-year-old said. "I passed my test — I'm free! It was hard doing school and work every day."
Bieber was able to finish school on time despite his decidedly busy schedule thanks to the help of tutors who accompanied him on the road. The global heartthrob said he was determined to finish school for his mother, even though he'd personally rather see the world than read about it in books.
"That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her," he said. "I mean, this kind of lifestyle has given me a different perspective on life. I've been able to travel the world. At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I'm really not into that stuff. I like to be out there."
There's no word yet on whether Bieber plans to go to the prom, but we're sure he wouldn't have any problem finding a date.
