LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Justin Bieber was recently named the third “Most Powerful Celebrity” on the planet by Forbes magazine, and at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, he told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson being on the list is an honor.
“It’s crazy,” Justin said of being on the list (behind only Jennifer Lopez and Oprah Winfrey). “I mean, just to have that kind of recognition is great.
“All I’m doing is singing and doing what I love,” Justin added. “So to have that kind of recognition is great.”
But being on the Forbes list isn’t the only cool thing to happen to Justin of late. He also joined boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., as the champ defended his WBA light middleweight title in Las Vegas on May 6.
“You got to walk out with him?” Shaun asked.
“Yes,” Justin answered.
“Tell me, what that’s like?” Shaun asked.
“It was crazy, I mean, it was in Vegas, and I got to walk out with him,” Justin explained. “It was me him and 50 [Cent], it was great. I had a lot of fun, he’s a great guy.”
Justin may be friends with a boxer, but he won’t be getting in the ring.
“I can’t mess up the face,” he laughed.
