Bieber book to examine singer's faith
A new non-fiction book will examine teen pop star Justin Bieber's belief in Christianity that he has referred to in interviews and when speaking to fans.
The book, titled Belieber! Faith, Fame and the Heart of Justin Bieber, will be released in September 27 by Christian book publisher Worthy Publishing.
The book is being written by American journalist Cathleen Falsani, who has covered religious topics for several years and has interviewed well-known figures from singer Bono to President Barack Obama when he was still an Illinois state senator.
Bieber, 17, will not be interviewed for the book.
Meanwhile, Bieber has hit the studio with producer Tricky Stewart to cut songs for his new album.
He is working on his second studio album after his first record My World 2.0 garnered chart success worldwide.
In a bid to move away from his teeny-bop glory, Justin is collaborating with cutting-edge producers like Tricky Stewart and the more underground Soundz.
He is so elated about joining forces with them he took to Twitter to express his delight.
"in the studio writing with @TrickyStewart - last time this happened a song called BABY happened. LEGGO. #believe," Justin tweeted.
"At the studio writing for my album with @trickystewart and @soundzdope follow them ... #BELIEVE (sic)."
Bieber has collaborated with singer Chris Brown and super producer Kanye West this year. These musical moves suggest he is interested in taking a more adult direction with his newest works.
Producer Tricky has crafted several hit tunes in recent years including Beyoncé Knowles' Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It) and Rihanna's Umbrella.
Justin is taking an active part in the production as well and is excited about entering new creative planes with this album.
"[I'm] writing about how I feel and producing," Justin said to MTV News in June. "I've been producing on my laptop and on my computer. I've been really into it and, hopefully, this next album will be huge."
Justin's newest album is rumoured to be entitled Believe, but the name has not been confirmed.
