Justin Bieber has millions of fans all around the world, but when it comes to his friends, the pop star says he’s fine with just a few.
"I get good vibes from people all the time, and I probably could get along with them and be their friend, but now I just don't trust anybody,” the singer told Teen Vogue in a new interview. "Literally, my phone never rings. I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with.”
Despite the fact that the 19-year-old can count his number of friends on one hand, he’s perfectly content with the circle he keeps.
"I don't need a bunch of friends to make me happy,” he admits. “I just need the people close to me that I love, that's all."
And although he split from Selena Gomez earlier this year, it’s easy to assume the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer remains one of his few trusted confidantes.
In fact, the “Baby” crooner recently reunited with his ex after a string of bad behavior and unfortunate incidents left Justin defending his actions to his millions of fans.
The two reconnected at Selena’s home in LA on March 28, just hours before Justin hopped a plane to Germany. TMZ claims that "Justin's chauffeur-driven party van was spotted parked behind the gates of Selena's driveway for more than an hour."

Their rendezvous came only days before Selena released a breakup anthem off of her upcoming album that could very well be about her famous former beau. “Our love was made to rule the world / You came and broke the perfect girl / Forget you ever knew my name,” the 20-year-old singer and actress croons in “Rule the World.”
While it’s possible their meeting means there’s a reconciliation in the works, Justin finds comfort in the fact that, to his friends, he’s treated as himself instead of a superstar.
“They don’t see me as Justin Bieber, but just see me as Justin,” the star tells the mag.
