The 17-year-old singer said in a new interview that he saw himself being a young father.

Justin Bieber may only be 17 years old, but the singer is already looking ahead.

In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, Bieber opened up about where he saw himself in the next five years -- when he is in his early twenties. His answer was somewhat surprising, considering how young he still is.

"Well, by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family," Bieber said. "I want to be a young dad. I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do -- to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25."

He added, "One thing: I'm not looking to get married now."

The interview covered a lot of ground, including the charity work he does, his upbringing and how influential his mother has been throughout his life. When asked about whether he thought he was more influential than President Barack Obama or the Dalai Lama as a recent report had suggested, Bieber said, "No, I think those people are very influential and popular. I'm just lucky to be in the position I'm in."

For right now, music is his sole focus, but that doesn't mean he's willing to branch out to other industries in the future. Bieber said that he "definitely" wants "to eventually start a clothing line or a show line" but at the moment, "nothing is in the works right now."
