Justin Bieber, 18-year-old Canadian crooner and an official high school graduate, said he is focused on spreading his blessings to others.

The young singer spoke with British publication the Telegraph about his most recent accomplishment, graduating high school.

"I just finished high school," Bieber said in the recent interview. "I passed my test – I'm free! It was hard doing school and work every day."

Although the singer has accomplished a number of feats in the music world, he said graduating high school was important. Bieber's education was important to his mother, who inspired him to finish high school while balancing a full-time professional music schedule.

"That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her," Bieber said. "I mean, this kind of lifestyle has given me a different perspective on life."

Still, Bieber admitted that he was a bigger fan of performing than doing school work.

"I've been able to travel the world. At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading," Bieber said. "I'm really not into that stuff. I like to be out there."

Despite his own qualms with education, Bieber told the Telegraph that he wants to help other kids get their own education.

"I love the fact young people can help other young people," he said. "I grew up without a lot of money. There are kids around the world who don't have the chance to go to school. I want to be able to help them, you know?"

Bieber has used his fame to give back to children in other ways. The international star is associated with 20 charities.

For Bieber, his blessings in life inspire him to give back.

"I'm so blessed to be in this position," he told the British paper. "With everything I do, I try to give back."
