Justin Bieber has been asked to star in upcoming movie “Fifty Shades Of Grey.”

The 18-year-old star was appearing on the Jonathan Ross’s chat show in the United Kingdom when he revealed film bosses have asked him to act in the motion picture version of the S&M novel.

During the program which aired on Saturday night, Bieber confessed that he could have played Christian Grey. He admitted: “They actually want me to be in the movie!”

The part would be far from the innocent image he has portrayed in his pop career so far. In the book, Christian has a room full of whips, handcuffs and masks for use on submissive women.

Bieber also revealed to the presenter that he has banned himself from discussing his love life. He is currently dating 20-year-old actress Selena Gomez but said he does not want to anger his admirers by talking about their romance.

He said: “At the end of the day I’m always going to be their Justin, regardless of who I’m dating.
“I like to make sure my fans are comfortable.”

The heartthrob wants to be known for his abilities as a musician and not his good looks.

He added: “I love being young and being in the spotlight but I want to be taken seriously as an artist, be known for my music and not necessarily known for a flick of my hair.”

Building a home

Meanwhile, Bieber and Gomez are building a home together in Los Angeles. The showbiz couple have decided to purchase a plot of land in Tarzana with a view of the San Fernando Valley, and plan to begin building on the site soon.

A source told Hollywoodlife.com: “Justin and Selena are building a massive home together in Tarzana. It’s just a dirt lot right now with some pipes, but it has a generous panoramic view of the San Fernando Valley.”

Building the home there would mean Gomez could stay close to her mother, who lives in the nearby Woodland Hills area.

Bieber recently revealed one of the things he likes most about the former ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ actress was that she was a good listener.

He said: “I'm attracted to someone who's a good listener, who is there for me and who pays attention to what I am saying. Also, I'm very affectionate so need someone affectionate like me."

However, he also likes her physical appearance.

He added: “She's hot. Of course, every guy likes their girl to be hot, which Selena is. But I like to mess around and pull jokes, so I like to be around people who make me laugh.” – Bang Showbiz
