"What does that really mean, to be famous? In general, fame can tear you apart, so you can never really feel like you're famous," Bieber told Vibe magazine.
"When people start acting like they're famous, that's when they start losing it.
''I don't like giving too much personal information about where I live and the cars I drive. There are a lot of people in this world that aren't good people, and all they need to do is a little research.
''People hiding in garbage cans overnight to catch [pictures] of me; crazy things happen. You can't give out too much personal information.''
Bieber recently expressed a desire to take on more acting roles in the future.
