Justin Bieber on dating: 'It's up to the guy to be romantic'

Canadian sensation Justin Bieber has revealed that being romantic gives him a sense of masculinity and authority, and thinks it's always "up to the guy" to provide that side of a relationship.

Speaking about dating, the superstar explained that taking control is sexy and he loves to be the one to treat his girlfriend instead of the other way around:

"I think it's up to the guy to be romantic. I think it's the guy's responsibility to take her out. It can't be the other way around. That would take away my masculinity; I feel if that would happen."

''I think that the most romantic things to do for someone are the things that you spend time on. Like having a picnic where you bring all the stuff they like. You make it something that she's going to remember so she can tell all of her friends. Stuff she can say, 'He did this for me!' That's great."

The 'Boyfriend' heartthrob added to Gulf News that growing up with his mother, Pattie Mallette, and having such a close bond with her made him sensitive: "Sensitive and romantic ... I guess I grew up with my mum, so she influenced me a lot, so growing up and having your mum always around you, you become a sensitive guy. So I think there's ups and downs to it." Watch Bieber and Will.i.Am's collaborative video for '#thatPOWER' below:
