Since Bieber makes headlines frequently, the "As Long As You Love Me" singer admits that celebrity has made him more reluctant to share details about himself. "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 and then they can [exploit you]," he says. "People hiding in garbage cans overnight to catch [pictures] of me; crazy things happen. You can't give out too much personal information."
But some of the stuff that people would consider personal — like how much money they have in the bank — is already known about Bieber. For example, we know that he earned a whopping $55 million between May 2011 and May 2012, according to Forbes. The magazine ranked the teen heartthrob third on its list of the highest-paid celebrities under 30. (Taylor Swift nabbed the top spot.) Most people would consider that kind of cash cause for celebration, but the Biebs was unimpressed. "I wasn't like, 'Oh, that's awesome!" he says. "I could [not] really care less."
Does that mean he wouldn't mind sharing his fortune with the rest of us?
